CSE 599 G/H (Autumn 2007)

Computer Security and Privacy

Enrollment Options

You may enroll in either CSE 599 G (for a letter grade) or CSE 599 H (for credit/no credit). CSE 599 G and CSE 599 H have slightly different requirements, as described below. I suggest consulting the Ph.D. Requirements and Deadlines webpage before deciding whether to enroll for a letter grade or credit/no credit. CSE 599 G and H are both three-credit courses.

Course Overview

This is graduate course in computer security and privacy. We will read, evaluate, and discuss papers from the computer security literature. The course requirements include reading the assigned papers, writing short evaluations of these papers, and participating in class discussions. There will also be a final project (if you enroll for a letter grade), and one take-home midterm exam.

The following describes the course requirements in more detail:
