As a consequence of the growing popularity of smart mobile devices, mobile malware is clearly on the rise, with attackers targeting valuable user information and exploiting vulnerabilities of the mobile ecosystems. With the emergence of large-scale mobile botnets, smartphones can also be used to launch attacks on mobile networks. The NEMESYS project will(More)
—The growing popularity of smart mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets has made them an attractive target for cyber-criminals, resulting in a rapidly growing and evolving mobile threat as attackers experiment with new business models by targeting mobile users. With the emergence of the first large-scale mobile botnets, the core network has also(More)
— The TCP/IP suite, the basis for today's Inter-net, lacks even the most basic mechanisms of authentication. As usage of the Internet increases, its scarcity of built-in security becomes more and more problematic. This paper describes serious attacks against IP control and management protocols with an accent on the ICMP protocol, as well as some of the(More)
IPsec, the standard suite of protocols to provide security in IP networks, and IKE, the commonly used key management protocol for IPsec, do not address the more general problem of how security policies should be distributed to IPsec nodes. Recent IETF work in the area of network security provides a definition of the basic requirements of an IP Security(More)
With the recent definition of the Security Policy System, IPsec has joined the area of policy-based networking. This paper discusses the general architectural and functional requirements for systems in charge of security policy provi-sioning, and presents a critical evaluation of SPS. Some extensions are also suggested to increase SPS functionality in the(More)
