CSCI 2390 - Privacy-Conscious Computer Systems
We will examine research papers on distributed system design, privacy-preserving, and secure computing techniques, and discuss how to apply these ideas in practice. The goal is to understand if, and how we can better protect the sensitive data we entrust to computer systems, both against leaks and against unauthorized or unethical use. We will look at web services, datacenter systems, distributed communication systems, and machine learning systems. During class, you will present and discuss papers, finish a set of hands-on assignments, work on a research project, and present your project at the end of the semester. Pre-requisite: CSCI 0330 and CSCI 1380 or instructor permission. CSCI 1670/1690 and CSCI 1660 are recommended.
