CS513: System Security - Topic Outline

The outline below gives the topics to be covered in class this semester. We are hoping to cover alot of material. And there is some risk that we won't get through it all.

The outline also contains links to notes for past CS513 lectures. These scribed lecture notes are being offered solely on an "as is" basis --- what is actually covered in lecture this semester and the manner in which that material is presented may differ from these scribed lecture notes.

Suggested readings in our course textbooks are given in the outline within square brackets.
