Information technology security is a broad field. This course focuses on the foundational technologies that build the Web-based Internet (Web) as we know it today. The goal of this course is to guide the learner to adopt a professional security mindset by applying the techniques of threat modeling, risk assessment, and apply the foundational security principles from the two “triad” models: “confidentiality, integrity, and availability” (CIA) and “authentication, authorization, and accounting” (AAA). The self-motivated learner will investigate vulnerabilities, threats, and mitigations with the objective of protecting the data, applications, frameworks, and the supporting complex technology stacks. Security at this level cannot be achieved by technology alone, the course will provide an opportunity to exercise a smart combination of methodologies and techniques that can build confidence and rapport to champion web security within their IT community. Applicable cryptology, digital certificates, and Public Key Infrastructure will be reviewed. Each module will involve hands-on labs that implement local virtual machines, containers, cloud computing environments, and an operative blockchain enabling the learner to probe more deeply into the cybersecurity challenge of each technology solution. The assignments will involve programming and system configuration thus a novice-level exposure of Python, PHP, JavaScript, Linux Commands, basic Internet architecture and common protocols is recommended. Prerequisite(s): 605.202 Data Structures
