Introduction

Intrusion detection systems (IDSs) are an ever-present requirement in a cybersecurity infrastructure to ensure a server or internal network is protected. An intrusion detection system is either a hardware device or software program that actively monitors a server or group of servers for network policy violations or malicious activity. Any suspicious activity, attempted attack, or policy violation is reported and logged to a centrally located security information and event management (SIEM) system database, or directly to a security administrator for further review. This article explores Liquid Web’s intrusion detection product called Alert Logic Security and Compliance Suite.

Introduction

This article will review some of the more technical aspects of Threat Stack. Threat Stack is a platform-independent intrusion detection system (IDS) designed to provide users with a unique view into various integrated server security functions. It monitors both Linux and Windows servers as well as Kubernetes or other container-based server infrastructures to observe behaviors and detect malicious, uncommon, and risky activity.

SIEM 2

Security Information and Event Management (or SIEM) is a subset of the computer security field, where applications and services join forces with security event management and security information management. When united, these disciplines provide significantly improved real-time statistical data and threat analysis of alerts generated by the related applications. The 2021 Internet Security Threat Report from Sophos denotes that are not only the number of attacks on the rise but also the diverse nature of methodologies and vectors of incursions used. This necessitates the fact that adding a SIEM is especially warranted at this time.

what is blockchain

The idea of blockchain itself may sound complicated, but the premise is simple. Blockchain is a zero-trust, fully decentralized peer-to-peer data storage system that spreads verified information across participants in the chain, referred to as nodes. Blockchain stores this information in blocks that are chained together. As new data arrives, it is recorded into a block. Once a block has been filled with information, it is linked to the previous block. This process allows the data to be bound together in sequential and chronological order.

What is Zero Trust Security?

Zero Trust security is the concept, methodology, and threat model that assumes no user, system, or service operating within a secured internal environment should be automatically trusted. It put forward that every interaction must be verified when trying to connect to a system before being granted access. This concept uses micro-segmentation, and granular edge controls based on user rights, application access levels, service usage, and relation to the location to determine whether to trust a user, machine, or application seeking to access a specific part of an organization.

The Difference Between SSL and TLS

What is the relationship between an SSL vs TLS? Most of us are familiar with SSL (Secure Socket Layer) but not TLS (Transport Layer Security). Both protocols are used to transmit online data securely between two endpoints. SSL is older than TLS, but all SSL certificates can use both SSL and TLS encryption. TLS is the replacement protocol to SSL as TLS is the updated version of the SSL protocol. TLS operates similarly to SSL by using encryption methods to ensure secure communication.
