Collaborative Attacks on MANETs: An Analysis of Collaborative Attacks on Mobile Ad hoc Networks

Collaborative Attacks on MANETs: An Analysis of Collaborative Attacks on Mobile Ad hoc NetworksThe security in MANET has become a significant and active topic within the research community. In spite of the several attacks aimed at specific nodes in MANET that have been uncovered, some attacks involving multiple nodes still receive little attention. Furthermore, it may also have to do with the fact that no survey or taxonomy has been done to clarify the characteristics of different multiple node attacks. This thesis addresses the aforementioned gap by providing a proper definition and categorization of collaborative attacks against MANET from the various multiple node attacks found. Simulation using OPNET Modeler was used to investigate the performance impact of a collaborative blackhole attack on a mobile ad hoc network. Network throughput, packet delivery ratio and end-to-end delay are the performance metrics used in our result analysis. Based on the analyses of performance metrics made, we realised the consequences of a collaborative blackhole attack on MANET. In order to prevent or reduce these consequences, we also discuss a number of mitigation plans to counteract the different kinds of collaborative attacks.

Cyberwar and Cyber-attack: How is our strongest network at risk of becoming our weakest link?

Cyberwar and Cyber-attack: How is our strongest network at risk of becoming our weakest link?Cyber war and cyber-attack is an engaging review of the basic knowledge all up to date readers should have about cyber war and cyber-attacks before diving into more complex texts, as well as extra information for those already familiar with the topic. This work takes a look at general issues involving cyber vulnerability and our growing dependency on computers systems and networks. It goes beyond simple concepts such as hackers, hacktivism and espionage without neglecting them. It exposes the relevance of cyberdefence to both companies and ordinary users, giving especial attention to e-commerce platforms. At a time that many countries are employing strategies and money to prevent or minimize attacks as well as defend themselves against cyber threats this work pinpoints the key factors around the intentions behind attacks without minimizing their scale and variety. The jargon-free language and the current examples included help to set the discussion in the present day, while stressing important historical connections and pointing to how our strong network is at risk of becoming our weakest link.

FORCE MULTIPLIER FOR INTELLIGENCE: Collaborative Open Source Networks Report

FORCE MULTIPLIER FOR INTELLIGENCE: Collaborative Open Source Networks Report (Csis Report)As recent events demonstrate, the manifestations of Islamist extremism in Europe are manifold. They range from youngsters who reject both government and academic attempts at multiculturalism to radical imams who influence their congregations against their host countries to fundamentalist converts who believe the West is on a crusade to destroy Islam. Chat rooms on the Internet are used with powerful effect to proselytize, recruit, radicalize, fund raise, train, and plot acts of terrorism. In part to counter violent Islamist extremism, the U.S. National Intelligence Strategy seeks to: (1) develop innovative ways to penetrate and analyze the most difficult targets ; and (2) strengthen analytic expertise, methods, and practices; tap expertise wherever it resides; and explore alternative analytic views. Consequently, the director of national intelligence has given top priority to enhancing outreach to the myriad sources of expertise and open source information that can play a decisive role in countering threats such as terrorism. Over the past year, the CSIS Transnational Threats Project operated and tested a global Trusted Information Network (TIN) devoted to critical threat issues demonstrating that structured interaction with nongovernmental experts on the periphery can provide innovative, alternative analysis and perspectives. Islamist extremism in Europe was explored by the TIN s internationally recognized experts, even as daily events in Europe illustrated that al Qaeda inspired terrorists continue to proliferate among Muslim communities there. TIN members, in a collaborative online setting, contributed fresh information and perceptions about the extremists route to violence and their aspirations. This report reviews the workings of the CSIS network and demonstrates the contribution such a TIN can make as a force multiplier for intelligence in the information age.

Critical Infrastructure Protection (IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology)

Critical Infrastructure Protection (IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology)The information infrastructure–comprising computers, embedded devices, networks and software systems–is vital to operations in every sector. Global business and industry, governments, and society itself, cannot function effectively if major components of the critical information infrastructure are degraded, disabled or destroyed.

This book contains a selection of 27 edited papers from the First Annual IFIP WG 11.10 International Conference on Critical Infrastructure Protection.

Attacks on Wireless LANs About the security of IEEE 802.11 based wireless networks

Attacks on Wireless LANs  About the security of IEEE 802.11 based wireless networksWireless LANs can be found nearly everywhere today. Most mobile computers ship with built-in wireless LAN hardware by default and most other computers can be equipped with additional hardware. Because all data is transmitted wirelessly, extra security is needed in these networks. This was a concern to the creators of the IEEE 802.11 standard, who designed a simple protocol called WEP which stands for Wired Equivalent Privacy to protect such networks. Unfortunately, the WEP protocol has some serious design flaws and various attacks are possible against WEP protected networks. This book presents nearly all currently known attacks on the WEP protocol, including their theoretical background and their implementation. This book is intended for network operators, who want to learn more about wireless security, and also for cryptographers, who want to understand the theoretical background of these attacks.
