ADJ537: Network Forensics

3 Credit(s)


This course will introduce students to the topic of network security and provide them with a background on networking fundamentals such as common protocols, port numbers and relevant security appliances (firewalls, web filtering, IDPS). An emphasis will be placed on covering different types of network intrusion events and proposing countermeasures that can be applied by network defenders to detect/prevent these types of attacks. Students will also be trained on how to perform live collection & analysis of network events through the examination of packet capture (PCAP) files via Wireshark in order to understand the different pieces of evidence that can be gathered from such evidence and subsequently deployed as signatures to perform attack sensing and warning (AS&W) across an enterprise network.
