Prerequisite: CIS 2271 or 3030 CIS 4040 Computer Security (3) spring This course focuses on security issues associated with computers and computer networks. The course starts by covering cryptographic topics such as symmetric and public key systems, digital signatures, secure hashes, cryptographic random number generation, and message authentication codes. Network security topics are also covered including secure protocols (SSH, SSL, IPSec), network attack methods, network authentication protocols (for example, Kerberos), and firewalls. Finally, the course covers host security matters such as building secure software, auditing, and intrusion detection; 3 hours of lecture per week.

Prerequisite: CIS 3040 or 3152 CIS 4050 Compiler Design (3) spring This course investigates how languages are implemented and gives the student enough knowledge to build specialized “mini languages” for niche applications. Students will use compiler generation tools, such as Lex and Yacc, and will create some hand-built components. Although some theory is presented, the emphasis is on implementation (programming) rather than theorem-proving. Most programming is done in C, but other languages (C++, JAVA) are also used; 3 hours of lecture per week. Prerequisite: CIS 3030 and 3050 CIS 4120 Systems Analysis and Design (3) spring This course addresses the methodology used in gathering data, analyzing data, and determining user requirements for information processing using advanced systems analysis techniques and the associated techniques used in designing solutions that can then be programmed as application software for use on computer-based systems; 3 hours of lecture. Prerequisite: Junior standing in CIS or CPE and CIS 2260

Prerequisite: CIS 3070 or 3090 CIS 4140 Human Computer Interaction (3) as required This course covers the design, implementation, and evaluation of user interfaces for computers and other modern, complex electronic equipment; 3 hours of lecture per week. Prerequisite: CIS 2260 and 1152 Course Descriptions CIS 4150 Software Engineering (3) fall This course is chiefly concerned with the application of engineering principles to the all-too-chaotic process of software development. The student will learn how the concepts of repeatability, modularity, traceability, maintainability, and reusability affect the architecture and design of software systems. The software life cycle and how it is supported by various methodologies will be explored, as well as the ramifications of differing team sizes to the selection of traditional versus agile methods. The student will be shown how documentation techniques, modeling languages, and CASE tools can be used to minimize miscommunications and ensure that the system desired is the system that is eventually built; 3 hours of lecture per week. Prerequisite: CIS 3030 and 3050
