The security lab offers students the opportunity to learn how to analyze the system security of Linux-based systems, with a focus on embedded systems. It covers topics from hardware security and debug facilities and then moves on to software security issues in applications and finally the kernel.
Students will have to solve multiple challenges, where a system has to be analyzed and then compromised. Basic Linux and C programming knowledge is required.
The lab is organized as a practical course (PR) and students will be working individually with an ARM development board (Raspberry Pi II).
