  • security architectures in operating systems and antivirus technologies,
  • common terms in ethical hacking: vulnerability, exploit, payload, zero-day, penetration testing methodology,
  • how to use vulnerability scanner and exploit common vulnerabilities, perform online and offline password attacks,
  • how to analyze working and non-working operation systems,
  • what are the artifacts that can be examined and how digital forensic evidence can be sought,
  • common errors in programming that lead to security vulnerabilities
  • the importance of proper software design to maintain integrity and immunity to security attacks

Have the ability to:

  • use tools for penetration testing, digital forensic and malware analysis,
  • perform static and dynamic analysis of Windows/Android malware,
