|Kick off meeting: 24. October (Wednesday) at 15:30h in our seminar room (36-438)|
The Project: Performance Evaluation of Distributed Systems this year will focus on security aspects of distributed systems. During the kick off meeting, organization details are going to be provided and, since there are limited places available, please make sure you can attend this meeting. The project class will start on January next year and it is necessary for us to know how many students are interested in order to prepare the infrastructure accordingly.
The project will be composed by different labs, where attacks and countermeasures are going to be performed and analyzed. The main goal is to be able to understand how theory and praxis relate, and build some necessary skills for detecting security weaknesses in order to fix them.
Students with Communication Systems major have priority, but students from other specializations are also welcome as long as there are places still available. Basic programming skills and network knowledge are necessary. The labs will use Unix-like operating system and some previous knowledge would help you. We will, however, provide some basic information and show you how to search for more. So, if you don't have yet experience, but is willing to make the effort of learning it, you'd have the tools.
And don't forget: exact time schedule and organizational details are going to be provided during the kick off meeting, so make sure you can attend it. Other questions you may have, we can gladly discuss on the 24th October at 15:30h in our seminar room (36-438).
