This course builds on the foundation of LAN security and forensic techniques established in FSCT 8540: Computer Security Networks 1. More advanced TCP/IP topics will be covered in a practical hands-on environment. The goal of this course is to address current network attacks and exploits in the real world, and the security strategies widely used to protect the network environment. Students will learn about common IP-based attacks and manipulations, network traffic analysis, perimeter defense through firewall design and implementation, Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) as well as network monitoring. Throughout this course, extensive hands-on exercises provide the students with practical experience in using and implementing packet filters, firewalls, IDS and network monitoring, coupled with good understanding of hacker tools and exploits and how to defend against them.
Admission to a Forensic credential program or permission of the Program Coordinator.
