Book Description :

Detecting system intrusions is the process of monitoring the events occurring in a computer system or network and analyzing them for signs of possible incidents, which are violations or imminent threats of violation of computer security policies, acceptable use policies, or standard security practices. The detection of system intrusions (DSIs) is primarily focused on identifying possible incidents, logging information about them, attempting to stop them, and reporting them to security administrators. In addition, organizations use the DSIs for other purposes, such as identifying problems with security policies, documenting existing threats, and deterring individuals from violating security policies. The DSIs have become a necessary addition to the security infrastructure of nearly every organization. In addition, the DSIs typically record information related to observed events, notify security administrators of important observed events, and produce reports. Many of the DSIs can also respond to a detected threat by attempting to prevent it from succeeding. They use several response techniques, which involve the DSIs stopping the attack itself, changing the security environment (reconfiguring a firewall), or changing the attack’s content. This chapter describes the characteristics of the DSI technologies and provides recommendations for designing, implementing, configuring, securing, monitoring, and maintaining them.

Book Description :

With an ever increasing amount of information being transmitted electronically, it is important that security be considered in every phase of local area network design and maintenance. Although much emphasis has been placed on such things as wireless networks and remote access, it is imperative that the core local area network not be overlooked. Because the wired local area network is the nervous system of an organization’s Information Systems, great care must be taken to properly secure it. This chapter begins by looking at the implications for the wired local area network infrastructure security. Next, local area network segmentation and traffic isolation will be discussed. By using segmentation and isolation, there is the increased opportunity for security boundaries. Another concept that will be discussed is the security of the local area network equipment. The local area network is only functional if the core equipment is operational, so securing equipment is an important part of any security strategy. To conclude, restriction of local area network access will be investigated and an organizational approach will be discussed. Because more and more users need access to local area network resources, there must be a way to identify and restrict who is allowed on the network and what access they are granted. In wired local area network infrastructure security, organizations must remember they are only as secure as their weakest point. By carefully considering the various aspects of the local area network security during design, these weak points can be reduced and the overall security of the network increased. Although it is impossible to be 100% secure and still be functional, by using some general guidelines to secure the wired local area network, many threats to the network can be reduced if not eliminated.

Book Description :

Many organizations encounter a common problem in their approach to intranet security: They treat intranets as an internal tool that is hidden deep in the corporate network and is somehow immune from external attacks. This is far from the truth, however. An intranet is basically a Web application exposed to a hostile environment the same way as the corporate Web site and therefore vulnerable to the same scope of threats. The fact that it is intended for employees and trusted parties doesn’t guarantee anything against hacker attacks, viruses, and spam. Failing to introduce a dedicated intranet security policy entails a range of risks associated with sensitive information leakage and data loss. For many organizations, safeguarding intranets is even more important than protecting their Web sites. Intranets usually contain extremely confidential assets crucial for both day-to-day activity and strategic business development. A successful attack may result in disruption of the organization’s operations, significant reputation damage, and infringement of legal regulations. To avoid unexpected embarrassment after launching an intranet, organizations must carefully evaluate the solution’s capability to cope with security issues. So, with the preceding in mind, this chapter provides information about all aspects of threats that affect intranet security. The chapter is intended for organizations that understand the changing nature of the threat landscape and what might be done to mitigate it.

Book Description :

Wireless communications offer organizations and users many benefits such as portability and flexibility, increased productivity, and lower installation costs. Wireless technologies cover a broad range of differing capabilities oriented toward different uses and needs. This chapter classifies wireless network security threats into one of nine categories: Errors and omissions; fraud and theft committed by authorized or unauthorized users of the system; employee sabotage; loss of physical and infrastructure support; malicious hackers; industrial espionage; malicious code; foreign government espionage; and, threats to personal privacy. All of the preceding represent potential threats to wireless networks. However, the more immediate concerns for wireless communications are fraud and theft, malicious hackers, malicious code, and industrial and foreign espionage. Theft is likely to occur with wireless devices due to their portability. Authorized and unauthorized users of the system may commit fraud and theft; however, the former are more likely to carry out such acts. Since users of a system may know what resources a system has and the system security flaws, it is easier for them to commit fraud and theft. Malicious hackers, sometimes called crackers, are individuals who break into a system without authorization, usually for personal gain or to do harm. Malicious hackers are generally individuals from outside of an organization (although users within an organization can be a threat as well). Such hackers may gain access to the wireless network access point by eavesdropping on wireless device communications. Malicious code involves viruses, worms, Trojan horses, logic bombs, or other unwanted software that is designed to damage files or bring down a system. Industrial and foreign espionage involve gathering proprietary data from corporations or intelligence information from governments through eavesdropping. In wireless networks, the espionage threat stems from the relative ease in which eavesdropping can occur on radio transmissions. This chapter provides an overview of wireless networking security technologies most commonly used in an office environment and by the mobile workforce of today. Also, this chapter seeks to assist organizations in reducing the risks associated with 802.11 wireless LANs, cellular networks, wireless ad hoc networks and for ensuring security when using handheld devices.
