In this chapter we state that metrics and indicators are key, reusable organizational assets for providing suitable data and information for analyzing, recommending, and ultimately making decisions. In a nutshell, the metric represents the specification of a measurement process that transforms an entity attribute (i.e., the input; such as a security property) into a measure (i.e., the output, which is data), and the (elementary) indicator is the specification of an evaluation process, which has as input a metric’

In this chapter, we discuss the threats, challenges, and guidance associated with securing an organization’s core IT infrastructure at the network, host, and application levels in the cloud. According to the best knowledge of the authors, up to now, there are no research with this perspective on cloud security in the literature. This chapter represents our first discussion of this infrastructure security in the context of SPI service delivery models (SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS). Non-information security professionals are cautioned

The need for well-trained Information Security and Assurance (ISA) professionals, as well as general information security awareness, has increased considerably in the last decade and shows no sign of slowing. To address this need, both industry and academia have been driven to innovative approaches. The use of digital games and game mechanics to further education has received growing attention and respect in the last several years. There is strong evidence that thoughtful employment of gaming elements can improve motivation and

Educational tools related to firewalls and firewall configurations are central to the development of cybersecurity education, due to the integral role firewalls play in this field. To assess the current state of firewall education, we developed a set of criteria that educational exercises should meet. They should be competitive, interactive, extensible, and approachable. These criteria were then applied to three existing firewall exercises in order to gauge their strengths and weaknesses. With that information in mind, we then looked to

In order to increase the accuracy of intrusion detection rate and reduce the false alarm rate for cyber-security analysis, attack correlation has become an indispensable component in most intrusion detection systems. However, traditional intrusion detection techniques often fail to handle the complex and uncertain network attack correlation tasks. We propose the creation of semantic networks that build relationships among network attacks and assist in automatically identifying and predicting related attacks. Also, our method can increase the precision in detecting probable

Nowadays, cybersecurity makes headlines across the media and in companies, blogs, social networks, among other places. The Internet is a wild cyberspace, an arena for commercialization, consumerism, business, and leisure, to name a few activities. Networks, populations, and nations around the world, now interconnected through the Internet, rely on it for their daily lives. But some Internet users have learned to take advantage of vulnerable systems and of Internet technologies for their own good, sending out spam, phishing, data breaches,

Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) is a revolutionary security technology that exploits the laws of quantum mechanics to achieve information-theoretic secure key exchange. QKD enables two parties to “grow” a shared secret key without placing any limits on an adversary’s computational power. QKD is unique because it exploits the fundamental laws of quantum mechanics to detect the presence of any third-party eavesdropping on the key exchange. In this chapter, we present a historical survey of the development of QKD systems

Access control comprises a central concept in ICT security, leveraged for the protection of various resources, including systems, networks, applications, services, corporate assets, and information. It has also emerged as an important mechanism for the protection of personal data, resulting in a family of models referred to as privacy-aware access control. Due to the increasing complexity of the ICT ecosystem, various approaches have been proposed with the aim to provide expressive access control models and, in this context, Semantic Web

Man-in-the-browser is a Trojan that infects a Web browser. A Trojan has the ability to modify Web pages and online transaction content, or insert itself in a covert manner, without the user noticing anything suspicious. This chapter presents a study of several man-in-the-browser attacks that tamper with the user’s transactions and examines different attack vectors on several software layers. We conclude that there are many possible points of attack on different software layers and components of a Web browser,

Providing data security in the optical layer enables low latency data encryption and enlarges the capacity for secure data transmission. As the demand for both secure and high speed transmission grows dramatically, secure data transmission is pushing the requirements for processing speed and network capacity. As fiber-optic systems form the backbone of communication networks, optical approaches for protecting the network security increases the available capacity of the network. Moreover, compared to electric circuits, fiber-optic systems are immune to electromagnetic interference

CCTV systems are broadly deployed in the present world. Despite this, the impact on anti-social and criminal behavior has been minimal. To ensure in-time reaction for intelligent surveillance, it is a fundamental task for real-world applications to determine the trajectory of any interested subject. However, precise video information for subjects (e.g., face information) is not always available, especially in zones without cameras. In these cases, we have to use event reasoning techniques to combine all kinds of dynamic information (

The intent mechanism of the Android platform is a powerful message-passing system that allows for sharing data among components and applications. Nevertheless, it might also be used as an entry point for security attacks if incautiously employed. Attacks can be easily sent through intents to components, which can indirectly forward them to other components, and so on. In this context, this chapter proposes a model-based security testing approach to attempt to detect data vulnerabilities in Android applications. In other words,

Over the years, many networks hosted by large companies or organizations have been crippled by intrusions launched with minimal effort. Such attacks have caused the loss of millions of dollars for the company and created serious security threats. As a result, network administrators and security experts across the globe have barricaded their networks with expensive Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) to detect and take action in dealing with various network attacks. There is still a very challenging task to develop a
