Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.The course consists of a series of lectures and accompagning exercises and project(s). The teaching method can change depending on the circumstances and the number of participating students or for other reasons. Face-to-face classes as well as remote teaching or a mix of the two methods are possible.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the information in this section is particularly likely to change.Envisaged mode of evaluation:
- Projects (35% of the final mark)
- Exam (65% of the final mark)
- Class INGI2347 is an introductory to computer system and network security, while class INGI2144 is an advanced course on application security.
- LINGI2141 or eventually LELEC2920 : Background in computer networks
- LFSAB1402 : Basic knowledge in programming
- INFO2MS and SINF2MS students are both compliant with these prerequisites. Student who do not know if their background allows them the attend the course (e.g. students from ELEC, ELME or MAP) should contact the teaching assistant or lecturer.
- Weaknesses in network can be filled by reading the book "Computer Network" by Andew Tanenbaum. The most important topics that will be used in INGI2347 are: SMTP, Telnet, IP, TCP, ARP, MAC, OSI layered model.
