Network Security Attacks Projects

Network Security Attacks Projects

Generally, security attacks of the network are referred to as the events performed by illegal users against personal or government data. The attacks are launched by an attacker to perform malicious activities over sensitive data. In recent days, many organizations let the employee access company network through their mobile devices, this also cause network vulnerability which leads to data theft or destruction. In some cases, the entire network may get destructed. Most probably, the network security attacks are classified into the following types.

This article shows you that the emerging ideas of network security attacks for pursuing projects in this field.

Types of attacks in network security

  • Active – Here, the data are monitored and modified by the attackers (damage to the content). Some of the significant active attacks are follows.
    • Routing attacks
    • Fabrication attacks
    • Impersonation attacks
    • Denial of service attacks
    • Modification attacks
  • Passive – Here, the data are monitored or eavesdropped by the attackers (no damage to the content). Some of the significant passive attacks are follows.
    • Privacy attacks
    • Eavesdropping monitoring attacks
    • Traffic analysis attacks
    • Camouflages attacks

Currently, the types of networks and the behaviors of each type of network are different. Due to the heterogeneity in the network, the attacker’s behaviors and activities are different and varied over time and location. Some of the common attack patterns are listed as follows. 

Important Patterns for Network Security Attacks

  • Attacks occur by injecting the false information at the network elements (e.g. router / gateway)
  • Web browser, social engineering activities in websites for malicious information sharing
  • Spoofing, eavesdropping of internal network i.e. insider threats
  • Attacks occur by non-authenticated devices with spoofed IP and MAC address
  • Group of attackers target the network by deny the services from the service providers or admin

In today’s world, everything is connected with the network for efficient data sharing which eventually increases the digital data volume. Though it is beneficial to the current digital society, it has some threats of attacks for data exploitation. Therefore, one and all are demanding the appropriate security technologies for shielding their data from attackers. However, so many mechanisms are invented still looking better. As a result, it increases the demand for Network Security Attacks Projects in the research community to bring absolute security solutions against network attacks.

Performance Metrics for Network Security

    We need to optimize the performance of the network through the quality of service (QoS), and service level agreement metrics (SLAs). All these metrics are very important to analyze the performance of the networks and some of them include in the following, 

  • Packet Loss Ratio
    • It represents the sum of data packets that are successfully sent from the source to the destination which must never drop at the intermediate nodes and the destination. This metric provides network performance improvement while monitoring the packets in transmission. However, less than 1% of packet loss is allowed for any type of wired and wireless network. 
  • Latency
    • It represents the time delay and network latency which is measured in data transmission and the measure of the successful packets transmitted from the source to the destination node. However, 0 delays represent the successful network performance, and also it must be in milliseconds. In general, the physical distance between the nodes causes a huge delay, and also long routing path represents the huge delay and also device configuration characteristics cause the huge delay. 
  • Jitter
    • This metric can be computed during the real-time applications running and execution. In general, packets flow gets affected with higher jitter and this is due to any network issues or disturbance in packets transmission and acknowledgments. 
  • Bandwidth and Throughput
    • Both these metrics are important in measuring the network performance during the attacker’s presence. Since most of the attacker’s behaviors intention is to exhaust the resources such as energy, bandwidth, and power and hence measuring the bandwidth indicates the number of packets sent with the available bandwidth and also throughput significantly improved when the available bandwidth is reached.
