Assembly Language Programming

This course introduces the student to assembly language, specifically which is used with the Intel 80x86 computer architecture. Topics include data representation, branching and looping, procedures, string operation, bit manipulation and macros. Secure coding techniques will be taught by exploring integer overflow and buffer overflow attacks. By learning how to write in assembly language, the student will better understand how programs are executed in a computer and how to optimize performance of programs written in high-level languages, such as C++. The student will be assigned programming projects as homework. Prerequisite: CS-130 or CS-150 (3-0-3)
