Course Description

In the past, security measures were merely supplemental to software design, but with the increasing threat of hackers who manipulate applications and steal or modify important data, countermeasures are vital to protect applications from vulnerability.

Learning Objectives

In this course, students have an overview of best practices in developing secure software applications and the tools for investigating anomalies and vulnerabilities in application software. Students engage in a variety of course assignments focusing on related topics, including buffer overflow, structured query language (SQL) injections, selected programming and scripting languages, and the security of web applications on both the client and server side.
