Subject of course

  • Basics of system security (security principles, authentication and access control, control-flow hijacking) 
  • Basics of web security (browser security, client-side security, server-side security)
  • Basics of cryptography (symmetric cryptography, asymmetric cryptography)
  • Basics of network security (denial of service, TLS, network anonymity)
