CS 493 - Secure Software Systems
Secure Software Systems Fall Prereqs.: C- or better in CS 253 and either CS 254 or CET 349. Study of the approaches, mechanisms, and tools used to make software systems more secure. We will motivate the study by discussing common software security threats. The majority of the course will be divided into four main modules: architectural approaches to building secure software (e.g., confinement, virtual machines, trusted computing); software analysis (e.g., static analysis and testing, model checking); language-based approaches to building secure software (e.g., type systems, proof-carrying code); and run-time enforcement of security policies (e.g., dynamic taint analysis). Cross-listed with CYS 493. No credit given to students with credit for CYS 493.
