Course Description

This 14-video course helps learners explore the threat categories in the STRIDE (Spoofing, Tampering, Repudiation, Information Disclosure, Denial of Service, and Elevation of Privilege) model for identifying computer security threats, including spoofing, tampering, repudiation, information disclosure, denial of service (DoS), and escalation of privilege. Key concepts covered in this course include categories of security vulnerabilities using the STRIDE model; how to recognize authenticity and identity spoofing threats; and how to validate integrity and tampering threats. Next, you will learn about authentication threats and non-repudiation, when used in security, for example, when a charge cannot be challenged; learn information threats such as privacy breaches or data leaks; and learn the threat of DoS attacks, a resource disruption attack when a user tries to connect. Learners continue by exploring the privilege escalation threat model; learning to recognize examples of security misconfiguration threats; and observing methods of brute force attacks and key sizes. Finally, learn to perform a local network scan and a targeted remote scan by using Nmap; and learn to perform a DoS vulnerability diagnostic test on a host.
