Network Assurance covers secure network practices necessary to protect networked systems against attacks and exploits. Network security administration topics include firewalls, intrusion detection/prevention, common cryptographic ciphers, AAA (authentication, authorization, and accounting), server and client security, and secure policy generation.
The student will demonstrate an understanding of:
- Layered defense in depth that includes firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems and the most current cryptographic standards for data protection.
- Data logging, auditing, authentication and authorization, as well as the benefits of honeypots.
- Wen Server Security, Secure Routers and principles and practices of Client Security.
- The common techniques of implementing cloud based and virtual networks to include vulnerabilities.
