KYBS5593 Network and Information Security (JSS29) (3 cr)
This course provides an introduction to network and information security. Students will study the issues involved in defining and assuring the security of information and networking systems, including many emerging applications in online social networks (OSN), Internet of Things (IoT), and Cyber Physical Systems (CPS).
Course topics covered include network security, security protocol design and analysis, security modeling, key management, intrusion detection, DDOS detection and mitigation, web security, privacy, anonymity, theoretical limitations and practical implementations and other emerging topics such as Advanced Persistent Threat in IoT and other threats in OSN.
Coursework includes a significant team project.
The course project requires that students execute research in network and information security. There will be a final report. Project topics will be discussed in class after the introductory material is completed. Be realistic about what can be accomplished in one week. However, the work should reflect real thought and effort. The grade will be based on the following factors: novelty, depth, correctness, clarity of presentation, and effort.
Project teams may include groups of up to three students; however, groups of greater size will be expected to make greater progress.
