Wireless Security – The Big Picture • Latest Security Technologies • Cryptographic techniques • Managing digital certificates and PKI • Secure payment systems • Significant research developments Unique issues: - medium - mobility Security Solutions • IT Assets • Applications and automated services • Databases, files • Computing platforms • Middleware (e.g., web servers) • Networks (hardware, routing software) • External Factors • Intruder/attacker/assault Threats • Privacy and confidentialty laws • Consumer/customer attitudes • Organizational Requirements • Survivability and Tolerance • Requirements • QoS Requiremensts • Budgettary and policy restrictions • Physical Assets • Humans • Buildings • Other corporate assets • (e.g., planes, trains, and • automobiles) Copyrights: Amjad Umar

  27. User View (PIA4) Privacy • assure privacy of information (i.e., no one other than the authorized people can see the information) in storage or transmission Integrity • the integrity of information (i.e., no unauthorized modification) Authentication: • identify for certain who is communicating with you Authorization (Access control): • determine what access rights that person has). Accountability (Auditing): . • assure that you can tell who did what when and convince yourself that the system keeps its security promises. • Includes non-repudiation (NR) -- the ability to provide proof of the origin or delivery of data. • NR protects the sender against a false denial by the recipient that the data has been received. Also protects the recipient against false denial by the sender that the data has been sent.. • a receiver cannot say that he/she never received the data or the sender cannot say that he/she never sent any data Availability: access to system when a user needs it Copyrights: Amjad Umar

  28. Sample Wireless Security Technologies • SET for transaction security • S/MIME and PGP for secure email • Java security (sandboxes) • Database security Applications Can use higher level services to compensate for lower layers Tradeoffs in performance and security • SSL and TLS • WAP security (WTLS) • Web security (HTTPS, PICS, HTTP Headers) • Proxy server security Middleware TCP/IP • IPSEC and wirless VPN • Mobile IP • 802.11 security (WEP) • Cellular network security • Satellite link security • WLL and cordless link security Wireless Link Copyrights: Amjad Umar
