Case Studies in Secure Computing: Achievements and Trends by Biju Issac, Nauman Israr

By Biju Issac, Nauman Israr

In today’s age of instant and cellular computing, community and desktop safeguard is paramount. Case experiences in safe Computing: Achievements and traits gathers the newest learn from researchers who proportion their insights and most sensible practices via illustrative case studies.

This ebook examines the becoming defense assaults and countermeasures within the stand-alone and networking worlds, in addition to different pertinent safeguard matters. the numerous case experiences catch a really wide variety of safe computing functions. Surveying the typical parts in desktop safeguard assaults and defenses, the book:

  • Describes using characteristic choice and fuzzy common sense in a call tree version for intrusion detection
  • Introduces a collection of universal fuzzy-logic-based defense threat estimation thoughts with examples
  • Proposes a safe authenticated multiple-key institution protocol for instant sensor networks
  • Investigates a number of malicious actions linked to cloud computing and proposes a few countermeasures
  • Examines present and rising protection threats in long term evolution backhaul and center networks
  • Supplies a short creation to application-layer denial-of-service (DoS) attacks

Illustrating the safety demanding situations presently dealing with practitioners, this publication offers robust defense recommendations proposed by way of top researchers within the box. The exam of a few of the case stories may also help to advance the sensible figuring out required to stick one step sooner than the safety threats at the horizon.

This ebook may help these new to the sector know how to mitigate defense threats. it is going to additionally aid verified practitioners fine-tune their method of developing powerful and resilient protection for next-generation computing systems.

An attacker first installs his/her tools on a number of compromised systems on the Internet, thereafter called “zombies,” which the attacker can now control. A coordinated attack can then be launched at a preappointed time. Attackers may use anywhere from dozens to hundreds of zombies, distributed geographically, sometimes making use of spoofed IP addresses, making them harder to track (Peng et al. 2007). In a version of the DoS and DDoS, called the “distributed reflection attack,” an attacker will send a large number of request packets to various servers or hosts with a spoofed source IP address of a target host, causing them to reply to the target host.
