I would have liked more opportunities for labs and to learn how to implement the security infrastructure systems rather than do peer-reviewed papers.

I found some of the class acronym and discussion heavy. More graphics and real world examples may have made the material a little easier to digest.

I would strongly recommend, when lecture is being played, show more of the process as animated instead of teacher's appearance.
