Language-Based Security

Master's level | 7.5 credits | Course code: DIT101

The course is not given as a stand-alone course this academic year, but can be included in the program/course package. For information contact the department.

About the Course

The course covers the principles of programming language-based techniques for computer security. The goal is 1) understanding such applicaiton-level attacks as race conditions, buffer overruns, covert channels, and code injection and 2) mastering the principles behind such language-based protection techniques as static analysis, program transformation, and reference monitoring. The dual perspective of attack vs. protection is threaded through the lectures, laboratory assignments, and projects.
