This class covers the fundamentals of computer security by looking at
how things can go wrong, and how people can abuse the system. This is
a matter of creative cheating; to find loopholes and exploit them.
After students learn how to attack the system, it is possible to
propose ways to make the system secure. Students will gain a basic
overview of existing security problems and be exposed to methods that
can be used to secure against such problems. The course should be
taken by any one designing, selecting, or using applications in which
security or privacy plays a role.
