You have always dreamt of hacking a network? You may have tried to do it, but failed so far… We are here to help you! More seriously, this course will be an introduction to Cybersecurity, where we will teach students the fundamentals of Cybersecurity and Information Security. Students will learn about the various concepts of cybersecurity, including: goals, terminology, challenges and threat landscape. This course will also focus on attacks that happened these past few years.
First, students will review the fundamental network (TCP/IP), web (HTTP) and Linux Operating System. At the end of this course, students will have the background needed to understand basic network and web security.
Students will learn firewall and proxy concepts to protect and monitor network traffic. In this part, we will see how we analyze traffic capture and how some sensitive protocol works like DNS (Domain Name System) and IPSEC.
This course presents the context of web applications. First, we will review the basic foundation of web protocols such as HTTPS and explore the most important vulnerabilities and how we exploit them. Students will learn the most common top 10 web application attacks based on OWASP. In this part, students will manipulate tools to simulate attacks.
This course allows sudents to understand the kill chain attack, a common method to achieve a successful attack. Students will manipulate tools to perform a vulnerability scan to identify how to weaponize the attack. Students will learn to investigate and evaluate logs with forensics to understand the attack and identify threats.
