Purpose: This module focuses on the subject of computer security. Computer and information security has evolved as a field of research as well as a business practice in its own right. It is based on sound theoretical principles, namely those of Identification and Authentication, Authorisation, Confidentiality, Integrity and Non-repudiation. These principles form the basis of internationally accepted information security architectures. In this module our aim is to provide the student with sufficient knowledge to gain a thorough understanding of these. Students must have access to a suitable computer and access to the Internet for their research and practical work.
