Bibliographic Information


As the fall term begins, computer security students expect to buy heavy textbooks filled with equations, information theory, and programs that sort, encipher, and route network packets. Yet, nontechnical classes also have much to offer today’s security students. In addition to satisfying general education requirements, such classes provide core background material that explains aspects of computer security that most technical courses overlook.
