See this page.
Introduction to Cybersecurity (CS 3710; previously also offered as a CS 3501 special topics course)
I may waive this prerequisite on a case-by-case basis if you have reason to believe you learned the relevant material elsewhere.
Some knowledge of C and C++ and x86-64 assembly.
Course Staff and Resources
Linked off Collab.
Via Discord, see online logistics page.
Anonymous feedback is available through Collab. The instructor appreciates your feedback, especially when that feedback could be useful for improving the course.
This feedback is really anonymous. There is no way the course staff can find out who posted it, so the course staff cannot do much with complaints like “you misgraded my homework”.
Charles Reiss Email: email@example.com. Putting “4630” in the subject line is strongly recommended.
There is no required textbook. The books “The Art of Computer Virus Research and Defense” by Peter Szor will be a source for some of the material in this course.
