With widespread use of internet services, the network scale is expanding on daily basis and as the network scale increases so will the scale of security threats which can be applied to system connected to the network. Viruses and Intrusions are amongst most common threats that affects computer systems. Virus attacks can be controlled by proper antivirus installation and by keeping the antivirus up to date. Whereas any unauthorized access in the computer system by an intruder can be termed as Intrusion and controlled by IDS. Intruders can be grouped into two major categories which are external and internal Intruders. External intruders are individuals who are not authorized to access the system and attack it using various techniques. Internal intruders are individuals who are authorized to access the system but perform unauthorized activities on the system. An IDS watches activities performed on the network and searches for malicious
The past of biometrics includes the identification of people by distinctive body features, scars or a grouping of other physiological criteria, such like height, eye color and complexion. The present features are face recognition, fingerprints, handwriting, hand geometry, iris, vein, voice and retinal scan. Biometric technique is now becoming the foundation of a wide array of highly secure identification and personal verification. As the level of security breach and transaction scam increases, the need for well secure identification and personal verification technologies is becoming apparent. Recent world events had lead to an increase interest in security that will impel biometrics into majority use. Areas of future use contain Internet transactions, workstation and network access, telephone transactions and in travel and tourism. There have different types of biometrics: Some are old or others are latest technology. The most recognized biometric technologies are fingerprinting, retinal scanning,hand geometry, signature verification, voice recognition, iris scanning and facial
This risk leaves the business system open for hackers to break in and access all of the companies’ personal information
The primary purpose of this lab was to get familiar with RLES and establish a base infrastructure. This infrastructure includes a router/firewall and Linux server for network monitoring and documentation. Network monitoring is crucial in any infrastructure, no matter how small or how large. Without it, there is no way to know a system has gone down until users start complaining. With it, the system/network administrator can be aware of the issue the instant it happens. Documentation is also extremely important in any environment. Documentation is an Administrator’s lifeline if a system breaks and they either need to recreate it or repair it.

This ultimately results is a subsequent communication which requires the holder to disclose those passwords or taking on an additional task of tracking the passwords. In both the cases, the level of work is expanded and the police investigator has to take on additional tasks then he was initially required to. This while increasing the cost of investigation also increases the time taken in investigation. Therefore while identifying the property, or the hardware of the computer, an inclusion needs to be made in relation to the passwords that may be protecting that hardware. Similarly for the data demanded in the digital format the investigator, would have to highlight that mere data in digital format is not required, but also the passwords or the code's which restrict access to that data are also required. This would allow him to carry out investigation more
In the array of computer programs and online sites that have a security feature, I’ve been required to create a plethora of passwords. After my tenth or fifteenth or twentieth password I decided to create codes to help me remember them. When I create a password I use one of three codes which are a combination of letters, numbers and characters that include the name and type of site the password is used for. I only have to memorize three codes instead of many, many passwords. This, in essence, is what conditional knowledge is.

Keeping in mind the end goal to keep up the security of information, we can change the secret key or are made, when the need to put a touch befuddling.
Strong collision: given a message M1, it is not possible to find two distinct messages such that h (M1’) = h (M1). The probability of this collision is 2n/2.
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.
People from different sections of the universe are interacting, collaborating, socializing and doing other different activities via internet, which in turn exposes their personal information in cyberspace. Lack of knowledge and cyber security awareness makes these people to be vulnerable to hackers and other malicious players who use the cyber environment. These has been supported by Furnell, Bryan, Phippton, (2007) when they argued that personal or individual internet users are highly exposed to security threats while using their own home computers. It is therefore important that internet users should have clear understanding of all the risks of using internet, the importance of protecting their personal information and the outcome if this is not done
Human factors or ergonomics is a study that involves multiple discipline such as engineering, psychology, information science, and aviation (Staggers, Troseth, & DuLong, n.d.). It deals with designing a system that meets the physical, and cognitive abilities, limitation, and preferences of people (Steege, 2017). In healthcare, human factors plays an important role in designing tools and technology as it ensures that they are built to fit the mental, physical, emotional, and psychosocial capacities of people. The tools and technology that has been designed to meet the capacity of human results into the delivery of safe and effective patient care (Nelson & Stagger, 2012). The ultimate goal of human factors is to optimize the relationship between
