      There’s also a security class from the same place.

      “In this class you will learn how to design secure systems and write secure code. You will learn how to find vulnerabilities in code and how to design software systems that limit the impact of security vulnerabilities. We will focus on principles for building secure systems and give many real world examples. In addition, the course will cover topics such as:

      memory safety vulnerabilities,
      techniques and tools for vulnerability detection,
      sandboxing and isolation,
      web security,
      network security,
      malware detection and defense, and
      mobile platform security.

      Course homework and labs will teach students how to find vulnerabilities and how to fix them. The labs are designed to help students practice the principles of secure system design.”

      So we can register in this classes without being involved with Stanford in any way?

      Stanford isn’t the only one out there…..

      MIT, I think, was one of the first to offer “OpenCourseware.”

      http://ocw.mit.edu/index.htm

      There are some gems in there, like:

      http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electrical-engineering-and-computer-science/6-857-network-and-computer-security-fall-2003/

      Prof. Ronald Rivest is the “Rivest” from RSA (Rivest, Shamir, Adelman).

      W/o looking I know @ Stanford there were a couple others like game theory, analysis of algorithms, and other really Computer-sciency topics. Not bad for the price

      I have also just registered for the Computer Security class…
      Looks really interesting…

      Sounds interesting  🙂
      my friend is on to Cryptography classes, I am on ‘Computer Security class’

      I ended up registering for quite a few of these classes: Cryptograhy, Computer Science 101, Information Security, Information Theory, and Game Theory.

      Also, they recently ran an AI class that I had registered for, and completely forgot about… 🙁
      Did anyone else happen to catch it? Reviews? The only thing I can tell you is that most of the class (maybe all of it?) is given in the form of youtube videos. I can’t say that will be the case for these upcoming classes, but that would make it convenient. 🙂

      Cool, thanks for the link.  I think I will take this class from professor D. Boneh…I need to bone up on cryptography.
