CSEC-793 Capstone for Computing Security
Syllabus, Spring 2015-2016
Bo Yuan, Ph.D.
Department of Computing Security
We have a mixed student population, half is in class and half is online. Unlike the traditional blended courses we offered before, your attendance is required. The class will not be recorded due to the nature of the class. If you are working, please arrange your time properly and make the class time slots available for the class.
We will use connect.rit.edu for online students. Make sure you have a computer with a microphone and sufficient bandwidth to engage class activities smoothly. The meeting room should be at: https://connect.rit.edu/cseccapstone/.
Your final report should be typeset in Latex. Create an account on www.overleaf.com, we will use it for sharing drafts of your report. Only a minimum amount of knowledge of Latex is needed. Just follow a couple of examples at the website, get yourself familiar with it. A report template will be provided for your convenience.
This is a tentative schedule subject to change.
