Introducing Secure Coding in CS0 and CS1 (Abstract Only)
M. Bishop, B. Taylor, E. Hawthorne, D. Burley, and S. Kaza, “Introducing Secure Coding in CS0 and CS1 (Abstract Only),” Proceedings of the 44th ACM Technical Symposium on Computer Science Education p. 761 (Mar. 2013).
The CS 2013 curriculum draft includes Information Assurance and Security as a pervasive knowledge area. However, introducing security in CS0 and CS1 is challenging because of lack of appropriate teaching resources and training. This workshop will provide a well-tested strategy for introducing secure coding concepts in CS0 and CS1. We will introduce attendees to secure coding through hands-on exercises, and provide self-contained, lab-based modules designed to be injected into CS0/CS1 with minimal impact on the course (www.towson.edu/securityinjections). Participants will be encouraged to bring in their own syllabus and labs to modify to include secure coding concepts. The first 15 participants will be reimbursed for the workshop cost on attendance. Laptop recommended.
