What is security Why do we need security Basic Terminology Security Management Attacks Others Securities Wireless Security Firewall Virtual Private Network
Freedom from risk or danger; safety. Freedom from doubt, anxiety, or fear; confidence. Information Security - Information security = confidentiality + integrity + availability + authentication Authorization of access to data in a network, which is controlled by the network administrator.
To prevent and monitor unauthorized access, misuse, modification, or denial of a computer network and network-accessible resources. Protect vital information while still allowing access to those who need it. Provide authentication and access control for resource. Guarantee availability of resources. To prevent malicious attacks from hacking and spamming

Cloud computing security A set of policies, technologies, and controls to protect data, applications. Crime ware A class of malware designed specifically to automate cybercrime. Cyber security standards ISO/IEC 27002 IT Baseline Protection Catalogs Data loss prevention Information Leak Detection and Prevention (ILDP) Information Leak Prevention (ILP) Content Monitoring and Filtering (CMF) Information Protection and Control (IPC)
Wireless security is the prevention of unauthorized access or damage to computers using wireless networks. WLAN uses spread-spectrum or OFDM modulation technology wireless security are Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) Wireless Intrusion Prevention Systems (WIPS) or Wireless Intrusion Detection Systems (WIDS) common used technique. Ad-hoc networks Non-traditional networks Man-in-the-middle attacks Denial of service
Infrastructure topology using multiple BSS AP: Access Point AP AP AP BSS BSS wired network
Effective means of protection a local system or network of systems from network-based security threats while affording access to the outside world via WAN`s or the Internet. Aims: Establish a controlled link Protect the premises network from Internet-based attacks Provide a single choke point
Design goals: All traffic from inside to outside must pass through the firewall (physically blocking all access to the local network except via the firewall) Only authorized traffic (defined by the local security police) will be allowed to pass
Three common types of Firewalls: Packet-filtering routers Applies a set of rules to each incoming IP packet and then forwards or discards the packet Filter packets going in both directions, policies (discard or forward) Application-level gateways Also called proxy server Acts as a relay of application-level traffic Circuit-level gateways Specialized function performed by an Application-level Gateway Sets up two TCP connections (Bastion host) The bastion host serves as a platform for an application-level or circuit-level gateway
A VPN is a means of transporting traffic in a secure manner over an unsecured network. A VPN usually achieves this by employing some combination of encryption, authentication, and tunneling. "Tunneling" (encapsulation) refers to the process of encapsulating or embedding one network protocol to be carried within the packets of a second network. Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol (PPTP); Layer 2 Tunneling Protocol (L2TP); Internet Protocol Security (IPSec); SOCKS.
