While Dr. Vaughn was traveling this week, I lectured the CSE 4243/6243 Information and Computing Security class on Wednesday, and today (or will, in about 30 minutes). These two lectures are a mile-high overview of terminology and examples surrounding vulnerabilities, exploits, malware, and denial of service attacks. Chapter 3 of Charles P. Pfleeger’s Security in Computing, 4th Edition was the assigned reading for this week, and much of the material in the slides for this lecture was adapted from this text or used it as a guide.
The slides area available here, for the students who would like to add them to their study materials for the upcoming test, and for anyone else who might be interested:
The slides may be of limited use without the accompanying lecture, as I often bump out of the slides to look at classic or recent examples of things on the Internet. I’m more than happy to talk about them to anyone who contacts me, though.
