Military and civilian computing systems are frequently attacked by espionage services,organized crime, and hacking groups. In this course, students will investigate the cyber threat environment, network attack, the design of network perimeter defence, and defence-in-depth. The capstone activity is a two-week cyber defence exercise at term end, organized and run by the National Security Agency, involving military college teams from Canada. Students completing this course will be able to design a defensive computer network architecture and understand the network cyber operations environment. Topics include: firewall design; deployment of intrusion detection and prevention systems; design and implementation of security policy; and identification and authentication.
