Fundamentals of computer security. We will focus on software security, applied cryptography, systems security, privacy, and usable security. A recurring theme will be security definitions, what kinds of security vulnerabilities may arise, and how to identify, fix, and prevent vulnerabilities.
Lecture and project-based
- CS (15-330) and ECE (18-330) undergraduate students. Required for the undergraduate security & privacy concentration.
- ECE, INI graduate students (18-730).
Some technical background.
Students will learn the basic concepts in computer security including software vulnerability analysis and defense, networking and wireless security, and applied cryptography. Students will also learn the fundamental methodology for how to design and analyze security critical systems.
