Study materials

The final section on Web authentication (from slide 141 onwards) will not be covered in the exam this year. The lectures covered the notes only up to slide 149.

Read access to Information for supervisors page will become available to this year's Part IB students on Friday 1 June, assuming that most supervisions have finished by then. It includes solution notes to some of the exercises and past exam questions.

For detailed instructions and how to access these exercises and submit your solutions, see the IB Security Practical Ticks Moodle page.
