  • Access to a laptop or desktop computer
  • A modern web browser with Javascript enabled
  • A fast internet connection

The areas of hands-on lab activities include, but are not limited to:


  • basic systems and network services such as firewall, DNS, DHCP, Wireshark
  • digital forensics investigation with tools such as Encase, FTK, and Volatility Framework
  • network security related tools such as port scanning, Snort, and Metasploit, etc.

You will be assessed by answering questions and uploading results based on hands-on lab activities completed in the web-based virtual lab environment. Assessment questions are within the edX platform.
