Some programming background is necessary. A specific language is
not required, but it is assumed you can pick up new languages
where needed for this course.
One lab for the CSCI section will be related to buffer overflows in C.
This course also assumes you are savvy with the Linux command
line, or have the willingness to put in the extra effort needed to become proficient.
From the course catalog: This course is an extensive survey of network security. The course materials cover threats to information confidentiality, integrity, and availability in different Internet layers, and defense mechanisms that control these threats. The course also provides a necessary foundation on network security, such as cryptographic, primitives/protocols, authentication, authorization and access control technologies; and hands-on experiences through programming assignments and course projects.
