About this Assignment

This course requires you to complete eleven interactive virtual InfoSec Learning Labs, which will contribute to your final grade. These labs will provide you the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills you've learned in this course by applying them in a realistic environment.


You will complete each InfoSec Lab in your web browser and they will take between 90 to 120 minutes.

See below for the required labs and their corresponding points:

Identifying & Analyzing Network Host Intrusion Detection System Alerts
TCP/IP Protocols - The Core Protocols
Network Management
Closing Ports and Unnecessary Services
Network Security - Firewalls
Stateful Firewall
Intrusion Detection Using Snort
Configuring RADIUS
Domain Security
Closing Security Holes
Incident Response - Pentesting

How Your Labs Will be Graded

The total number of possible points you can earn toward your overall course score from these virtual labs is 20 points.

Throughout each virtual lab, you will be asked questions and required to complete actions to finish the simulation you'll be presented with. At the end of each simulation, you'll receive a score based on how well you did. Once you've completed all eleven virtual labs, your percentage scores will be averaged together and weighed against the total possible points for lab experiments. For instance, if the average of all your percentage scores is 90%, then you'll receive 18 out of 20 possible points for the virtual lab requirement in this course.
