ITEC 4102 - Application Software Security♦


(5 cr.) In the past, security measures were merely supplemental to software design, but with the increasing threat of hackers who manipulate applications and steal or modify important data, countermeasures are vital to protect applications from vulnerability. In this course, students have an overview of best practices in developing secure software applications and the tools for investigating anomalies and vulnerabilities in application software. Students engage in a variety of course assignments focusing on related topics, including buffer overflow, structured query language (SQL) injections, selected programming and scripting languages, and the security of web applications on both the client and server side.
  (Prerequisite(s): ITEC 2080 and ITEC 3020.)
♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an Enrollment Advisor [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
