Dr. Saxena is offering a brand new special topics course for graduate students, CSCE 689: Secure Authentication Systems, in Spring 2022. This is a research-centered course covering a wide variety of authentication techniques, and the strengths and pitfalls of these techniques. Student groups will be presenting research papers, and pursuing a practical project on a topic of their interest relevant to authentication, with the potential to convert these projects into research publications depending on their merit. No exams! Fully online (so no COVID worries!). Please consider enrolling for the course and learn about some cool research in one of the most important areas of cybersecurity — authentication breaks are often used as a stepping stone for many other devastating cyber attacks (e.g., the SolarWinds and Twitter hacks of 2020).
