Integrating Security Into Traditional Computer Science Courses
Welcome to SecKnitKit project!
Organized by Computer Science department, Tennessee Tech University, and supported by National Science Foundation Award #1140864 SecKnitKit (Security Knitting Kit): Integrating Security into Traditional Computer Science Courses
The goal of this project is to improve the security literacy of undergraduate Computer Science (CS) students by exposing them to computer security concepts and issues in their regular course of study in CS. Faculty whose primary teaching/research focus is not security are provided support for integrating security topics into their traditional upper division CS courses and for delivering learning material through the use of a multi-faceted instructional support system. The objectives of this project are:
- to improve security awareness, knowledge and interest of undergraduate CS students;
- to improve security awareness and teaching expertise for non-security faculty; and
- to promote the use of security integration strategy and materials for traditional
