This is completely off topic (the feature is irrelevant to the contents of
the course).
But - you are misunderstanding :) And yes I took a course in which I was
expected to demonstrate attacks on people's computers using e.g.
correlation power analysis. It was based on fake data but yes. They also
give courses in which you learn that there's these things called man in the
middle, buffer overflows and return-oriented programming!
