Description:When is hacking legal? When you use it to secure your own network. This new method of hacking, called ethical hacking or white-hat hacking, uses common and readily available hacking tools and techniques to audit your network so you can locate and close security holes. Whether you're running a small home network or you're an enterprise network administrator, this course will teach you how to better protect your system against those who wish to gain unauthorized access. Sooner or later, you know that somebody is going to try and break into your network. Why not learn how hackers think so you can harden your defenses against them? Requirements: Completion of Debbie Mahler's online Introduction to PC Security course (or equivalent experience), or completion of David Iseminger's online Introduction to Networking course (or equivalent experience). You must be familiar with PC and networking terminology and have at least a basic knowledge of how networks function. You will also need access to one or more networked computers that do not contain any data you consider sensitive. You will also need Internet access, e-mail, and the Netscape or Firefox or Internet Explorer Web browser.
