June 2016 Education Session
Presented by Vancouver Security SIG, (ISC)² Vancouver Chapter, and ISSA Vancouver Chapter
Friday June 10th from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM (PDT)
Featured Presentation Topic:
How UBC Computer Security Students Help to Improve Security of Real World Systems
Speakers: Konstantin Beznosov, MacKenzie Judd, Calvin Chan and teammates, Nikola Radoicic
Computer security is a very rapidly evolving field, with technologies, tools, and risks changing yearly, if not monthly. Yet, if computer security students only learn the principles, they will be unable to develop higher levels of knowledge, such as application, analysis, and evaluation. To resolve this predicament, UBC's undergraduate computer security course has been designed to have a term project as a major educational component. Furthermore, the students are provided with a safe environment to engage in security analysis (including pen testing) of real world systems. In this part of the presentation, Prof. Konstantin Beznosov (the designer and instructor of the UBC security course for last 12 years) will describe the course design. He will specifically focus on the project component, how it has evolved over the years from ad-hock adventure, with sudden left turns, into a streamlined safe process that results not only in students applying the course material from the lectures and home assignments, but also in the improved security posture of real systems.
After the networking break, there will be three presentations by students, who will showcase their projects for the course. This part will give you a taste of kinds of security analysis (and design) students do for their projects. The preliminary list of project topics is as follows:
-- Security analysis of Neurio home intelligence by MacKenzie Judd
-- Design of smartphone unlocking mechanism by Calvin Chan and teammates
-- Security analysis of mobile carrier apps by Nikola Radoicic
There are limited seats at this venue so you must RSVP to attend. If the session is fully booked you will only be offered an option to register for the waitlist.
