goals

Using methods of research-oriented learning students gain the ability to work on a pre-defined scientific topic based on current research publications. This includes a presentation of the contents as well as a discussion of critical aspects of the work. Furthermore, summarizing these insights in a written document helps to improve the skills of acamdemic writing.

content

The seminar combines current scientific work in the context of Internet anonymity and privacy with realistic problem statements. Examples of this are open attack vectors on the Tor anonymity system and resulting security risks for users, as well as methods for efficient privacy consent management. The combination of scientific and real-world problem statements allows to better understand existing challenges with the goal of providing long-term solutions for future systems.
