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.

Intrusion Detection

Contributed by Marlicia Pollard

For this term paper I will be discussing the subject of Intrusion detection. I will be going in depth as to what steps one could take to prevent intrusions on their network and what different signs to look for if they think that an intrusion has occurred. There are two main types of Intrusion Detection Systems, which are Host based and Network based. There are many different pros and cons to both of these systems. Intrusion Detection Systems are being developed and constantly modified to try to stop and limit the amount of attacks on network.

Evaluation of ChromeOS in Schools from an Information Security Management Perspective

Contributed by Jonathan Fortune

In the last 25 years the K-12 public education system in the United States has seen a dramatic shift in its use of technology in the classroom. Both school districts and individual schools are increasingly faced with the decision about what kind of technology will be used inside, and in some cases, outside the classroom. Schools are increasingly seeking the goal of 1:1 technology, meaning that there is a device for each student in the school. This along with, in many cases, significant resources allocated for purchasing devices such as Title 1 funding for low-income schools, has resulted in an unprecedented increase in the amount of personal devices within public schools.

Contributed by Velma Edwards

Cloud computing is the hottest topic in Technology these days. Many businesses have started outsourcing there IT to the cloud because of the benefits that cloud offers. Cloud computing has given a business a new way to effectively improved business processes with less spending in IT budget. Enterprises are quickly moving from buying to renting what they need, but the biggest concern about cloud computing are security and privacy. In this paper, I am going to discuss the definition of cloud computing and how it works, types and services, advantages and disadvantages, security issues and concern, ways to protect data in the cloud, and examples of free encryption software that we can use to protect our data in the cloud.
