Articles: Showing

Training for Information Assurance ( Donald Welch, Daniel Ragsdale, Wayne Schepens ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2002-04)

- The US is at great risk from terrorist manipulation of the intangible bits and bytes of cyberspace. US military institutions are already preparing for cyberspace terrorism and warfare by educating cadets in information assurance.In January 2000, the US Military Academy at West Point created an information assurance course that centers on a competitive, hands-on defensive project: protect a real network from real attack.This project forced the cadets to pull together what they know theoretically and apply it to a real network under attack without risking the damage that mistakes would cause on a live network.The authors encourage other organizations to follow their lead by conducting similar competitive exercises.

Managing Software Security Risks ( Gary McGraw ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2002-04)

Open Source Security: Opportunity or Oxymoron? ( George Lawton ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2002-03)

Improving Security Using Extensible Lightweight Static Analysis ( David Evans, David Larochelle ; IEEE Software Magazine 2002-01)

- Most security attacks exploit in-stances of well-known classes of implementation flaws. Developers could detect and eliminate many of these flaws before deploying the software, yet these problems persist with disturbing frequency-not be-cause the security community doesn't sufficiently understand them but because techniques for preventing them have not been integrated into the software development process. This article describes an extensible tool that uses lightweight static analysis to detect common security vulnerabilities (including buffer overflows and format string vulnerabilities).

Correctness by Construction: Developing a Commercial Secure System ( Anthony Hall, Roderick Chapman ; IEEE Software Magazine 2002-01)

- Praxis Critical Systems recently developed a secure certification authority for smart cards that had to satisfy performance and usability requirements while meeting stringent security constraints. The authors used a systematic process from requirements elicitation through formal specification, user interface prototyping, rigorous design, and coding to ensure these objectives' achievement. They show how a process that achieves normal commercial productivity can deliver a highly reliable system that meets all its throughput and us-ability goals.

Building Software Securely from the Ground Up ( Anup K. Ghosh, Chuck Howell, James A. Whittaker ; IEEE Software Magazine 2002-01)

Trust-Based Security in Pervasive Computing Environments ( LalanaKagal, TimFinin, AnupamJoshi ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2001-12)

Does Open Source Improve System Security? ( Brian Witten, Carl Landwehr, Michael Caloyannides ; IEEE Software Magazine 2001-09)

- Most commercial software producers guard access to the source code of their systems, making it difficult for anyone outside their organizations to apply a variety of measures that could potentially improve system security. But since an attacker could also examine public source code to find flaws, would source code access be a net gain or loss for security? The question goes beyond the technical issues involved because publishing source code reveals intellectual property and therefore affects the producer's business model. We consider this question from several perspectives and tentatively conclude that having source code available should on balance work in favor of system security.

Facing the Challenge of Wireless Security ( Sandra Kay Miller ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2001-07)

Digital Government Security Infrastructure Design Challenges ( James Joshi, Arif Ghafoor, Walid G. Aref, Eugene H. Spafford ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2001-02)

- Designing security systems for a digital government's multidomain environment requires a careful balancing act between providing convenient access and carefully monitoring permissions.

API-Level Attacks on Embedded Systems ( Mike Bond, Ross Anderson ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2001-010)

- A growing number of embedded systems use security processors to distribute control, billing, and metering among devices with intermittent or restricted online connectivity. The more obvious examples include smart cards, microcontrollers used as value counters in postal meters and vending machines, and cryptographic processors used in networks of automatic teller machines and point-of-sale equipment to encipher customers' personal identification numbers. Recently, a whole new family of attacks has been discovered on the application programming interfaces these security processors use. These API attacks extend and generalize the known types of attack that target authentication protocols. Such attacks present valid commands to the security processor but in an unexpected sequence, thereby obtaining results that break the security policy its designer envisioned. Designing security APIs is a new research field with significant industrial and scientific importance. The poor design of present interfaces prevents many tamper-resistant processors from achieving their potential and leaves a disappointing dependency on procedural controls—the design of which involves subtleties likely to exceed the grasp of most implementers. It is unclear that a "generalized" API will work. The natural accretion of functionality presents security with one of its greatest enemies. Yet, getting the API right is relevant for more than just cryptoprocessors. The API is where cryptography, protocols, operating-system access controls, and operating procedures all come together—or fail to. It truly is a microcosm of the security engineering problem.

Guest Editors' Introduction: Embedded Security: Challenges and Concerns ( William A. Arbaugh, Leendert van Doorn ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2001-010)

- The proliferation of embedded devices is bringing security and privacy issues to the fore. We must ensure that we have learned from past problems and proactively attempt to prevent them in the future.

Search Engines as a Security Threat ( Julio César Hernández, José María Sierra, Arturo Ribagorda, Benjamín Ramos ; IEEE Computer Magazine 2001-010)

- Search engines index a huge number of Web pages and other resources. Hackers can use these engines to make anonymous attacks, find easy victims, and gain the knowledge necessary to mount a powerful attack against a network. Further, search engines can help hackers avoid identification. One reason so few hacking attempts get reported is that there are so many of them. Tracerouting a hacker's IP address to its source often ends at a hop completely unrelated to the hacker's actual ISP or local network, which makes reporting the hacker to the upstream provider difficult. Search engines are dangerous largely because users are careless. In the age of DSL and broadband cable accounts, users often keep their machines turned on and connected to the Internet for days. Most of them would be shocked to find that potential hackers target their machines up to several times a minute. Most home-machine hack attempts seek to make their targets zombies in a distributed denial-of-service attack. Search engines make discovering candidate machines almost effortless. It isn't possible to secure all channels against hackers trying to penetrate a vulnerable system. But search engines needn't be wide-open channels that continue to help hackers find and penetrate weak systems.

System Insecurity in the Internet Age ( John Michener ; IEEE Software Magazine 1999-07)

- The general-purpose computing environment that characterizes the PC and Internet was not designed for privacy or integrity. Surveying a variety of Internet targets and likely attackers, the author discusses how these systems can be hardened to survive attacks.

Software Security in an Internet World: An Executive Summary ( Timothy J. Shimeall, John J. McDermott ; IEEE Software Magazine 1999-07)

- Businesses of all sizes use the Internet for sales, purchasing, and collaboration. They all need reliable systems. Here are a few steps we can take now to ensure the security of software and thus to sustain the growth of Internet commerce.

Software Assurance for Security ( Gary McGraw ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1999-04)

Surviving Information Warfare Attacks ( Sushil Jajodia, Paul Ammann, Catherine D. McCollum ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1999-04)

- In today's heavily networked environment, you must guard against both obvious and subtle intrusions that can delete or corrupt vital data. Ideally, your security measures will allow critical system operation even when you're under attack.

Integrating Security into the Curriculum ( Cynthia E. Irvine, Shiu-Kai Chin, Deborah Frincke ; IEEE Computer Magazine 1998-12)

- Computer security can be used as a vehicle to achieve accreditation goals for computer science and engineering programs, while at the same time engaging students with relevant, exciting topics. The authors' approach, based on educational outcomes, illustrates that security topics can contribute to an engineering program by fostering all skills required to produce graduates capable of critical thinking.
