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.
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.
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.
