Description

This course provides a thorough introduction to perimeter defense fundamentals. Although the primary emphasis is on intrusion detection, the course covers essential practices such as developing security policies and then implementing that policy by performing network address setting up packet filtering, firewalls, and virtual private networks. This course provides the student with a solid foundation in network and web security fundamentals but assumes familiarity with TCP/IP and basic security concepts.
