The CyberTraining Faculty program is offered to post-docs, research scientists, and faculty researchers and educators from 2-year and 4-year colleges in the North Central Region. The program will offer online summer courses to help faculty develop expertise in cybersecurity. The program also includes funds to help participating faculty host cybersecurity workshops on their campuses and develop new courses in cybersecurity. These summer courses are free to all faculty participants! We are now accepting applications participating in CyberTraining Faculty Program for Summer 2019. Please follow the steps below to register cybersecurity courses for Summer 2019.
Cybersecurity Courses for Summer 2019
There will be three cybersecurity courses offered at DSU for the CyberTraining Faculty program in Summer 2019. These three cybersecurity courses include:
INFA792 Special Topic Cryptography and Network Security (Instructor: Dr. Yong Wang): This course covers both the principles and practice of cryptography and network security. In the first part of the class, fundamentals of cryptography and its applications, classical and contemporary ciphers, encryption and decryption will be addressed. In the second part of the class, we will focus on network security and provide a holistic view of security issues in communication networks including transport layer security protocols and key management protocols. Along the way, cryptography applications, protocols, libraries, and automated tools are also examined. [course syllabus can be found at https://goo.gl/sMFK2T]
INFA792 Special Topic Offensive Security (Instructor: Dr. Josh Stroschein): This course provides theoretical and practical aspects of network and web application penetration testing. The course includes in-depth details and hands-on labs for each phase of an ethical hack including, but not limited to: reconnaissance, vulnerability assessment, exploitation, maintaining access, and covering tracks. An applied approach with a focus on current tools and methodologies will be stressed. [course syllabus can be found at https://goo.gl/Z98tEB]
CSC492 Special Topic Reverse Engineering (Instructor: Andrew Kramer): This course will cover the fundamentals of reverse engineering using several industry standard tools to analyze a variety compiled software programs. Topics will also include a study of anti-analysis techniques and how to bypass them, as well as a brief introduction to software vulnerability analysis and exploitation.
