This course serves as a platform for students to gain a solid understanding of the core aspects of cybersecurity. It presents an all-encompassing exploration of security, navigating from the intricate components of the Central Processing Unit (CPU) and kernel, through to userspace, network infrastructures, and cryptography, culminating in a detailed examination of both browser and HTTP server protocols. Each session will introduce a fresh topic, complemented by an assignment that facilitates hands-on exploration and comprehension of these fundamental cybersecurity concepts.
Computer and Network Forensics
This course discusses the identification, extraction, documentation, interpretation, and preservation of computer media for evidentiary purposes and/or root cause analysis. Topics include techniques for discovering digital evidence; responding to electronic incidents; tracking communications through networks; understanding electronic media, crypto-literacy, data hiding, and system forensics; and the role of forensics in the digital environment.
Engineering Blockchain Applications
This course ensures that learners will be well-versed in blockchain fundamentals. This is designed to put learners on the leading edge by presenting the abstract nature of blockchain technology and emphasizing its broad applicability. Topics include the mathematical and cryptographic underpinnings of the technology, as well as mining, consensus protocols, networking, and decentralized governance.
