Introduction1.1 OverviewThe aim of this module is to build on the network design and implementationprinciples from module CT5047. The objective is to defend and protect thenetwork infrastructure, architecture, protocols and applications in order to deliversecured protocols, applications, services and data. The cyber security frameworkof identifying, protecting, detecting, responding and recovery in relation tonetwork security will be evaluated and critically analysed during the module.Students will be capable of analysing, designing and managing the requirementsof a secure network architecture based on risk analysis and operationalrequirements in accordance with regulations and standards.1.2 PrerequisitesBasic understanding of networking is crucial for this module. Students areadvised to make sure they review the content of CT5047 before starting thismodule in case they are not confident with their knowledge in networking.1.3 Reading ListThe resources needed for this module are available via the University’s DigitalLibrary, and are as follows:• Randy Weaver (2013). Guide to Network Defense and Countermeasures.3rd edition. Boston: Thomson Course Technology.CT6034: Advanced Networking and Security© Hassan Chizari, University of Gloucestershire 2• Chris Sanders (2011). Practical Packet Analysis. 2nd edition. SanFrancisco: No Starch Press.• Roberto Verdone (2008), Wireless sensor and actuator networks :technologies, analysis and design• Matthijs Kooijman (2015), Building wireless sensor networks usingArduino : leverage the powerful Arduino and XBee platforms to monitorand control your surroundings2. Learning OutcomesA student passing this module should be able to:1. Critically analyse and evaluate risk analysis and management strategiesto address the associated risks, threats, vulnerabilities and attack vectorsagainst network architectures to secure the operational and servicedelivery requirements;2. Critically evaluate the organisational security requirements for a networksecurity solution against known regulations, standards, legislation, policiesand procedures to develop a systematic solution to the network andorganisational security requirements;3. Demonstrate the ability to understand and synthesize the principles ofnetwork security architectures and security frameworks and models;4. Critically analyse and evaluate network security controls and mitigationtechniques: network monitoring, firewalls and traffic filtering, intrusiondetection and prevention systems, intrusion analysis, anti-malware,cryptography, securing network protocols, services, applications and datato mitigate the identified risks of the evaluated system;5. Analyse a number of advanced networking topics and future networkingdirection;6. Critically evaluate and communicate network security alternativesarguments, assumptions, abstract concepts and data to make judgments,and to frame appropriate questions to achieve a solution – or identify arange of solutions – to a given problem, to both technical and nontechnical stakeholders.CT6034: Advanced Networking and Security© Hassan Chizari, University of Gloucestershire 33. Module Evaluation3.1 Evaluation for 2019-20We have received quite interesting reviews about this module. Students lovedthe idea of being exposed to advanced networking topics, including SDN, IDSand WSN. They used a wide range of simulations and tools to do theassignment. Some of the students decided to do their dissertation based on thetools they learnt and used in this module, which shows how much they found themodule interesting and practical. Some of the students requested for developingdedicated labs with actual hardware for this module, which we are currentlyconsidering it.In this current academic year 2020/21, you will be given the opportunity toundertake a mid-module evaluation. This will contribute to the course board ofstudies meeting and will inform the module design for the following year. Inaddition, there will be an independent end of year level evaluation distributed bythe University known as the Annual Course Evaluation (ACE).CT6034: Advanced Networking and Security© Hassan Chizari, University of Gloucestershire 44.

The requirements for assessment 2:1) You need to select a dataset (or more) of PCAPS with the confirmation of themodule tutor for your assignment and analysis. You may use following resources,but you are free to choose from other sources as well.https://www.netresec.com/?page=pcapfileshttps://github.com/shramos/Awesome-Cybersecurity-Datasets2) Provide a schematic of how the attack has happened looking at differentlayers. Investigate what were the vulnerabilities which led to a successful attack.You need to provide evidences for your claims from the datasets and also youcan refer to literature to support your findings.3) Make sure you include your methodology of investigation with justification ofwhy you use these methods. Explain the rationale behind your choices ofmethods to analyse the dataset.4) Finally, provide discussion about your results and findings. You need to showyou understand how the attack happened and what could be done to prevent /mitigate the attack.Your assignment should follow this structure (3000 words):A) Introduction (a short literature review on the related topics and attacks,the selected dataset and selected methodology of investigation)B) Analysis (the actual process of analysis and numerical results, all thesteps which have been done in the process of analysing the dataset)C) Discussion (the explanation of the results, how to address thosevulnerabilities, or how the attack could be enhanced or be more efficient)D) ConclusionE) BibliographyF) Appendices (if you use any code, you need to include it here, alsoscreenshots of the tools that you used during analysis)11.
