 Cryptography and Network Security
This course provides a broad introduction to a variety of topics in applied cryptography, network security and malwares. It is possible to divide this course into three parts. In the first part which is cryptography, we will cover number theory, symmetric and Asymmetric Cryptography, and other fundamental cryptographic constructs. Second part namely network security covers underlying concepts and foundations of computer network security, from basic knowledge about security to complex secure techniques. Third and last part is focusing on Viruses, malwares, intruders and firewalls.
