Construction of Secure Systems
The Cybersecurity Specialization covers the fundamental concepts underlying the construction of secure systems, from the hardware to the software to the human-computer interface, with the use of cryptography to secure interactions. These concepts are illustrated with examples drawn from modern practice, and augmented with hands-on exercises involving relevant tools and techniques. Successful participants will develop a way of thinking that is security-oriented, better understanding how to think about adversaries and how to build systems that defend against them.
- Intermediate Specialization.
- Some related experience required.
第 1 门课程
实用安全即将开课的班次：3月 6 — 5月 1。
- 7 weeks of study, 5-8 hours/week
课程概述This course focuses on how to design and build secure systems with a human-centric focus. We will look at basic principles of human-computer interaction, and apply these insights to the design of secure systems with the goal of developing security measures that respect human performance and their goals within a system.
第 2 门课程
Software Security即将开课的班次：3月 6 — 4月 24。
- 6 weeks of study, 3-5 hours/week
- English, Korean
课程概述This course we will explore the foundations of software security. We will consider important software vulnerabilities and attacks that exploit them -- such as buffer overflows, SQL injection, and session hijacking -- and we will consider defenses that prevent or mitigate these attacks, including advanced testing and program analysis techniques. Importantly, we take a "build security in" mentality, considering techniques at each phase of the development cycle that can be used to strengthen the security of software systems.
第 3 门课程
Cryptography当前班次：2月 20 — 4月 17。
- 7 weeks of study, 4-7 hours/week
课程概述This course will introduce you to the foundations of modern cryptography, with an eye toward practical applications.
第 4 门课程
硬件安全即将开课的班次：2月 27 — 4月 24。
课程概述In this course, we will study security and trust from the hardware perspective. Upon completing the course, students will understand the vulnerabilities in current digital system design flow and the physical attacks to these systems. They will learn that security starts from hardware design and be familiar with the tools and skills to build secure and trusted hardware.
第 5 门课程
Cybersecurity Capstone Project于 April 2017 开始
毕业项目介绍This course presents an intensive experience during which students build a software system they intend to be secure, and then attempt to show that other students' projects are insecure, by finding flaws in them.
