CSC 588. Wireless Programming and Security. 3 Credits.

This course provides an overview on wireless networking principles and technologies from the viewpoint of computer science majors. Since the subject of wireless communications covers many aspects including cellular telephone network, cordless phone, personal data assistant (PDA), satellite communication, even pager and two-way radio, this course cannot cover all of these systems. Instead, the major themes will focus on the fundamentals and principles. In particular, this course will cover the major differences between wired networks and wireless networks, the protocol stacks of wireless networks, and wireless data services. Security issues and protocols will also be discussed.
Pre / Co requisites: CSC 588 requires a prerequisite of CSC 535.
Typically offered in Fall.
