An Illustrated Guide to IPsec IPsec is a suite of protocols for securing network connections, but the details and many variations quickly become overwhelming. This is particularly the case when trying to interoperate between disparate systems, causing more than one engineer to just mindlessly turn the knobs when attempting to bring up a new connection. This Tech Tip means to give bottom-up coverage of the low-level protocols used in an IPv4 context (we provide no coverage of IPv6). International Journal of Cyber-Security and Digital Forensics (IJCSDF) About this Journal The International Journal of Cyber-Security and Digital Forensics (IJCSDF) is a knowledge resource for practitioners, scientists, and researchers among others working in various fields of Cyber Security, Privacy, Trust, Digital Forensics, Hacking, and Cyber Warfare. We welcome original contributions as high quality technical papers (full and short) describing original unpublished results of theoretical, empirical, conceptual or experimental research. All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by members of the editorial board and selected reviewers and those accepted will be published in the next volume of the journal. As such, IJCSDF reserves the right to select only best submitted papers for publication. All submitted papers would be reviewed by at least two reviewers and one member of editorial committee.

CyberCIEGE Educational Video Game an innovative video game and tool to teach computer and network security concepts CyberCIEGE enhances information assurance and cyber security education and training through the use of computer gaming techniques such as those employed in SimCity™. In the CyberCIEGE virtual world, users spend virtual money to operate and defend their networks, and can watch the consequences of their choices, while under attack. Cyber Security Simulation In its interactive environment, CyberCIEGE covers significant aspects of computer and network security and defense. Players of this video game purchase and configure workstations, servers, operating systems, applications, and network devices. They make trade offs as they struggle to maintain a balance between budget, productivity, and security.

Top 10 Web hacking techniques of 2010 revealed Network World - A Web hack that can endanger online banking transactions is ranked the No. 1 new Web hacking technique for 2010 in a top 10 list selected by a panel of experts and open voting. Called the Padding Oracle Crypto Attack, the hack takes advantage of how Microsoft's Web framework ASP.NET protects AES encryption cookies. FROM THE SECURITY WORLD: Quirky moments at Black Hat DC 2011 If encryption data in the cookie has been changed, the way ASP.NET handles it results in the application leaking some information about how to decrypt the traffic.

Transport Layer Security protocol Updated: June 12, 2014 This topic for the IT professional describes how the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol works and provides links to the IETF RFCs for TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and TLS 1.2. The TLS (and SSL) protocols are located between the application protocol layer and the TCP/IP layer, where they can secure and send application data to the transport layer. Google's Python Class - Educational Materials Welcome to Google's Python Class -- this is a free class for people with a little bit of programming experience who want to learn Python. The class includes written materials, lecture videos, and lots of code exercises to practice Python coding. These materials are used within Google to introduce Python to people who have just a little programming experience. The first exercises work on basic Python concepts like strings and lists, building up to the later exercises which are full programs dealing with text files, processes, and http connections. The class is geared for people who have a little bit of programming experience in some language, enough to know what a "variable" or "if statement" is. Beyond that, you do not need to be an expert programmer to use this material.

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. What does it matter what the little acronym next to the security encryption standard you chose was? Four Wireless Hack Secrets Revealed You're using a wireless access point that has encryption so you're safe, right? Wrong! Hackers want you to believe that you are protected so you will remain vulnerable to their attacks. Here are 4 things that wireless hackers hope you won't find out, otherwise they might not be able to break into your network and/or computer: 1. WEP encryption is useless for protecting your wireless network.
