About the Course

Welcome to Web Connectivity and Security in Cyber-Physical Systems! In this course, we will explore several technologies that bring modern devices together, facilitating a network of connected things and making devices internet-enabled. We will discuss rules, protocols, and standards for these devices to communicate with each other in the network. We will also go through security and privacy issues and challenges in cyber-physical systems (CPS). We will explore measures and techniques for securing systems from different perspectives. Possible attack models are introduced and solutions to tackle such attacks are discussed. Moreover, some basic concepts related to privacy in cyber-physical systems are presented. The course comprises altogether five modules and is split up into two main sections. The first section contains three modules and centers on the problem of web connectivity in cyber-physical systems. The second section consists of two modules focusing on security measures in such systems. Each module ends with a graded quiz, and there is a final peer-reviewed exam at the end of the course covering the two main sections of the course. After completing this course, you will have the basic knowledge and capacity for designing the network architecture of your cyber-physical system. This includes putting together different components, selecting suitable communication protocols, and utilizing these protocols in your system. You will also be able to define security requirements for your system and choose and implement a proper security and privacy technique to protect it....

Good overview of many different concepts and technologies used in connectivity and communication of devices in IoT. It is purely theoretical, just videos no exercises, coding or anything of the sort. To improve I suggest making a PDF with all the content of the course so one can review it months from now when necessary.

This course can be more informative if it teaches about some basic codes required for the encryptions.

Purely a theoretical course, would be better if one could get hands-on for implementing the web connectivity and communication protocols. Nevertheless, Cryptography introduction was good and along with few problems they were nice. Overall, lecture structuring was nice but more assignments along with simulation could've done the trick.

Should make this course more practical and less theoretical. There should be a few assignments along with the quiz. All in all a good overview but will require some practicals/labs.
