Description - Security for Software Engineers by James N. Helfrich

Security for Software Engineers is designed to introduce security concepts to undergraduate software engineering students. The book is divided into four units, each targeting activities that a software engineer will likely be involved in within industry.

The book explores the key areas of attack vectors, code hardening, privacy, and social engineering. Each topic is explored from a theoretical and a practical-application standpoint.


  • Targets software engineering students - one of the only security texts to target this audience.
  • Focuses on the white-hat side of the security equation rather than the black-hat side.
  • Includes many practical and real-world examples that easily translate into the workplace.
  • Covers a one-semester undergraduate course.
  • Describes all aspects of computer security as it pertains to the job of a software engineer and presents problems similar to that which an engineer will encounter in the industry.

This text will equip students to make knowledgeable security decisions, be productive members of a security review team, and write code that protects a user's information assets.
