Network security is used to handle the protection process for the sensitive information possessions on the active network. For the data communication process, the different types of mechanisms improved the primary service to craft network security research topics. The network security threat has two types such as active threats and passive threats.

What are the limitations of network security?

  • Internet Attacks
  • Different types of Threats
  • Various kinds of  Attacks
  • Security issues in Different Layers
  • Attack Mitigation

Network Security Vulnerabilities and Attacks

Unauthorized access is the basic vulnerability is subsisting in wired and wireless networks. The wireless network includes a wired network in a less secured process and the wired network has simply access in the absence of the physical connection.

  • Spoofing physical verifications of the justifiable host and then it is used for the initiation of man in the middle attack and the stealing data
  • For the steal valuable information the sniffing data packets are used
  • The legitimate users in the network for the flooding process in the network medium

What are the steps in launching an attack?

  • Launching Attack
    • By using the compromised nodes, the victim machines are aimed for the attacker’s launch
  • Information Gathering
    • For ensuring attack, the vulnerability information in the network is are the main anticipation for the attacker’s attempts
  • Cleaning Up
    • The attackers attempt for eradication process and the log files from the victim machines
  • Assessing Vulnerability
    • The attackers attempt for the negotiation process and then collects vulnerability information from the network the ensuring attacks

How does the attack packet look?

            Normally, vulnerability is not demonstrative for the most normal packets in the 12 byte CM header with the huge length of the packet. Attackers send the packets along with the UDP length field.
