Integrating Security into Computer Science Curriculum

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This work uses a concrete example to show how security-related content can be added to various courses in a Computer Science curriculum. The course contents are mapped to the most prevalent software security flaws that are identified in the National Vulnerability Database of the National Institute of Standards and Technology. This work demonstrates that security-related content can be added to the curriculum in a comprehensive manner. These course content should not require significant re-tooling of existing faculty to gain specialized knowledge in software security.
