CASP, Part 2 of 9: Network Security

with David Bigger

Addressing for computer communications can seem overwhelming, but this course will give you an overview of IP and MAC addressing to help make the process more approachable. We will examine the source and destination addresses for network frames and packets, and discuss TCP and UDP to understand how reliable these protocols may or may not be in different circumstances. In addition, network security, such as secure design practices and secure communications, will be discussed as well as firewalls, DMZs, network access control and more. Finally, we’ll look at online security using SSL and TLS and Domain Naming Services, or DNS. This course is part of a series covering the CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP).
