This course will give an introduction to the discipline of Computer Security. It is intended for both computer science and information science students, at bachelor level. The basic ideas, notions, techniques etc. will be explained.


The aim of this course is to make the student aware of the pervasive character of security issues, recognise the relevant aspects in concrete situations (confidentiality, integrity, availability), and know the basic techniques to protect valuable assets in computing and communication. More specifically: 1. You are able to recognise -- in society in general and within a job environment in particular -- situations in which information security plays a role. 2. You are able to recognise relevant security goals in such situations (confidentiality, integrity, availability, authenticity, non-repudiation, accountability). 3. You can (on a global level) describe basic techniques to achieve these security goals, evaluate existing solutions, an propose new solutions in practical situations. 4. You recognise the social and organisational implications of security technologies (especially privacy), and you can take these aspects into account in your analysis of practical situations.

Chapter 8 ``Network Security'' from: A.S. Tanenbaum, Computer Networks, fourth ed. Prentice Hall, 2003. The same book will be used for the course A3, so that students who also follow A3 are well-advised to buy the book. It is certainly a valuable book to have, even if only one chapter is used for Security. But a copy of chapter 8 is enough to follow the course. Getting such copies is not organised by the institute.
