Welcome to my class CSCI-734: FOUNDATIONS OF SECURITY MEASUREMENT AND EVALUATION
|RIT Department of Computer Science|
Instructor: Dr. Leon Reznik Contact Information Introductory letter
The course will introduce students into the algorithmical foundations and modern methods used for security evaluation. It will combine a theoretical revision of the methods and models currently applied for computer security evaluation and an investigation of computer security through study of user’s practice. The students will be required to complete a few home assignments, to deliver a class presentation, to implement a team project, to lead the team’s work and to undertake research on the topic assigned. (CSCI-651 Data Communications and Networking I or Permission of the Instructor)
Please, see Welcome to my class letter and mycourses for further information
I want you to use an excellent brochure, practically a book, which was prepared by Cyber Security and Information Assurance Center (formerly IATAC) in 2009. The book “Measuring Cyber Security and Information Assurance: State of the Art Report” IATAC, May 2009 is available on line and on mycourses.
This class will extensively use mycourses resources. Much more information, references and resources could be found on the course mycourses page. All curriculum activities, such as assignment submissions, online discussions and even tests will be done through mycourses. Please, login into the course mycourses page as soon as you are granted the access.
I recommend you to use one computer security book, which you might already have. I recommend either M. Bishop Computer Security, Art and Science, Addison-Wesley or J.M. Kizza Computer Network Security, Springer
