(3cr.) P: INFO I130. This course will enable students to reevaluate
and conceptualize material learned in discrete courses to consider
the topics from their perspective of security. For example, computer
system basics such as hardware (CPUs, memory) and software are
reconsidered from the perspective of how their interactions create
vulnerabilities. Vulnerabilities that combine standard hardware and
software configurations will be examined because they illuminate both
security and computer networks. Operating systems and file systems
are examined from the perspective of access control, permissions, and
availability of system services.
