Computer and Network Security
This section contains computer security information and documentation.
Since computer security is such a broad subject and encompasses so many different areas of functionality, I like to think of it as being broken down into the following subcategories:
- Security protocols, their strengths, weaknesses, and how they work (How to use them for secure user authentication and data transfer).
- Being able to write security algoithms, both in mathmatical formulas and/or write the programs. Normally a mathmetician is best qualified here
- Knowing various security vulnerabilities of certain operating systems (posted in security bulletins) and knowing how to guard against them.
- Knowledge about security attacks used by hackers to break into networks and systems.
- Knowing how to set traps for those who try to break into systems.
- Knowing how to set up effective and secure firewalls to keep hackers from other networks or the internet from breaking into private networks.
This section currently includes:
- Security Recommendations - This guide is still under construction but has useful information describing attacks, limitations, and defenses. It also gives recommendations for solutions to various security problems.
- Security Procedures - Lists many computer security procedures with some examples and explanations about how to develop security procedures.
- Security Guide - This document is in the early stages and currently lists a few security functions and protocols.
