Advent of digitization of the network be put forward to different other dimensions of securing an enterprise network through different variants and through admission of different security levels. The environment of doing business today is mostly different from what it occurs a few years back. Companies are more connected with different applications and due to the advent of know your customer. There is no hard and fast rule for executives to remain on leave. Single most important factor for the security of the network is to think above board and move ahead of times and think beyond what hackers or malicious elements are thinking beyond the latest possible attacks mechanisms.
Enterprises is more concerned and more serious in thinking about the way to secure the entire networking environment of the organization. Due to flow of large number of data, keeping and maintaining of these data are beyond doubt important and most times these companies adopt to various security mechanisms to stop trespassers from evading into privacy of clients.
These are passive security measures to protect the network as they continue to listen to flow of traffic without interruption. These systems listen to traffic based on pre-configured set up rules and they cannot drop traffic or stop immediate intrusion into the flow of networks. They listen to flow of packets within network and categorically looked into whether such flow of the network is in accordance with pre-configured network laws or not.
There are many such false-positive in network intrusion detection system and for this genuine clients are sometimes not allowed to log into the enterprise network. This could prove to be costly and dear for many enterprises where many such advanced form of attacks is definitely being stopped but similar to them the genuine requests are also stopped. However, there is some network intrusion detection system which works on accurate prediction when they work in line with network protection.
There are some advanced evasion techniques where network packets work in accordance with changing network intrusion system and hides within other network packets which are genuine to provide deeper and invisible tactics to enter into a network system. With due course of time, vitality of network intrusion detection system is slowly moving towards anonymity due to advancement of better evasion techniques employed by hackers.
It is a complete fight between evasion techniques and network intrusion detection system where new means to avoid passive security employed through a system administrator are being taken out in order to intrude into the network and steal vital information from a centralized data base. Evasion technique is reverse re engineering techniques employed towards the host in order to destabilize the entire database administration. Network intrusion detection system works in a simple manner.
It begins when an application creates a database message or command for execution. Applications are connected with logical database server and provide physical access to the database. Then, the message is being broken into different TCP segments and sends to different networks which the application request to.
System collects those TCP segments and converts them into streams of data to be identified with running database system. Network intrusion detection system collects those segments and map with these segments whether they are following adequate safeguards or running in accordance with rules of the system or not.
There are several handling option of TCP segments and the receiver needs to watch those segments in a clear cut manner in order to understand and working of such segments. Network intrusion detection system could use who TCP segment or could use part of it in order to understand the basic nature of TCP segments.
After entirely understanding TCP segments by network intrusion system, the flow of traffic is then allowed to enter into the host system. In order, to avoid the entire intrusion detection prevention system, attackers create one such TCP segments where it is almost similar to allow TCP segments or create one such stubborn TCP segments which are mostly not being allowed to scan for network intrusion prevention system.
NIDS could not detect the segment class of such network traffic and put in the line of ambiguous TCP segments and ignored by NIDS. Ambiguous TCP segments do not have theoretical validity and does not constitute a prior set up rules so that it could be detected as rugged elements of NIIDS.
Most of these are constructed through invalid TCP checksum and for this it is essential for good NIIDS to detect such fake packets and drop these packets before they enter into host database system. Many NIIDS accept data from certain windows and could not detect TCP fragments which are constructed on the basis of out of windows coding mechanism. In these scenarios, most of the times, NIDS ignore such packets which allow hackers through different evasion techniques to enter into the system and create may be how to database administrator.
Ambiguous TCP segments create receiver window to receive and manage the flow of data. It provides an additional aspect of fake entry system which most times in NIDS failed to detect and manage. NIDS considers it as the actual receiver and allows it to function as a mini server within database administration.
There are many advanced techniques employed by a network administrator to perform and detect such evasive techniques. Most of times, such techniques are dynamic in nature and continue to change with changing times. Network administrator used to change configuration of NIDS so that these passive principles work in conjugation with the rules of the system to stop various fake attempts implemented through passive realignment of different evasion techniques.
Basic idea of such evasion techniques is to fool network administrator and passive security systems through different modes of ambiguous TCP segments so that automatically such evasion technique would face drops of flow of data while certain movements of data flows are constituted. When implemented in a proper secure manner, network intrusion detection system in combination with a firewall and anti malware system could provide solid protective environment against imminent evasion techniques to overcome and over power network attacks.
That is why all intrusion detection and prevention must operate within a single line of defense mechanisms, so that there would not be any conflicting issues within different layers of the security system. On many instances, we have seen the presence of evasion techniques due to conflict of antivirus layers of multiple antivirus system and that prevents functioning of one antivirus of running smoothly against the other and failed to prevent evasion attacks by stopping each other’s defense mechanisms.
Extreme security is good but conflicting security mechanisms are worse and one should always be sure of what security systems are provided within a specific enterprise environment. Passive security such as intrusion detection and prevention should correspond and works in line with the corporate environment and should not slow down entire data base administration. In this era of competitive business environment corporate competence and excellence could only be detected through the process of evasive attacks on digital infrastructure and for this it is imminent and important for all corporate to secure network infrastructures so that whenever there would be any such imminent attacks on system environment those should be stopped at the first site by covering all genuine routes with secure anti malware environments.
Comodo firewalls and its intrusion detection system provided some additional and alternative way to control attacks of packet drops and internet cuts on individual computers. On the larger scale, it is exactly the same as that of evasive attacks on larger enterprise systems. It works well but the network intrusion detection system developed by Comodo groups comes with many false positives and most times, genuine network connectivity also gets net cut and users left with no option but to stay offline for some days.
That is why in the enterprise environment one should always look forward and move towards perfect solutions with inland research and development team to aid and assist them in future times in order to fight with unique dynamic presence of evasive techniques. We are living in a world where faster development of techniques all around happens within shortest span of time and for this enterprise must adhere to their inland research development team to concentrate on developing a perfect and dynamic security system to work and create secure place to stay secure and protect important databases of customer from prying eyes of hackers.
