Secure Systems Engineering
The course will cover systems security considerations in functional analysis, decomposition and requirements processes, and practical techniques and methods for developing and fielding secure architectures. Students will understand how to incorporate threat and vulnerability analysis into the architecture and design process. We will undertake investigation of actual secure system solutions starting with the development of the organization’s security policy and tracing the development of the system through to deployment. Students will be presented with comparable secure system developments in varying degrees of completeness and challenged to complete the development. Among our focus will be developing assurance evidence, penetration analysis, and identification of architectural component. The course will then challenge students to take a security policy document and design criteria, and work to engineer and field a system.
