Secure Network Engineering
This course will introduce the principles of network security. We will discuss network topology, theory of network governance and control. We will explore various methods of network modeling and simulation. Students will learn about development, design and validation framework for secure network topologies. We will examine security from a design viewpoint and network performance expectations contrasted against various types of attacks including adaptive malware and analyzing deceptive techniques for defeating access control models. The course will provide review of modern networks design approaches and postulate some improvements for future work in attack resistant networks without total reliance on cryptography.
