Smart homes are intelligent environments that interact dynamically and respond readily in an adaptive manner to the needs of the occupants and changes in the ambient conditions. The realization of systems that support the smart homes concept requires integration of technologies from different fields. Among the challenges that the designers face is to make all the components of the system interact in a seamless, reliable and secure manner.
In the early morning hours of Saturday, August 17, 1996, a computer system at the U.S. Department of
Justice was attacked. The target of the attack was the Department of Justice's web server, www.usdoj.gov.
The attackers compromised the server's security and modified its home page - adding swastikas, obscene
pictures, and a diatribe against the Communications Decency Act (which, ironically, had recently been
declared unconstitutional by a federal court in Philadelphia).
As I wrote this introduction, word of an e-mail virus was breaking in the news. As I sat to edit it, yet another virus had been found and was being fought. These viruses can take down major e-mail systems, disrupt communications, and destroy data. Worst of all, the viruses spread fast and easily through our networks, yet this is nothing new. Several e-mail viruses have surfaced prior to these, and many more are sure to follow. So how can they still be a threat? Why hasn't someone done something to stop them? The main reason is easy to see: most...

Once your computer is connected to the internet, it’s also connected to millions of other
connected computers, which could, in turn, allow attackers to connect to your computer.
Information flows from the internet to your home network by first coming into your modem,
then to your router, which most people have, and finally to your computer. Because your modem
doesn’t have security settings, it’s crucial to secure your router—the first securable device that
receives information from the internet.
A firewall is a device that controls the flow of information between your computer and the
internet, similar to a router. Most modern operating systems include a software firewall. In
addition to the operating system’s firewall, the majority of home routers have a firewall built in.
Refer to your user’s guide for instructions on how to enable your firewall. Once your firewall is
enabled, consult the user’s guide to learn how to configure the security settings and set a strong
password to protect it against unwanted changes. ...
Risk management is the process that allows IT managers to balance the operational and economic costs of protective measures and achieve gains in mission capability by protecting the IT systems and data that support their organizations’ missions. This process is not unique to the IT environment; indeed it pervades decision-making in all areas of our daily lives. Take the case of home security, for example. Many people decide to have home security systems installed and pay a monthly fee to a service provider to have these systems monitored for the better protection of their property.
This question has been foremost in my mind since the onset of this project, as my goal is to
compile and offer the right information for the right audience. While architecting and deploying
OpenSSH implementations for Fortune 100 enterprises and home networks alike, I have referred
to SSH resources both online and in print, and I came to the conclusion that most information
on the topic is scattered, disorganized, or pretty dated. This presents a problem to most overworked
Security is a significant concern for any organization. If the organization has to have
a presence on or a connection to the Internet, it will also have special needs to protect
itself from unwanted intrusion and attacks from malicious and hostile sources.
The growth of the Internet has been accompanied by the growth in the numbers
and sophistication of hackers and the tools available to them. As many organizations
and home users who have a permanent connection to the Internet can attest, there is
no shortage of people who want to scan ports or break into systems.
The concern I want to raise in this chapter is related to the relationship between indigenous
identities, knowledge systems and indigenous values and world views compared to world
views found in South Africa’s new curricula after new dispensation. What are the values the
indigenous pupils meet at home? Do they concur with those of the new curricula after 1994?
The rationale for this focus is related to the question of whether the South African primary
school is ‘their school’, i.e the school for the majority of South African children in terms of
culture and knowledge....

One of the most important things in life is having a place where we really feel at home. It makes no difference whether it we own it or rent it or whether it is an apartment or a house: what matters is the sense of security and wellbeing we feel within its walls. The right lighting concept plays a crucial role here. Science defines light as the band of electromagnetic radiation that is perceptible by the human eye. The designer sees it as a tool offering innumerable possibilities for crafting living space to suit personal needs and preferences....
Wireless technology has enormous potential to change the way people and things communicate. Future wireless networks will allow people on the move to communicate with anyone, anywhere, and at any time using a range of high-performance multimedia services. Wireless video will support applications such as enhanced social networking, distance learning and remote medicine. Wireless sensor networks can also enable a new class of intelligent home electronics, smart and energy-efficient buildings and highways, and in-body networks for analysis and treatment of medical conditions....
The global.properties and responses.properties files, both found under $VCLOUD _ HOME/etc, are
critical files that contain sensitive information. The responses.properties file contains responses provided by the
administrator when running the configuration script. That file contains an encrypted version of the Oracle
database password and system KeyStore passwords. Unauthorized access to that file could give an attacker
access to the VMware vCloud Director database with the same permissions as the Oracle user specified in the
configuration script. The global.
