- Course objectives
- The aim of this subject is to understand details of smart cards security, secure authentication and authorization, security of hardware modules, trusted boot, analysis of malware and rootkits (both black-box and gray-box), reverse engineering of binary applications, multilevel security and file/disk encryption. Student should be able to apply the gained knowledge in a practice based on experience gained from laboratory a project work.
- Side channel attacks (timing, power and fault analysis)
- Basics of smart cards (PC/SC, APDU, basic applet – JavaCard & .net card & MULTOS)
- Secure programs on JavaCard platform
- Secure authentication and authorization (common protocols, secure implementation, attacks)
- Hardware Security Modules (HSM), PKCS#11 API
- Trusted boot (TPM, trusted boot process, remote attestation)
- Black-box analysis of malware (infection vectors, analysis of environment, network analysis)
- Grey-box analysis of malware (analysis of memory dumps, tools)
- Reverse engineering of binary applications (decompiler, disassembler, native-code debugging, binary patching)
- Windows and Linux Rootkits (User-mode, kernel-mode, Hypervisor-level, software vs. hardware level, bootkits)
- Multilevel security (isolation, confinement, security kernels)
- File and disk encryption (Common architectures, used cryptographic modes, typical attacks)
- Teaching methods
- lectures, seminars in a security lab, homeworks
- Assessment methods
- Two hours per week are scheduled for lecture, two hours per week scheduled for seminars, otherwise students work on projects, homework etc. in their free time. There are 6 homeworks and collaborative project. 50 % of points are required to pass the course.
