HACS100
Foundations in Cybersecurity I
Credits: 2
Grad Meth: Reg
Restriction: Must be a student in the ACES (Advanced Cybersecurity Experience for Students) Living-Learning Program.
Interdisciplinary foundational course of the ACES program. Through lectures, lab activities, and discussions, students will learn and practice various aspects of cybersecurity. Weekly technical lectures will introduce students to the operating system UNIX. Students will partner with the Division of Information Technology in a project to engage the University of Maryland community in a cyber- hygiene and cyber-ethics campaign based on the concepts learned in class.
Restriction: Must be a student in the ACES (Advanced Cybersecurity Exper ience for Students) Living-Learning Program.
HACS200
Applied Cybersecurity Foundations II
Credits: 2
Grad Meth: Reg
GenEd: DSSP
Prerequisite: Minimum grade of C- in HACS101.
Restriction: Must be a student in the ACES (Advanced Cybersecurity Experience for Students) Living-Learning Program.
Students will apply the skills learned in HACS 100 and 101 to practice cybersecurity research through team led projects employing honeypots, carrying that project through all stages - proposal, implementation, and analysis. Weekly lectures will supplement project work by addressing trends observed in honeypot attacks and protections needed, along with data collection and analysis tools, and other foundational cybersecurity concepts.
Must be a student in the ACES (Advanced Cybersecurity Experience for Students) Living-Learning Program.
HACS201
Introduction to UNIX
Credits: 1
Grad Meth: Reg
Restriction: Must be a first-year student in the ACES (Advanced Cybersecurity Experience for Students) Minor Program.
Credit only granted for: HACS201 or CMSC216.
Additional information: Required course for students who have not completed the ACES Living-Learning Program or taken CMSC216.
Introduction to the operating system UNIX through lectures and hands-on assignments.
HACS202
Group Project in Cybersecurity
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg
Restriction: Must be a first-year student in the ACES (Advanced Cybersecurity Experience for Students) Minor Program; and cannot have been an ACES Living-Learning Program student (i.e., have taken HACS100 and HACS102).
The group project in this course will combine technical, analytical, and communication skills, further engaging students in the practice of cybersecurity. Students will learn about design concepts and data analysis as they engage in a team project designing, deploying, and collecting and analyzing data from a honeypot. The hands-on nature of the course will give students experiential insight about how and why attackers attack and how to engage in protective measures to prevent attacks.
