MIT Formally Kicks Off Cybersecurity Work -- Campus Technology Security MIT Formally Kicks Off Cybersecurity Work By Dian Schaffhauser03/16/15 MIT has shared additional details on how it plans to spend a $15 million cybersecurity grant. The multidisciplinary effort will address cybersecurity from three directions: technology, public policy and organizational management. For the technology angle, Cybersecurity@CSAIL will continue work into hardware- and software-based approaches to computer security. For the organizational side, MIT Sloan's interdisciplinary Consortium for Improving Critical Infrastructure in Cybersecurity, otherwise known as (IC)3, will focus on the human element — how organizations can make sure staff and other internal users don't create security vulnerabilities, intentionally or otherwise. Alongside CSAIL and Sloan, MIT's departments of political science and economics, and the Science, Technology, and Society program will also work to understand the security dynamics of large networked systems, with the aim of guiding policymakers.

Kerberos: The Network Authentication Protocol Recent News Old news is archived. 24 Feb 2015 - krb5-1.11.6 is released The krb5-1.11.6 source release is now available. 18 Feb 2015 - krb5-1.12.3 is released The krb5-1.12.3 source release is now available. 11 Feb 2015 - krb5-1.13.1 is released The krb5-1.13.1 source release is now available. What is Kerberos? Kerberos is a network authentication protocol. The Internet is an insecure place. Some sites attempt to use firewalls to solve their network security problems. Kerberos was created by MIT as a solution to these network security problems. Kerberos is freely available from MIT, under copyright permissions very similar those used for the BSD operating system and the X Window System. In summary, Kerberos is a solution to your network security problems. $Id: index.html,v 1.215 2015/02/25 23:38:52 tlyu Exp $ All images and text on this page are copyright MIT.

Android Tablet | Android Tablet 2012 Top 50 Hacking Tools That You Must Have Whether you are a Penetration tester, a hacker or an aspiring newbie trying to learn Cyber Security, you must have a nice catalogue of tools to make your life easier. While these tools do make working simpler but cannot compensate for the vast amount of knowledge required in this field. In this post i’m going to mention 50 different tools under 9 categories that your ‘Hack Lab’ must have. Most of the tools mentioned in this post are pre-included in Kali Linux which you can install to have them at once. Intrusion Detection Systems :- These are the tools you must have if you’re building a hack lab for penetration testing or for any security arrangement. SnortNetCop Encryption Tools :- While the above tools do identify any suspicious activity but they can’t protect your data, you need encryption tools for that.

5 Killer Tricks to Get the Most Out of Wireshark Wireshark has quite a few tricks up its sleeve, from capturing remote traffic to creating firewall rules based on captured packets. Read on for some more advanced tips if you want to use Wireshark like a pro. We’ve already covered basic usage of Wireshark, so be sure to read our original article for an introduction to this powerful network analysis tool. Network Name Resolution While capturing packets, you might be annoyed that Wireshark only displays IP addresses. You can convert the IP addresses to domain names yourself, but that isn’t too convenient. Wireshark can automatically resolve these IP address to domain names, although this feature isn’t enabled by default. You can enable this setting by opening the preferences window from Edit -> Preferences, clicking the Name Resolution panel and clicking the “Enable Network Name Resolution” check box. Start Capturing Automatically wireshark -i # -k For more command-line shortcuts, check out Wireshark’s manual page. tshark -i # -w filename

Wi-Fi Protected Setup Flaws Make Wireless Network Brute-force Attacks Feasible Design flaws in the Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) wireless standard can make it easier for attackers to obtain access codes for secured wireless networks by brute force. The vulnerabilities identified by security researcher Stefan Viehbock affect a large number of WPS-enabled routers and wireless access points. The WPS standard was created in 2007 by the Wi-Fi Alliance in order to provide non-technical users with a simple method of setting up wireless networks. The standard supports several Wi-Fi authentication methods including one that requires pushing a physical button on the router and one that uses a predefined PIN number printed on a sticker by the device manufacturer. The PIN-based method is mandatory for WPS-certified devices, which support it by default. Devices that are WPS-capable, but aren't certified, are also likely to use the method. The WPS PIN is an eight-digit random number. The main problem lies with how devices respond to failed WPS authentication attempts. The U.S.

NZXT H2 H2-001-WT White Steel / Plastic Classic Silent ATX Mid Tower Chassis This review is from: NZXT H2 H2-001-WT White Steel / Plastic Classic Silent ATX Mid Tower Chassis Pros: Excellent case! The case is spacious in essentially every regard. There's plenty of room for large CPU heatsink/fan configurations. There are a bunch of 3.5" internal drive bays (I use 6 mechanical hard drives+1 solid state drive and there are tons of bays and space left for more). I'm happy to say that the case can accommodate the largest video cards, no problem. Also, there is a very generous amount of space behind the motherboard tray to route ALL your cables through. Everything seems mostly high quality. Cons: None to speak of. Other Thoughts: While this is a "silent" case, it still features a decent amount of spots to mount fans - one 140mm on the top, one 120mm on the rear, one 120mm on the bottom (plus one where the power supply goes), and two 120mm on the front.

HTG Explains: The Difference Between WEP, WPA, and WPA2 Wireless Encryption (and Why It Matters) Even if you know you need to secure your Wi-Fi network (and have already done so), you probably find all the encryption acronyms a little bit puzzling. Read on as we highlight the differences between encryption standards like WEP, WPA, and WPA2–and why it matters which acronym you slap on your home Wi-Fi network. What Does It Matter? You did what you were told to do, you logged into your router after you purchased it and plugged it in for the first time, and set a password. WEP, WPA, and WPA2: Wi-Fi Security Through the Ages Since the late 1990s, Wi-Fi security algorithms have undergone multiple upgrades with outright depreciation of older algorithms and significant revision to newer algorithms. Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is the most widely used Wi-Fi security algorithm in the world. WEP was ratified as a Wi-Fi security standard in September of 1999.
