Learning outcomes

The course has three goals: to provide the knowledge is socket programming and network application design; to introduce to the configuration and the management of network systems (access points, routers, NATs); to provide an overview of the basic concepts related to system and network security.

Syllabus

TCP/UDP sockets in C and Java, multithread sockets; web services (WSDL, SOAP, REST); design of client-server and peer-to-peer applications.
Network analysis tools (Wireshark, traceroute, ping); configuration and management of routers and routing protocols, addressing and subnetting, IP services (access control lists, DHCP, NAT), and switching (VLAN, Spanning Tree).
Introduction to system and network security, cryptography, message integrity; data link security (wireless LAN), IP security (IPsec), transport layer security (SSL) and application layer security (PGP); operational security (firewall and intrusion detection).

Prerequisites: Computer Networks, Programming II.
Must-have: Programming I.

Assessment methods and criteria

Written examination with theoretical questions, code writing, exercises according to the content of lessons and laboratory sessions. Eventually, an oral examination can be required either by the student to improve evaluation or by the teachers for clarification.
