Warren T. Jones, Ph.D., PE
It is common knowledge that security is one of the most important issues in the computer field today. What is not apparent to many is that the security challenges today are frequently software problems. The weak points are the applications at the ends of the communications link and therefore represent the points of greatest vulnerability to attack. The purpose of this course is to present recommended approaches to software security including threat modeling, programming language security in C/C++, Java and Perl and activities for each stage of the software development life cycle. Smart card security and security certification for IT products are also discussed.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
