Genomsnitt: 1.32

- Good but a bit too technical.» (Yes)
- I mostly used the book to look up things but the index was bad so it was hard to find the topics i wondered about.» (Yes)
- Only have looked at a few chapters» (Yes)
- The book was very helpful for the cryptographic course and this has helped to understand the thinking in this course. So maybe not very useful for this course specific» (Yes)
- Pretty good book» (Yes)
- It is okey.» (Yes)
- It is good.» (Yes)
- The book is a good help for deepening some of the concepts seen in class» (Yes)
- The book is a bit confusing at some parts, like the WLAN and IPsec parts. It dives in to details about certain things (SAs in the IPsec) without actually describing in a good way why before. It gets very difficult to understand that detailed information without first gaining a broad overview of the topic.» (Yes)
- I have pdf version.» (No)
- The book is usually not needed and I prefer to use the lectures instead of reading.» (No)

10. What topics were most interesting in the course?

- Ways to ensure safe communication»
- Firewall configuration. Nmap Scanning. Intrusion prevision system. SSH/TLS lab.»
- Wireless encryption»
- Firewalls IDS»
- ids»
- Firewalls»
- attacks and defences»
- SSL, firewalls, ids & everything else»
- Topic related to real life,like authentication, certificate and how to prevent attacks»
- The differentialekvationer attacks»
- Different kind of attacks (you start to see a specific pattern and learn the principles).»
- Attacks vs Countermeasures in different layers»
- The topics we did in the labs»
- attacks»
- All the topics were very interesting.»
- Attacks, SSL/TLS.»
- NMAP scanning, firewalling, IDS»
- SSL, firewalls»
- I like almost all concepts. especially VPN, link level security, VLAN"s»
- Most topics were interesting! But most outstanding were: Firewalls, DoS and DDoS attacks, Network, Transport and Link-Level layer security.»

11. What topics were least interesting? Please try to explain why and what we should do with it.

- Seems that the cryptography part pumps too much.»
- DOS Attacks etc Stuff from Computer Security course which got repeated was not much interesting»
- kerberos»
- none»
- no at this moment»
- Nothing special, just different parts where like the same so they where more difficult/boring to study»
- the protocols" part, we have tried to detail to much even on a short time period»
- Authentication.»
- User authentication»
- Kerberos, because it is very common concept. I studied many times in many courses even in Chalmers. »
- Kerberos and IDS Systems. I guess it"s just because I found them more boring than the rest of the material.»

12. Did we spend unnecessary long time with some topics (should we reduce number of slides and/or increase speed next year)? Which?

- I did not like so much text. I understand, It was there for our info but when preparing for exams you tend to prepare everything and it was hard to cover all the lecture slides purely because of the number of slides per lecture and then the amounts of text.»
- nat»
- No.»
- I think the topic for different type of firewalls have too much slides, because some contends have already mentioned in other topics»
- No, very good slides and a good number of them too»
- Not for me»
- no»
- no»
- no. Everything is fine»
- WLAN security. Pretty much information there.»

13. What topics should we consider to extend next year? Is there another topic you would like to see in the course?

- More on labs. Some way to perform attacks in labs and then you will have to find out how to stop them»
- ipsec»
- no»
- More ddos describtions»
- Maybe Cloud and Smartphone security?»
- add more labs»
- the scheme of a network penetration test as the guest lecturer aimed to show»
- Maybe VPN»
- we can include Authentication of VTP messages between the Switches IPSEC in Enterprise level Authentication and possible threats to Routing Updates of Routing protocols IPv6 and how it overcomes the security issues of IPv4, etc... »

- I don"t know if the certificate lab actually provided any good knowledge. The firewall lab was really interesting! That lab gave me practical knowledge that I used on my own machine at home later, as well as it gave good knowledge of how a firewall actually operates.» (Good)
- Labs are very good.» (Excellent)
- Labs were awesome. Interesting and very helpful When trying to understand the subject » (Excellent)
- Good that they are "in real". Last year though.» (Excellent)

- Have not done that(?) re-read the course» (?)
- Doesn"t really add anything to the understanding of the course content. Mainly time-consuming.» (Fair)
- I know that the purpose of having it is good. But I tend to think it"s just more work for nothing with having it that way, and it just makes that lab more difficult to struggle with.» (Adequate)
- Good, however i would like to see a faster grading on the assignment.» (Good)
- Maybe should had been for labs 1,2,4.. More marterial to write about» (Good)

16. Any ideas of what can be done to improve the labs or the assignment?

- One formal report is not so sufficient. Maybe more lab reports but not so formal reported.»
- Increase the number of Labs»
- no written report»
- The labs/assignment was very nice but the report on assignment 2 felt like too much with the template, discussions was a better option.»
- Faster grading »
- just keep»
- No.»
- Above^»
- no»
- Maybe to the report about a chosen article (or topic) and have a short presentation for the class.»
- everything is fine»
- If you use a LaTeX template. Dont include all those packets. We tried to compile it on three different computers without success. It shouldn"t be necessary to have the exact same front page or table of content as long as the report is fine. [Edit]» (den här kommentaren har blivit redigerad i efterhand)

- One of the best courses I have attended on Chalmers! Tomas Olovsson knows what he is talking about and presents it in a good and understandable way.» (Excellent)
- I think it"s pretty much what I expected from it. Learned a lot of interesting stuff. Reall good!» (Excellent)

23. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Everything.»
- labs»
- The flow. I liked the idea to base lectures on layers. and base security on layers rather than just general security.»
- the labs»
- The slides»
- Labs»
- labs»
- attack parts»
- Lab 2: Firewalls»
- NIL»
- The teacher. The topics. The firewall and IDS labs.»

24. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Improve slides More interactive lectures would be better. Make student answer by asking them directly. One of the teacher in another study period did it and it was really great. You learn more when you know you have to go through last lecture because teacher may ask you "what did we study last time"»
- nothing special»
- I don"t know»
- NIL»
- Maybe the certificate lab can be made "funnier" for the students? The guest lecture were not very interesting. I had higher expectations of it. It felt that it turned out to only be some "show off" for him and it was pretty hard to follow what actually happened "under the hood" of all commands he entered.»
