ITE 315 Information Security

4 Credit(s)
The course covers a unified view of information security that examines the closely related areas of information security, software security, networks, web security and forensics using a common set of underlying security principles.  Students will get an understanding of how to model secure environments and how to implement these starting from standalone computers, operating systems and then going towards distributed networks and web.  Each of the security areas is examined in sufficient detail for students to understand the complexity of modern threats and the corresponding sophistication of the software and hardware that is designed to counter these threats.  Three lecture hours and three hours of scheduled laboratory per week. Prerequisite: ITE 310 .
