Course Description

This course will survey e-espionage, e-business-to-business (b2b) information warfare, today's hacker versus yesterday's internet cracker, and the United States critical information highway. The ubiquitous nature of the personal computer as found in almost every agency, office and organization has created opportunities for e-terrorism, e-stalking and identity theft in conjunction with critical ethical issues that cross business lines. The course will follow a computer break-in and the investigation of clues left on the cracker's path through the twists and turns of computer cyberspace.
