PhD THESIS ABSRACT


Security has always been a substantial problem for humankind throughout the history and at the same time it has also been a basic need. Defense and attack strategies have formed security policies which are underlying the war. The term of war has evolved over the ages and finally the concept of asymmetric warfare has emerged. Furthermore, developing communication utilities and spreading information technologies bring the information warfare to the agenda. In parallel with the development of defense strategies and as a result of human curiosity for the protected things, new attack strategies have been developed. Similarly, for the purposes of defense throughout history, encryption algorithms has been used for all communication channels. DNA algorithm and human reproduction logic as an encryption algorithm has been suggested for today’s fastest communication channels, the networks and the internet. Based on the simplest model of Communication, Shannon- Weaver Communication Model, the human reproduction logic designed as an algorithm for information systems.


MASTER THESIS ABSRACT


The level of technology that human being has been able to achieve so far is continuing to speed up also in the field of education. Advanced technology has given a distinctive dimension as well as a new perception to the concept of traditional education existed until now. This new conception caused governments to develop different methods in order to provide educational, cultural and social improvement of the individual and to create human potential required for a knowledge-based community. As a product of technology, the internet and the internet-based distant education, carried out by the internet have been started to apply to the education system of Turkey and the rest of the world as well, in different ways and by using different models. While reaching a wide mass of students, the internet-based education, at the same time, provides the possibility of addressing a wide mass both in the national and international level. This system of education will improve the collective problem-solving skills of people from different languages, religions and races; as well as, their ability of having a thought in all subjects and of free thinking.
