Man-in-the-browser is a Trojan that infects a Web browser. A Trojan has the ability to modify Web pages and online transaction content, or insert itself in a covert manner, without the user noticing anything suspicious. This chapter presents a study of several man-in-the-browser attacks that tamper with the user’s transactions and examines different attack vectors on several software layers. We conclude that there are many possible points of attack on different software layers and components of a Web browser,

Educational tools related to firewalls and firewall configurations are central to the development of cybersecurity education, due to the integral role firewalls play in this field. To assess the current state of firewall education, we developed a set of criteria that educational exercises should meet. They should be competitive, interactive, extensible, and approachable. These criteria were then applied to three existing firewall exercises in order to gauge their strengths and weaknesses. With that information in mind, we then looked to

The current mechanism implemented for Web session management implies exchanging session cookies between a Web application client (usually a browser) and a Web application server. Besides having privacy issues, the security of Web sessions can be affected by various reasons related to cookies. There are several vulnerabilities that threaten a Web application specifically related to cookies: theft, tampering, and/or forgery. Any of these vulnerabilities may favor session theft and/or unauthorized access using the identity of another user in

Providing data security in the optical layer enables low latency data encryption and enlarges the capacity for secure data transmission. As the demand for both secure and high speed transmission grows dramatically, secure data transmission is pushing the requirements for processing speed and network capacity. As fiber-optic systems form the backbone of communication networks, optical approaches for protecting the network security increases the available capacity of the network. Moreover, compared to electric circuits, fiber-optic systems are immune to electromagnetic interference

In this chapter, we discuss the threats, challenges, and guidance associated with securing an organization’s core IT infrastructure at the network, host, and application levels in the cloud. According to the best knowledge of the authors, up to now, there are no research with this perspective on cloud security in the literature. This chapter represents our first discussion of this infrastructure security in the context of SPI service delivery models (SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS). Non-information security professionals are cautioned

Lack of security is a constant concern in open distributed systems. Because of this problem, many tools for evaluating vulnerabilities of networks, as well as for their protection, are being developed and largely deployed; for example, techniques for encryption, antivirus, firewall, and IDSs (Intrusion Detection Systems). Among these, there are IDSs that are increasingly conceived, designed, and implemented. Currently, IDSs are created using software agents. Although IDSs can provide intrusion detection and countermeasures against threats, they are subjected to attacks.

In this chapter we state that metrics and indicators are key, reusable organizational assets for providing suitable data and information for analyzing, recommending, and ultimately making decisions. In a nutshell, the metric represents the specification of a measurement process that transforms an entity attribute (i.e., the input; such as a security property) into a measure (i.e., the output, which is data), and the (elementary) indicator is the specification of an evaluation process, which has as input a metric’

The intent mechanism of the Android platform is a powerful message-passing system that allows for sharing data among components and applications. Nevertheless, it might also be used as an entry point for security attacks if incautiously employed. Attacks can be easily sent through intents to components, which can indirectly forward them to other components, and so on. In this context, this chapter proposes a model-based security testing approach to attempt to detect data vulnerabilities in Android applications. In other words,

This chapter introduces natural language information assurance and security (NL IAS), a new front in information security effort enabled by applying the Ontological Semantics approach to natural language processing to the existing and new applications. It reviews the earlier (1999–2004) application implementations, their increasing and expanding computational semantic foundations, and new advances (2010–2013). The thrust of the chapter is that access to comprehensive natural language meaning—incrementally approximating human understanding and based on the dedicated semantic resources, the language independent property rich

The need for well-trained Information Security and Assurance (ISA) professionals, as well as general information security awareness, has increased considerably in the last decade and shows no sign of slowing. To address this need, both industry and academia have been driven to innovative approaches. The use of digital games and game mechanics to further education has received growing attention and respect in the last several years. There is strong evidence that thoughtful employment of gaming elements can improve motivation and

In order to increase the accuracy of intrusion detection rate and reduce the false alarm rate for cyber-security analysis, attack correlation has become an indispensable component in most intrusion detection systems. However, traditional intrusion detection techniques often fail to handle the complex and uncertain network attack correlation tasks. We propose the creation of semantic networks that build relationships among network attacks and assist in automatically identifying and predicting related attacks. Also, our method can increase the precision in detecting probable

A concise history of systems security engineering (SSE) is provided with emphasis on recent revitalization efforts. Next, a review of established and emerging SSE methods, processes, and tools (MPT) frequently used to assess and manage critical shortfalls in the development and fielding of complex information-centric systems is provided.

Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) is a revolutionary security technology that exploits the laws of quantum mechanics to achieve information-theoretic secure key exchange. QKD enables two parties to “grow” a shared secret key without placing any limits on an adversary’s computational power. QKD is unique because it exploits the fundamental laws of quantum mechanics to detect the presence of any third-party eavesdropping on the key exchange. In this chapter, we present a historical survey of the development of QKD systems

Access control comprises a central concept in ICT security, leveraged for the protection of various resources, including systems, networks, applications, services, corporate assets, and information. It has also emerged as an important mechanism for the protection of personal data, resulting in a family of models referred to as privacy-aware access control. Due to the increasing complexity of the ICT ecosystem, various approaches have been proposed with the aim to provide expressive access control models and, in this context, Semantic Web
