Fall 2010

This course examines both the theory and practice of computer and network security. Topics include cryptography, spyware, viruses, sniffers, rootkits, back doors, network attacks (such as drive-by downloads), Trojan horses, intrusion detection, and firewalls. Examples of attacks and how to protect against them will be drawn from both the Windows and Unix/Linux worlds. Hands-on exercises are included.

Note on Flu

Because of the possibility of H1N1 and other types of flu affecting us on campus, please practice good hand washing, etc. If you get the flu, please notify me by phone or e-mail and stay home for 24 hours after the fever has gone. Check with me about what you miss. You will not be penalized for missing class in this situtation. It is better to stay away from class and not spread the flu when you are ill.
