Faculty Development Program on
Secure Systems Engineering
December 5th to 14th 2017
Indian Institute of Technology Madras
In the coming years a large number of devices would require to be connected to the Internet and a significant portion of the computation would be outsourced to third party clouds. Security will form a essential requirement to make this feasible. However designing a secure system is a challenge because a single weak link could compromise the entire system. The weakest link could either be in the algorithms, the device, or in the network.
This workshop provides multi-faceted perspective, which is a requirement for ensuring security. It would look at designing of security algorithms and communication protocols, as well as implementation aspects of secure systems.
