- Course objectives
- The aim of this subject is to understand details of biometric authentication systems and be able to apply the gained knowledge in practice. At the end of the course students also will be able to understand the principles of network security and identify weak points in networks.
- Biometric systems (error rates, keyboard typing, voice verification, face recognition, fingerprints and their security, calculation of error rates). Network security (eavesdropping, security of active network entities, IDS systems, vulnerability scanning, wireless networks). Security of operating systems (Windows, Linux, rootkits, viruses, web applications).
