What is internet security l.jpg
What is Internet Security

  • Internet security is the practice of protecting and preserving private resources and information on the Internet.

  • Internet Security is keeping anyone from doing things you do not want them to do, with on or from your computers or any peripheral devices.

  • One of the Internet's key strengths is that no one agency or organization is responsible for its overall management, leaving it largely free of bureaucratic control and burdensome regulation. From a security standpoint, however, this could also be viewed as one of its weaknesses.

Types of protocols l.jpg
Types Of Protocols

  • TCP/IP- It’s the usual shorthand phrase for a collection of communications protocols. Originally developed by ARPANET.

  • IP- Packets are bundles of data from the foundation of TCP/IP protocol suite.

  • ARP- Works by sending out the an Ethernet broadcast packet containing the desired IP address.

  • TCP- Provides reliable virtual circuits to user processes.

  • UDP- Is used for large transmissions it tends to behave badly on network. Its easier to spoof UDP than TCP packets, since there’s no handshakes or sequence numbers.

  • ICMP- Its used to influence behavior of TCP and UDP connections. To report trouble with route and terminate connection because of network problems.

  • FTP- Supports the transmission and character set translation of text and binary files.

Internet security problems l.jpg
Internet Security Problems

  • Securing the web server and data that is on it

  • Securing Information that travels between the web and the user

  • Securing the end user’s computer and other devices that people use to access the Internet.

  • Business Integrity- Credit card security is one of the biggest issue of the Internet because the potential to literally create a world wide commerce opens a very large hole to credit card fraud.

  • Systems Disabled- Systems providing TCP-based services (WWW, email, newsgroup, gopher, etc ...) to the Internet community may be unable to provide those services while under a hacker's attack and for some time after the attack has ceased.

How hackers operate l.jpg
How Hackers Operate??

  • Hacker-is programmer who hacks or reaches a goal by employing a series of modifications to exploit or extend existing code or resources gain unauthorized access through skill and tactics.

  • Password Cracking-are usually the first thing a hacker will try to "break" to gain access to your system.

  • Packet and password sniffing- Hackers have programs which do this, and then scan all the messages which traverse a network looking for passwords.

  • IP spoofing- Hacker sends a client request to the server using the source route.

  • Social Engineering- Phone, talk or Internet chat.

  • Firewalls- is device that checks each packet against a list rules to permit or deny that transmission.

  • It a system designed to prevent unauthorized access to or from a private network. Firewalls can be implemented in both hardware and software or a combination of both.

  • Proxy Firewall- User runs an application, then the application connects to the firewall and logs in.

  • Encryption- Encryption is the transformation of data into a form unreadable by anyone without a secret decryption key.

  • Symmetric Encryption-It is a type of encryption where the same key is used to encrypt and decrypt the message.

  • Authentication- is a process whereby the receiver of a digital message can be confident of the identity of the sender and/or the integrity of the message. Its mechanism for users to change their passwords or obtain new passwords.

What can you do l.jpg
What Can You Do??

  • Make sure network is guided against spoofing.

  • Secure your machines.

  • Make your password difficult, use Punctuations and characters.
