Overview

This is a self-paced course that provides an introduction to network security topics. The curriculum focusses on how malicious users attack networks. The material is essential in later classes that will develop ethical hacking skills. Students are introduced to some key concepts in network security. Next, we provide an overview of network reconnaissance strategies.

We move on to the next stage of the network attack methodology, which is exploitation.

Next, we cover standard attack techniques, attacks such as Denial of Service, DNS attacks, and client-side attacks, and the tools used to carry out these exploitations. We conclude by focusing on the steps attackers take after they initially compromise a system.
