Plan to teach the following
professional master program courses in fall 2008:
CSP 544: System and Network Security
CSP 545: Wireless
Networking Technologies and Applications.
The CSP 544 course presents an in-depth
examination of topics in data and network security such: Access
control, authentication, security assessment, network and data
security tools, and security policies. A significant hands-on
component includes network incidents to detect and fix.
This CSP 545 course
presents the foundation of wireless technologies and examine
state-of-the-art wireless systems and services, including
digital cellular systems (DCS, GSM, PCS), wireless asynchronous
transfer mode (ATM), infrared data transfer (IrDA), wireless
local area network technologies including 802.11b (wireless
Ethernet) and Bluetooth, WiMax, (802.16a), Femtocell, and
third-generation (3G) systems such as wireless code division
multiple access (W-CDMA/UMTS) and cdma2000. In addition,
security for wireless systems including encryption and
authentication issues will also be addressed (such as WAP -
Wireless Access Protocol).
