- I expected much more theory, roughly at the level of information flow analysis.» (No, the goals are set too low)
- Resonable, but could have been higher without being unreasonable. I had not taken the Computer security course, but still managed to handle the lab assignments with very little trouble.» (Yes, the goals seem reasonable)

- Not all material was checked, for instance security protocols and information flow. That would depend on what project one has chosen, though.» (To some extent)
- Well, there was no exam: just labs and a project, but the labs were quite good in ensuring one understands the subject.» (I don"t know/have not been examined yet)

Course specific questions

7. What did you think about the Reading Circles, format, structure, and content?

- ok»
- There were reading circles? I like the setup anyhow.»
- Very good labs, extremely good lectures.»
- Reading Circles??? Are we talking about the TDA601 Language-based security course, or some literature course?»

8. What did you think about the workshops, content, scope, suggestions for improvement?

- the labs were a bit too easy»
- The only "workshop-ish" I noticed was the information flow challenge, which was ok.»
- I assume that this question concerns the labs. All of the labs were actually very interesting and I feel that I learned a lot from them. The combination of first developing an attack and then securing the system from it really helps the learning process.»
- Very good assistants and labs.»
- Workshop? Hmm, this question seems to be specific to another course then I took.»

9. What is your impression of the exhibition, organization, scope, value for the course?

- ok»
- There has been no such thing as an exhibition.»
- The course was very well organized and it was easy to find the information you were looking for.»
- Nice to end the course with some presentations.»
- There were no exhibitions in the Language-based security course.»

- I had much higher expectations of the course. I thought it would contain a lot more theory and current research. Instead, it was a list of common programming mistakes and how to avoid them. In my opinion, all current labs could be summarized in a single lecture together with examples showing how terribly bad it is with lazy programmers.» (Adequate)

18. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- the labs were fun - but maybe too simple»
- I think the current format with lab assignment and a project instead of an exam is ideal for this course.»
- The labs are great.»
- Mr. Sabelfeld should continue as the instructor.»
- The absence of exam. Exam is not necessary for such courses.»
- The assignments were really good and helped to understand the course.»
- Andrei.»
- Labs, project.»
- labs, lab schedule»

19. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- see 18»
- Farids lecture was 1) Irrelevant for the subject and 2) Way too long.»
- More information flow analysis. It seems to be a really fun topic. It would be nice with more lectures about real research (especially by Mr. Sabelfeld or Mr. Sands, but it would of course be ok with other researchers as well). Finally, it might be a good idea with a mandatory jif-lab, or possibly projects to improve jif (according to a friend who did a project with jif, it needs more work before it can become an every-day tool). It might be too difficult, but an interesting project would be to merge jif with BNFC to generate an information flow analyzing compiler.»
- Nothing.»
- There should be more presentations.»
- I think the labs should be changed to next year. They are good, but if you already have some knowledge it was very easy to solve them. A suggestion would be to have two parts of the labs: one mandatory (the labs we now have) and add a voluntary part, which is a little bit harder.»
- Maybe some more time to get help with the project and not only the labs.»
- Probably, it would help to rearrange the focus among the topics, and, for example, give a bit more time for the rootshell lab.»

Additional comments

20. .

- Really good course»
- One small problem I had with the course was that the project is chosen before a lot of interesting material has been covered. So a few lectures after the project deadline I really felt that I wanted to do something else. I know that it is hard to do something about it though. Perhaps have more lectures during the first two weeks? Or maybe cover a lot of the different topics in a more shallow way during the first lectures and then going in depth during the later lectures. That way the students will have been introduced to the topics earlier.»
- This questionnaire is a mess: duplicate questions, questions about some other course... I guess, it will be of no use for evaluation of TDA601 Language-based security»
