A comprehensive Body of Knowledge to inform and underpin education and professional training for the cyber security sector.

    CyBOK - Network Security 2.0 with Christian Rossow

    CyBOK - Network Security 2.0 with Christian Rossow

    The ubiquity of networking allows us to connect all sorts of devices and gain unprecedented access to a whole range of applications and services anytime, anywhere. However, our heavy reliance on networking technology also makes it an attractive target for malicious users who are willing to compromise the security of our communications and/or cause disruption to services that are critical for our day-to-day survival in a connected world. The Network Security 2.0 knowledge area explains 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.
    We speak with CyBOK Network Security 2.0 author Christian Rossow for an overview of the topic.

    CyBOK - Formal Methods with David Basin

    CyBOK - Formal Methods with David Basin

    The Formal Methods knowledge area surveys the most relevant topics in formal methods for security. As a discipline, formal methods address foundations, methods and tools, based on mathematics and logic, for rigourously developing and reasoning about computer systems, whether they be software, hardware, or a combination of the two. The application of formal methods to security has emerged over recent decades as a well-established research area focused on the specification and proof of security properties of systems, their components, and protocols.

    We speak with CyBOK Formal Methods author David Basin for an overview of the topic.

    CyBOK - Applied Cryptography with Kenny Paterson

    CyBOK - Applied Cryptography with Kenny Paterson

    The Applied Cryptography knowledge area This document provides a broad introduction to the field of cryptography, focusing on applied aspects of the subject. It complements the CyBoK document [1] which focuses on formal aspects of cryptography (including definitions and proofs) and on describing the core cryptographic primitives. That said, formal aspects are highly relevant when considering applied cryptography. As we shall see, they are increasingly important when it comes to providing security assurance for real-world deployments of cryptography.
    We speak with CyBOK Applied Cryptography author Kenny Paterson for an overview of the topic.

    CyBOK - Web and Mobile Security with Sascha Fahl

    CyBOK - Web and Mobile Security with Sascha Fahl

    The purpose of the Web and Mobile Security chapter is to provide an overview of security mechanisms, attacks and defences in modern web and mobile ecosystems. Web and mobile security have become the primary means through which many users interact with the Internet and computing systems. Hence, their impact on overall information security is significant due to the sheer prevalence of web and mobile applications (apps). Covering both web and mobile security, this Knowledge Area emphasises the intersection of their security mechanisms, vulnerabilities and mitigations. 
    We speak with CyBOK Web and Mobile Security author Sascha Fahl for an introductory overview of the topic.

    CyBOK - Distributed Systems Security with Neeraj Suri

    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 - Adversarial Behaviours with Gianluca Stringhini

    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.
