CMIS 4103 - Information Security Techniques II♦


(5 cr.) Understanding a computer network as a symbiotic system connected to the Internet, including the relationships of network devices, such as gateways, switches, routers, and hubs, is important step in minimizing the risk of threats that compromise networks. In this course, students examine information security attacks and defenses in the network. They consider hardware and software vulnerabilities and denial of service attacks. Students take a hands-on approach to understanding defense techniques as they complete practical exercises focused on planning, detection, and recovery measures. They also explore and discuss the social and technical aspects of anonymity in the network as they relate to network abuse and free speech.
  (Prerequisite(s): CMIS 4102.)
