Surprisingly, The American Civil Liberties Union states that,“history has shown that powerful, secret surveillance tools will almost certainly be abused for political ends and turned disproportionately on disfavored minorities”(ALCU). This suggests that privacy is often unjustified within the barriers of the national security and many people are associated with the stigma of being targeted by national security through surveillance. This is important because the use of security can violate the rights privacy and contribute to the stigmation which in the DHS case is the blame of being associated with
DNA profiling is a method of identification that is seen more and more often. Although the method of DNA profiling is a great method to use and has multiple upsides to using it; DNA profiling also has several disadvantages that come along with the method. With all of these negatives, people are opposing the use of DNA profiling in all fields that can use the method. One of the downsides to using the method of DNA profiling is that the method involves the invasion of a person’s privacy. Taking DNA from someone either willingly or forcefully, and investigating the person’s personal background, invades their privacy in a situation like a criminal investigation.
BIOMETRICS AS A SECURITY PROVIDER Sakshi Sanjay Gavali B.Tech. CTIS, Sandip University, Nashik. email@example.com Pooja Nivrutti Kale B.Tech. CTIS, Sandip University, Nashik firstname.lastname@example.org Abstract Now a days, security of the confidential information of the organization or an individual become a serious issue. Because of vulnerability of system allow to unauthorized person to access the confidential information or data .
passwords). Biometric Access Control (ABAC) system is expected to certify and authenticate membership status of the user by employing biometric signals without prior knowledge of their true identity. This might help curb possibilities of security access breaches by hackers and imposters which can sabotage the integral purity of the information within the University of Botswana database servers. Hypothetically speaking a solution could be achieved through the use of biometrical access control systems as this paper mainly focuses on access control.

Cryptography is one of widely used technique of secret writing which is the term used for data and information security and protects that information from various attacks. Cryptography is the process of converting a known text or plaintext into a human unreadable format called cipher text by encoding the original message using some encoding technique. Security is concerned with the protection of the network and data transmission over the network. Data Security is the most essential aspect of secure data transmission over the network. But to achieve complete data security is a challenging issue of data communication.
Effective password policy is needed to prevent the passwords from being guessed or cracked. The password policy covers the passwords of all types via passwords of users, systems, databases, applications, etc.., while the password policy can be enforced where they are used frequently and by users, it is difficult to enforce for the passwords used in application to application communication. This article talks about the challenges and possible solution to eliminate embedded passwords in application. Credentials used for application to application (A2A) authentication are typically hard-coded or embedded in the configuration files of the applications. These credentials, including SSH keys are easily sought after and can be potentially exploited by cyber attackers when left
Hospitals should purchase self-encrypting hard drives. According to beckershospitalreview.com “Self-encrypting hard drives provide Source: iamwire.com stronger protection.” Encryption “uses a complex algorithm called a cipher in order to turn normalized data (plaintext) into a series of seemingly random characters (ciphertext) that is unreadable by those without a special key in which to decrypt it (makeuseof.com).” This is a very valuable asset to hospitals because if they ever got hit with a cyber attack the hackers wouldn’t be able to see what the data
Cryptography is a technique or method to secure personal data from unauthorized user. In cryptography two types of operation are performed. (i) Encryption and (ii) Decryption. To encrypt and decrypt data a secret key is used. After encryption original data is converted into another format known as cyphertext, which is not easy to understand.
In this world, where humans cannot live without the benefits of technology, it is impossible to ignore ethical problems. There are ethical challenges as the technology develops, such as the autonomous machines may supersede humans and threaten human existence, and new DNA-based treatment might be the trigger of privacy problems. First, ethics is the philosophical study that deals with what is morally right and wrong in wide scale not only in the scientific field, but also in public, and ethical problems occur as the new technology emerges. Emerging technology includes new technologies and technologies that are starting to be used. For instance, fuel-cell vehicles, artificial intelligence the digital genome, and robots are the emerging technologies.
According to Glenn Greenwald and Ewen MacAskill, “Unlike the collection of those call records, this surveillance can include the content of communications and not just the metadata.” Privacy in today’s world has become a thing of the past with advancement of surveillance technology similar to those exploited by the Ministry of Love. Likewise, according to Eugene Samuel, “ But critics of the project are calling for it to be scrapped, saying it allows the US government an unprecedented window on every citizen 's life, and risks causing miscarriages of justice.” Although they claim that the intrusive and deteriorating effect is necessary for protecting the state, giving up personal freedoms for a threat whose existence
A virus can be in form of an email from an known source, clicking on such emails or attachment can lead a breach of data security. Thus, a computer should be protected by anti-virus and anti spyware software to reduce vulnerability. Company computers should be checked for out of date anti- virus and anti spyware software as they may fail to detect viruses. What do your examples have in common? What my example has in common is that anyone externally can breach the security of data, if a company does not put certain security measures in place.
Misuse detection is used to identify previously known attacks for which they require before hand knowledge of attack signature. the disadvantage of this method is that prior knowledge of the attack is required and hence new attacks cannot be identified until new attacks signature have been developed for them. In anomaly detection system monitors activity to detect any significant deviation from normal user behavior compared to known user standard behavior, this type of intrusion detection can effectively protect against both well known and new attacks since no prior knowledge about intrusion is required. One of the most significant aspects of Intrusion Detection System is the use of Artificial Intelligence techniques to train the IDS about possible threats and gather information about the various traffic patterns to infer rules based on these patterns to distinguish between to differentiate between normal and intrusive
Don’t use words that exist in foreign dictionaries as your passwords. It is risky. Online criminals and hackers could easily crack such passwords. However, you can use the first letter of each word in a long phrase to create strong passwords. You can also strengthen such passwords by making some letters uppercase and by swapping out some letters with numbers and symbols 7.
a) Not true, the message can also be decrypted with the Public Key b) A so called “one way function with back door” is applied for the encryption c) The Public Key contains a special function which is used to encrypt the message and which can only be reversed by the appropriate Private Key d) The encrypted message contains the function for decryption which identifies the Private Key Answer:b 9. What is the main drawback of the symmetric Encryption? a) More complex and therefore more time-consuming calculations b) Problem of the secure transmission of the Secret Key c) Less secure encryption function d) Isn’t used any more Answer:b 10. What is the purpose a key during encrypt a message? a) The key indicates which function is used for encryption.
However, despite these vast improvements, technology has also come with a lot of risks especially regarding personal information. Apple’s new finger scan feature may violate one’s right to use the fifth amendment which protects one from giving information that may self- incriminate one of a crime. The issue with Apple’s new software is that it
