There is an alternative approach which can be taken if protection of the applica- tion rather than the data is the primary requirement, and that is to look at porting the code, forms and so on to a standalone Visual Basic application rather than Access itself. The move towards fully implementing VBA in the latest releases of MSAccess has made this task even easier. By taking the code and the forms out of the database completely, not only do these objects become more secure, it also facilitates the use of additional tools and techniques. For example, there are additional data grid controls, including VideoSoft’s excellent VSFlexGrid Pro (see Figure 3), which offer functionality far in advance of those supplied as part of Microsoft Access. VSFlexGrid also supports ADO and OLEDB support as well as DAO, and can therefore be used for all types of application development. Drag and drop, the ability to easily merge cells, automatic totalling and so on mean that the application is freed from the constraints of the controls supplied by Microsoft. Where the front-end application is built on a pure Visual Basic platform, the data still resides in an MDB database file. Similarly, for an Access database using a front-end MDE file, the data sits in a back-end MDB file. In both situations steps need to be taken to secure the MDB file using the methods detailed earlier.
In July and August 2003, they conducted a sur- veillance of the USAMRIID. The tactical informa- tion collected revealed similar problems. A large number of uniformed personnel made them very nervous. It just so happened that during their sur- veillance the USAMRID was conducting an anti- terrorism threat exercise, which also made them nervous. Additional security measures made it even more obvious that this site was well protected. There were many lights and security structures. They used barriers during the exercise. There were consistent access control procedures, not only at the building but also in the streets leading up to the building. In addition, there was a visible use of guards and posts. Their assessment was that this location was too diffi- cult.
■ Planning, implementing and maintaining a security framework We look at several aspects of creating an effective security framework for your organization’s network. First, we look at how to plan and implement Active Directory security. This includes such measures as physically securing domain controllers, securing the schema, managing cross-forest security relationships, account security and imple- menting Active Directory access controls. Next, we discuss the issues and proce- dures involved in planning and implementing wireless security.We’ll provide an overview of the terminology and concepts relating to 802.11 wireless technologies and you’ll learn about authenticators and supplicants, as well as how wireless net- working works “under the hood.”We’ll discuss authentication methods for wireless networks, including such authentication subtypes as open system and shared key. You’ll learn about the protocols generally used for wireless authentication, including the Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP), EAP-Transport Layer Security (EAP-TLS), EAP-MS-CHAPv2, and the Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol (PEAP).We’ll also talk about using IAS with wireless. We’ll address wireless security issues such as common insecure default settings (administrative password, SSID, and WEP settings) and the weaknesses of Wired Equivalent Privacy protocol (WEP) encryption, as well as how WEP can be made more secure. Next, we’ll move on to discuss security monitoring, and we’ll address object based access control and security policies, including password policies, Kerberos policies, account lockout policies, user rights and the use of security tem- plates.We’ll also talk about security auditing, and you’ll learn to set the auditing policy, modify the security log settings and audit objects such as files or folders. In the next section, you’ll learn about planning a Change and Configuration
Why would you even want this? When it comes to a critical IoT system such as a net- work of industrial machines in a large factory in Shenzhen, the security system of the British Museum, or simply own collection of smart devices at home, you certainly don’t want these networks to be open to anyone. But when it comes to public data such as data.gov initiatives, real-time traffic/weather/pollution conditions in a city, or a group of sensors deployed in a jungle or a volcano, it would be great to ensure that the general public or researchers anywhere in the world could access that data. This would enable anyone to create new innovative applications with it and possibly gener- ate substantial economic, environmental, and social value. Another use case is the smart hotel scenario presented in chapter 1, where hotel guests (and only they) should have access to some services and devices in their room (and only there) during their stay (and only then). Because the public infrastructure is becoming not only digital but also pervasive, the earlier we could build, deploy, and scale those systems while maxi- mizing the ability to share data between devices, users, and applications, the better it would be for all of us. How to share this data in secure and flexible way is what Layer 3 provides, as shown in figure 9.1.
An effective network security plan is developed with the understanding of security issues, potential attackers, needed level of security, and factors that make a network vulnerable to attack . The steps involved in understanding the composition of a secure network, internet or otherwise, is followed throughout this research endeavor. To lessen the vulnerability of the computer to the network there are many products available. These tools are encryption, authentication mechanisms, intrusion ‐ detection, security management and firewalls. Businesses throughout the world are using a combination of some of these tools. “Intranets” are both connected to the internet and reasonably protected from it. The internet architecture itself leads to vulnerabilities in the network. Understanding the security issues of the internet greatly assists in developing new security technologies and approaches for networks with internet access and internet security itself. The types of attacks through the internet need to also be studied to be able to detect and guard against them. Intrusion detection systems are established based on the types of attacks most commonly used. Network intrusions consist of packets that are introduced to cause problems for the following reasons:
The five capital framework of SRL is seen as a more effective reflection of development than income as it reflects both the ability to accumulate wealth and the capabilities (or assets) that households can deploy to secure a living. These assets are also under the control of the households and are the basis for giving people greater choice over the directions that their livelihoods take. The concept of sustainable livelihoods is increasingly being accepted as providing both a basis for understanding the nature of poverty and for identifying the types of strategies that can reduce poverty in an effective and sustainable manner using different types of assets/capital. Akter and Rahaman (2010) concluded that irrespective of regional differences in opportunities, people in urban squatters appear nearly equally insecure. This does not mean that the same intervention strategy is equally applicable everywhere. There are geographical differences in the component indicators. Access to assets/capital endowment should be taken into consideration to design programmes. Areas where land/housing/ponds more accessible, livestock/fisheries based livelihoods may be encouraged. Education enhancing policies are suitable for everywhere. To conclude, a multi-sectoral integrated strategy of promoting agricultural and non-agricultural activities in the rural areas embedded in the local conditions and institutions has to be adopted to meet the challenge of sustainable development in the rural areas.
The markets that are flexible tend to have a lot of security challenges. Applications that are developed and integrated in smartphones are rough build permission systems, can invade privacy, can consist of malwares and have low security models which could led to misuse of the data on the phones as well as other applications that might contain extremely important data which could be misused. For example, an application could access the crucial information like passwords stored in the phone or access all the contacts on the phone. Markets are not in a state to provide high level security in more than a perfunctory way. Due to this, malicious applications can easily get into the application market.
security . Even though information systems security auditing ensures that an organization’s security policies, procedures, and regulations are effective, auditing is not performed on the employees, instead their adherence to these audited policies is automatically assumed . Thus, it can be seen that despite the overall understanding that the human factor should be taken into consideration in information security management (ISM), most security solutions available today still rely on purely technical measures to enforce information security. Yet, people may easily bypass technological controls and restrictions such as access control by revealing their authentication information to others. Vroon and von Solms  state that: “Human behavior is not performed according to a set of written rules, but according to the personality of the individual… However, this behavior can be categorized.”
Service quality has been identified as a critical success factor for organizations to build their competitive advantage and increase their competitiveness. Pioneering work by Parasuraman et al. (1985) led to a list of ten determinants (reliability; responsiveness; competence; access; courtesy; communication; credibility; security; understanding the customer; and tangibles) of service quality as a result of their focus group studies with service providers and customers which subsequently resulted in the development of the SERVQUAL instrument with these ten attributes distilled into five overall dimensions of service quality. (Parasuraman et al., 1988, 1991):
• Consider agent-based approaches. Although agentless approaches may involve fewer requirements for management, there are certain needs that can only be fulfilled through agent-based approaches. Scanning, patching, reporting, and suggesting improvement actions work best when agents leverage administrative access for digging deep into system processes. This is particularly the case when other securing mechanisms—such as those discussed in the earlier bullet points—are being used in the environment.
Many forms of network services utilize caching to improve their performance. An example is the Domain Name System (DNS), in which DNS servers cache name resolution requests from clients in order to answer repeated requests more quickly. DNS cache poi soning can be prevented by patching DNS servers with the latest versions of their software, but because of the distributed nature of DNS and its use of recursive queries, cache poisoning can only be prevented by a cooperative effort of the entire Internet community, including agen cies responsible for managing top-level domains. Another example is the address resolution protocol (ARP), a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Proto col (TCP/IP) protocol that resolves Internet Protocol (IP) addresses into Media Access Control (MAC)–layer addresses. ARP caches resolved address mappings to reduce unnecessary network traffic and speed commu nications between hosts on the network. Both of these protocols are subject to cache poisoning, in which spoofed packets are used to modify cached information so that future requests for such information result in misdirected traffic.
Patients and plan members generally have a right to view and receive a copy of their PHI in a designated record set. Each BA and CE or upstream BA must agree contractually whether the BA has PHI in a designated record set as determined by the original CE and, if so, how and by whom requests for access and copies will be handled. The Omnibus Rule strengthens individuals’ right to receive electronic copies when PHI is in electronic form, and the right to have their PHI
misconfigured system settings, but where should your network defense begin? Some think that focusing on the signaling network (SS7/SIGTRAN) is best, although doing so leaves your customer management, transmission, switching, access, mobile and intelligent networks open to a wide array of attacks that can be carried out by even novice hackers. Yes, SS7/SIGTRAN is important, but a partial approach that ignores other vulnerabilities leaves opportunities for hackers to break in.
If your Web application server does not recognize ZIP files located in the WEB-INF/ lib directory, you can change the extension of the file to .jar ; ZIP and JAR compression algorithms are compatible (JAR files simply include a manifest with metainformation about the archive). However, some developers choose to unzip the file and then create an uncompressed JAR file by using the jar tool with the -0 command option. Both compressed and uncompressed JAR files are supported in a CLASSPATH , but classes from an uncompressed JAR file can load faster. See http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.1/ docs/tooldocs/tools.html for platform-specific documentation on the Java archive tool. As a final note, if security is also important in your database transmissions, see http://download-west.oracle.com/docs/cd/B10501_01/java.920/a96654/ advanc.htm , for ways to encrypt traffic over your JDBC connections. To encrypt the traffic from the Web server to the client browser, use SSL (for details, see the chap- ters on Web application security in Volume 2 of this book).
Abstract—Authenticating a legitimate user is a trivial task, which is involved in a door lock system, safe lock and also in ATM transactions while accessing bank accounts to secure personal information. Security is a major concern due to large number of criminal and malicious activities. For better understanding let's consider the security feature of an ATM machine which uses the access card along with its PIN for verification. Now this basic level of security provided by the PIN can be enhanced along with fingerprint verification. In the proposed system we have ingrained the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) modem that connects to the core controller. It generates a one-time password (four digit) that is sent to the primary user’s mobile number when the user (primary user or secondary user) enrolls the fingerprint. The fingerprints of the secondary user along with the cardholder (primary user) are saved inside the database. Every fingerprint entered is validated by the database. The four digit PIN should be enrolled using a keypad. Further, the transaction is completed on entering the exact information. In case the cardholder is unable to do the transaction the system also provides a facility for fingerprint identification of the nominee. Since biometric features are unique; the proposed system will solve the issue of account security. This system can be designed using ARM7 LPC2148 as a core controller. It also uses SM630 fingerprint module to capture fingerprints, which consists of an optical sensor and DSP processor. This system can be integrated with any application because of the uniqueness provided with fingerprints. Additional convenience is provided with low power requirement alongside portability.
Also, users do not require any addition software or tools for it to connect it accurately in order to provide authentication. This technique is helpful for connect with database programming system and it save the extra time which is wasted for connect with different Sheets i.e. Excel Sheet and other Style Sheets and we connect the database with this programming tool and access the data.
Comprehensive system wide event viewer provides instant feedback on card access traffic, system administration changes and status updates on system arm/disarm. System activity is stored as historical data and can be retrieved through comprehensive built-in reporting tools.
1) Software-as-a-Service"(SaaS): We are provided with access to application software often referred to as on-demand software. We don't have to worry about the installation, setup and running of the application. Service provider will do that for us. We just have to pay and use it through some client. Examples: Google Apps, Microsoft Office 365.The simplest example to understand is e-mail.
