This is an introductory course for some preliminary techniques in computer
security and simple attacks for security protocols and schemes. Both the
theoretical (e.g. the mathematics behind an encryption system and the
attacks) and the practical (e.g. introduction of password cracking software
tools) aspects of these techniques will be covered.

This is an introductory course for some preliminary anti-forensic techniques
and simple attacks to security protocols and schemes. Both the theoretical
(e.g. the mathematics behind an encryption system and the attacks) and the
practical (e.g. introduction of password cracking software tools) aspects of
these techniques will be covered.
||Students are expected to have university
level mathematics background and some programming experience.
