CS 6301: Special Topics in Computer Science - Security of CPS & IoT Systems
Websites: Fall 2020
This course covers security issues relating to cyber-physical systems (CPS) and the Internet of Things (IoT). The instructor will introduce various control and IoT systems (including industrial control systems, autonomous cars, drones, and smart home devices) and their security. Students are expected to review and give presentations on papers approved by the instructor. While discussing the papers, students will learn to understand hardware and software components of CPS and IoT systems, attack surfaces of the systems, cyber and physical attacks that exploit the attack surfaces, and how to analyze and improve the security of the systems against the attacks. A significant part of this course will be a hands-on course project in CPS/IoT security on which students will work in groups.
