The Courses are offered as optional Topics for last-year students in the "Laurea Magistralis" degree (currently for Electronic Engineers), as well as PhD students in Computer Science and Electronics.
Teaching schedules involve massive contributions by high-skilled members of Elsag staff, who drive lab activities and highlight network management and security issues from an industry-related, market-driven professional perspective.

AMTEC SECURTEAM equipment.
Students will learn how to configure and use :
|SSL, VPN and SecureVPN technologies to securely drive information|
|Firewall and IDS capabilities|
|host security practice: vulnerability assessment, hardening, access control|
The Course enables proficient attendees to qualify for "Certification in Network Management" issued by Elsag Datamat, which requires candidates to undergo an additional test session. Such a session should not require extra study work, is aimed at professional purposes and is optional, hence it is not a part of the official Course program.
