Network Demilitarized Zone (DMZ)

Contributed by Jack Webb

In today’s information security, it is necessary to take advantage of all possible security options available to IT professionals. One of these options is network demilitarized zone or DMZ. A DMZ is the process of setting up a semi-secure network segment that houses all publicly accessible resource. This paper will cover the purpose of DMZ and its benefits in relation to security. It will cover the types and levels of DMS and security measure used within. This paper will also cover the differences between hardware and virtual DMZs as well as any commercial or vendor support for the creation of a DMZ.

Mobile Device Management and Best Practices

Contributed by Adam Phelps

With the year 2014 slowly coming and quickly fading, the need to have the latest and greatest mobile device has become the new standard. Wireless speeds are increasing, Random Access Memory (RAM) is tripling, and processing time is becoming faster with half the size and power than in previous models. Moore’s law has been proven yet again. But what does this mean for those who use these fast devices for work through a company loan? How do you limit what an employee’s personal devices can access on the corporate network? What happens to the data when they leave? Who governs these rules and what is to become of them? In this paper, I plan to define what it takes to have good Mobile Device Management (MDM) policies and procedures in a corporate setting, and what a company should do to follow MDM best practices.

Securing a Virtual Environment

Contributed by Brian Fowler

In today’s world many corporations are moving into the realm of virtualization. Although this new technology allows companies to reproduce many different virtual servers and desktops, it also creates new problems in the ways of security. In this paper we will take a look at exactly what virtualization is, as it is applies to servers and desktops. Through this we will learn of the various problem and vulnerabilities that virtualization will cause. Knowing the problems with virtual systems, we will answer the real question how can a virtual environment be secured. Follow with me as we take an in depth at virtualization and the means of securing it.

Security Needs in Embedded Systems

Contributed by Anoop MS

The paper discusses the hardware and software security requirements in an embedded device that are involved in the transfer of secure digital data. The paper gives an overview on the security processes like encryption/decryption, key agreement, digital signatures and digital certificates that are used to achieve data protection during data transfer. The paper also discusses the security requirements in the device to prevent possible physical attacks to expose the secure data such as secret keys from the device. The paper also briefs on the security enforced in a device by the use of proprietary security technology and also discusses the security measures taken during the production of the device.
