This course aims to present advanced approaches for network intrusion detection and prevention. It emphasizes on used tools for enumeration, intrusion and defense techniques. The objective is to provide theoretical and practical experiences in network security, intrusion detection, and network auditing to understand the impact of vulnerability, and the utility of the existing hardening methods on the security of the system.


  • Basic notions : Footprinting, Scanning, Enumeration
  • The 5 steps of successful attack
  • MITM attack. (Lab : ARP poisoning, ETTERCAP, DSSNIFF, SSLSTRIP)
