What is Network and System Security?
Definitions are fine as top-level statements of intent. But how do you lay out a plan for implementing that vision?
Protection: You have to configure your systems and networks as correctly as possible
Detection: You should be able to identify when the configuration has changed or when some network traffic indicates a problem
Reaction: After detecting problems quickly, you must respond to them and return to a safe state as rapidly as possible
DANGEROUS CYBER ATTACKS
1) Botnet – A botnet (robot and network) is a network of devices infected by an attacker and then used together to perform tasks such as DDoS attacks (see below), mining Bitcoin, and spreading spam emails.Any device those which are connected to the internet, including home routers, can be infected and pulled into a botnet without owner ever noticing.
SSl Security (Advantages & Drawbacks)
SSL or Secure Sockets Layer, is an encryption algorithm that encrypts communications between the end-user and the server. It helps to prevent hacking attacks that are based on eavesdropping. Anyone can easily tell if a site is protected by SSL if there is an “https://” in the address bar.
Does SSL provides Security?
The simple answer? No. BUT it can help.
SSL secures the network communication link only. Even though this is an important layer of security for sensitive applications, most attacks on websites are not done this way. Most of the attacks on websites are actually done via the web server or direct attacks on users (through malware or “phishing” scams).
Firewall VS Antivirus
A firewall can be defined as a standard approach that protects local computer assets from external threats. A firewall is designed to filter out the IP packets that are coming from the network to the computer. A firewall is also an effective way to protect the local system as well as against the network, and simultaneously you can access the internet or a wide area network.
Characteristics of a firewall The firewall ensures that all the traffic coming from outside to inside or vice versa should transfer through it.
Authorized traffics is permitted to transfer through the firewall (as described in the security policy).
It uses a trusted system with a secure operating system which makes it robust against penetration.
