Title:  Topics in Wireless and Mobile Network Security

This short course will overview several fundamental aspects of security and privacy in wireless and mobile networks.
The course will begin with an overview of basic concepts in security and cryptography.
We will then cover end-node mobility in mostly-wired networks (e.g., in the Internet and GSM) and then transition to discuss a number of security issues in  Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs),  Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs) and RFID devices.
We will conclude with the discussion of privacy-preserving techniques in MANETs and RFID systems.

(2) Yuri Ismailov

* Received his MsCS (1979) and PhD (CS) (1988) from Electrical Engineering University in St Petersburg, Russia. In 1991 joined network simulation team in the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. Research focus on modeling and simulation of mobile networks and performance evaluation. Joined Ericsson Research in 1996. Research focus on mobility mechanisms for Internet and application of them to 3GPP architecture. Participating in and leading various projects including EU projects, supervision of Master Thesis students, and short courses in mobility management.

Mobility Management

This short course deals with the fundamental concepts involved in mobility management and provide practical insights into different mobility management mechanisms in operation. In particular we will deal with the solutions developed by the Internet Engineering Task force (IETF) and 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standardization forums from the point of view of how these affect the design of various Mobility Management schemes. We will undertake a deep analysis of how these schemes impact TCP/IP stack design along with the associated constraints and limitations that arise. We will conclude with a review of major design and research in progress, and the technology trends associated with Mobility Management based on the number of identified generic fundamental principles for mobility management.

: Basic knowledge of computer networks is assumed.
