We will use these to make up some classes. Material presented here will be on exams.
|Course Outline||Introduce principles, mechanisms, and implementations of computer security; learn how attacks work, how to defend against them, and how to design systems to withstand them|
Some goals we hope you achieve:
|Prerequisites||The prerequisite for this course is ECS 150, Operating Systems. Students who have not taken this course are at a serious disadvantage in this class. Students who have not taken the prerequisite will be dropped to make room for those who have had the prerequisites.|
We shall use parts of the text Computer Security: Art and Science.
Readings from this text will be distributed in class. A recommended
supplementary text is:
|Computers||All registered students have been given an account on the computer science instructional machines in the basement. Change your password as soon as you can; if it is not changed within a week, your account will be disabled and you will have to see a system programmer to have it reset.|
|Course Handouts||Course handouts, programs, and samples will be available in the directory ~cs153 on any of the CSIF workstations, and from myucdavis. To use the latter, go to http://my.ucdavis.edu and log in using your campus-wide login and password. Then go to ECS 153 in your schedule.|
|Class Newsgroup||Information about this class, homework assignments, and so forth, will be posted to the newsgroup ucd.class.ecs153. Read this newsgroup daily! You are responsible for everything posted to this newsgroup. We'll use it to put out important information. Please do not post to this newsgroup. If you want to post things about the class, please use the discussion newsgroup ucd.class.ecs153.d. Discussing something in that newsgroup is perfectly fair.|
|Homework||Homework is due at noon on the date stated on the homework. See the handout All About Homework for more information.|
|Extra Credit||Extra credit in this course will be tallied separately from regular scores. If you end up on a borderline between two grades at the end of the course, extra credit will count in your favor. However, failure to do extra credit will never be counted against you, because grades are assigned on the basis of regular scores. You should do extra credit if you find it interesting and think that it might teach you something. Remember, though, it is not wise to skimp on the regular assignment in order to do extra credit!|
Midterm -- Thursday, November 9, 2000 in class|
Final examination -- Tuesday, December 12, 2000
These are open book/open notes exams. No early or late exam will be given; if you miss an exam for medical reasons (you must document this; no other excuses are acceptable), you may be allowed or required to take a make-up exam, or the other parts of the course will be counted proportionally more (the choice is the instructor's). In particular, forgetting the time or place of an exam is not an excuse for missing it!
