CS 6431

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2014-2015.

Through their influence in systems ranging from automobiles to implantable medical devices to social networks, computer security and privacy touch our lives in ever more diverse and palpable ways. In this course, students explore select topics, both social ones such as the ethics of hacking, and technical ones, such as the use of cryptography. Students seek to understand these concepts in the wild through the study of current events, products and services, and startup ideas. The focus of the course is less on specific skills than on a technical and social understanding of how and why security and privacy matter, how to think adversarially, and how (and how not) to design systems and products.
