In recent years, email and website security has become an increasingly urgent issue due to the rise in cybercrime.
On this course, you will learn how to interpret the latest trends in email and web traffic security. Topics will include the easiest way to obtain certificates for your website or email server, how the setup works and how to choose the safest and optimal settings.
The course will be conducted by Jakob Schlyter who is an IT security advisor at Swedish Kirei, working with information security. Jakob has been actively involved in DNSSEC since 1999 and is one of the world's leading experts in the field. He also has broad experience in system and protocol design, IPv6 and encryption.
Content of the course
The course will focus on DANE (Domain-based Authentication of Named Entities), which is an extension of the security offered by DNSSEC. DANE includes encryption certificates for websites and email servers to increase users’ trust that the website they are visiting is really yours. DANE makes it harder for a potential hacker to imitate your website.
The course will also include:
- TLS configuration
- PKI: acquisition and monitoring of Let's Encrypt and how to restrict certificate issuance using CAA (Certification Authority Authorisation)
- A summary of current http security mechanisms
- Insight into other current technologies such as DMARC, DKIM and SPF
This course is for network engineers, system administrators and anyone involved in the management of DNS operations. The level is intermediate to advanced. The course is in English.
