Introduction to Computer Security at NYU Paris

Especially during Part 1 of the course, we will frequently be using Serious Cryptography by Jean-Philippe Aumasson. You may purchase this book from your local NYU Bookstore: copies have been pre-ordered for students. We will also be using the textbook Security Engineering by Ross Anderson. A free online edition of this textbook is available.

Every lecture will be accompanied by outside readings that expand on what is discussed in class or present the same material in a different way. Neither the readings nor the lectures are a replacement for each other; deeply understanding the material will likely require attendance as well as reading. It is possible to read before or after class, depending on your learning style.
