- This seminar analyzes how to securely link to the Internet (or any TCP/IP network). Security vulnerabilities are identified, and the "hacks" used by cyberpunks are reviewed. Participants learn auditing techniques for discovering vulnerabilities and how to take corrective measures. Participants also learn about building and using security "firewalls" to screen systems from the rest of the network.
Seminar examples are based on VMS (including TCPware and MultiNet), UNIX/Linux, and NT(Win2K).
- Identify systems and network infrastructure components (e.g., routers) that are vulnerable to hacking.
- Understand how to secure most VMS, UNIX/Linux, and NT systems from popular network hacks.
- Understand how to apply and configure firewalls to protect networks from dangerous network traffic.
- Prerequisites for attendees:
- Must be familiar with the IP, ICMP, UDP, TCP and common application protocols (e.g., SMTP). Must be experienced with managing VMS, or UNIX/Linux, or NT systems.
- Required Skill Level:
Assumes general knowledge of topic, familiarity w/basic terms & procedures
