How can we secure computer systems -- including those found in phones, cars, and other devices -- in an increasingly exposed and inter-connected computing environment?

This course explores a series of core security principles and concepts from the perspective of both the attacker and the defender, as students are exposed to tools and techniques used in modern attacks and defenses. Students develop a variety of research skills, as they learn to read research papers critically, to communicate technical ideas clearly, and to conduct experiments thoughtfully. In the Fall semester, the goal of the course is to not only continue to read research papers but also to make specific, tangible progress in implementing research projects.
