Security of e-Systems and Computer Networks

e-Based systems and computer networks are ubiquitous in the modern world, with applications spanning e-commerce, WLANS, healthcare and governmental organizations, among others. The secure transfer of information has therefore become a critical area of research, development, and investment. This course presents the fundamental concepts, tools, and protocols of security of e-based systems and computer networks and its wide range of applications.

Professor Dr. Mohammad S. Obaidat, Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering, Monmouth University


The core areas of security of e-systems and computer networks such as authentication of users; system integrity; confidentiality of communication; availability of business service; and non-repudiation of transactions –are covered in detail. Throughout the course the major trends, challenges, and applications of e-security are presented, with emphasis on public key infrastructure (PKI) systems, biometric-based security systems, trust management systems, and the e-service paradigm. Intrusion detection technologies, virtual private networks (VPNs), malware, WLANs security, and risk management are also discussed. Moreover, applications such as e-commerce, e-government, and e-service are all dealt with.

Technically oriented with many practical examples, this course is invaluable to researchers and graduate students in electrical and computer engineering, telecommunication engineering, computer science, informatics, and system and software engineering.  It will also be of great interest to practitioners in network and information security. The application of the related techniques will be demonstrated by case studies and examples.
