Cyrptographic attack explained
Encryption is used to protect sensitive data from a malicious hacker. This is precisely why cryptographic attacks are one of the most popular forms of cyber-attacks in the world. Successfully comprising a cryptographic system means complete and unlimited access to all the information that is being transmitted in the network.
Man-In-The-Middle Attack Prevention
In computer cryptography and cybersecurity, a man-in-the-middle attack is characterized by the presence of a foreign between two communicating parties. The third party is privy to every piece of information that is carried out and has the capability to alter the contents.
A common example of a man-in-the-middle attack involves the attacker placing himself between an unencrypted Wi-Fi and other clients. The attacker can then monitor the online activities of every client and even exhibit control over the network.
The attacker either impersonates the authentication procedure necessary for access or bypasses it altogether due to the presence of vulnerabilities. The attacker then successfully impersonates the endpoints of the network and appears completely legitimate. Most connections and protocols today employ cryptographic techniques that provide secure endpoint authentication and prevents such man-in-the-middle attacks.
Disaster Recovery Plan
Disaster recovery falls within the larger framework of IT service management. Disaster recovery is a critical aspect of system security planning. Disaster recovery is a set of policies and protocols that are to be followed when the company faces times of crisis or unforeseen disasters. Such crisis may include major cyber-attacks from hackers, loss of goods and assets due to natural disasters or systematic failures of industrial processes or equipment.
Disaster recovery is analogous to risk assessment and management and is usually considered a part of typical business continuity plans. Having a strong disaster recovery plan helps in the quick and efficient identification of IT services and processes that can be of help during times of emergencies. Disaster recovery plans are indispensable in ensuring the health of the company in the long run.
Deep and Dark Web Mysteries
When one hears the term ‘dark web,’ images like dealing with drugs or assassinations are what flood the mind. A majority of activities on it are illegal. Unbeknownst, these are not the only things the dark web is used for. The ‘deep web,’ which popularly came to be called as dark web, consists of a wealth of knowledge that is not accessible by traditional search engines. Google has indexed only 0.04 percent of the whole Internet; the rest is still a confounding mystery for us.
