CIS 166 - Network Intrusion Detection 5 Credits
Designed to give a networking student professional a solid foundation of network and computer security tasks. Focuses on use of network logs, use of intrusion detection systems, establishment of policies and conducting vulnerability analysis. Introduces knowledge of standard default communication ports and how to alter them for securing the network. Auditing and monitoring of systems without impacting system performance is stressed. Introduces security on multiple platforms similar to the business environment. Covers viruses, worms, DoS (denial of service) and DDoS (distributed denial of service) attacks. Introduces new attack vulnerabilities.
Pre-requisite(s) CIS 161 min 2.0
