Communication services and applications are increasingly leveraging the wireless medium. Given this development, the importance of information and network security in the wireless domain grows. Providing secure communication and network services in wireless environments creates challenges that often differ considerably from traditional wired systems.
After this course, the students will be able to describe, classify, and assess security goals and attacks on wireless communication and in wireless networks. The students will be able to describe the security architectures of different wireless systems and networks, in particular 802.?11, GSM/UMTS, GPS, RFID, ad hoc and sensor networks. They will be able to reason about security protocols for wireless networks and can implement certain mechanisms to secure them.
The first lecture will take place on Apr. 14th, 2015, at 10:15 in ID 04/445. The exercises sessions will start one week later.
The slides of the lecture and the material for the exercises will be provided on Moodle. Information on how to access the Moodle pages will be provided in the first lecture.
