ITD does not review system access rights. Although ITD has an access control policy establishing who is responsible for granting access to city resources such as desktop computers, servers, network devices, firewalls, business applications, and HIPAA data, the city’s external auditors recently identified an issue with access control. In the 2008 management letter, the city’s external auditors stated that the city did not have an “effective process to periodically review access groups and roles to identify inappropriate or incompatible access rights that conflict with segregation of duties for ITD.” 8 “A periodic review of access is not effectively performed at ITD for key applications.” 8 Management’s response to the external audit stated that ITD and the departments would “validate user roles twice yearly for the PeopleSoft applications (both Financials and Human Resources), the Banner system (Water), and ABM (Aviation).” 9 ITD management reported that they have begun the process for validating user roles for the applications identified by the external auditors, but not the e-service applications.

Intrusion is any set of actions that attempt to compromise the integrity, confidentiality, or availability of a resource and an intrusion detection system (IDS) is a system for the detection of such intrusions. Intrusion detection systems (IDS) are an important component of a network security infrastructure. It collects and analyzes audit data looking for anomalous or intrusive activities. As soon as suspicious event is detected an alarm is raised, so that the network administrator can react by applying suitable countermeasures.

An assessment of technology based service encounters & network security on the e health care systems of medical centers in Taiwan

[31]. E-QUAL was developed based on PZB's SERVQUAL model; the empirical research on nine purely online travel agencies and fourteen hybrid travel agencies plus related literature regarding factors for website evaluation. It includes seven aspects: contents and purposes, approach- ability, guidance, design and display, response, back- ground, personalization and customization. Based on Retailing Service Quality [32], scholars divided the service quality of online shopping into five aspects: entity's image, reliability, interpersonal interaction, problem solv- ing and policy [33]. After interviewing consumers that were in the focus group from 4 banks and distributing 250 surveys to a convenient sample of electronic banking cus- tomers, scholars divided the service quality of electronic banking into eight aspects: accuracy, safety, approachabil- ity, convenience, bank's reliability, the ability to handle complaints, personalized demand and visual modality [34]. Based on PZB's SERVQUAL model, scholars devel- oped a means to measure web-based service quality and divided it into seven aspects: visualization, reliability, response, assurance, empathy, quality of the information and communication integration [29,35].

An agent based business aware incident detection system for cloud environments

An agent based business aware incident detection system for cloud environments

Although existing recommendations (ITIL), standards (ISO 27001:5, CobiT, PCIDSS) and laws (e.g., Germanys Federal Data Protection Act) provide well-established security and privacy rulesets for data center providers, research has shown that additional regulations have to be defined for cloud environments [1,9]. In classic IT infras- tructures security audits and penetration tests are used to document a data center’s compliance to security best practices or laws. But, the major shortcoming of a tra- ditional security audit is that it only provides a snapshot of an environments’ security state at a given time (time of the audit was performed). This is adequate since clas- sic IT infrastructures don’t change that frequently. But, because of the mentioned cloud characteristics above, this is not sufficient for auditing a cloud environment. A cloud audit needs to consider the point of time when the infras- tructure changes and the ability to decide if this change is not causing a security gap or an infrastructure misuse. Knowledge of underlying business processes is needed, for example, to decide if a cloud service scales up because of a higher demand of valid business requests or a hacker misuse. As a first approach to a continuous auditing sys- tem for cloud environments we are presenting a cloud monitoring environment in this paper.

Efficient Cloud Computing with Secure Data Storage using AES

Efficient Cloud Computing with Secure Data Storage using AES

correcting codes are used to ensure both possession and irretrievability of data files on remote archive service systems. However, the number of audit challenges a user can perform is a permanent priori, and public auditability is not supported in their main scheme. Although they describe a straight forward Merkle-tree construction for public PoRs, this approach only works with encrypted data. Shacham et al.[12] Design an improved PoR scheme built from BLS signatures with full proofs of security. Similar to the construction i they use publicly verifiable homomorphic authenticators that are built from provably secure BLS signatures [19]. Public retrievability is achieved based on the elegant BLS construction. yet again, their approach does not support privacy-preserving auditing for the same reason as Shah et al.propose allowing a TPA to keep online storage onest by first encrypting the data then sending a number of pre- computed symmetric-keyed hashes over the encrypted data to the auditor. The auditors verify both the integrity of the data file and the server’s control of a previously committed decryption key. This scheme only works for encrypted files and it suffers from the auditor easy way to comply with the conference paper formatting requirements is to use this document as a template and simply type your text into it. State fullness and bounded usage, which may potentially bring in on-line burden to users when the keyed hashes are used up.

Implications of Grids, e Science and CyberInfrastructure for the DoD High Performance Computing Modernization Program

Implications of Grids, e Science and CyberInfrastructure for the DoD High Performance Computing Modernization Program

organisations that have a limited lifetime, are formed from heterogeneous ‘come as you are’ elements at short notice, and need secure and partial sharing of information. A common requirement across these programs is the need to inter- operate and integrate heterogeneous distributed systems and to work with large volumes of information and high data rates. We described this earlier under the system of systems concept. In these respects, they could benefit substantially from Grid computing concepts. However, security, resilience, flexibility and cost effectiveness are key considerations for the deployment of military Grids. It is also likely that there will be the need for multiple Grids supporting different aspects of the military enterprise, e.g. ‘heavyweight’ Grids for imagery data and ‘lightweight’ ubiquitous Grids running on the PDAs of military commanders in a headquartersthese Grids will need to be interoperable. Currently, there are a number of US military programmes exploring Grid technologies in the context of Network-Centric Warfare, for example Joint Battlespace Infosphere [JBIGrid], Expeditionary Sensor Grid [ExpSensorGrid] and the Fleet Battle Experiments [FleetGrid].

Study of the Security Enhancements in  Various E Mail Systems

Study of the Security Enhancements in Various E Mail Systems

• Signature Verification: the MTA on the receiving side will verify the signature after receiving the MAIL FROM: command by using the public system parameters, signed text i.e. sending user’s e-mail address from MAIL FROM, signature (extracted from MAIL FROM:): and the domain name of the sender. Figure 5 illustrate E-mail Processing with iSATS. iSATS using IBC to leverages identity based signature (IBS) and compared to traditional public key cryptography IBC saves the burden of managing and distributing the public keys, since publicly available unique identities are used as public keys. Also, iSATS can be integrated with tools generally used with e-mail infrastructure; this allows an incremental deployment of iSATS. The potential bottlenecks of iSATS are the computationally expensive tasks, specifically the extraction of SKs by the TA and the signature generation and verification. Through implement iSATS, there is performance with low processing overhead on different systems.

US Government Cloud Computing Technology Roadmap Volume II Release 1.0 (Draft)

US Government Cloud Computing Technology Roadmap Volume II Release 1.0 (Draft)

The three service models identified by the NIST cloud computing definition, i.e., SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS, present consumers with different types of service management operations and expose different entry points into cloud systems, which in turn also create different attack surfaces for adversaries. Hence, it is important to consider the impact of cloud service models and their different issues in security design and implementation. For example, SaaS provides users with accessibility of cloud offerings using a network connection, normally over the Internet and through a Web browser. There has been an emphasis on Web browser security in SaaS cloud system security considerations. Cloud consumers of IaaS are provided with virtual machines (VMs) that are executed on hypervisors on the hosts; therefore, hypervisor security for achieving VM isolation has been studied extensively for IaaS cloud providers that use virtualization technologies.

E commerce Systems and E shop Web Sites Security

E commerce Systems and E shop Web Sites Security

E-commerce is the online transaction of business, featuring linked computer systems of the vendor, host, and buyer. Electronic transactions involve the transfer of ownership or rights to use a good or service. E- commerce includes retail shopping, banking, stocks and bonds trading, auctions, real estate transactions, airline booking, movie rentals-nearly anything we can imagine in the real world. Capital assets of e-commerce are internet shops (e-shops). E-shops are realized as web sites with many services. In the Czech Republic the first e-shops were developing since 1995. At that time e-shop web sites were not enough safe and contained small number of user-friendly services because of absence of web sites developer experiences and knowledge and technological possibilities. Nowadays modern technologies make web sites developers possible to create intuitive, elegant and user-friendly web sites with great number of safed services.

Security of e banking systems: modelling the process of counteracting e banking fraud

Security of e banking systems: modelling the process of counteracting e banking fraud

In general, there are 2 basic phishing principles: – on a mobile phone, sometimes not even tied to an account, the bell of a bank employee or even his security service rings. The client is told about the dubious movements on the card and is asked to call the CVV - the verification code of the card’s payment system. You should never report anything, if the call was not made by the client himself by the support number, any information can be used for theft. It is better to interrupt the call and call your bank manager yourself;

Regarding the implied regulation, they apply the Indonesian Health Ministry Regulation (Permenkes) No. 269/2008 2 . In general, the legislation regulates the type of data in the medical record, process on saving and destroying the medical record and the rules on its data and privacy. However, in this audit process, there are parts of the regulation that we exclude. The reason is that the point in that part is out of the scope of this audit, particularly, the 9 th article of the Permenkes 269/2008 which is related to the saving and destroying the medical record. In that part, it is stated that “Medical records on non-hospital health care facilities must be stored for at least 2 (two) years from the last date the patient was treated.”. From that statement, we could see that this regulation is not for the hospital. Therefore, we exclude this part from the study.

Testing of the technology acceptance model in context of Yemen

Perceived usefulness was defined by Davis et al. (1989) as "the degree to which a person believes that using a particular system would enhance his or her job performance". People tend to use or not to use an application to the extent they believe that it will help them to perform their job better. Perceived usefulness explains the user's perception to the extent that the technology will improve the user's workplace performance.
