This is a freshman seminar so we won't do anything too deep, but this should be easy enough to follow given what we have covered so far in class:
You have two choices of video's to watch.
You could Watch this video from a defcon talk a couple of years ago. Defcon is a security conference for academics and professionals in the digital security field. There is some R-rated language in the video, so be advised to watch in the right environment. It is from a public conference, but there is more than a bit of rude humor in describing some digital forensics fails.
If you would rather avoid the rude humor or if the previous video makes you uncomfortable in any way, You can watch this video entitled "Am I being spied on?" also from a DefCon conference talk. This video is much more sedate/straightforward and also quite relevant to the course.
For either video, choose the best story/spy technique discussed.
The paper should be 1-2 pages of double spaced text. Of course good grammar and good writing will be part of the grade.
