The Symantec Internet Security Threat Report just released is an analysis and discussion of Internet security activity over the past six months covering areas like Internet attacks, vulnerabilities, malicious code, and future trends. The report notes about a marked shift in the threat landscape. Attackers are moving away from large, multipurpose attacks on network perimeters and towards smaller, more focused attacks on client-side targets. The new threat landscape will likely be dominated by emerging threats such as bot networks, customizable modular malicious code, and targeted attacks on Web applications and Web browsers. Unlike traditional attack activity, many current threats are motivated by profit. They often attempt to perpetrate criminal acts, such as identity theft, extortion, and fraud. Kim Claffy documents the problems the internet framework faces and proposes simple solutions. His presentation outlines 16 operational problems the internet faces today, some proposed solutions and implications to various stakeholders. Top engineering and operational problems, why they persistently resist solution, how different stakeholders are responding to these , proposed solutions – impacts on technology, society and regulators get covered as part of the presentation. The internet needs a lot more attention with aborted moves to shift to IPV6 bandwagon, despite its continued exponential growth.
