Description: Many modern web services, such as Facebook or YouTube, rely on a set of computers that coordinate across a network. A networked system raises unique challenges, not the least of which is security. As applications can send messages to or receive messages from other remote applications, it is important to ensure that such network-facing programs are secure, even if parts of the system may not be trustworthy. This course will teach the concepts, architecture, and implementation of network applications that have high security assurance in the presence of threats. We will cover typical attacks, such as denial-of-service, remote exploits, as well as security practices that developers can adopt to address these challenges.
