System and IoT Security

System and IoT Security

In this seminar, each student will perform a literature study and analysis on a timely topic in the area of system and IoT security based on a selection of scientific papers. To do this, students need to summarize, compare, and validate the work presented in these publications and write a report in the form of a scientific research paper. In addition, each student will present his or her seminar work in an oral presentation of approximately 20 minutes to the other participants of the seminar and answer questions related to his or her work.
