Group: each group has 2 students. Send your group information to TA according to the following format:

Format: the order you wish to present + group members + paper name, e.g.,
“1 + Alice, Bob + Beauty and the Burst: Remote Identification of Encrypted Video Streams”

Student presentation:
1. 2 students as a group
2. chooses paper from the list I provide or from other relevant conferences/ journals
3. Presentations last for 15 mins + Q&A + Discussion
4. Make slides yourself

Paper source:
1. Big 4: USENIXS Security/ NDSS/ ACM CCS/ IEEE Oakland (S&P)
