This course gives an introduction to the whole field of information security, but then focuses on computer security. Moments treated both theoretically and through practical exercises in the course are for example various forms of authentication (such as biometric and password-based), access control, and ethical and legal aspects of computer security. Both threats and tools for dealing with the threats are addressed.


In Kalmar, Linnaeus University is located in the city centre. Universitetskajen is entirely newly-built and located just next to the sea. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

The city centre is also where most students live. Everything is available within a ten-minute bicycle ride, regardless of whether you want to take a swim in the sea, study, do some shopping, or work out. Historical buildings and cobblestone streets give charm to the city. When it is sunny, the area next to Kalmar Castle’s moat is filled with studying and sunbathing students. Student life is a natural part of Kalmar. This is where your dream of the future begins!
