CS3695 Network Vulnerability Assessment and Risk Mitigation

This course provides a basis for understanding the potential vulnerabilities and their mitigation in networked systems by studying methods to: (1) obtain information about a remote network, (2) to possibly exploit or subvert systems residing on that network and (3) techniques to mitigate risks to networked systems. Labs provide practical experience with current network attack and vulnerability assessment tools, as well as tools and methodologies for a systematic approach to reducing vulnerabilities. A final project that demonstrates skill and knowledge is required.
