IA 340A -- Intro to IA -- Lecture Notes

These slide files are coded to the corresponding chapters in Volumes I & II of the Computer Security Handbook, 6th Edition edited by Sy Bosworth, M. E. Kabay & Eric Whyne, editors (2014, Wiley). AMAZON link.

The MS-PowerPoint files (PPTX) are available for students in IA340 & IA342 and for any other non-commercial educational use; the PDF notes are available for more economical printing if you like dribbling pigment on compressed plant fibers. Most students are simply using laptops or pads to view the slides and make notes. Useful for study and review; however, I have abolished Death by PowerPoint in most class sessions and now conduct discussions with occasional videos to enliven the two weekly 1.5-hour course sessions. However, there are a few topics where I fly through the slides to point out key points.

Students should read or at least scan the assigned readings before coming to class.
