The paper you select must be directly relevant to one of the above topics or another topic and be related to IT Security. The paper must be approved by your lecturer and be related to what we are studying this semester in IT Security. The paper can be from any academic conference or other relevant Journal. All students must select a different paper. Thus, the paper must be approved by your lecturer before proceeding. In case two students are wanting to present on the same paper, the first who emails the lecturer with their choice will be allocated that paper. Please note that popular magazine or web-site articles are not academic papers.
