Database System: Chapter 11 - Database Security An Introduction presents about Introduction to Database Security Issues (DB security is a broad area, Threats to databases, Fundamental data security requirements), Discretionary Access Control, Mandatory Access Control.
Wireless security is the prevention of unauthorized access or damage to computers using wireless networks. The most common types of wireless security are Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA). WEP is one of the least secure forms of security.Many laptop computers have wireless cards pre-installed. The ability to enter a network while mobile has great benefits. However, wireless networking is prone to some security issues. Crackers have found wireless networks relatively easy to break into, and even use wireless technology to crack into wired networks......
"Network and system security" provides focused coverage of network and system security technologies. It explores practical solutions to a wide range of network and systems security issues. Chapters are authored by leading experts in the field and address the immediate and long-term challenges in the authors’ respective areas of expertise. Coverage includes building a secure organization, cryptography, system intrusion, UNIX and Linux security, Internet security, intranet security, LAN security; wireless network security, cellular network security, RFID security, and more.
Hello, in this module we are going to discuss wireless networking. Specifically, we'll take a look at
how wireless technology works, how it is commonly deployed, and the security issues associated
with using it. Because wireless communications can penetrate opaque objects such as buildings, the
risk of someone accessing a private network increases markedly. With wireless, an attacker does not
need to gain access to physical cables or jacks, but only needs to have an antenna and be within
range of the transmissions....
Bluetooth wireless technology is gradually becoming a popular way to replace
existing wireline connections with short-range wireless interconnectivity. It is
also an enabling technology for new types of applications. In this chapter we
give a short background and a condensed description of how the Bluetooth sys-
tem works. We will focus on details that directly or indirectly relate to security
issues and on the functionality that is important in order to understand the con-
cept of the technology. The reference documentation for Bluetooth wireless
technology is ....
Multicast and group security (Artech house computer security series) is a handbook for engineers, architects and other practitioners working in the field of Internet security. It presents detailed coverage of security technologies and techniques for IP (Internet protocol) multicast networks from the leading developer of the standards. It also examines important security issues relating to other group communication technologies. Algorithms and protocols for multi-party secure communication are included.
This book provides a thorough examination and analysis of cutting-edge research and security solutions in wireless and mobile networks. It begins with coverage of the basic security concepts and fundamentals which underpin and provide the knowledge necessary for understanding and evaluating security issues, challenges, and solutions. This material will be of invaluable use to all those working in the network security field, and especially to the many people entering the field.
There is an invisible elephant in this book: your application. And, it sits at the center of
every topic we touch in each chapter we present. This book is for systems architects
who are interested in building security into their applications. The book is designed to
be useful to architects in three ways: as an introduction to security architecture, as a
handbook on security issues for architecture review, and as a catalog of designs to look
for within a security product.
Trend Micro has taken the multilayered security approach to the next level of
sophistication with its Trend Micro Threat Management Services network security
Threat Management Services provides an additional security layer that greatly
strengthens an organization's security infrastructure by monitoring the network for
active infections that have successfully infiltrated. Once the threat discovery occurs,
in real time, the network overwatch layer intercepts the attack and performs
automated containment and remediation.
Reflecting cutting-edge advancements, Security of Self-Organizing Networks: MANET, WSN, WMN, VANET explores wireless network security from all angles. It begins with a review of fundamental security topics and often-used terms to set the foundation for the following chapters. Examining critical security issues in a range of wireless networks, the book proposes specific solutions to security threats.
Module 6 - Network and information security and privacy. In the Information Age, information is an asset to be protected and policymakers need to know what information security is and how to take action against information leakage and infringement. This module provides an overview of the need for information security, information security issues and trends, and the process of formulating an information security strategy.
After reading this chapter, you should be able to answer the following questions: What are the security threats to information systems? What controls exist to protect the systems? How do computers identify users? What alternative security measures need to be taken? What is encryption and how does it solve several problems? What specific security problems does the Internet create? Can there be privacy with computers and the Internet? What are the advantages and problems with anonymity?
We have all heard the saying "It’s what’s inside that counts" at some point in our lives. In the world of
networking Cisco’s Internetwork Operating Systems (IOS) has taken that saying to heart. The very
core of Cisco Systems phenomenal success is the breadth of services provided by the Cisco IOS
No two networks are exactly alike. There are connectivity requirements that differ between healthcare
and manufacturing, entertainment and shipping, finance and telecommunications. Each of which has
different security issues.
This book was written/compiled by The Hackers Layer Team as a document for the modern
hacker. We chose to call it the Hackers Layer Handbook because it mostly deals with Networking
Technologies and Windows95/ NT issues. Which, as everyone knows, is a must knowledge
these days. Well, The Hackers Layer, is the premiere Hacking/Cracking source, we have
continually given to the H/P/V/A/C community freely. We continue this tradition now with this
extremely useful book.
Internetworking security has become a very big issue in recent months.
Companies who went through corporate life thinking, “it will never happen
to me” suddenly found themselves the victim of some sort of attack on
their network. High profile companies are most certainly a bigger target for
several reasons, including the notoriety the hacker receives for damaging
their network or Web site, and the amount of financial damage that can be
done by bringing down a successful e-commerce site. Recent attacks easily
racked up 100 million dollars in damage....
Security has been a human concern since the dawn of time. With the rise of the digital society, information security has rapidly grown to an area of serious study and ongoing research. While much research has focused on the technical aspects of
computer security, far less attention has been given to the management issues of information risk and the economic concerns facing firms and nations.
