This course is an introduction to the broad field of information security. We will cover both network security (e.g., maintaining confidentiality of email, secure web transactions) and computer security (e.g., security policies, access control), with emphasis on the former. Note that there is not always a clear dividing line between the two areas.



The weightages are approximate and may change by upto 10%.
