Project title: Implementing a Secure Network Solution for Home and Organisational Use
This project was to display and provide an understanding of knowledge upon the infrastructure and backbone required to create a secure network in a cyber-secure manner within a home and organisational structure.
This project investigated network topologies within a home and organisational environment and provided a thorough understanding on security issues, vulnerabilities, network devices and their strengths and weaknesses, types of network attacks and prevention/eradication techniques and the ability to provide a fully secure implementation of a network.
Presently, the main issue faced by such networks are security vulnerabilities and attacks on a network from unknown sources, attacks are increasing, and the variation of attacks are changing with different types of penetration techniques that are able to exploit the network and the users data and information.
The purpose of the project was to test the security to locate exploits and to create a plan of how to overcome or eradicate them to create a secure network.
