NTP Time Server Security Solutions

Image
The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is an Internet protocol designed to propagate accurate time around a computer network. NTP utilises UDP over TCP/IP to synchronise network time clients to an accurate time reference. This article describes the security aspects of the NTP protocol and specifically using MD5 keys to authenticate a time server.

The Network Time Protocol may be used to synchronise many time critical processes on distributed computers across a network. The NTP protocol is therefore a potential security risk. Hackers or malicious users could attempt to disrupt system synchronisation by attempting to modify or replicate NTP time stamps.

Luckily, NTP has an integral security feature to thwart attempts to tamper with system time synchronisation. NTP can use MD5 encrypted keys to authenticate time stamps received from a time server. Network time clients and devices can utilise secure keys to authenticate time stamps and ensure their source of origin.

Online Proxies Server Security

Image
One of the major problems faced by the internet is security. Spy ware, Trojan horses, viruses, malware, hacking and ad ware are some of the main issues. Most internet users don't want their credit card info and passwords to become visible to others. Nothing could offer 100% security.

Proxy servers hide your IP through unique numbers for every system. As it is static, one can't change it when messing up things. For hackers who find out the IP, they can get all info in case you are unlucky. Hence, it becomes highly important to hide the number.

Directions

While clicking on a button or link, the proxy browser sends information to web servers. When you have proxy at hand, the information is initially sent to the proxy server, and thereafter to the web server. In case the web server retrieves the IP, it would usually be of the proxy server.

It also functions from web server to computer. A major counter part of such proxies is that the proxy server owner could see all data (including cr…

Internet Security - Do We Need It?

Image
The use of personal interaction in everyday life is a thing of the past. People these days relies or even worst are now dependable upon the use of computers via the internet. In general, computers are being used to perform errands in business, financial transactions and even in private agendas from personal communication to shopping for groceries, paying bills, etc.

These internet security programs poses as barricades that would block the access of ha ckers by means of pre-programmed agendas. They would scrutinize the potential hacker/threat as it passes through the random tests of the so-called security programs eliminating all possibilit…

A Brief Survey of Online File Storage

In the business world, the need for reliable, accessible backup of corporate data is a constant one. In the past - and even today - many companies opt for magnetic tape backup systems to protect their data. Others employ a RAID-based system, which stands for Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks, which is an umbrella term for backing up your data across multiple hard disks. Tape backups, while popular, are prone to a number of problems including tape wear-and-tear, limited intermediate backups, and a lack of data integrity. The RAID method offers a more attractive solution; however, most businesses like to keep a copy of their vital data offsite.

In recent years, we have seen the growth of offsite, automatic or semi-automatic backup services that offer consumers an alternative to in-house backups. Traditionally, online file storage suffered from a lack of bandwidth and prohibitive storage costs. With the development and dissemination of broadband technology, online data storage costs de…

The move to digital photography has created both opportunities and challenges for photographers. While there is now the possibility to present clients with greater choice and selection due to the reduced cost of shooting digital, photographers must grapple with how to deliver and manage ever increasing numbers of large files. This article gives a quick overview of the key issues that photographers need to address when deciding how best to share files online with their clients.

1. Security: Hey, those aren't my files!

All file sharing solutions emphasize security when it comes to physically safeguarding your files, that however is just the start. There must be a way to handle sharing among multiple clients where each client has access to their files and no others; this requirement is one good reason why FTP servers should be avoided. Security levels should be configurable by client; requiring the use of passwords can be a potential roadblock for clients the first time they use your s…

File Sharing With and Without Borders

No longer is it sufficient to send a postcard as you traverse various regions throughout your holiday travels. Take a quick photo on your mobile and send the image as a file to family and friends.

Common methods to share files with others start with the humble email and its option for attachments. Since web email providers lifted the ceiling limit on mailbox sizes, the magpie nature in all of us hoard all sorts of files received and sent. The thumb drive is another piece of staple accessory for most computer users. Some have even taken on to wearing them as costume jewelry or managing them like a prison guard's ring of keys as they walk around with a bunch of drives dangling from a lanyard. This veritable invention, also known as the flash drive, pen drive or memory stick, is excellent for file sharing. Whoever thought up this innovation ought to be enshrine…

How Cloud Storage Works

Image
More and more major online players have demonstrated how effective cloud storage can be, most notably Google Docs and Amazon S3 services. Since then, cloud storage has gained a lot more attention. What was once just a fad in storage now has become a staple. However, many people and most businesses still have no idea how cloud storage works, let alone whether or not it would be a benefit to utilize. Here is a quick look at what this new type of storage is and how it works.

What is Cloud Storage?

Cloud online storage is actually a small part of a much bigger picture - cloud computing. In general, cloud online storage means that you will be storing your data off site, normally through a 3rd party vendor. By using a remote database and an internet connection, you can access all of your data, without having to worry about your own hard drive space. In general, the concept of virtual storage has several potential benefits. The biggest benefit is that there is no limit to how much data your ca…

ASUS Looks to Enter the Cloud Storage Market

Image
The word is out, individuals and businesses are turning to the cloud for data storage. For many, the primary reason is that the cloud is the easiest, surest way to back up photos, e-mails, documents and especially data. Others choose the cloud because of freed up space - the cloud makes a great storage option if the sheer volume of data on your computer depletes storage capacity.

But for many computer users, there is a fear of the unknown: Are my files really safe in the cloud, or do I need to back up the backup? The debate has gotten more intense as cloud data storage has become widespread - despite some recent well publicized failures.

The world's fifth largest PC vendor, Asustek Computer Inc., is looking to expand into the cloud service space in a big way with its unveiling of the ASUS Cloud Platform, an updated rendition of their WebStorage file hosting service.

ASUS announced on May 27th that their rebranded cloud platform will now cost $22.99 US a year for 100 gigabytes of clou…

Online File Sharing: The Need of the Hour

Difference between web hosting and file hosting

While surfing the Internet in a quest to find storage space for home video or favorite music, users often confuse file hosting with web hosting. But there's a certain difference between the two. Firstly, web hosting enables you to place your website on the Internet. And file hosting offers storage space, where you may store whatever you want - including movies, music, work documents and other pertinent files. I guess that elucidates any confusion regarding the two separate concepts. Furthermore, file hosting is what we are concerned with here.

Why do you need file hosting?

The need for file hosting may arise if you wish to share files with friends and family, and your files are often large in size. Making floppies and burning CDs is neither economical nor it is an easy chore. Carrying physical media can be quite cumbersome at times. File sharing via email is not secure, and moreover, email cannot be used for large file transfers. In suc…

File Sharing Goes Mobile

Image
Advances in communications and technology have brought with it an off-shoot phenomenon that has greatly impacted the way individuals and businesses connect and deal with each other. File Sharing, which usually follows the Peer-to-Peer (P2P) model, has made it possible for people to connect in an instant. It involves an exchange of files between two users: an uploader providing the file and a downloader, who receives the file. The files are usually stored and served by the personal computers of the users.

Whereas before it would take days for individuals from across the globe to share photos, documents, videos and music, file sharing has bridged that gap of time and distance. Its impact is probably most felt in the music and entertainment industry wherein file sharing has made it possible for fans to listen and watch the latest music and movie releases in a span of seconds! As soon as the upload is finished, fans can easily download the file and be instantly updated with the latest even…

How to Find Complete Internet Security

Image
Every internet user will on the very least have an idea of what internet security is all about and the need of being secure while online. The unfortunate scenario is that most people will not practice the effective security measures to ensure that they will not be on the wrong end of various attempts, schemes and attacks. And as an old adage goes prevention is better than cure; it is of absolute importance to secure a computer or a system well in advance rather than await disaster and then react to the attack to reverse the damage done. Many people are ignorant and fail to do what is required of them only to attach blame to the wrong people and situations. The blame lies squarely with the internet user who will not play his or her part in ensuring that internet security is assured.

Complete internet security will demand that a number of measures be taken and they will all be aimed at averting disaster. Some of the most important steps to getting complete internet security will begin wi…
