Helps College Students Understand the Interactions Between Computing/Networking Technologies and Security Issues [Guides College Students in Understanding Computing/Networking Technologies and Security Issues]
adopting a teaching method that encourages students to participate and “learn by doing” An Introduction to the Protection of Computers and Networks: You will have a clear path to teach the technical difficulties that are associated with security if you use Navigating Shades of Gray. This textbook investigates, in addition to the topics often covered in books on computer security, such as software design and implementation, cryptographic tools, or networking concerns, the ways in which software, hardware, and people interact with one another to influence system security.
The e-book explains fundamental ideas and concepts and provides illustrations of how these ideas might either enable or prevent exploits through the use of real-world instances of current dangers. Students understand the significance of these ideas in both current and upcoming technological developments. They are exposed to a wide range of technical subjects in a manner that is both stimulating and enjoyable. These subjects include current security exploits, technological variables that make assaults possible, and economic and social issues that dictate the security of future systems.
The material has been tried and tested in numerous educational settings, and it centers on a series of demanding projects. Students get the following knowledge and skills through the process of staging exploits and selecting countermeasures to neutralize the assaults in the projects:
- How to perform backwards engineering on processes
- The inner workings of computer systems and networks.
- How to use systems in ways that were never envisioned (or supported) by the people who created them in the first place
This text guides you through the process of incorporating security analysis into the rest of your technical computing education by combining hands-on work with technical overviews. Your pupils will have a deeper comprehension of how computers and networks operate, as well as a better knowledge of security concerns such as side-channel attacks as a result of this education.
