Information security requirements l.jpg
Information Security Requirements

  • Confidentiality: •Protection from disclosure to unauthorised persons

  • Access control: Unauthorised users are kept out

  • Authentication: Assurance of identity of person or originator of data

  • Non-repudiation: Protects against the originator ofcommunications later denying it

  • Availability: Legitimate users have access when they need it

  • Integrity: Maintaining data consistency. Protects from unauthorised data alteration


Security threats l.jpg
Security Threats

  • Information disclosure/information leakage

  • Integrity violation

  • Masquerading

  • Denial of service

  • Illegitimate use

  • Generic threat: Backdoors, trojan horses, insider attacks

  • Most Internet security problems are access control or authentication types

  • Denial of service is also popular, but mostly an annoyance


Services mechanisms algorithms l.jpg
Services, Mechanisms, Algorithms

A typical security protocol provides one or more services

•Services are built from mechanisms

•Mechanisms are implemented using algorithms


Conventional encryption l.jpg
Conventional Encryption

  • Uses a shared key

  • Problem of communicating a large message in secret is

  • reduced to communicating a small key in secret


Public key encryption l.jpg
Public-key Encryption

  • Uses matched public/private key pairs

  • Anyone can encrypt with the public key, only one person

  • can decrypt with the private key


Key agreement l.jpg
Key Agreement

  • Allows two parties to agree on a shared key

  • Provides part of the required secure channel for exchanging a conventional encryption key


Hash functions l.jpg
Hash Functions

  • Creates a unique “fingerprint” for a message

  • Anyone can alter the data and calculate a new hash value

  • Hash has to be protected in some way


Slide9 l.jpg
MAC’sMessage Authentication Code, adds a password/key to a hashOnly the password holder(s) can generate the MAC


Digital signatures combines a hash with a digital signature algorithm l.jpg

Message data encryption combines conventional and public key encryption l.jpg
Message/Data EncryptionCombines conventional and public-key encryption.



Slide14 l.jpg

Data Formats conventional encryption keysOne obviously-correct format for secured content allows straightforward one-pass processing for encapsulation and decapsulation


Security protocol layers l.jpg
Security Protocol Layers conventional encryption keys

The further down you go, the more transparent it is

The further up you go, the easier it is to deploy
