Secure Software Development (WS 2021/22)
Table of Content
This course deals with the design and implementation of secure software. Especially memory corruption vulnerabilities such as buffer overflows, integer overflows or use-after-free bugs can be exploited by an attacker to bypass the intended program behavior and execute arbitrary payload in the worst case. We will look at various runtime mitigation techniques such as ASLR, stack canaries and data execution prevention exist. However, they can often be bypassed by more advanced exploitation techniques. Rather than preventing certain attacks, the ultimate goal is to eliminate memory corruption vulnerabilities and achieve “memory safety”. We will discuss methods for debugging and bug discovery as well.

This semester all lectures and tutorials are streamed online via Youtube. Questions can be asked via Youtube and Discord. We will have Discord live sessions with voice chat as well as text channels throughout the whole semester.
How to get a grade for the lecture?
Written or Oral Exam (possibly virtual). Optional hacklets can be solved during the semester to earn bonus points for the exam.
How to get a grade for the practicals?
The grade consists of multiple practical assignments in combination with oral exams (possibly virtual).
