Example text

As each new system is hacked, the attacker performs the steps that were outlined previously to gather additional system and password information. Hackers try to scan and exploit a single system or a whole set of networks and usually automate the whole process. In addition, hackers will cover their tracks either by deleting log entries or falsifying them. Thinking Outside the Box In 2005, David Sternberg hacked the Postal Bank in Israel by physically breaking into one of the bank’s branches in Haifa and connecting a wireless access point in the branch’s IT infrastructure.

Attackers are also motivated by government or industrial espionage. The Stuxnet worm, whose earliest versions appear to date to 2009, is an example. This worm differs from its malware “cousins” in that it has a specific, damaging goal: to traverse industrial control systems, such as supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, so that it can reprogram the programmable logic controllers, possibly disrupting industrial operations. This worm was not created to gather credit card numbers to sell off to the highest bidder, or to sell fake pharmaceuticals.

In the commercial world, connectivity is no longer optional, and the possible risks of connectivity do not outweigh the benefits. Therefore, it is very important to enable networks to support security services that provide adequate protection to companies that conduct business in a relatively open environment. This section explains the breadth of assumptions and challenges to establish and maintain a secure network environment. Basic Security Assumptions Several new assumptions have to be made about computer networks because of their evolution over the years: • Modern networks are very large, very interconnected, and run both ubiquitous protocols (such as IP) and proprietary protocols.
