3cr. 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.
