Introduction to the development of secure software during all phases of the software development life cycle. An emphasis is placed upon the secure code implementation and the most common pitfalls and security bugs found in programming languages. Risk assessments, threat modeling and secure code analysis of existing systems are also considered one of the primary topics. Hands-on exercises will be required in laboratory sessions. Three hours of lecture Three hours of laboratory.
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: Develop secure software; Identify security issues in current programming languages; Develop defensible applications using secure coding; Perform risk assessment and secure code analysis of existing systems.
