Unit Description

Modern corporate networks face a number of challenges, amongst which possibly the most severe are deliberate attacks by a number of actors. This unit focuses on building networks designed for security. You will learn the theory and practice of building, securing, monitoring and repairing corporate networks, including core network functions and services such as routing, DNS, web, and email. There are two main components of the unit: lectures and written assignments covering the principles involved, and practical assignments in which you will build your own miniature corporate network using free open source software on virtual servers. You will also connect your network to those of other students, defend your network against attacks, and attack other networks.
