DFSC 3316. Cryptography and Network Scrty. 3 Hours.
Students study both the theory and practice of cryptography and computer and network security, and focus on the security aspects of the web and the internet. Students survey cryptographic tools used to provide security, such as shared key encryption, public key encryption, key exchange, and digital signature algorithms. In addition, students review how these tools are used in the current Internet protocols and network security applications, including wireless network protocols. System security issues, such as viruses, worms, intrusion, and firewalls are also discussed.
