Cyber Security projects for students.
Cyber security projects provide a correct solution for information, application security and disaster area communication. Method of safeguarding computer, programs, networks and data from an intruder is cyber security. Primary goal of cyber security project is to protect data both in transit and at rest. It’s also referred to as information security, to protect server, computer, and hardware from unauthorized access. Evolving quick and frequent nature of security risks are the frequent problems faced in cyber security. Cyber security systems are also used by the government & educational system and internet communication system, business corporate environment to preserve & protect data from various risks. Cyber security project need is that, with the growing volume and sophistication of cyber attacks, ongoing attention is required to protect sensitive business and personal information, as well as safeguard national security.
Techniques used in Cyber security Projects.
Malware protection: To analyze attack codes malware protection program is established.
Internet gateway and firewalls: The internet gateways and firewalls watch out all the network entrance. All the malicious software trying to enter to secure network are drained to block and detect the malware activities web filtering, web proxy, firewall policies and content checking are used.
Secure configuration: Hardware devices, operating system are designed with low security
Patch management: In software program it is the latest version to prevent infected software programs.
User access control: Normal user’s privileges are limited by providing access control policy.
White listing and execution control: Our system is protected from unknown software that is installed automatically as CD drives, autorun on USB.
Different types of attacks in Cyber Systems.
Malicious attacks: Malicious functions are used by cyber criminals to delete, modify and alter a secure data which is known as malwares. E.g. of malwares are:
Worms: To weak down and damage the operating system worms are used. The unsecure network links and computer are affected. No types of software program are required.
Spyware: Overall computer control are taken down in which personal information are collected without users knowledge.
Bruce force attack: A difficult secure password is cracked in Bruce force attack. Here the attacker tries out the possible combination of numbers letters and symbols to derive the correct password.
Viruses: Files or computer information are corrupted or modified. By a single software program the virus enter to the system. From one computer to the other the virus spread by attacking the files in the computer.
Trojans: By backdoor of a computer Trojans enter the computer that stole or damage the personal information. As an anti virus program Trojan act which affect the computers information.
Password attacks: On cracking user’s password the attacks are focused. By following alphanumeric procedure the user must protect the password.
Dictionary attack: To crack out the password attackers use dictionary. To derive the password attackers provide an improper word in the dictionary field.
Applications of cyber security Projects.
Cyber security projects plays on important roles in various applications. It acts as a prominent technology in the future generation to protect our national defense, communication system, critical infrastructure and industries.
- Online banking.
- Mail services.
- Smart health system.
- Social networks.
- Automatic heating & cooling system.
- Network security.
- Electronic marketplaces.
Types of cyber Attack.
Cyber war: Cyber wars are carried out by nation for the purpose of disturbing and hacking data’s of neighboring countries. Advanced persistent threats are used for extracting the countries data.
Cybercrime: Group of members or individuals are attempt cyber crime with an attitude to extract money. In place of credit & debit card hacking or the crack online password cyber crime occurs.
Cyber threats: For illegal activities criminals, spies and terrorists use cyber based technology as to manipulate the data, to deny the distributed services or attack a systems security.
9 D’s Concepts in Cyber Security Projects.
Cyber security projects use 9D’s concept to avoid DDoS attack problems. 9D’s are
- Deter attacks,
- Detect attacks,
- Drive up difficulty,
- Differentiate protections,
- Dig beneath the threat,
- Diffuse protection throughout the payload,
- Distract with decoys,
- Divert attackers to other targets,
- Depth of defense.
Phishing attack, watering hole attack, web application attacks, zero-day attacks, mobile device malware, and malicious insiders attacks are prevented by using the cyber security projects.
clear demonstration of the project was given by the staffs.I am very happy with my project output.
The project team helped a lot to develop a project with innovative ideas.provided quick responses for students.
I gained lot of knowledge about the technologies with my projects. Thanks a lot.
Their technical support was excellent. They explained about the my project clearly and with all patience.
