Sam Bowne CNIT-123 Ethical Hacking And Network Defense (1 dvd)
Students learn how hackers attack computers and networks, and how to protect systems from such attacks,
using both Windows and Linux systems. Students will learn legal restrictions and ethical guidelines,
and will be required to obey them. Students will perform many hands-on labs, both attacking and defending,
using port scans, footprinting, exploiting Windows and Linux vulnerabilities, buffer overflow exploits,
SQL injection, privilege escalation, Trojans, and backdoors.
Prerequisites: CNIT 106 and 120 or equivalent familiarity with the fundamentals of networking and security.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
