Course Description & Objectives: 

This unit aims to provide students with an advanced knowledge of network security. The course will begin by reviewing traditional  network protections. The course will then consider important works in advanced secure protocol design and formal analysis, advanced authentication, network configuration and management, intrusion detection and other topics. Topics to be covered include the design and implementation of some important  public key systems: RSA and Elliptic  Curvealgorithms; concepts of quantum cryptography; quantum computing and cryptography; wireless computing and cryptography; design, implementation and configuration of firewalls in depth; de- sign, implementation and configuration of intrusion detection systems; honeypots; prevention sys- tems; advanced network security architectures; advanced wireless security: principle and practice; security in trusted-based computing environments.

Learning Outcomes: 

At the completion of this unit students will:Achieve sound knowledge and practical skills (design, implementation, and configuration) in network security.Understand the design and implementation of advanced security mechanisms  such as crypto- graphic algorithms for wired and wireless computing environments.Achieve sound knowledge of network security components including the design, implementa- tion, and configuration of Firewalls, Intrusion Detection Systems (static and dynamic checking of programs, anomaly detection, large-scale (Internet-wide) distributed intrusion detection, early sensing, complex attack scenario analysis, and automated response.), Prevention Sys- tems, Firewalls, IDSs, VPNs and prevention systems together.Develop knowledge of advanced network security architectures to allow better network pro- tection, load balancing and recovery from attacks.
