NETWORKS, SYSTEMS AND WEB SECURITY

CSE3NWX

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject begins with an overview of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) architecture and security attacks on system services, and a discussion of different existing security mechanisms. The main focus includes cryptography, system security, network and web security. The students learn: (1) cryptographic algorithms and protocols, underlying network security applications including single-key and public-key encryption methods, hash functions, digital signatures and key exchange; (2) intrusion detection systems and firewalls that can be used to protect a computer system from security threats, such as intruders, viruses, and worm; (3) the use of cryptographic algorithms and security protocols for providing network and internet security in terms of user authentication/identification, IP security and Web security.

Intended Learning Outcomes

01. Evaluate and apply system-level security methodologies, including the threat of and counter-measures for intruders and viruses, and the use of firewalls and trusted systems to protect networks and computer system.
02. Evaluate and apply cryptographic algorithms and protocols underlying network security applications, including encryption, hash functions, digital signatures, and key exchange to provide network and internet security.
03. Analyse security and privacy issues by using important network security tools and applications, including Kerberos, PGP, and IPSec, SSL/TLS to protect the network and computer system.
04. Investigate possible risks, ethical and social considerations relevant to information privacy and security issues in networking.
