Network security has been a critical challenge in recent years because government, military, companies, and individuals rely increasingly on computer networks, systems, and other connected devices to store, communicate, and exchange information. Organizations and individuals transmit sensitive information across communication networks in doing businesses and for other purposes. Network security describes the discipline dedicated to protecting the communication networks and the services from unauthorized modification, destruction, or disclosure. Network security provides assurance that the network performs its critical functions correctly, with no harmful side-effects. In this seminar, Prof. Yi Qian will share with the audience his experience over the last two decades teaching and research in Internet and wireless network security.
