The integrated lecture Protection in Networked Systems ‒ Trust, Resilience, and Privacy covers the topics of computational trust, resilient and anonymous networks, and collaborative defense mechanisms. By attending this course, the students will be able to understand the problems and solutions in the context of networked systems. The course content will consider the concept of End-to-End systems emphasizing on users, devices, networks, and applications or services.

Course content
