Security techniques for communication networks

Really this sounds like a topic for comp science people, eh? Believe me, it is. The course had weekly lectures, two longer presentations (nearly 4 hours each) at some weekends, several multiple choice tests and two bigger submission tasks and finally a half hour of an oral exam.
