Computer Security Education: Training, Scholarship, and Research



Bibliographic Information


Traditionally, computer security education falls into two distinct classes. The first is training, marked by an emphasis on particular systems, situations, or environments rather than broad principles. The second is scholarly (or scholarship), marked by an emphasis on underlying principles, concepts, and their application. The paper discusses a training course on Unix security, a scholarly course on computer security and the role of research in training education and scholarly education.
