I'm a long time lurker on this list (I may have two or three posts to my
credit) who is about to embark on a taught MSc course at LIT shortly.
My degree (just completed) is in Software Development (also with LIT)
and the MSc is in Computing - Security and Digital Forensics.
All/Most of my studies have been based on Windoze technologies (I have
just 'dabbled' with SUSE Linux for a couple of years, desktop and LAMP)
but I am wondering if any of you have opinions/experience/ideas on
whether I would be sticking my neck out to try and tackle an MSc project
on some aspect of a Linux based security issue. Basically, would I need
to have been working with Linux longer and more seriously to consider
this. If not, would any of you care to offer any suggestions on useful
topics for consideration.
The course modules include Security and Cryptography, Data Comms and
Network Technologies, Digital Forensics and Computer Crime, Enterprise
Technology Mgmt and finally the Project.
Thanks in advance for your time
