The objectives of this course are for the student to recognize the current importance of cryptography and its related technologies, their weaknesses and threats. Likewise, the student must know the principles, methods and means of security systems.
Regarding learning outcomes:
- R1. Knowledge and understanding: Have basic knowledge and understanding of the scientific and technological foundations of computer engineering, as well as specific knowledge of computer science, computer engineering and information systems.
- R2 Engineering Analysis: Be able to identify Computer Engineering problems, recognize their specifications, establish different resolution methods and select the most appropriate for their solution, taking into account the applicable social, human health, environment, and commercial limitations at stake.
- R3 Engineering Design: Being able to carry out engineering designs according to their level of knowledge and understanding. These designs must meet the required specifications and must be done collaborating with other engineers and graduates. Designing encompasses devices, processes, methods and objects, and specifications that are broader than strictly technical, including social awareness, health and safety, and environmental and business considerations.
In relation to basic and general competences, this subject addresses:
- CB1: That students have demonstrated to possess and understand knowledge in an area of study that starts from the base of general secondary education, and is usually found at a level that, although it is supported by advanced textbooks, also includes some aspects that involve knowledge from the forefront of the field of study.
- CGB3: Ability to understand and master the basic concepts of discrete mathematics, logic, algorithmic and computational complexity, and its application to solve engineering problems.
- CGO3 - Ability to design, develop, assess and ensure the accessibility, ergonomics, usability and security of computer systems, services and applications, as well as the information they manage.
Regarding the specific ones:
- CECRI1 - Ability to design, develop, choose and assess computer applications and systems, ensuring their reliability, safety and quality, in accordance with ethical principles and current legislation and regulations.
