Introduction To Computer Science Security
Introduction to Computer Science Security Tutorial
Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
Welcome to this crash course on security. My aim for this tutorial is to fill the gap between the academic courses (knowledge) part and real life scenario (practical) part. My motivation for doing this tutorial is based on personal issues I experienced during my studies.
This tutorial will be divided into two parts as mentioned above:
- Academic - knowledge based
- Real Life Scenario - practical based
In the academic part, we will explore the history of cryptography, modern cryptography and its application.
In real life scenarios, we will establish simple examples of security applications in real life, and/or use the current examples given by Cybrary.
Nowadays, security is a hot and interesting subject for good and bad reasons. It is one of the more important subjects in Computer Science studies. The importance of security grows rapidly due to the emergence of new technologies. Currently, technology is involved in almost every aspect of our lives.
In order to study and understand security, there are a few prerequisite courses, and I will divide them into three parts:
