Network Visualization and Vulnerability Detection
The course will introduce the concept and principles of network security. It will provide a conceptual construct of how to think about securing networks, how to translate this into basic architectural design, and then a survey of some component level considerations. It will then move into deeper investigation of specific topics in network security, including: network visualization, network analysis, perimeter defense strategies, network monitoring, vulnerability detection, and security in mobile and wireless environments. Within this context, students will understand how to apply the various pieces/topics into a cohesive network security strategy.
