Secure Data Communications & Crypto

This course follows the protocol education provided in IAE-250 with a more detailed and practical look at secure transactions and correspondence, as well as protection of data in storage. Within the confines of the ISO-OSI model, this course discusses data communication with emphasis on the security available at the layers, secure sockets layer, and both wired and wireless security topics. One-way message digests/hashes and encryption history and protocols are explored in-depth. Topics include virtual private networks, one-way hashes/message digests, digital signatures, secret-key and public key cryptography processes and algorithms. Prerequisite: IAE-250 and CT-152 (3-0-3) NOTE: Students enrolled in this course incur an additional lab fee of $100.
