In the beginning, there were no firewalls. And at the time, we "saw that it was good." But just as the change of a community from small town to city brings changes in lifestyle, particularly in personal and home security, the growth of the Internet has required changes in network security mechanisms and methods. We've moved from defensive solutions, to the need for enabling solutions. This course will give an overview of a multidimensional model for security, looking at three levels in three areas. We will explore the realms of security (prevention, detection, response), the steps in security management (planning, policy, and production), and the arenas of security deployment (perimeter, servers, and desktops).
