Qijun Gu, Peng Liu, and Chao-Hsien Chu, Pennsylvania State University
Nowadays, wired networks, especially the Internet, have already become a platform to support not only high-speed data communication, but also powerful distributed computing for a variety of personal and business processes every day. However, the principles for designing and developing a network mainly targeted at providing connection and communication capabilities, until a series of security “disasters” happened on the Internet recently as shown in Figure 1. As a result, without making security an inherent part of the network design and development process, existing networks are very vulnerable to cyber-attacks because of various security vulnerabilities. Such vulnerabilities, when being exploited by the hacker, can motivate the development of a variety of hacking techniques. ...
