NOS Threats and Vulnerabilities

Other

  • Read Jack’s Wine and Coffee Shop – A Start-Up Case Study, linked in the Resources under the Required Resources heading.

    Deliverable

    Write 4–6 pages that describe network operating system threats and vulnerabilities that will provide the foundational information to select the appropriate technologies for the case study business.

    • Explain the network security vulnerabilities that are created through ineffective implementation of NAT, port configuration, and subnetting.
    • Describe threats and vulnerabilities specific to operating systems including:
      • Denial of service and distributed DOS/BOTS.
      • Malicious activity detection and forms of attacks.
      • Sniffing, spoofing, and session hijacking.
    • Describe the threats and adversaries that are specific to the use of wireless networks.
    • Describe the components and methods of compromising wireless networks, including the following:
      • MAC spoofing, Web app attacks, and 0-day exploits (National Centers of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance/Cyber Defense, 2013).
      • Backdoors, trojans, viruses, and wireless attacks.
      • Denial of service and distributed DOS/BOTs.
      • Session hijacking and man-in-the-middle attacks.
      • Password guessing and cracking.
      • Packet sniffing.

    Additional Requirements

    • Written communication: Written communication is free of errors that detract from the overall message.
    • APA formatting: Use current APA style and formatting guidelines.
