Faculty Academic Enrichment
Stetson University's distinguished faculty represents a wide variety of expertise. Many Stetson professors teach special classes designed for high ability students that enjoy the breadth and depth of study afforded by these classes. These courses present an opportunity for students to investigate new fields of study, work with an expert, and collaborate with like-minded students. Topics vary widely and include languages, science, and computer topics.
Cyber security is one of the fastest-growing fields of computer science. Cyber threats, cyber warfare, state-sponsored hacking, phishing and ransomware are mentioned in mainstream media virtually every day and potentially threaten our personal, corporate and national security and way of life.
During the 2020 course, students will cycle among "white hat" and "black hat" hacking roles in order to understand both perspectives: those that defend against attacks and those that perform attacks. Students will practice initiating and defending against a variety of common attacks: denial of service, phishing, password cracking, man-in-the-middle interception, and penetration testing and exploitation. Various fundamental programming techniques such as conditionals, loops, functions, arrays and network programming will be taught in the Python language in order to develop automated attacks and defense strategies.
This class will be held June 22-26, 2020, and a detailed schedule will be provided here as well.
