Historical Development Internet Originally a Small Research Project Few PCs at examination focuses Connected by means of moderate (by today’s standard) interfaces All clients are specialists on the framework First genuine “killer application”: email Planned for Some “Security” Concerns The primary “threat” was that PCs or system connections may quit working.

Slide 5

Early “Security” Problems Rare Cases of Malfunctioning Computers Computer at MIT broke down and most east drift PCs could no more achieve the west drift. Arrangement: client group collaborated to discover and fix the issue. Uncommon Cases of Application Misuse Someone sent an email message reporting another item that was available to be purchased. Arrangement: group educated the sender to never again send “spam” email and the sender apologized

How Can this Happen From “Secrets and Lies” by Schneier (every old issue so don’t attempt them!) Under specific conditions, a contorted clasp workmanship document can let self-assertive code execute on the clients PC. MS Explorer 5.0 permits an assailant to setup a Web page giving him the capacity to execute any project on a visitor’s machine. Vulnerabilities in complex programming an unavoidable.

Slide 15

Impact of Compromised PCs More Serious (non-webcam) Consequences Attacker has entry to your documents Logs your keystrokes Gains information about you Real Goal is Likely Something Larger Your PC gives the aggressor a concealing spot Provides assets Provides data transfer capacity

Slide 16

Distributed Denial of Service Attackers Control Massive Resources Networks of 100,000+ traded off PCs Each PC can send a huge number of messages/sec What if one coordinates all messages at sear website? Case: aggressor chooses www.colostate.edu as target Direct all zombies to send information to focus as quick as could reasonably be expected Consumes every accessible asset at focus on No data transfer capacity, no CPU, and so forth to handel substantial solicitations. How Do You Defend Against This? Answer today: to a great extent specially appointed separating

Worms and Network Design Assumed there is some imperative reason for the correspondence Ex: information and assets utilized as a part of figurings to discover a cure for malignancy. Asset Identification Success Found and made utilization of 75K PCs on 6 landmasses Located 90% of accessible assets in 10 minutes Routing and Transport Success UDP transport gave fruitful basic best exertion conveyance Network directing conveyed parcels starting with one end of globe then onto the next Of Course Some Challenges Still Remain…. Unexpected cooperations brought about scratched off carrier flights, ATM failures… to adventure a known microsoft security gap these 75K would not have liked to give assets!
