Advanced topics in computer and network security, including: anonymity, privacy, memory safety, malware, denial of service attacks, trusted hardware, security design principles, and empirically measuring security "in the wild". This will be a largely paper-driven course (there is no textbook), preparing students for research in (or around) the broad area of security. Students will gain first-hand experience launching attacks in controlled environments. The bulk of the grade will be based on a final, semester-long group project.
