The security of a computer system is considered in these lectures and three important aspects of system security are surveyed: cryptography, software approaches and cryptographic protocols. Data security is discussed paying particular attention to modern techniques of encryption and cryptanalysis. Technical basis of access control modeling and multilevel system requirements is presented and most useful models for multilevel security are highlighted. Views are expressed on how security requirements can be met through the use of protocols built on highly secure cryptographic techniques.
