ECE 469/569 - Mobile & Embedded System Security / Fall 2023


Course Description

Introduction to vulnerabilities and threat vectors associated with mobile and embedded devices, such as smartphones, wearable devices, and IoT devices, and the potential security and privacy issues associated with machine learning models deployed on mobile and IoT devices. Topics include security features and limitations of intelligent audio systems (e.g., voice assistants), user authentication/verification, trustworthy and robust machine learning models (e.g., adversarial attacks, backdoor attacks, and privacy-preserving federated learning), side-channel attacks on mobile/wearable devices, acoustic sensing for security, and security and privacy breaches via inertial sensors on smart home devices. The coursework focuses on enhancing students' understanding and awareness of security and privacy concerns in mobile and embedded systems, as well as machine learning models operating within them, through individual homework&programming assignments and an intensive final project involving hands-on research.
