CIS 890, Fall 2003
Language Based Security
In this course, we shall address security issues from a
language-based perspective (as opposed to cryptographic, etc.)
A strong case for this approach is made
Monday and Wednesday, 1:30pm-2:45pm in N236.
A background in programming languages, for example
CIS 301 and 505, is essential for the course.
(Also CIS 705 is strongly recommended.)
A background in systems, for example CIS 520/720,
would also be helpful.
