Security architectures (Secure and resilient routing, secure DNS, secure channels, trusted network access, resilient architectures). Operational security management – how to design and manage reliable networks. Network monitoring and defence mechanisms (firewalls, IDS, netflow). Penetration testing. WiFi networks and security. (Wireless) personal area networks. Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN). Cryptographic aspects of WSN.
