It is offered in the framework of the Security and Privacy Master| of the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (ICT Labs). It is also available in the normalMaster Degree in Computer Science at the University of Trento.
Please se the current course on Offensive Technologies for up to date information.
The course aims at advancing students’ concrete knowledge of attacks on operating systems, networks, and applications witha significant spur of creativity. Security notices (and even proof of concept exploits) are a little more than research ideas. They tells that something may be possible but do not explain the details (for obviosu security reasons). The students must use their creativity to understand what can possibly work and transforms the gaps and holes in the description into a workable product.
This course is also part of the 10K students , an European (so far) initiative to improve cyber-security education.
The purpose of the 2015/2016 course is the analysis of Governmental Malware.
This is a practical hand-on course. There would be few lectures and mostly they would be presentations by students themselves to report how they are going.
This is an eligible course. This course is available for 12 credits (as the Research Project course for normal CS students).
