Defense in Breadth

Salim (aeCERT)
For more information
Layer—each protects against specific attack vector
Depth—redundant layers

Breadth—one layer protects against one attack vector, second protects against different attack vector

What are Defensive Layers?
Mandiant prepared a 76 page report, videos, list of md5 hashes showing Chinese military stealing terabytes of data from corporations.

Mandiant released report to New York Times and others.

Ugly gorilla hacker
Defense in Depth: People, Technology, Operations.

Which one failed?
APT1 Exposes Weaknesses
United Arab Emirates Telecommunications Regulatory Authority web site was attacked on 19 July 2013 from Egypt.

Asian and African hackers were arrested by Dubai police on 3rd March 2013 for stealing AED 7 million from exchange companies.

Layered Protection
Layered Security
Layered security means implementing more than one security control, one complementing another, so that together they present an impenetrable force

Defense in depth recognizes that no security scheme is 100% effective, rather it focuses on putting up stumbling blocks to slow down an attack.

Layered Security
Encrypted Communication
Layered vs. Defense in Depth
Internal Network
“Practical Strategy for achieving Information assurance in today’s highly networked environments.”—NSA

“Information security strategy integration people, technology, and operations capabilities to establish variable barriers across multiple layer and missions of the organization.”—NIST

“Cisco recommends multiple and overlapping solutions.”—Cisco 640-553 certification guide

What is the operational envelope of
the network?
“A planned, systematic set of multidisciplinary activities that seek to identify, manage, and reduce risk of exploitable vulnerabilities at every state of the system, network, of subcomponent life cycle.”—NIST
