Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes
01. Analyse system / network security and identify security flaws in a system / network.
- Lectures will discuss existing security systems and what are the flaws in the security for these systems. Students will also learn about how to identify security loop holes for these systems and compare with new security systems.
02. Analyse cryptographic algorithms (encryption, hash functions, digital signature, key exchange etc.) and the underlying mathematical structures.
- The lectures will outline existing cryptography algorithms including digital signature, key exchange protocols, syn keys, Asynchronous keys, how these logarithms are developed will also be discussed. There will be couple of labs analyzing these algorithms.
03. Review and test important security tools and applications such as Kerberos, PGP, IPsec and SSL/TLS.
- Lectures will discuss selected security tools used in current cybersecurity context and review such tools for various case studies. Students will also do two labs to review security testing tools.
04. Identify and investigate ethical and social considerations relevant to information privacy and security issues.
- Lectures and tutorials will involve case studies about ethical and social considerations with respect to information privacy and security.
05. Review and analyse the functions and operation of firewalls and intrusion detection systems.
- Lectures and labs will discuss current firewall operations and Intrusion detection systems. The existing firewall techniques will be reviewed in depth.
06. Analyse system / network vulnerability and design access control mechanisms.
- Lectures and labs will discuss network vulnerablities and access control design and development issues.
