Private companies exert considerable control over the flow of information on the internet. Whether users are finding information with a search engine, communicating on a social networking site or accessing the internet through an ISP, access to participation can be blocked, channelled, edited or personalised. Such gatekeepers are powerful forces in facilitating or hindering freedom of expression online. This is problematic for a human rights system which has historically treated human rights as a government responsibility, and this is compounded by the largely light-touch regulatory approach to the internet in the west. Regulating Speech in Cyberspace explores how these gatekeepers operate at the intersection of three fields of study: regulation (more broadly, law), corporate social responsibility and human rights. It proposes an alternative corporate governance model for speech regulation, one that acts as a template for the increasingly common use of non-state-based models of governance for human rights.
The purpose of this research was to assess the potential of dynamic network reconfiguration and decoys to defeat adversary network reconnaissance efforts, thereby improving network defense. Specifically, this study sought to determine if the strategy has merit, thus warranting more resource intensive research and engineering studies. The research objective was achieved through a comprehensive literature review and limited technology survey. The key topics examined in the literature review include the network attack process, network defense strategies, deception and continuous unpredictable change. Many candidate technologies were surveyed, but only three identified as high potential were examined in detail: address hopping, honeypots and network telescopes.
This definitive reference resource on cyber warfare covers all aspects of this headline topic, providing historical context of cyber warfare and an examination its rapid development into a potent technological weapon of the 21st century.
• Provides comprehensive coverage of the major individuals, organizations, impacts, and issues related to cyber warfare that enables readers to better understanding of the impact of cyber warfare on modern conflicts

This book provides an easy insight into the essentials of cybersecurity, even if you have a non-technical background. You may be a business person keen to understand this important subject area or an information security specialist looking to update your knowledge. 'The world has changed more in the past 10 years than in any 10 year period in human history. . . Technology is no longer a peripheral servant, it shapes our daily lives. Companies that can use technology wisely and well are booming, companies that make bad or no technology choices collapse and disappear. The cloud, smart devices and the ability to connect almost any object to the internet are an essential landscape to use but are also fraught with new risks and dangers of a magnitude never seen before.' Also featuring an alphabetical section at the back of the book to help you translate many of the main cybersecurity technical terms into plain, non-technical English.
Due to expose of information on networks and relying on the Internet, there have been a surge number of attacks against servers and host systems. Honeypots’ technology is evolving to collect information about these kinds of attacks by simulating the human behavior for analyzing existing attacks. In as much as, Honeypot categorized as a subset of Intrusion Deception Systems, following human pattern behavior is the final aim that should be considered in developing and deploying Honeypot systems. The focus of this book is to understand and determine the effectiveness of client Honeypot interaction in order to capture more data.
