About this course

Skip About this course

The aim of this course is to equip learners with advanced skills in the fields of security and cybersecurity and make you industry ready.

You will learn about SDN Access Security. We will begin with the core security and privacy issues relevant to conventional IP networking, and explain how SDN can handle security and privacy issues for modern enterprise and data centre networks.

The course has been designed with a practical, hands-on approach to help learners obtain a better understanding of new threat vectors for SDN Architecture. We will also explore recent developments in industry-specific Zero-Trust networking.

The course has been designed by an academic team with extensive teaching experience and a successful track record of delivering high quality MOOC courses, including the MicroMasters in The Internet of Things, in which over a quarter of a million edX learners have enrolled.

Who can take this course?

Unfortunately, learners residing in one or more of the following countries or regions will not be able to register for this course: Iran, Cuba and the Crimea region of Ukraine. While edX has sought licenses from the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) to offer our courses to learners in these countries and regions, the licenses we have received are not broad enough to allow us to offer this course in all locations. edX truly regrets that U.S. sanctions prevent us from offering all of our courses to everyone, no matter where they live.
