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.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
