People are checking their e-mails, surfing over the Internet, purchasing goods, playing online games, paying bills on the Internet everyday. However, while performing all these tasks, how many people think about security? Do they know the risks of being attacked, infected by malicious software? How many users are aware of that their computer may be used as zombie machines to target other victim systems? As technology is growing rapidly, newer attacks are appearing. Security is a key point to get over all these issues. In this thesis, we will make a real life scenario, using honeypots. Honeypot is a well designed system that attracts hackers into it. By luring the hacker into the system, it is possible to monitor the processes that are started and running. In other words, honeypot is a trap machine which looks like a real system in order to attract the attacker. The aim of the honeypot is analyzing, understanding, watching and tracking hacker’s behaviours in order to create more secure systems. Honeypot is also very useful for future threats to keep track of new attacks.

Smarter Than Us: The Rise of Machine Intelligence

What happens when machines become smarter than humans? Forget lumbering Terminators. The power of an artificial intelligence (AI) comes from its intelligence, not physical strength and laser guns. Humans steer the future not because we're the strongest or the fastest but because we're the smartest. When machines become smarter than humans, we'll be handing them the steering wheel. What promises—and perils—will these powerful machines present? Stuart Armstrong’s new book navigates these questions with clarity and wit.

Can we instruct AIs to steer the future as we desire? What goals should we program into them? It turns out this question is difficult to answer! Philosophers have tried for thousands of years to define an ideal world, but there remains no consensus. The prospect of goal-driven, smarter-than-human AI gives moral philosophy a new urgency. The future could be filled with joy, art, compassion, and beings living worthwhile and wonderful lives—but only if we’re able to precisely define what a "good" world is, and skilled enough to describe it perfectly to a computer program.
