Information Security Notes
Topics in our Information Security Notes PDF
In these “Information Security Notes PDF”, you will study the overview of the fundamentals of information security covering topics such as error correction/detection, cryptography, steganography, malwares, This course also touches on the implications of security in Internet of Things (IoT).
The topics we will cover will be taken from the following list:
Introduction: Security Concepts, Challenges, Security architecture, Security attacks, security services, security mechanisms.
Error detecting/correction: Block Codes, Generator Matrix, Parity Check Matrix, Minimum distance of a Code, Error detection and correction, Standard Array and syndrome decoding, Hamming Codes.
Cryptography: Encryption, Decryption, Substitution and Transposition, Confusion and diffusion, Symmetric and Asymmetric encryption, Stream and Block ciphers, DES, cryptanalysis. Public-key cryptography, Diffie-Hellman key exchange, man-in-the-middle attack Digital signature, Steganography, Watermarking.
Malicious software’s: Types of malwares (viruses, worms, trojan horse, rootkits, bots), Memory exploits – Buffer overflow, Integer overflow.
Security in Internet-of-Things: Security implications, Mobile device security – threats and strategies.
