Course Projects


Students will work in groups of 1-4 on a security-related project. Projects may involve assessing an existing system, designing and implementing a secure application, or surveying research and policy issues on a focuses topic.

See the list of project ideas to get started, but you are encouraged to propose any relevant topic you wish. Grouops are encouraged to meet with the course staff to discuss project ideas long before the proposal is due. There are some good reasons to make sure the course staff approves of your proposal.

The size of the project should scale as the square root of the number of people in the group (i.e., a 4-person team should be twice as productive as an individual).
