OVERVIEW

This Course integrates technological skills in the area of electronics for security. Notions related to theory and implementation of cryptosystems are combined with applications of computer-security, ranging from digital signature to computer forensics. At the same time, the course also provides professional and scientific competence in the design, realization and testing of electronic systems with advanced sensor abilities.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Basic Notions in Cryptology. Algorithms and cryptosystems. Computer security Protocols (digital signature, electronic voting). Embedded electronics for security (smartcards, biometry).

Cyber security and techniques for the protection of networked infrastructures, especially corporate-size. Electronics tools for computer forensics, advanced methods for intelligence.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

This class aims to provide awareness about CyberSecurity and a professional profile endowed with technical insights.

The specific learning outcomes include:

- State of the Art algorithms, together with implementation capabilities in digital architectures

- modern service protocols such as Digital Signature, two-factor Authentication, and Electronic Vote

- security of complex systems, intergated with technical and behavioural competences

The learning outcomes will be verified through a battery of tests covering the whole teaching program.

EXAM DESCRIPTION

Written form exam by multiple/open tests

Students with learning disorders ("disturbi specifici di apprendimento", DSA) will be allowed to use specific modalities and supports that will be determined on a case-by-case basis in agreement with the delegate of the Engineering courses in the Committee for the Inclusion of Students with Disabilities.

Particular attention will be devoted to working students, with whom the scedule of exam sessions will be agreed upon appointment and might possibly adopt special modalities that can take into account their impossibility to attend lessons. 

ASSESSMENT METHODS

Tests and open questions allow to verify the successful acquisition of both technical competence and design capabilities; at the same time, the exam confirms the proper acquisition of a correct awareness about the various scopes that characterize Cyber Security.
