Current Courses

IT Security (VIHIAC01)

This BSc course gives an overview of the different areas of IT security with the aim of increasing the security awareness of computer science students and shaping their attitude towards designing and using secure computing systems. The course prepares BSc students for security challenges that they may encounter during their professional carrier, and at the same time, it provides a basis for those students who want to continue their studies at MSc level (taking, for instance, our IT Security minor specialization). We put special emphasis on software security and the practical aspects of developing secure programs.

IT Security (in English) (VIHIAC01)

This BSc course gives an overview of the different areas of IT security with the aim of increasing the security awareness of computer science students and shaping their attitude towards designing and using secure computing systems.

IT Security Bootcamp (VIHIAL00)

This BSc course introduces problems related to general IT security.

Computer Security (VIHIMA06)

The course introduces security problems in computing systems, as well as the principles, practical mechanisms, and tools used to solve them. The term computer is interpreted in a broad sense, and it includes personal computers, servers, mobile devices, and embedded computers. The course covers physical security and OS level security of computers, software security issues at the application level, secure programming, and the problem of malicious software (malware).

IT Security Laboratory (VIHIMB01)

This laboratory extends and deepens the knowledge and skills obtained in the courses of the IT Security minor specialization by solving practical, hands-on exercises in real, or close-to-real environments.

Secure Software Development (VIHIAV33)

This course fills an important gap in the education of software engineers, - namely developing secure software applications. During this course, students will learn the most common mistakes in software development and how attackers exploit those mistakes (offensive security). Then, students get to know how to mitigate attacks and write secure software applications.

Student Project Proposals

IoT botnetek elemzése

Az elmúlt években világossá vált, hogy az IoT eszközök biztonsági réseit kihasználva a támadók világméretű, összehangolt támadásokat is képesek indítani. 2016-ban nagy port kavart a Mirai botnet, amely elosztott túlterheléses támadást (DDoS) hajtott végre, majd nem sokkal később felfedezték a Persirai, valamint az Amnesia botneteket. A botnetekbe kényszerített eszközöket a támadók távolról, az Interneten keresztül irányítják, a fertőzött eszközök a parancsokra reagálva hajtják végre a támadást.
