Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

explain operating systems architectures and their security mechanisms

identify and analyse prevalent security threats to hosts and applications

install, configure and secure important operating systems services

conduct penetration testing against a networked information system

design and verify plan to restore the system operation in case of a security breach.
