The readings/seminar part of the course is 3 credits (out of 8 total).
We will read and discuss about half of a book each week.
Each week, bring a very short report on your reading, with one or two sentences on each of these three items:
The lecture was about networks and network security. I was surprised to learn that an ordinary personal computer on a cable modem might be probed by hackers several times a day. It made me wonder why the networks and system software are so vulnerable -- why didn't the manufacturers make it more secure?
Each week, there will be a short quiz on the reading, consisting of three short-answer questions, perhaps a few more. The questions will be easy to answer if you have done the reading.
Your evaluation in the readings and seminar will be largely based on your report and your quiz.
Your evaluation in the lecture will be based on attendance only.
