Networking technologies have had enormous growth in the past decade, and increasingly our daily lives depends on them. As this dependence grows further, the security of these networks becomes more critical and important. To that end, this course is a continuation of the “Data and Network Security” course which is being offered at the undergraduate level. Building on the topics covered there, the aim of this course is to introduce advanced concepts and mechanism in network security and familiarize the student with current day issues in the field. Topics which will be covered to various extends include Firewalls, IDS/NIDS, DoS/DDoS, Routing Security, Wireless Security, Web Security (i.e. Cookies, Phishing, etc.), Privacy/Traffic Analysis, Anonymity, Worms/Malware, Honeypots, Network Forensics, and VoIP Security.
