Computer Security

As society becomes increasingly dependent on computer systems, from controlling critical infrastructure to providing public services over the web, the importance of protecting against threats from vandals, criminals, industrial espionage and cyber-terrorism grows dramatically. This study line addresses the secure development, deployment and operation of computer systems that may interact with other computer systems across open networks.
