Mission & Content Summary
MISSION

he development of complex software systems requires different many skillscooperating in a coordinated manner, ranging from technical abilities and managerial attitudes. Insuch a complex job, designers must be supported by suitable, and possibly standardized, tools andpractices that can be used throughout the whole life of the software product. In addition to thedesign practices and techniques, including, for instance, the analysis of requirements, the designof the architecture, the verification and validation activities and the process maintenance, theawareness of software vulnerabilities that might expose the user data to potential attack isbecoming nowadays more and more important. Developing secure systems is a hard problemmixing elements of cryptography, software engineering, secure networking, besides political andsocial challenges.The focus of the course is on the development of secure complex softwaresystem and aim to provide a coherent view of the foundation of software design combined andthe main techniques defining the basis of the development of secure software.

CONTENT SUMMARY

The course is about the design, the verification and validation and the maintenance of complexsoftware with a specific focus on the identification of the requirements of the software productand some classes of vulnerabilities that might expose the application to potential dangerousbreach compromising the security.


Intended Learning Outcomes (ILO)
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
At the end of the course student will be able to...
  • Understand the paradigms and the models for developing a software system and the main tools for estimating the size of a software system and the needed resources.
  • Analyze the goals, assumptions and requirements associated with a software system.
  • Comprehend the architecture of a software system.
  • Understand the verification and validation activities needed for software systems.
