  • Hardware firewalls are important because they provide a strong degree of protection from most forms of attack coming from the outside world. compared to a set of predefined and/or user-created rules that determine whether the packet is to be forwarded or dropped . Consider this scenario: What would happen if you received an e-mail message or visited a website that contained a concealed program? Let's say this program was designed to install itself on your machine and then surreptitiously communicate with someone via the Internet — a distributed denial of service ( DDoS ) attack zombie or a keystroke logger, for example? And trust me, this is by no means an unlikely scenario.
  • Discovery Network sniffer: Documents the discovery of the target IP address and any other useful information, such as protocols being used on the target network Traceroute: Attempts to locate the target device and all intermediate routers, switches, and system Penetration Synflood attack: Used to see whether the firewall can overcome a repeated open connection request and also log the attack Garbage attack: Used to see whether the firewall can overcome random data packets on random ports UDP Ping: Used to see whether the firewall can overcome a large UDP ping packet sent to it TCP Ping: Used to see whether the firewall can overcome a large TCP ping packet sent to it Ping of death:Used to see whether the firewall can overcome a single over-sized packet sent to it

        • Well-known ports (0-1023)
          • HTTP=80, Telnet=23, FTP=21 for supervision, 20 for data transfer, SMTP=25
        • Allows applications to be accessed by the root user

        • Tracert and applications similar identifies all routers along the route to a destination host
      Attack Methods (Cont.) Trish Miller
    • 16.
      • Port Scanning
        • Once a host is identified, scan all ports to find out if it is a server and what type it is
        • Two types:
          • Server Port Scanning
            • TCP
            • UDP
          • Client Port Scanning
            • NetBIOS
            • Ports 135 – 139 used for NetBIOS ports used for file and print services.

      • Scan Selective Ports
      Stealth Scanning Trish Miller
    • 25.
      • The goal of access control is to prevent attackers from gaining access, and stops them if they do.
      • The best way to accomplish this is by:
        • Determine who needs access to the resources located on the server.
        • Decide the access permissions for each resource.
        • Implement specific access control policies for each resource.
        • Record mission critical resources.
        • Harden the server against attacks.
        • Disable invalid accounts and establish policies
      Access Control Trish Miller
    • 26. Firewalls
      • Firewalls are designed to protect you from outside attempts to access your computer, either for the purpose of eavesdropping on your activities, stealing data, sabotage, or using your machine as a means to launch an attack on a third party.
      Trish Miller
    • 27. Firewalls (Cont.)
      • Hardware
        • Provides a strong degree of protection from the outside world.
        • Can be effective with little or no setup
        • Can protect multiple systems
      • Software
        • Better suite to protect against Trojans and worms.
        • Allows you to configure the ports you wish to monitor. It gives you more fine control.
        • Protects a single system.

      Trish Miller
    • 29. Proxy
      • A proxy server is a buffer between your network and the outside world.
      • Use an anonymous Proxy to prevent attacks.
      Trish Miller
    • 30. IPSec
      • Provides various security services for traffic at the IP layer
      • These security services include
        • Authentication
        • Integrity
        • Confidentiality
      Trish Miller
    • 31. IPsec overview - how IPsec helps Trish Miller Problem How IPsec helps Details Unauthorized system access Authentication, tamperproofing Defense in depth by isolating trusted from untrusted systems Targeted attacks of high-value servers Authentication, tamperproofing Locking down servers with IPsec. Examples: HR servers, Outlook ® Web Access (OWA), DC replication Eavesdropping Authentication, confidentiality Defense in depth against password or information gathering by untrusted systems Government guideline compliance Authentication, confidentiality Example: “All communications between financial servers must be encrypted.”

    • 34. Switch Vulnerabilities and Hacking Trish Miller
    • 35.
      • Used to locate IP address, version, and model.
      • Mass amounts of packets being sent can fake a crash
      • Used to troubleshoot network, but should be disabled.
      CDP Protocol Trish Miller
    • 36.
      • Give users data by poisoning ARP cache of end node.
      • MAC address used to determine destination. Device driver does not check.
      • User can forge ARP datagram for man in the middle attack.
      ARP Poisoning Trish Miller
    • 37.
      • SNMP manages the network.
      • Authentication is weak. Public and Private community keys are clear text.
      • Uses UDP protocol which is prone to spoofing.
      • Enable SNMPv3 without backwards compatibility.
      SNMP Trish Miller
    • 38.
      • Standard STP takes 30-45 seconds to deal with a failure or Root bridge change.
      • Purpose: Spanning Tree Attack reviews the traffic on the backbone.
      Spanning Tree Attacks Trish Miller
    • 39.
      • Only devices affected by the failure notice the change
      • The attacker can create DoS condition on the network by sending BPDUs from the attacker.
      Spanning Tree Attacks Trish Miller
    • 40.
      • STEP 1: MAC flood the access switch
      • STEP 2: Advertise as a priority zero bridge.
      Trish Miller Spanning Tree Attacks (Cont.)
    • 41. Spanning Tree Attacks (Cont.)
      • STEP 3: The attacker becomes the Root bridge!
        • Spanning Tree recalculates.
        • The backbone from the original network is now the backbone from the attacking host to the other switches on the network.
      Trish Miller Spanning Tree Attacks (Cont.)
    • 42.
      • Disabling STP can introduce another attack.
      • BPDU Guard
        • Disables ports using portfast upon detection of a BPDU message on the port.
        • Enabled on any ports running portfast
      STP Attack Prevention Trish Miller
    • 43.
      • Root Guard
        • Prevents any ports that can become the root bridge due to their BPDU

      • Cisco Secure Desktop
        • 3 major vulnerabilities
          • Maintains information after an Internet browsing session. This occurs after an SSL VPN session ends.
          • Evades the system via the system policies preventing logoff, this will allow a VPN connection to be activated.
          • Allow local users to elevate their privileges.
      Trish Miller CDM
    • 46.
      • Prevention
        • Cisco has software to address the vulnerabilities.
        • There are workarounds available to mitigate the effects of some of these vulnerabilities.

    • 49.
      • Devices running Cisco IOS versions 12.0S, 12.2, 12.3 or 12.4
        • Problem with the software
        • Confidential information can be leaked out
        • Software updates on the CISCO site can fix this problem

      • Cisco uBR10012 series devices automatically enable SNMP read/write access
      • Since there are no access restrictions on this community string , attackers can exploit this to gain complete control of the device
      Trish Miller
    • 53. Trish Miller CISCO Router Attacking Computer By sending an SNMP set request with a spoofed source IP address the attacker will be able to get the Victim router to send him its configuration file.
