This course we will explore the foundations of software security. We will consider important software vulnerabilities and attacks that exploit them -- such as buffer overflows, SQL injection, and session hijacking -- and we will consider defenses that prevent or mitigate these attacks, including advanced testing and program analysis techniques. Importantly, we take a "build security in" mentality, considering techniques at each phase of the development cycle that can be used to strengthen the security of software systems. Successful learners in this course typically have completed sophomore/junior-level undergraduate work in a technical field, have some familiarity with programming, ideally in C/C++ and one other "managed" program language (like ML or Java), and have prior exposure to algorithms. Students not familiar with these languages but with others can improve their skills through online web tutorials.

Principales reseñas sobre SEGURIDAD DE SOFTWARE
Very good material. I am a software proffesional and there were topics that I really did not know and it is a very good starting point for me.
Very useful course to update the current knowlege and to learn new technologies and theoretical facts. Also, identified how software security should be combined with software development.
Could have gone more deeper in some of the topics which were covered at very high level. Overall a good introduction to the subject matter.
I really appreciated all of the knowledge checks during this course. It kept me engaged with the material which was very new to me. Excellent instructor!
Acerca de Programa especializado: seguridad cibernética
The Cybersecurity Specialization covers the fundamental concepts underlying the construction of secure systems, from the hardware to the software to the human-computer interface, with the use of cryptography to secure interactions. These concepts are illustrated with examples drawn from modern practice, and augmented with hands-on exercises involving relevant tools and techniques. Successful participants will develop a way of thinking that is security-oriented, better understanding how to think about adversaries and how to build systems that defend against them.
