Assignment Overview
Assignment 1 is a formative assessment.
Assignment 1 focuses on developing an annotated bibliography for the scenario you have selected for subsequent analysis. You need to use the template provided to develop this annotated bibliography. Three research sources (1 journal papers and 1 conference paper) need to be used for this assessment. Student should ensure that the research sources they have selected are recent, preferably published within the years (2017-2021). Students must submit the assignment by Week 3 due date mentioned in this document.
Assignment Topics
Part A: You need to select one of the topics listed below based on your student ID ending number
Students with ID ending with Topic Number
0 or 5 1
1 or 6 2
2 or 7 3
3 or 8 4
4 or 9 5
1) Cloud computing is a major shift from the traditional way businesses think about IT resources. It offers potential benefits such as cost saving and improved business outcomes. However, cloud computing also raises a variety of information security risks. Discuss the risks associated and cloud computing security considerations.
2) Crypto jacking is the unauthorized use of someone else’s computer to mine cryptocurrency. Discuss how to detect and prevent crypto jacking attacks on consumer devices.
3) Internet of Things (IoT) is an emerging area that will help connect common objects turning them into connected devices and it promises to change the way we interact with things. The IoT paradigm is changing the way people interact with things around them. The IoT Paradigm is also making its way into the industry to support innovative services. Discuss the concepts of IoT and Industrial IoT and the challenges associated with the proliferation of IoT in industry.
4) Quantum Computing and Quantum Cryptography: Quantum computing relies on the use of quantum physics using atomic scale units called qubits which makes quantum computers faster and more efficient. Discuss the use of quantum computing for increasing cyber security and the use of quantum communication for secure telecommunications.
5) Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are interconnected sensor nodes that communicate wirelessly to collect data about the surrounding environment. WSN is a major technology enabling the Internet of Things (IoT). Discuss WSNs and security issues in WSNs.
