This is a course in data security with a special emphasis on network security. The idea is to give a good coverage of threats against computers on a network and the tools to thwart them.
The course covers:

- IP Security
- Web Security
- network management security
- intruders and hackers
- malicious software
The course will have lectures and practical assignments. Lectures are given on campus in Växjö and also online. There will be tutoring online for the practical work each week.
Time for introduction of assignments and tutoring is not scheduled yet but will be soon. This is the time table.
On-line teaching will be given using the Adobe Connect platform. This URL will take you directly to the correct Connect room: https://connect.sunet.se/r316ducv2b4/
The course will be examined by a written exam on the theoretical parts of the course and with reports covering the practical work. For students registered as distance students there will be an option to also write the exam on distance. See more details in the grading criteria document.
