Instructor: Dr. Cliff Zou (HEC-243), 407-823-5015, firstname.lastname@example.org
Course Time: TuTh 10:30am-11:45am, ENG2- 103
Video Streaming: We will use the new Mediasite system for video streaming, which is very similar to Tegrity in previous semesters. Recorded videos can be accessed via the “Modules” link in Webcourse. Both face-to-face session (0R01) and online session (0V61) students can access the lecture video. Each class video will be available in late afternoon after each face-to-face lecture. Webcourse will be used for assignment release and submission.
Prerequisite: Good programming skill (preferring C or C++); knowledge on computer architecture, algorithm, and networking; knowledge of basic usage of Unix machine.
Textbook: No require textbook.

following reference books.
This course will
introduction to several important aspects about malicious
codes and software
security, including Internet virus/worm/spam, typical software
(e.g., buffer overflow), software fuzz testing, secure
prevention techniques, etc. In addition, we will provide
research papers on software security and malware research for
students to read,
present and discuss in order to learn the frontier of software
research. Students will have a research-format term project to
work on a software
security related research topic selected by themselves. During
the semester, we
will have about three programming projects on topics such
buffer-overflow exploit, fuzz testing, network traffic
+/- grading system will be used as A, A-, B+, B, etc. The tentative weights are as follows:Task Items Face-to-face students Video streaming students
