The first CASA Summer School on Backdoors and Trojans (June 22 - 25/26th, 2020, Bochum) is all about Trojans and its different aspects. A distinguishing feature of the event is the holistic approach under which the topic will be discussed. Premium IT security researchers will give lectures on four days:
Dan Bernstein and Tanja Lange will talk about crypto-based Trojans, with a focus on the threat posed by standardization. Christof Paar and his team will how hardware reverse engineering in the context of low-level hardware Trojans. Angela Sasse will discuss the role that human factors play in introducing and avoiding Trojans. Lucas Davi will highlight how software-based crypto Trojans can be realized in real-world settings.
We invite young scholars from all disciplines to participate at the CASA Summer School. We appreciate participants working in technical areas as well as from the humanities.
