I am going into my final year of university this September and I'm wanting to pick a topic that interests me deeply.

I'll admit that my knowledge of crypto is far from where it needs to be but was hoping there would be some knowledgeable people that may be able to spark some ideas.

My course title is Forensic computing and security so something with a security focus would be ideal, i'd also be interested in maybe tying this in with crime.

I write here in the hopes that maybe i can get a better idea of where I can go with this or for someone to push me towards something in crypto that I am overlooking.

Any ideas no matter how simple they may be are appreciated

Thanks

I've been meaning to read this pdf for some time. Let me know what you think of it if you get a chance to read it.

The PDF just seems to be explaining the process of how a course is ran for bitcoin forensics.
The course sounds useful but the PDF itself not very helpful

Forensic computing and security is such a vast field. Do you have any specific idea what topic in regards to bitcoin/altcoins/crypto interests you most? As I understand it, most crimes related to crypto (or rather cryptocurrency) is per definition a viable topic. E.g. there were several major hacks in the last years that could be analyzed.

Apologies - I downloaded it to look at myself, but I haven't had a chance to read it.

The famous site is the Sans Institute, and I've got a copy of their ebook somewhere. It used to be free, but they may be charging for it now.

Today's free eBook from PackT publishing is Python for secret agents. I've just downloaded it, but haven't had a chance to look at it yet.
