Seminar - Selected Topics in (Mobile) Security

Title: Selected Topics in (Mobile) Security

In this Seminar we will discuss recent research results in various practical and theoretical areas of security. You can find a preliminary list of these topics below. In addition, we will pick up on a few security-related topics that are less concerned with research results but are rather of a more general interest. This year these topic will be "Censorship and Website Blocking", "Electronic ID Cards", and "Electronic Health Cards".
