The series will start with a definition of computer security and introduction of concepts like threat modeling and risk assessment, as well as protection, detection and reaction strategies. It then presents real-life examples of vulnerabilities and attacks, and describe the role of cryptography: where it can help, and where this needs to be complemented by other mechanisms. One of the focuses of the series is security of software applications. This part targets software developers, drawing their attention to the main pitfalls and providing guidelines for best practices.
