Internet Bridge: Germany - China

Introduction

This project is a cooperative E-learning/Tele-teaching project between the "Hasso-Plattner-Institut for Digital Engineering gGmbH" (HPI) of University of Potsdam and College of Computer Science and Technology of the Beijing University of Technology. The teaching cooperation between Potsdam and Beijing was led by Prof. Dr. Christoph Meinel and formally launched on 26th September 2005 (previously in 2002-2005 at University of Trier).The tele-lecture of this project is about "Internet Security: Weakeness and Targets" given by Prof. Dr. Christoph Meinel at HPI, Potsdam. This lecture has proved to be a great success start of this project. Supported by  a sophisticated Tele-teaching/e-learning technique, hundreds of Chinese IT students in Beijing have followed the lecture with German students over the Internet.

About the Lecture

"Internet Security - Weaknesses and Targets" is based on "Internet- & WWW-Technologies" and gives a detailed introduction on problems concerning Internet and Intranet security. After starting with some remarks on risk analysis and computer crimes, security weaknesses and targets are discussed in detail. Beside others the following topics are discussed in detail: human factor and technical failures, attacks on accounts and passwords, attacks on Internet protocol, misuse of design and programming errors, weaknesses in common operating systems, targets in the WWW, and viruses. The lecture course concludes with a discussion about the possibilities to detect attacks and intrusions and also describes ethical issuses.

Background

Internet-Bridge Potsdam-Beijing is the extension of the former cooperation project, Internet Bridge Trier-Beijing, between University of Trier and Beijing University of Technology from October 2002. The Internet-Bridge Potsdam-Beijing will be a regular and long term collaborative activity in the computer science education fields  between Germany and China. Also, in the framework of the Internet-Bridge Potsdam-Beijing, two groups of Chinese students have been studied at HPI for a doctoral degree since October 2001.

On 25.10.2012, we celebrated at HPI the ten years' anniversary of our project: More Information

On 19.09.2007, we celebrated at HPI the five years' anniversary of our project: More information

The technique used for recording the lectures and transmitting them over the Internet is the tele-TASK technology  which was developed at HPI. The lecture courses will end with an oral examination at HPI for German students at HPI and for Chinese students in Beijing.
