Secure information system software development tools
Students of this Bachelor’s program acquire fundamental knowledge of programming languages, methods and technologies, and learn to use them in practice in developing information systems (IS) with due account taken of the present-day needs for information security, reliability of operation, and immunity to external interference, including cyberattacks. That is why the IT industry of today has set forth additional requirements for software in development: in the first place, it must be safe for the entire IS infrastructure; it must be free of any potential vulnerabilities; it must interact technically correctly with its software and hardware environment (the operating system, data transmission networks, and cloud services); it must not compromise the system’s overall security as a whole; and it must be able to detect potentially dangerous activities both outside and inside the system, whether by a human or a software tool, i.e. to possess artificial intelligence in this regard.
Our students master the principles of designing, building and operating IS and databases, the skills of object-oriented, network, cross-platform, automatic and multi-agent programming, plus the skills of building applied and special-purpose software and math tools. That includes programming for secure operating systems (Astra Linux, MSVS).
Software security technology is a multifaceted issue. Here is a list of some of its aspects: analysis of software security threats; formal software verification and specification methods; methods of creating algorithmically safe and effective procedures, methods and means of identifying software and verifying the integrity and authenticity of the program code; checking the executable code for the presence of program bookmarks; protection of software from unauthorized copying. In addition, present-day IT industry specialists need to know the standards and regulatory documents governing the security of software and information processed, the legal and organizational framework for the development and maintenance of IS software.
Alumni can be employed as
