Module 6 (Communications Security)

Module six (Communications Security) is intended to be included in an undergraduate course on data communications and networking for information systems and business majors. Several perspectives could be chosen as the basis for this module: an example might be, a detailed technical perspective for students who are interested in designing data communication systems and networks.

However, this module is written from a management perspective for those students who want to become intelligent users of such systems or those who aspire to a management role in an organization that relies on data communications systems or networks to interconnect elements of its information processing systems, either internally or externally.

The module is designed to be added to an existing data communications course, or it could be added to a course in office automation. If the institution is using the DPMA Model Curriculum for undergraduate Computer Information Systems, then it could be added to CIS/86-15, (Distributed Intelligence and Communication Systems).
