Praktikum Rechnersicherheit (Practical Course for Computer Security)

This workgroup was formed as continuation of the course „Sicherheit in Rechnersystemen" (Security in Computer Systems) and is planning to pass on its knowledge and experience in a new course.

This project is being supported by the Vice President of TU Berlin within the „Offensive OWL" (Push for Knowledge Through Learning) as a student project.

The Plan

The experience from computer security contests which can be transferred to the practical work of our graduates, and the compilation of a series of lectures on the topic should be made available to a broader group of students. In particular, it should be ensured that the experience is not lost after the current participants graduate.

Based on the lecture series from the working group a university course is being developed. The transfer of theoretical knowledge to given problems is not always easy, especially when it comes to security analysis. Experiments performed on real-world alike systems enable the evaluation and safe application of theoretical constructs.

For this goal, a "Praktikum" (practical course) with 6 Credit Points is most adequate. Pre-existing theoretical knowledge should be solidified by a multitude of practical exercises. The tasks will be worked on in small groups in class as well as by participants on their own outside the attendance time. Furthermore, it is planned that participants familiarize themselves with a specific subject and and give presentations to each other. In addition to the practical skills, participants should gain the ability to evaluate the risks, costs and benefits of a particular security measure. Finally, the acquired abilities and skills can be applied by participating in a security contest like CIPHER.

The Realization

Despite being supported by student assistants and university staff, the course is primarily designed by students of the AG Rechnersicherheit. Everyone who is interested in how a course is developed is invited to attend our regular meeting.

The course was first held in the winter semester of 2007/2008.
