The students will gain theoretical and practical experience with technologies and systems for detection of intrusions in large-scale high-speed networks. They will also learn basic concepts of statistical modeling of communication protocols. Students will also gain basic theoretical and practical skills required to perform realistic simulations of computer networks. They will also be introduced to basic psychological aspects of network security and the role of the human factor in attacks on information systems.
