PART I Researching:

In a group of three students, you are asked to select a topic in the field of Cybersecurity. Read thoroughly in the selected topic and summarize your understanding and findings in a research report. You should read and summarize at least 9 published papers in the topic you selected and those papers should be published within the recent five years (2019 2024).

The report should be written in your own words and grammatically corrected. Neither copying from the papers you read, nor using AI bots is allowed, and this may result in losing the report marks totally.

Here are some suggested titles for your research:

Security Systems in Industrial Organizations. DDoS attacks, trends and measures.
VPNs, threats and vulnerabilities.
Flooding attacks, trends and measures.

Cloud computing systems flooding attacks. IDS intelligent designs.
Honeypots threats and challenges.
Intrusion detection: issues and challenges. Security and privacy on blockchain?

IoT security risks and challenges.
The Internet, protocols, threats, privacy. Cryptography for Big data.
Firewalls, IPS, and IDS.
Security issues in DMZ Networks.
Security threats in Internet protocols.
Risk management in Economic networks. AI in Cybersecurity.
AI in Social Engineering.
Reverse Engineering, threads and trends. Security in airplane systems.
Privacy in E-Commerce.
