Protect & Defend

Defense In Depth Netowrk Security


This series of hands on lab exercises are intended to support courses in Network Security. These labs survey and demonstrate common defensive security mechanisms found in enterprise networks. Within a simulated network, students will install, configure, and test various levels of network security. The labs can be utilized to build on each other to emphasize planning and design or run individually to demonstrate a single security mechanism. ​​​​​​​ Learn More




Network Monitoring & IPS


This course teaches the concepts, applications, configuration, and implementation of enterprise network monitor and intrusion prevention systems (IPS) technologies. Built on the prerequisite courses, this course is intended to teach the students the breadth and depth of the topics of SNMP, network management, deep packet inspection, log file analysis, anomaly detection, host and network-based IPS, distributed IPS, and Honeynets/Honeypots. Learn More




Encryption


This program introduces individuals to the world of Encryption. Students will ​​​​​​learn different types of it, tools for modern cryptography, the relevance of the exclusive-or operation, modular arithmetic, public and secret key cryptography, watermarking and steganography. Multiple applications will provide an opportunity to get hands-on experience in building Diffie-Hellman Key Exchange, RSA authentication, Zero Knowledge proof authentication, AES, DES, TripleDES, stream ciphers, and many more.
