Internet Security (Lecture, SoSe 2014)

As the common utilization of the Internet broadens, the threat from malicious programs and users increases. To counteract this development during the design of new applications and technologies, we will try to identify and discuss the different attacks and threats (e.g., worms, viruses, denial of service). Based on that countermeasures (e.g., firewalls, network intrusion detection/prevention systems, scanners) are introduced and the challenges those are facing are explained. In addition to these active security tools, secure protocols (e.g., SSL, Kerberos, TLS, VPN, IPsec, WLAN Security), key management approaches, and the security of different Internet services (e.g., E-Mail, SSH, VoIP, Network Storage) will be analysed.


Some slides can only be found on ISIS.
