CS 5435 - Security and Privacy Concepts in the Wild

Fall. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: CS 2800  or CS 4820  or permission of instructor. Enrollment limited to: Cornell Tech students. Offered at Cornell Tech in New York City.

A. Juels.

This course will impart a technical and social understanding of how and why security and privacy matter, how to think adversarially, how (and how not) to design systems and products. Less attention will be paid to specific skills such as hacking, writing secure code, and security administration. Topics will include user authentication, cryptography, malware, behavioral economics in security, human factors in security, privacy and anonymity, side channels, decoys and deception, and adversarial modeling. We will explore these concepts by studying real-world systems and attacks, including Bitcoin, Stuxnet, retailer breaches, implantable medical devices, and health apps, and considering issues to come in personal genomics, virtual worlds, and autonomous vehicles.
