This is a mandatory course of all Bachelor Cybersecurity students. Any other students may be unable to take the CP associated with the lecture, please check the LSF to see if your course of study is listed.In this course, students will learn foundational security principles, the basics of cryptography, receive an introduction to networks and network security, and explore privacy-preserving mechanisms. Additionally, students will acquire programming skills in Python.
By the end of the course, students should be able to define security goals and become familiar with the most common attack scenarios.
Beware: this lecture only starts in the third week of the semester (November 6) due the perfect alignment of the semester start, the school holidays, and the lecturer's desire to take a vacation with his school-going daughter.
