Synopsis:

The course gives a professional and academic introduction to computer and information security using the ethical hacking approach, which enables improved defence thanks to adopting an attacker mindset when discovering vulnerabilities, hands-on experience with different attacks, facilitates linking theory and practice in significant areas of one's digital literacy, and can therefore be utilized by (future) security professionals, (informed) decision-makers, (savvy) users and developers alike.

12. RESERVE: very likely needed because of guest lectures /workshops /trips 'into the field' /holidays /...

Disclaimer: In spite of the fact that we'll try to fit our sessions' continuity with a typical sequence of steps in a penetration test (pentest-standard.org), the content of the course and the order of its sections /teaching blocks might be subject to change based on pace, level of proficiency, and other requirements of the course group.

Syllabus of tutorials:

Lectures are intertwined with exercises /tutorials.

Study Objective:

Upon completion of the course, the students will:

* be introduced to (both theory and practice of) common computer and information security vulnerabilities in their interdisciplinary nature

* be able to perform basic penetration testing tasks (as defined by pentest-standard.org) using software tools and their own program code

* understand the broader context of cybersecurity (macro level), the wide range of related topics for further self-driven education and/or professional /academic specialization, and become savvier ICT users and developers (micro level)

* perceive ethical hacking as a 'problem-discovery' and 'problem-solving' tool (as opposed to 'problem-creating' tool)
