This course addresses both security and privacy in networks, under practical and theoretical dimensions. After positioning security vs privacy, some fundamental mechanisms are presented for securing networks (IPsec, SSL, VPN, PKI, filtering), and for preserving privacy in networks and digital identity management (TOR, blind and group signature). Useful basis as well as research aspects (RFID, blockchain) are given through labs, exercises and lectures.
At the end of the lectures, students are supposed to know:
• The fundamentals of security and privacy in networking area, and digital identity management
• security and privacy challenges in few hot research topics (RFID, blockchain)
• how to practically configure an IPsec VPN, and a traffic filter
• Useful basis as well as research aspects (RFID, blockchain) are given through labs, exercises and lectures. Optional labs are also proposed for students to practice on their own in the security and privacy domains.
Lecturers: Maryline Laurent (TSP), Olivier Paul (TSP), Joaquin Garcia-Alfaro (TSP)
