SEC 435 Week 1 DQ Latest-Strayer

You will need to create your own original thread.

The create thread button is in the upper left corner once you click on the link above.

“Session Hijacking” Select one of the following and discuss in no less than three paragraphs, and have at least one response to another student of at least one paragraph:

  • Consider the “What if” case in Chapter 1 from the Book: Web Applications and Data Servers and respond to one or more of the questions asked.
  • Research the web, and discuss any recent story concerning session hijacking. Provide summary and discussion on what might have been done to prevent such hijacking, or how such hijacking can be recognized.
  • Any current topic or article related to penetration techniques.
  • The instructor insight.

While the minimum requirement is an original and single response, one can get much more from the class by going beyond minimums and engaging in conversation with your professor or other students.  I encourage one to go beyond the minimum and those that can engage in four or more posts will truly learn much more than what is just in the physical classroom or text books.   I do give bonus points for extra work assuming quality, and good writing.

I take the rubric seriously so I grade 20 percent of the post on style, format, and writing.   So please use good paragraphs, don’t write in mounds of text, and bury ideas.   Use salutations in both the subject line and the message.   Use proper citations for any sources one uses.  Never cut and paste from the web or other source and use it by itself as an original post, or response.   Use direct quotes properly tied to your words, or if you want to share an article or other material, do so as an additional post, with proper citation.

“Web Application Threats” Select one of the following and discuss in no less than three paragraphs, and have at least one response to another student of at least one paragraph:

  • Review the attacks listed on the OWASP website, located at https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Category:Attack. Focus on selecting three attacks that you believe to be the greatest security threat, rank what you believe to be the top three greatest security threats (e.g., cookie/session poisoning, platform exploits, etc.), and provide a rationale for your rankings. Explain the key inherent dangers of the chosen threats, and indicate the key reasons why you believe such threats pose more of a risk than other current ones in existence. Justify your answer.
  • Review the attacks listed on the OWASP website, located at https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Category:Attack. Focus on selecting three attacks that you believe to be the greatest security threat, rank what you believe to be the top three greatest security threats (e.g., cookie/session poisoning, platform exploits, etc.), discuss the appropriate countermeasures that security personnel could utilize in order to minimize the damage of such threats. Determine whether or not the countermeasures that you have ranked are reactive or proactive in nature, and suggest the primary ways in which each countermeasure could assist in preventing further damage from the threats in question. Explain whether or not honeypots would assist in protecting and evaluating the three threats selected. Provide a rationale for your response.
  • Any current topic or article related to penetration techniques.
  • The instructor insight.

Note:  Reminder that you need to create your own original thread, use a proper subject, and have salutations for all posts in the subject line and message, use proper paragraphs and citations if you have sources, and that you are sharing your thoughts, not regurgitating the text or outside sources.   I encourage you to do more than just the minimum, and fully engage in conversations.

  • Any current topic or article related to penetration techniques.
  • The instructor insight.

    Describe the major concerns that information security professionals and SQL database administrators should have with SQL injection attacks. Additionally, provide the key reasons why you believe such attacks are popular among hackers, both malicious and ethical. Justify your response.
  • Suggest what you believe to be the two most critical best practices for protecting against SQL injection attacks, and establish whether or not you believe that there are significant efforts for security professionals who implement these best practices. Provide a rationale for your response.

SEC 435 Week 5 DQ Latest-Strayer

Case Study” Have an original post of no less than three or four paragraphs, and offer advice of a paragraph or two to at least one other student.  This is the proposal for your term paper due in week 9.  Papers should not be written in a one week or weekend, but should take some time to research, consider, and then draft.  Once drafted, ideally, one sleeps on the paper, so one can proof and revise one last time before submitting the final draft.  I expect a 400 level paper, so give some thought to your case study and provide me a short synopsis of what you hope to look at, why, and what you hope to learn or accomplish.

  • Research the web and find an appropriate incident related to either a successful or failed penetration testing effort, or a successful or unsuccessful hacking attempt against an organization, business or government facility. For the discussion lay out the basic details of the case, why you chose this case, and speculate on what specific lessons you learned from the case, as well as possible recommendations for future situations. This proposal should be no less than three or four paragraphs.

“Macs and Viruses” Select one of the following and discuss in no less than three paragraphs, and have at least one response to another student of at least one paragraph:

  • Review current Mac security features from Apple’s website located at http://www.apple.com/macos/security, and read the article 10 Best Antivirus for the Mac at http://techtop100.com/9-best-antivirus-for-mac-do-macs-need-antivirus-best-free-mac-antivirus. Select two tools, and research their features, functionality, provided protections, mitigated risks, costs, and any other pertinent information.
