to describe the advanced techniques that are used for protecting
software from tampering, reverse engineering, and piracy. The courses
will cover methods of software security and protection including code
obfuscation to protect against reverse engineering, HW/SW attack,
software watermarking to protect against software piracy,
tamper-proofing to protect against integrity-violations of software,
and models of security for specifying attack strategies, metrics, and
