Internet Security

A Denial of Service and Some IPsec-Implementations

ABSTRACT

IP security (IPSec) is in global use for example in corporate Virtual Private Networks. It is also intended for the protection of nodes in the third generation (3G) mobile networks. Denial of Service (DoS) is a threat especially in 3G networks where availability requirements are very strict. This thesis is about identifying those threats and presenting methods for analyzing IPSec implementations and their vulnerabilities to certain Denial of Service attacks.

A Review of IPv6 Security Concerns

ABSTRACT

This study focus on the security concerns of IPv6. A broad introduction to IPv6 is made then briefly the differences between the IPv6 and IPv4 protocols are looked at, their known vulnerabilities and this identifies some security concerns when implementing IPv6. Even after 13 years, IPv6is still considered a new network protocol. With this in mind not much is known about IPv6. Since the IPv4 address space will be used up within the next few months, IPv6 should finally become more mainstream.

Developing a Strategic Framework for Managing Security in SCADA Systems

ABSTRACT

The Internet, originally an open distributed system, has gradually evolved into a complex network as a platform for global connectivity. Today, the Internet hosts complex electronic and engineering systems (such as Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition – SCADA – systems) deployed to manage critical infrastructures. The Internet has become a platform for transporting high volumes of critical information worldwide. Securing sensitive information and safeguarding operations of critical infrastructure management systems has become critical. SCADA systems are deployed, complex operations that play a vital role in managing critical resources. This paper elaborates on the need for a holistic approach for managing the security of complex infrastructures and recommends a strategic model for security management of SCADA systems.
