Computer Networking Technology - CNT 262
3 Credit Hours3 Lecture Hours
This course builds upon a foundation of networking knowledge to cover network defense principles, technologies and methods used to secure the perimeters of networks that are becoming increasingly relied upon to provide shared access of resources between remote networks and devices. Topics covered include network security threats, layering of security mechanisms/Defense in Depth, access control and reporting, advanced TCP/IP concepts, placement of defenses and cryptography. Students will also explore network security components such as firewalls, intrusion detection and virtual private networks.
(A requirement that must be completed before taking this course.)
Upon successful completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- Summarize security threats facing modern network infrastructures.
- Describe network technologies and components used to secure networks.
- Explain the importance of access control, authentication, authorization and accounting in network defense.
- Compare virtual private network (VPN) technologies and their ability to provide protections such as confidentiality, authentication and integrity.
- Determine appropriate placement of network security components within a network.
- Incorporate layering of security mechanisms and defense-in-depth practices for network designs.
- Utilize software to document, manage, investigate and troubleshoot networks for security.
- Handle tasks related to the installation and configuration of firewalls.
- Handle tasks related to the configuration and management of VPNs.
