Program Description

Course in Cybersecurity (Intermediate)

Coursera

The Cybersecurity Specialization covers the fundamental concepts underlying the construction of secure systems, from the hardware to the software to the human-computer interface, with the use of cryptography to secure interactions. These concepts are illustrated with examples drawn from modern practice, and augmented with hands-on exercises involving relevant tools and techniques. Successful participants will develop a way of thinking that is security-oriented, better understanding how to think about adversaries and how to build systems that defend against them.

Courses

Usable Security
This course focuses on how to design and build secure systems with a human-centric focus. Coursera will look at basic principles of human-computer interaction, and apply these insights to the design of secure systems with the goal of developing security measures that respect human performance and their goals within a system.

Software Security
This course will explore the foundations of software security. Coursera will consider important software vulnerabilities and attacks that exploit them -- such as buffer overflows, SQL injection, and session hijacking -- and Coursera will consider defenses that prevent or mitigate these attacks, including advanced testing and program analysis techniques. Importantly, Coursera takes a "build security in" mentality, considering techniques at each phase of the development cycle that can be used to strengthen the security of software systems.

Cryptography
This course will introduce you to the foundations of modern cryptography, with an eye toward practical applications.

Hardware Security
In this course, we will study security and trust from the hardware perspective. Upon completing the course, students will understand the vulnerabilities in current digital system design flow and the physical attacks to these systems. They will learn that security starts from hardware design and be familiar with the tools and skills to build secure and trusted hardware.

Cybersecurity Capstone Project
This course presents an intensive experience during which students build a software system they intend to be secure, and then attempt to show that other students' projects are insecure, by finding flaws in them.
