CISY 5133  with "D" or better
In this course, students will integrate, configure and analyze network system components, security tools and procedures necessary to create enterprise class network security perimeters. Topics addressed include a combination of open source and proprietary security applications covering the fundamental components of an effective network security perimeter. These components include: firewalls, Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs), Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) Virtual Private Networks (VPN), authentication systems, port scanning, vulnerability scanning penetration testing, disaster recovery systems and security management systems. An in-depth analysis of the security risks associated with the TCP/IP protocol and associated sub-protocols will also be included as part of a final project.
