Art: Master-Seminar
Semester weekly hours: 2
Unterrichtssprache/n: English (main), German


Traditional security architectures often are based on controlling access at static, network-based perimeters (e.g. VPN-gateways). Evolving zero trust architectures shift the focus to controlling access based on the resources offered in the network. For that purpose, the component offering a resource shall be enabled to assess the trustworthiness of a device requesting access.
In this seminar, we explore existing technologies to verifiable prove certain security properties of user-end devices.
The format is intended to represent an academic conference including paper writing (based in part on independent practical research), review, rebuttal, revision, presentation, and discussion.
Possible topic areas include:
  • Confidential Computing Solutions
  • Technology Specific Frameworks for Device and Platform Security
Students are welcome to suggest own topics.
