Demystifying Cyber Security technologies

On Wednesday, November 29, 2023, a demytifing seminar on cyber security technologies will be held from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm.

The development of information technologies and the Internet means an ever-increasing amount of data and digital services, which brings the challenges of cyber security. Ensuring cyber security includes both technical and non-technical aspects. As part of the seminar, we will focus on the concepts and technologies of cyber security, which are often misunderstood or not known at all.

Various aspects of cyber security will be presented as part of the seminar. The basics of cryptography will be presented, with which we want to dispel the mystery surrounding the technologies that are the basis of many security mechanisms. The use of cryptography is also related to digital certificates and public key infrastructure. We will explain concepts such as electronic signature, digital certificate, SIGEN-CA, eOsebna, etc. and possibilities of use in practice. An important aspect of the protection of information systems is also the protection of the communication connection, for which we can use technologies such as HTTPS and VPN, where we will address misconceptions related to the mentioned concepts. By introducing new possibilities for using biometrics, FIDO 2 or PassKey we will address the user authentication aspect. We will also look into the future of cyber security in the age of quantum computers and conclude the seminar with a comprehensive approach to information security, an information security management system.

The seminar will be held by prof. dr. Marko Hölbl and dr. Marko Kompara from the Data Technology Laboratory at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Computer Science and Informatics, University of Maribor.
