Course Description
The TCP/IP protocols were not originally designed with security in mind, but no discussion of networking would be complete without addressing information security. This course will give you the opportunity to learn about common vulnerabilities at each layer of the TCP/IP model and then explore common mitigations to those security weaknesses. You will learn the components of the CIA triad and be able to list some vulnerabilities and attacks at each of the four layers of the TCP/IP model. You will also be introduced to the network access layer security protocols. In addition, this course covers the components of IPsec, the phases of an IPsec session, the role of virtual private networking in providing TCP/IP security, and how TLS, DNSSEC, and SSH are involved in TCP/IP security.
  • A strong foundation of basic networking concepts
