This course will provide an introduction to the technical and policy issues surrounding homeland security and cyber security.

The course is a 4-site distance-learning experiment involving the University of Washington, UC Berkeley, UC San Diego, and Microsoft. Lead instructors will be Ed Lazowska (UW Computer Science & Engineering), Steve Maurer (UCB Goldman School of Public Policy), Stefan Savage (UCSD Computer Science & Engineering), and Geoff Voelker (UCSD Computer Science & Engineering).

The course will meet Wednesday evenings from 6:30-9:20 (the UW classroom is CSE 305; the Berkeley classroom is 290 Hearst Mining Building; the Microsoft classroom is 113/1159; the UCSD classroom is EBU3B 1202), with two 15-minute breaks at approximately 7:20 and 8:20.

For Berkeley students, the first course session will be Wednesday August 31. UW and UCSD students will join the course on Wednesday September 28. The final course session will be Wednesday December 7. The four Berkeley-only course sessions will focus on {homeland security - cyber security}. Of the eleven additional sessions, seven will focus on cyber security and the remaining four on other homeland security topics.

Course requirements will include substantial reading, active class participation (to the extent possible given the crufty electronic format), a substantial small-group term project, and several small-group cyber security exercises.
