CSC607 Security in Computing

Lead Faculty: Dr. Pradip Peter Dey

Course Description

This course examines the use of security vulnerabilities and threats in computer programs, operating systems, networks, and databases. The use of cryptography and other countermeasures to provide confidentiality, integrity, and availability is then evaluated in depth, from the perspectives of both technical effectiveness and ethics of users and developers.

Learning Outcomes

  • Evaluate and contrast computing security issues.
  • Assess computing security vulnerabilities and threats, and effective countermeasures to address them
  • Assess alternative countermeasures and controls, including ethics, and combine the best to provide state-of-the-art security in programs, operating systems, databases, and networks.
