Course Description

This course introduces the various methodologies for defending a network. Students focus on the concepts of firewalls, including packet filtering, proxy firewalls, application gateways, circuit gateways, and stateful inspection; however, firewalls are most effective when backed by thoughtful security planning, well-designed security policies, and integrated support from anti-virus software, intrusion detection systems, and related tools. This course explores firewalls in the context of these critical elements, providing an overview that focuses on both managerial and technical aspects of security.
