Network Security and Management

The objective of this module is to introduce students to the various issues that arise in securing and managing the networks, and study the state-of-the-art techniques for addressing these challenges. A number of most damaging attacks on computer systems involve the exploitation of network infrastructure. This course provides an in-depth study of network attack techniques and methods to defend against them. Topics include basic concepts in network security and management; firewalls and virtual private networks; network intrusion detection; denial of service (DoS); traffic analysis; secure routing protocols; protocol scrubbing; and advanced topics such as wireless network security.
