Course 2: Computer Networks

Duration: 1 Week
In this one week Computer Networks module, in order to understand how a cyber-attack happened in the network, one must have a solid understanding of computer networks – protocols, services, architecture, and tools.
In this module, the participants will gain a deep understanding of data communication principles:
  • The OSI and TCP/IP layers models (incl. each of the layers)
  • Routing 
  • How signals are used to transfer data between nodes
  • Internet communication 
  • Packets’ structure routing
  • Chosen network protocols (see the content below)
  • How to capture, filter, and analyse traffic using Wireshark (incl. inferring a network layout based on captures)
In addition to gaining practical experience with useful network tools, participants will learn how to develop their own tools to generate traffic and collect data by using Python and Scapy.

Subjects covered:   

  • Introduction to Networking
  • Five and Seven Layers Model
  • Scapy
  • Data Link and Ethernet
  • Network layer and IP
  • Transportation layer – UDP and TCP
