Network Security and 4N6

Contract Number



Information technology and communication play an important role in our society. Hence securing these concepts is vital to our society. The concrete application would be adopted in the field of security, namely security threats and assets, forensics and fraud detection. Students in information technology with a background knowledge in operating systems and networking are the target audience. The main activities would be in the area of prevention, detection, and investigation. As ICT has a meaning of its own in each country it is important to compare the different views and perspectives. So the different approaches to security in the different countries will be compared in order to reach a consensus of what is a good working security practice. Using this consensus the students will work on a forensics case and in this process they will discuss and set the limits of what is ethical; which can be quite different depending on the student’s cultural background. The IP will create new teaching material in the field of computer security. The teaching material will be published and delivered to the participants. The IP will take place between 4-16 May 2009 at the partner institution of University College of Engineering (Spain). As an expected output the students should be able to use and report on the consensus working practice. On the condition to fully participate to the IP, the students will get 3 ECTS, and this can also be graded upon the consideration of each partner by taking into account the assessment results done by the participating lecturers and students.
