I guess the subsequent question is kind of open ended so I'll try to start with what kind of stuff i'd like to learn more about: encryption/decryption, circumventing firewalls/about firewalls in general, data protection and the accessing of protected data. Also I'm curious about the theory of DOS attacks but I realize that might be a sketchy topic.
right now i have the option to take some intro computer science classes. Since i have no experience coding i figured that this could be a good way to start to learn(the class teaches java). Is this the case or would my time be better spent learning in different ways?
Let me just disclaim that I'm only interested in this stuff as knowledge for the sake of knowledge and I certainly don't intend to do anything malicious

thanks, centip3de. You mentioned that DOS are last ditch attempts to take down a server, what "field" would this kind of thing fall into? Like, what should i google if I wanted to learn more about the other strategies to take down a server?
