EIT Digital Master in Cyber Security

EURECOM is part of the high profile EIT Digital Master in Cyber Security (CES)

 

Cyber Security focuses on the study of the design, development and evaluation of secure computer systems, which are also capable of ensuring privacy for future ICT systems.

Students study one year at an ‘entry’ university and one year at an ‘exit’ university in two of EIT Digital’s hot spots around Europe. Upon completion, graduates receive degrees from the two universities and a certificate awarded by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology.

The 1st year is similar at all entry points with basic courses to lay the foundation for the chosen technical programme focus. Some elective courses may also be chosen. At the same time, students are introduced to business and management. During the second semester, a design project is combined with business development exercises. These teach how to turn technology into business and how to present a convincing business plan.

In between the first year and the second year, a summer school addresses business opportunities within a socially relevant theme. The second year offers a specialisation and a graduation project. The gradation project includes an internship at a company or a research institute and results in a Master thesis with a strong innovation and entrepreneurship dimension.

EURECOM proposes a 2nd year specialization in "Mobile and Cloud Security" that  focuses on mobile systems and the security and privacy issues thereof, with a strong focus on android based smartphones and wireless protocols.

Description

As our lives rely increasingly more on processes taking place in the cyber world, cybersecurity is paramount to protect us, our privacy and the integrity and confidentiality of our digital belongings.  Two new paradigms are shaping the infrastructures of the future: mobility and cloud computing. It is therefore of the uttermost importance to have experts capable of addressing the security of these infrastructures, mobile devices and communications between them.  This is what this course is about.

  Key words: cloud computing, mobile systems, Android, malware analysis, secure communications, vulnerability assessment, mitigation techniques, operating system security 

  • Cover in a hands on approach topics such as the mobile ecosystem, the design and architecture of mobile operating systems, rooting and jailbreaking, application analysis, malware reverse engineering, malware detection, vulnerability assessment, automatic static  and dynamic analysis and exploitation and mitigation techniques

 Objectives: 

  • Design analysis tools to identify and evaluate weaknesses in mobile devices and applications
  • Develop practical protection mechanisms to ensure the safety of mobile devices and applications and Cloud systems
  • Develop the ability to effectively communicate results and solutions to stakeholders
  • Cover in a hands on approach topics such as the mobile ecosystem, the design and the architecture of mobile operating systems, rooting and jailbreaking, application analysis, malware reverse engineering, malware detection, vulnerability assessment, automatic static and dynamic analysis, and exploitation and mitigation techniques
  • Acquire competences both in technical courses but also in others covering Innovation, Project Management, Entrepreneurship
