Course Description

Information security covers broad fields, from the cryptography to practice information networks or systems. In this course, we aim at systematically understanding the way to deal with security problems which may happen in practical information systems, from basic.

This course relates to the diploma policy 1 of the division of the integrated science and engineering, graduated school of Teikyo University.

Course Objectives

The goal of this course is that students master the following abilities;

Students can explain how to prevent from unauthorized accesses, and show basic countermeasures against unauthorized accesses.
Students can explain how to protect Web-applications, and show basic countermeasures against attack to the Web-applications.
Students can explain the operation principles of malware, and show basic countermeasures against malware.
Students can explain the operation principles of intrusion detection/protection systems(IDS/IPS) and, how to introduce IDS/IPS.
Students can show basic access control techniques and choose appropriate ones according to the situation.
Students can explain information security protocols.
Students can explain foundations of constructing/operating information systems.
Students can show outlines basics of Information Management Systems.
Students can explain new trends in information security technology.
Students can explain and write basic cyber-security programmings.

Grading Policy

Grading policy: Mid-term report(50%), Final-report(50%)

The way of feedback;
