Software Security and Testing (Spring 2014,Chinese)      (Fall 2016)

Software security is a hot and difficult problem in the field of information security. Testing is an important means to ensure software security. This project will develop the courseware of the course "Software security and testing". The course introduces the basic concepts and methods of software security, introduces the basic methods and techniques of software testing, as well as in software development and software application.
