Securing embedded systems is a challenging endeavor, and recent exploits have shown that vulnerabilities (e.g., in medical devices and public infrastructure) risk human lives and corporate reputations. Designing secure electronics and firmware requires an understanding of several areas including software/hardware architecture, cryptography, and systems engineering. This course is a practical hands-on session covering key topics that will prepare you to effectively design secure embedded systems.
