Network and Security Applications Development COMP 8005

Computer Systems Course

Course details

This course is designed to provide students with a solid set of practical skills in the area of network and system-level programming on the Linux platform. The design and implementation of IPv4/IPv6 Client-Server applications is covered in-depth. Issues such as modularity and efficiency in the implementation of protocols will be covered. The emphasis will be very much the design and implementation of high-performance, robust, and scalable network applications. Security and private data transmission techniques over public networks are covered. Client-Server applications are designed and implemented using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) API. An in-depth coverage of techniques used to design and develop secure code and robust applications will be provided. Students will also be familiarized with the Bluetooth software development techniques.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Implement advanced communications protocols on a multi-processing, multitasking environment.
  • Use the IPV4 and IPv6 socket API calls in the design and implementation of networked applications.
  • Design and implement Client-Server applications over a multi-platform network (e.g. Windows Clients to a UNIX Server).
  • Use high-performance, edge-triggered system calls such as epoll to design and implement high-speed and high-load network applications.
  • Use the Berkeley Sockets API proficiently, including multicasting and raw sockets.
  • Design and implement secure applications using SSL.
  • Design and implement basic Client/Server applications for Bluetooth devices.
  • Use effective debugging techniques using tools such as gdb, gprof, valgrind, strace, ltrace, etc.
