Unit 32: Networked Systems Security
LO1 A: Attacks
DoS / DDoS - Denial of Service (/Distributed)
Brute Force
Back door
Software exploitation
Class Activity 2:
In groups of three find two different security attacks reported in the news recently (the past year).

Create a presentation of those attacks to present to the rest of the group. These are to include what type of attack it was, what happened, the implications, who was affected and possible causes/sources.

You can use the following to create your presentation:
PowerPoint (With a design, not plain)
Prezi - Like PowerPoint but more design options
Bitstrips - comic strip software.
Sources of attacks
Internal e.g. disaffected staff.

External e.g. via internet connections or through unsecured wireless access point, viruses introduced by email.
Attacks where you least expect them.
Glossary of Terms
On Moodle there is a link to the glossary. I will be adding the terms for the different types of attacks.

You will be able to make comments on them and so I expect to see some on there in regards to the different attacks.

Access here: http://moodle.hrc.ac.uk/mod/glossary/view.php?id=78546
Class Activity 1:
In pairs research the two types of attack that you have been given and take down notes or create a short presentation to present to the rest of the group. These are to include:
What they are.
What they do.
How they are implemented.

These will then need to be added to a glossary (which you will be shown later) for reference when you are working on Assignment 1 Task 1.
News websites e.g. BBC News, Sky News, Guardian.
LO2A: Email systems
Security features e.g.secure MIME, spam, hoaxing, relay agents.
LO2B: Wireless systems
Security features e.g. site surveys, MAC association, WEP/WPA keys, TKIP
LO2C: Networked devices
Security features e.g. router, switch, wireless access point.
LO2D: Transmission media
Issues e.g. use of shielding (how it affects the data transfer through the cabling).
LO2G: Encryption
e.g. encrypting files for confidentiality, encryption with application-specific tools, recovering encrypted data.
LO2H: Intrusion detection systems
Devices e.g. firewalls, virus protection, spyware protection, file monitoring, folder monitoring, use of honeypots, alarms.
LO2E: Personal access control
Devices e.g. biometrics, passwords, usernames, permissions, digital signatures.
LO2F: Security control at device level
Access control e.g. protocols, log in, certificates.
LO3A: Policies and procedures
Education and training.
Backup and recovery schemes.
Configuring and upgrading software.
Setting up file and folder permissions.
LO3B: User Responsibilities
Adherence to specific guidelines e.g. strength of password, installation of new software.
LO3C: Education of IT professionals..
Maintenance of skills.
Knowledge of exploits.
Application of updates and patches.
LO3D: Physical security of system
Lock and key.
Logging of entry.
Secure room environments.
Authentication of individual.
LO3E: Risk assessment and reduction
Potential risks.
Penetration testing.
Security audits.
LO4A: Administration
Procedures e.g. implementing a password policy, locking down user accounts, securing administrator's permissions, protecting against viruses, restricting access to critical services, installing or upgrading software.
Setting up file and folder permissions.
LO4B: Algorithms
Types e.g. private/public key encryption, DES, 3DES, RSA, hashing.
LO4C: Transport
Methods e.g. IPSEC, GRE, VPN
LO4D: Application
e.g. certificates, trust memberships.
LO4E: Filtering
e.g firewalls. access control lists.
LO4F: Test
Test for functionality.
Test for performance e.g. does the security measure slow down system functions.
