COINS summer school on authentication in Metochi 2016

The second COINS summer school is over. It was held successfully at the Metochi Study Centre on the Greek island of Lesvos, operated by University of Agder, one of the consortium members of COINS.

The topic of the summer school – authentication – was chosen by input from COINS students.

Five invited lecturers, sixteen students from COINS and SWITS, and two supervisors contributed to the programme. The topics of the lectures were:

  • Mike Just, Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, UK: Usable security and authentication
  • Paris Kitsos, Digital IC dEsign and Systems Lab (DICES Lab), Computer and Informatics Engineering Dept (CIED), TEI of Western Greece, Patras, Greece: Hardware authenticity – Detection of Hardware Trojans and PUFs
  • Herbert Leitold, A-SIT, Austria: Federated identity management, STORK, eIDAS
  • Ravi Borgaonkar, University of Oxford: Authentication and related threats in 2G/3G/4G networks
  • Yong Guan, Iowa State University, USA: Network Forensics – Challenges and Open Problems

Most of the participants had used the opportunity to pay a visit to ENISA in Athens on the way to the summer school on the island.
