This course will give a basic introduction to Communication Technology and Information Security in the context of Smart Grid. The course consists of two parts with the following academic content: 1. Communication Technology: Communication networks and services, Internet, mobile networks, TCP/IP and layering. 2. Information Security: Basic principles. Encryption. Vulnerabilities and risk. Technological, human and organizational perspectives.
A. Knowledge: The students should 1) Understand the most fundamental concepts, principles and technologies underlying computer communication networks and services, including the overall architecture of the Internet, principles of network based services, principles of switching techniques, security mechanisms, functionality and basic protocols of the five network protocol layers. 2) Have a basic understanding of risk factors, threats and countermeasures to achieve information security. B. Skills: The students should 1) Be able to reason and discuss about the architectures, principles and technologies in the design and implementation of computer communication networks and services. 2) Be able to explain how and why the basic protocols of the five network layers work. 3) Be able to reason and discuss information security at a fundamental level and evaluate risk for communication systems.
Learning methods and activities
Lectures and laboratory exercises.
- Laboratory exercises
Further on evaluation
A number of compulsory laboratory exercises must be completed and approved to qualify for the final exam. If there is a re-sit examination, the examination form may be changed from written to oral. If a student wants to repeat the course, approved laboratory exercises older than two years must be repeated to qualify for the final exam, regardless regardless whether the student has passed the course earlier or not. Approved laboratory exercises from the previous two years will normally be accepted. However, this should be clarified with the course responsible early in the semester.
Compulsory activities from previous semester may be approved by the department.
