A comprehensive Body of Knowledge to inform and underpin education and professional training for the cyber security sector.
CyBOK - Adversarial Behaviours with Gianluca Stringhini
The purpose of the Adversarial Behaviours chapter is to provide an overview of the malicious operations that are happening on the Internet today. The chapter discusses how these frameworks can be used by researchers and practitioners to develop effective mitigations against malicious online operations.
We speak with CyBOK Distributed Systems Security author Gianluca Stringhini for an introductory overview of the topic.
CyBOK - Law and Regulation with Robert Carolina
The purpose of the Law and Regulation chapter is to provide a snapshot of legal and regulatory topics that merit consideration when conducting various activities in the field of cyber security such as: security management, risk assessment, security testing, forensic investigation, research, product and service development, and cyber operations (defensive and offensive). The hope is to provide a framework that shows the cyber security practitioner the most common categories of legal and regulatory risk that apply to these activities, and to highlight (where possible) some sources of legal authority and scholarship..
We speak with CyBOK Law and Regulation author Robert Carolina for an introductory overview of the topic.
CyBOK - Hardware Security with Ingrid Verbauwhede
The purpose of the Distributed Systems Security chapter covers a broad range of topics from trusted computing to Trojan circuits. To classify these topics we follow the different hardware abstraction layers as introduced by the Y-chart of Gajski & Kuhn.
We speak with CyBOK Hardware Security author Ingrid Verbauwhede for an introductory overview of the topic.
CyBOK - Distributed Systems Security with Neeraj Suri
The purpose of the Distributed Systems Security chapter is to introduce the different classes of distributed systems categorising them into two broad categories of decentralised distributed systems (without central coordination) and the coordinated resource/services type of distributed systems. Subsequently, each of these distributed system categories is expounded for the conceptual mechanisms providing their characteristic functionalities prior to discussing the security issues pertinent to these systems.
We speak with CyBOK Distributed Systems Security author Neeraj Suri for an introductory overview of the topic.
CyBOK - Privacy and Online Rights with Carmela Troncoso
The purpose of the Privacy and Online Rights chapter is to introduce system designers to the concepts and technologies that are used to engineer systems that inherently protect users’ privacy. We aim to provide designers with the ability to identify privacy problems, to describe them from a technical perspective, and to select adequate technologies to eliminate, or at least, mitigate these problems.
We speak with CyBOK Privacy and Online Rights Knowledge Area author Carmela Troncoso for an introductory overview of the topic.
CyBOK - Network Security with Sanjay Jha
The purpose of the Network Security chapter is to explain the challenges associated with securing a network under a variety of attacks for a number of networking technologies and widely used security protocols, along with emerging security challenges and solutions. This chapter aims to provide the necessary background in order to understand other knowledge areas. An understanding of basic networking protocol stack and TCP/IP suite is assumed.
We speak with CyBOK Network Security Knowledge Area author Sanjay Jha for an introductory overview of the topic.
