Literature Review: Security problem for Internet

This “Ten Problems for Internet in the 2020s” booklet identifies ten relevant areas from very recent contributions put forward at academic level in the form journal articles, conference proceedings and students theses. Ten freely accessible internet references have been selected for each area and direct links are provided at the end of each chapter for own consultation. Our selected references do not intend to mirror ranking indexes nor establish novel classifications. On the contrary, they are meant to represent peer-reviewed, diverse and scientifically-sound case studies for vertical dissemination aimed at non-specialist readers. They will also be able to scoop even more references through the bibliography that is reported at the end of each selected reference.

Without further ado, these are the ten problems that we are going to introduce in this booklet:

  1. software, 
  2. privacy,
  3. governance,
  4. wellbeing,
  5. jobs,
  6. commerce,
  7. infrastructure,
  8. blockchain,
  9. education,
  10. security.

Each problem has its own dedicated chapter made of an introductory section, a short presentation of the ten selected references and a conclusions section.

The final chapter of this booklet will report the conclusions from each chapter again in order to provide a complete executive summary.

10 Security

THE PROBLEM — Security is the primary factor considered during any transmission process. The lack of understanding of the underlying models of public key cryptography and digital signatures interfere with using the interface. In response to increasing cybersecurity threats, government and private agencies have increasingly hired offensive security experts: red-hat hackers. The integration of security mechanisms that provide protection against cybersecurity attacks in Industrial Internet of Things is also becoming a critical challenge.

CONCLUSIONS — No working group is developing standards in usable security, but best practices and guidelines must be formalized into standards to systematically move from theory to practice. DDoS defence process has two stages: stage one is to find the origin of an attack; phase two is to execute the defending mechanism to counteract the attack. Recent studies have shown that the attackers are using smart home appliances to launch serious attacks such as infiltrating to the network or sending malicious email or launching malicious actions such as DDoS attack. Red-hat hackers differ from the better-known white-hat hackers in applying the methods of cybercriminals against cybercriminals and counter or preemptively attacking, rather than focusing on defending against attacks. Modern technologies (e.g. Big Data, Cloud Computing) are increasingly being integrated in critical infrastructures in order to provide additional benefits, leaving them open to cyberattacks. A new ontology is needed to enable IoT frameworks, data aggregators, search engines, processors and data markets to share and consume data, by providing a vocabulary by which data-security annotations could be performed. As many devices share resources and communicate in IoT, security and privacy of IoT applications are an increasingly critical concern. There are many new security threats evolving with smart grids, especially from the IoT side, and also from the diversification of the systems and practices. Biometric authentication system is a pattern recognition system which recognizes a user by determining the authenticity of a specific anatomical or behavioral characteristic. The determination of key educational requirements for information security professionals by information security experts is an important contribution to the improvement of information security program development.
