This course introduces students to the most common security vulnerabilities faced by databases today. Each vulnerability is examined from a database perspective through a process of describing the threat and attack mechanisms, recognizing associated vulnerabilities, and, finally, designing, implementing, and testing effective defenses. Multiple practical demonstrations reinforce these concepts with real vulnerabilities and attacks. Students will learn how to design and implement the layered defenses they will need in defending their own databases.
