Course Description

Explore the world of security engineering, such as the engineering processes that use secure design principles. In this course, you will start by becoming familiar with security architecture and engineering practices. You will then compare various security models, such as the state machine, lattice, noninterference, information flow, Bell-LaPadula confidentiality, and Clark-Wilson integrity models. Next, you will learn how to select various technical controls based on a system's requirements. Other topics include: how to compare security capabilities of one system to another, and how to mitigate vulnerabilities in security architectures and designs. You will conclude the course with a review exercise on how to describe security engineering and design. In the exercise, you will list four principles of secure network design, name five common attributes of next generation firewalls, name four proxy types, and list three rules of the Bell-LaPadula model.
