CMSC818O: Advanced Topics in Information Processing; Computer and Network Security is a University of Maryland graduate level qualifying course that will cover advanced topics in computer and network security, including (but not limited to): anonymity, privacy, memory safety, malware, denial of service attacks, trusted hardware, security design principles, and empirically measuring security “in the wild”. This will be a largely paper-driven course (there is no textbook), preparing students for research in (or around) the broad area of security. Students will gain first-hand experience launching attacks in controlled environments.
