This noncredit professional development course will equip you with in-demand, practical network operations and cybersecurity skills.

Course topics include:
Hands-on labs include: Setting IP addresses, subnet masks and gateways; using Wireshark; launching simulated DoS and DDoS attacks; port scanning attacks; using network mapping tools; configuring firewalls; allowing and blocking traffic; network monitoring with TCPdump, IPtraf, and P0f; network vulnerability analysis with OpenVas; using intrusion detection tools such as Snort.
