    I was already running late, I didn’t have a whole lot of time to stop, or anytime at all for that matter, but every once and a while life presents itself in a way that you can’t just ignore or rush by, so I pulled over. I pulled over because it’s not everyday you see a grown man standing on the edge of a bridge looking down, and I hope part of me pulled over because its the morally right thing to do, but that’s besides the point. The bridge in which I pulled over doesn’t see much traffic anymore, they built a new one, but I liked, the old one, I liked the view, I enjoye

    In addition to knowing what is in the network and how it is protected, it is also significant to identify what types of attacks the network is vulnerable to. If the malicious traffic on the network are not determined, the new security systems would be useless. Multiple firewalls, IPS, IDS, and a file integrity system will protect the new WLAN network. Firewall will prevent network scanning and will block malicious IPs from intruding the network. This is vital as it can save a network and help the people on incident investigations. Scanning a network means that someone is looking for response

Everyone has heard of computer viruses, but the virus is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to hacking. In order to understand hackers and the crime of hacking, you must first learn the different classes of hackers and what the criminal hackers are looking for. Hopefully through a basic understanding of the threats out there, computer users will learn the importance of protecting themselves. Digital assets are often the target of a hacking attack. Whethe

    After months of research and experiments, I have concluded my discovery of space worm touch receptors is definite. Regardless of the type, sensory receptors are influenced by physical actions and various stimulus. My research and experiments show that space worm touch receptors are no different. Stimulus is a change discernible by the body (Sherwood 2004) or in my case, a space worm. Certain receptors like touch receptors respond to stimulus weakly or strongly when involved with a different stimulus (Sherwood 2004). This perfectly related to my experiment because t

    How do you secure something that is changing faster than you can fix it? The Internet has had security problems since its earliest days as a pure research project. Today, after several years and orders of magnitude of growth, is still has security problems. It is being used for a purpose for which it was never intended: commerce. It is somewhat ironic that the early Internet was design as a prototype for a high-availability command and control network that could resist outages resulting from enemy actions, yet it cannot resist college undergraduates.
