Written examination

The written examination will cover the following topics:

  1. System security
  2. Identification and authentication, Biometric user authentication
  3. Network security
  4. Risk analysis
  5. Business continuity planning, Physical security

For each of these topics there will be one general question, weighting 2 points, and one in-depth question, weighting 6 points. You may answer at most 3 general questions and 3 in-depth questions. You may answer both the general and the in-depth question for at most one topic. If you answer more than 3 general or 3 in-depth questions, we will randomly discard excess answers. If you answer both questions for more than one topic, we will randomly discard answers for all but one of the affected topics.

The passing threshold is 3 points received from general questions and 9 points received from in-depth questions.

The two optional labs gives 2 bonus in-depth points each. It is thus possible to get a maximum of 4 extra in-depth points by passing both labs. Note that the bonus points do not apply to the general questions, so it is still necessary to receive at least 3 points from general questions to pass the exam.

Permissible aids for the exam
Dictionary - Book, NOT Electronic.

Project examination

The requirements for passing the project are: follow the intermediate milestones and deadlines, complete the work in the given time frame, meet the expected quality for the report and for the presentation. Note that there are no re-examinations for projects! The only possibility for students failing the project part is to redo this part next year, starting from the very beginning with the project selection. Also, note that for receiving the grades for the course both parts of the course (first - theoretical - and the second - project) have to be passed.
