Course Objectives The goal of this course is to extend students’ knowledge in systems programming by focusing on practical network and multi threaded programming. Topics such as communication protocols, synchronization primitives, deadlocks, information security, authentication, confidentiality, integrity and digital signing are introduced in this course. The Java programming language will be used throughout the course. Time permits, Remote Method Invocation, Java Native interface is among other topics to be discussed in the course. All laboratory exercises and assignments will be performed in Java; therefore, to be able to complete this course, a student should have good programming skills in Java.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • be able to explain threading concepts and the advantages and potential problems of threaded programming
  • be able to write thread code
  • be able to explain the key principles of computer networks and their operation principles and protocols.
  • be able to implement socket programming and multi-threaded networking program
  • be able to apply security concepts of authentication, confidentiality, integrity and digital signing
Course Description To acquaint students with basic knowledge to develop systems programs that involves multi-threading and computer networks. It provides an introduction to multi-threading, socket programming and information security.
