Information Assurance
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.


Mobile Computing
Mobile networking, mobile information access, adaptive applications, energy-aware systems, location-aware computing, mobile security and privacy.


Information Assurance and Security
This course will provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the problems of information assurance (IA) and security, and possible solutions to these problems, especially the security of information systems and operating environments. This course will also focus on IA technology as well as IA policy, management, legal and ethical issues.


Advanced Computer Network Security
Comprehensive understanding of network security and corresponding solutions, including cryptography, access control, secure Web transactions, e-mail security, and viruses.


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.

ASU 101
