Principles of Security Engineering

This course aims at teaching students the fundamental principles of engineering secure systems. More specifically the goals are:
– to give a broad understanding of how secure systems are designed and evaluated.
– to explain key security concepts and mechanisms as well as pitfalls.
– to describe how systems are attacked and defended: typical threats, vulnerabilities and counter-measures.
– to take a “system-based” approach, i.e. to take account of the whole system rather than just the technical, e.g. crypto algorithms and protocols

Our IRiSC member contribute to the course with socio-technical aspects.
