Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

At least one course in basic computer science, and some knowledge on operating systems and computer communications.

Intended learning outcomes

After completing the course the student should be able to describe safety issues arising from the use of computers and modern network technologies, and the opportunities to protection available today. This means that after completing this course the student is expected to be able to:

  • Describe the principles and possibilities of how security can be built into computers and networks, both at the component and system level
  • Explain the concept that confidentiality, integrity and availability (CIA) of information and its use in data security
  • Describe the common security protocols in network communications
  • Describe the usual models of access control and user authentication
  • Describe the use of cryptography-based tools

Course content

Structure and terminology of the subject. Authentication of user identity. Theory and practice for access control. Formal security models. Cryptology and its use in security tools. Security problems, tools, protocols and solutions in networks and distributed systems. Security in specific systems such as databases. Security management.

Teaching and working methods

The course consists of lectures, seminars and laboratory work.

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
