Computer Networks (CNT)
This course provides a foundation in the fundamentals of network security defense including intrusion detection and firewalls. Students will examine advanced topics such as security policies, packet filtering and analysis, perimeter defense, virtual private networks, and network traffic signatures.
This course covers the fundamental concepts relating to information security management including confidentiality, integrity, availability, vulnerability, threats, risks and countermeasures. It includes an overview of current national legislation and regulations which impact information security management and a discussion on current business and common technical environments in which information security management has to operate.
Students integrate computer and networking hardware and software into a robust, secure, redundant, and resilient infrastructure. Students research and present findings related to enterprise projects in computer networking design.
In this course, students will examine computer network goals, models and designs for both local-area networks and wide-area networks with specific emphasis on internetworking principles. They will evaluate current network technologies and use these in the planning of a network. Through simulation techniques and graph and queuing theory, students will plan the capacity of a network and analyze its performance.
