(ONLY IN GERMAN - 27.02.2018)
Im Internet of Things (IoT) werden physische Gegenstände über digitale Netzwerke, wie das Internet, vernetzt und virtuell verfügbar gemacht. Neben der einfachen und kostensparenden Netzwerkanbindung dieser Gegenstände ist die Entwicklung von automatisierten digitalen Netzwerkdiensten, die den zusätzlichen Nutzen der Vernetzung realisieren, Ziel des IoT. Das IoT geht einher mit Begriffen wie Industrie 4.0, oder Ubiquitous Computing.
Die LV deckt insbesondere die folgenden Inhalte ab:
- IoT Netzwerkarchitektur und Design
- Smarte Objekte
- IoT Access Technologien
- Applikationsprotokolle für das IoT
- Datenanalyse im IoT
- IoT Datenanalyse und Management
- IoT in der Industrie

Application Security ILV

Lector: Tobias Buchberger, BSc MSc, Silvia Schmidt, BSc MSc

3 SWS   4 ECTS

Lecture contents

Based on the lecture "Secure Software Development" and the corresponding exercise from the first semester, measures and techniques along the life cycle of an application are discussed in order to detect or avoid security vulnerabilities in design, implementation, deployment, upgrade or maintenance of an application or in the underlying system. In addition, the course deals with security aspects at runtime of applications as well as aspects of DevOps or DevSecOps (Development, Security and Operations). These techniques will be further deepened by means of practical exercises. In particular, the following technologies will be considered:
- Virtualization (e.g. KVM, Proxmox VE)
- Container technologies (system vs. application containers)
- LXC, Docker, and related tools
- Security Automation, Infrastructure as Code (e.g. Ansible)
- Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD)
- Fuzzing
- CIS benchmarks
