Protecting SNMP Through MarketNet

Jackowski, Marcela

As dependency on information technology becomes more critical so does the need for network computer security. Because of the distributed nature of networks, large-scale information systems are highly vulnerable to negative elements such as intruders and attackers. The types of attack on a system can be diverse and from different sources. Some of the factors contributing to creating an insecure system are the relentless pace of technology, the need for information processing, and the heterogeneity of hardware and software. In addition to these insecurities, the growth and success of e-commerce make networks a desirable target for intruders to steal credit card numbers, bank account balances, and other valuable information. This paper looks at two different security technologies, SNMP v3 and MarketNet, their architectures and how they have been developed to protect network resources and services, such as, internet applications, devices, and other services, against attacks.
