Network Management & Security
(Network Management & Security)

The course covers theory and practice of computer security, focusing in particular on the security aspects of the web and Internet. It surveys cryptographic tools used to provide security, such as shared key encryption (DES, 3DES, RC-4/5/6, etc.); public key encryption, key exchange, and digital signature (Diffie-Hellmann, RSA, DSS, etc.). It then reviews how these tools are utilized in the internet protocols and applications such as Kerberos, SSL, IPSEC, TLS, PGP, S/MIME, SET, and others. System security issues, such as viruses, intrusion, firewalls, network management and others will also be covered.
