Picture of Andrew Reiter

Brief Biographical Sketch:

Andrew studies chemical engineering now, but is experienced in many fields. An amateur explosives expert, he spent his past two summer in Boston working for a company that specializes in military technology. With a self-taught electrical engineering and computer science background, Andrew is heading to grad school next year to conquer the final frontier - mechanical engineering. He spends much of his free time building robots; some that win competitions, some that do your bidding, and some that are just funny to watch. Andrew also enjoys Nerf battles, water gun battles, paintball battles, kung fu battles, and jumping out of planes.

M34: Hacking: Computer Security 101 in Splash 2010 (Apr. 03, 2010)
In this hands-on course, we will introduce students to the methods of offensive computer security (hacking). We will provide a brief overview of programming and computer hardware and then show students how to exploit common security holes. This course will be fast-paced. However, the course will be fun for all and students should expect to walk away with a better understanding of computer security.
