MSI 416: Communications Networking & Security



Assignment given in any week is due at the beginning of the class on the same day in the following week. There will be a penalty for late assignments unless there is a very pressing reason for the delay. Please work individually on all assignments. Stop by the instructor offices if you have difficulty in understanding the assignment or the course material discussed in the class.

Term Paper (on Computer Security)

If students are asked to write a term paper the students should make two person teams. Each team must complete a term paper on one of the topics presented by the instructor. The paper should include a broad introduction of the topic and a comprehensive discussion of a few selected aspects of the topic. The paper should be four pages (single spaced, 12 pt text) long so the students should make an effort to write four pages of original text. The paper should reflect a clear understanding of the subject by the student. The presentation should not exceed more than five viewgraphs. Please use your critical thinking skills to be concise and focused on both the paper as well as the presentations. As an alternative the instructor may give the students some readings that he/she is supposed to analyze and discuss in the class.
