This course requires no prior experience in security and privacy,
but assumes the willingness to seek out and read background material as needed.
This year's seminar will focus on peer-to-peer systems and social
networks. Example topics include: anonymizing networks, distributed social networks,
secure routing in p2p networks, reputation systems, privacy in social networking sites such as
Facebook, and more!
This seminar will be driven by student-led roundtable discussions of papers. Building on knowledge gained in class,
students will work on research projects in groups and complete a
conference-like paper at the end of the semester.
