Advanced Topics in Computer Engineering - Trustworthy Computing

Ruby B. Lee

How can we design computer systems to be more trustworthy and secure? We consider cloud computing systems, smartphones and IoT (Internet-of-Things) devices, integrating security in hardware, software and networking components. We discuss concepts like self-protecting data, dynamic information flow tracking, thwarting information leakage through side-channel attacks, preserving availability, detecting abnormal behavior, novel ways of authenticating users, security verification, and designing secure processors, caches, memory systems and virtual machines. Suitable for students interested in security, computer architecture or system design.
