This course is offered at the University of Trento by the security group in the framework of the three main Master offered by Trento (Security and Privacy, Internet Technology and Architecture, Service Design and Engineering) within the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (ICT Labs).
See the UNITN S&P EIT page for further information on the Security and Privacy courses.
See the current ICT Innovation Course for further information.
Illustrate (some) steps of product design and developement and guide students, forming multi-disciplinary teams, into the development of a “product” as opposed to just a “project”. This course should allow students to experience what it takes to transform an idea into a product.
The following idea by Samy Kamkar has been selected for the 2015 course.
“KeySweeper is a stealthy Arduino-based device, camouflaged as a functioning USB wall charger, that wirelessly and passively sniffs, decrypts, logs and reports back (over GSM) all keystrokes from any Microsoft wireless keyboard in the vicinity. All keystrokes are logged online and locally. SMS alerts are sent upon trigger words, usernames or URLs, exposing passwords. KeySweeper continues to operate using its internal battery. A web based tool allows live keystroke monitoring.” See Samy Kamkar's webpage.
|Creation||Concept's Idea Canvas (up to 10/30 grade points)||Each team will produce a concept's idea canvas to clarify the key strong points on their product||Key-9 , with the most focussed and low-cost product, and Sniffpy with the most integrated engineered product.|
|Design||Product design and architecture (up to 10/30 grade points)||Teams will produce a detailed poster explaining how their product will work|
|Production||Product prototype (up to 15/30 grade points)||Each team will have a small budget for hardware/software and will have to actually present a working product||Key-9 was the least obvious one (all others focussed on spies and law enforcement)|
