In this first screenshot, I basically opened command prompt and search for ipconfig. Within those instructions, I have gather information that you can evidently see in the screenshot, such as my desktop’s name, wireless LAN adapter, Ethernet adapter LAN, and other connections running. Without typing ipconfig /all in command prompt, people wouldn’t be able to tell a lot from just using a sniffer like Wireshark. For instance, within the content of the screenshot you can tell I have Comcast due to the evidence (hsd1.va.comcast.net) from Connection-specific DNS Suffix. Another thing that can be evidently seen in the screenshot, is my IPv6 and IPv4 address which allows me connect/create more TCP/IP address within the Internet.
Using applocker, you must create rules that enable users to access the files needed for Windows and the system’s installed applications to run. Scenario 6-1 Sophia can create rules that allow this program to run but not allow other programs to run. Scenario 7-1 SmartScreen Filter in Internet explorer 8 has multiple mechanisms for observing sketchy websites. One of these is to analyze web pages for different phrases and patterns that would represent a phishing attempt. This does not use any more bandwidth usage and can be used on company workstations.
S-CSP: Storage provider is nothing but kind of an entity which makes available storage services of data inside a public cloud. S-CSP offers outsourcing data services and then it stores that data in support of a users of the data. To trim down the cost of storage, the Service Providers eradicates the storing of an unneeded data by using Deduplication technique or methods whereas it also maintains only distinctive form of data rather keeping all the files having similar content. Users: The owners or users are those who would like to outsource their data in public cloud to S-CSP then it access that stored data later whenever required. In this system of storage, in support of Deduplication method, a user uploads only unique single data copies/files although it is impossible for them to upload any duplicated data files.
This always used to be the way that companies would manage their local admin accounts, however I recently found that this is not the most secure way of handling this process. The reasoning behind this is that the GPO has to be readable to all clients they are pushing to, therefore the hashed password that is pushed to the machine is sitting publically accessible on the DC and can easily be attacked and cracked to reveal the local admin accounts. The proper way that I have found to handle this concern is to use a tool by Microsoft called LAPS. Auditing There are a number of different auditing settings that can be put in place that cover a number of different use cases, I will be going over just a few of those use cases. Initially when diving into auditing, there are some main features that would be beneficial to have.
1. Installing antivirus software on all the systems, for example Norton antivirus. 2. Installing antivirus and anti spam software on email servers, examples of antispam software include: 3. Install antivirus and content filter software on firewalls 4.
Access Control Access control is a type of security technique which is used to identify an authorised user who can view or who will use resources for various data processing activities in a secured environment. Access control describes selective choosing of the information on the network and only authorised users have access to those information. Accessing information means utilising the data for business processing activities on the network. The access control is secured with the help of username and password for which the access to information is given to only a set of authorised users on the
Microsoft provides a number of these including for Active Server Page and ASP.NET. Compatibility: Internet Information Services is designed to run on Windows server operating systems. A restricted version that supports one website and a limited number of connections is also supplied with Windows XP Professional. Microsoft has likewise changed the server account that IIS keeps running on. In versions of IIS before 6.0, all the features were run on the System account, permitting exploits to run wild on the system.
This allows you to back up, sync and access your data across multiple devices as long as they have internet capability. 8. How Cloud can be helpful in keeping online data Devices a. Encrypt the Data Before Putting it on the Cloud. Download a cloud protection application password and generate secret key sequences to your files before you actually upload them to the cloud. b.
Web is widely known as the Internet. Internet is a medium through which information can be viewed, reviewed and used either in a positive or a negative way. As everyone has an access to the information, there is a threat of misusing the data or sources available. A person can modify anyone’s data leading to unauthorized access and huge loss or damage; hence there is a need to secure the system thereby preventing the increasing cybercrimes. Now the question arises how to verify whether the security provided is accurate, adequate and correct?
It is defined by RFC 1350. It uses a client-server architecture. After establishing an FTP connection, the user can download or upload files to and from the FTP server. It is a simple version of FTP, lacking some more advanced features FTP offers. It can be used only to send and receive files.
This would make it much harder to compromise accounts if the local account is not being used. It also allows for more granular control. For example, users can be given a range of granular control from read only to full Administrator on the documentation wiki. Some users in an enterprise do not need to and/or should not know about the inner workings of other systems on the network. There’s also the important question of where to store network passwords.
In most instances, a system administrator will be accessing and configuring devices on the network via SSH, and in some cases, if SSH is not accessible the administrator can be completely locked out of a server or network device. In the context of this lab, all devices are accessible via SSH over the internal, so I have implemented necessary monitoring using Nagios.
