UMBC Center for Information Security and Assurance

Cybersecurity Research Seminar - CMSC 491/691

Course Description

Working in small groups under the mentorship of technical clients from government and industry, each student will formulate, carry out, and present original research on current cybersecurity problems of interest to the nation. Clients will provide a list of unclassified research problems, and students may also suggest their own problems. This course will engage students in important challenging cybersecurity problems. Students will learn how to apply research techniques, think clearly about cybersecurity issues, formulate and analyze potential solutions, and communicate their results.

The course will be run in a synchronized distance fashion from special classrooms coordinating with our partner schools and our technical clients. Research groups will collaborate using an appropriate file-sharing technology (e.g., HUBzero).
