The Faculty: Communication networks are an exciting area that is developing very rapidly and getting a lot of attention from scientists and the academic community. However, what is more important is the fact that private companies and private/public institutions give an enormous importance to their computer network infrastructure, due to the reason that today nothing can be done without data communication. Consequently, any communication network should have security mechanisms that ensure protection against data theft, data loss, information leak and any kind of intrusion that aims at breaking through and tampering with confidential and copyrighted material.
