There is no need for users to be near the connection point to use internet (Solms, BV & Marais, E 2004). However, wireless technology also generates new threats and alters the existing information security risk profile. It is crucial to secure a wireless network if we want to avoid the unauthorized users from accessing our data and downloading materials. These days stealing of data and assets through the internet have become very frequent. So, it is important to secure the wireless network by utilizing small time to be saved in future.
At present, the Internet lacks a differentiation mechanism in packet forwarding making BGP sessions sensitive to network congestion. Thus, it is important to understand the reliability of BGP in congested networks, for the purposes of evaluating system stability and avoiding system failure . BGP forwards packets based on its best path. The current BGP routing table does not include an alternate path in it. If there is only one best path, and if that best path becomes congested, current BGPv4 still forwards packets using that best path.
(Bloom, 1998). Star topologies can be expensive to install, however, quickly identified nodes on the network through the switches, or hubs, will drastically decrease downtime. Ring Each workstation on the network is connected to two other workstations, forming a loop or ring. Conflicts in the transmission of data are avoided with token ring technology, which grants messages a "token" or permission to send. Each workstation receives, regenerates and retransmits a token signal until it reaches its destination.
1 Introduction Wireless computing is the topic of much conversation today. The concept has been around for some time now but has been mainly utilizing communication protocols that exist for voice based communication. It is not intended to replace wired data communication but instead to be utilized in areas that it would be otherwise impossible to communicate using wires. Only recently has the industry been taking steps to formulate a standard that is more suitable to data transmission. Some the problems to be overcome are: (1) Data Integrity - relatively error free transmission, (2) Speed - as close as possible to the speed of current wired networks, (3) Protection - making sure that the data now airborne is encoded and cannot be tapped by unwelcome receivers, (4) Compatibility - ensuring that the many protocols that sure to be created subscribe to a standard to allow inter-operability, (5) Environmentally safe - strengths of electromagnetic radiation must be kept within normal levels.
The Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) uses UDP instead of TCP. First, one of the attractive features of UDP is that since it does not need to retransmit lost packets nor does it do any connection setup, sending data incurs less delay. This lower delay makes UDP an appealing choice for delay-sensitive applications like audio and video. Second, multicast applications are built on top of UDP since they have to do point to multipoint. Using TCP for multicast applications would be hard since now the sender would have to keep track of retransmissions or sending rate for multiple receivers.
The main objective of congestion control is to limit the delay and buffer overflow caused by network congestion and provide better performance of the network . In wire line networks, congestion control is implemented at the transport layer and is often designed separately from functions of other layers . However, these congestion control techniques do not apply directly to adhoc networks because the ad hoc network is challenged by limited wireless bandwidth, power constraints, route failures due to node mobility and limited buffer size. The final result is high packet-loss rate, re-routing instability, loss of energy, bandwidth and retransmission of lost packets, which means that even mo... ... middle of paper ... ...ne ( warn_line= queue_size/2), then the node’s congestion status becomes Zone I (safe zone). The average queue length greater than Minth and less than Maxth, then the node’s congestion status becomes Zone-II (likely to be congested zone) and initiates alternate path discovery mechanism.
While full time monitoring of traffic, there is no need to start sub-detection in the requests. When the detection test shows normal traffic, the possibility of attack is low because the potential of a false negative is low. On the other hand, when the traffic is abnormal the algorithm should stop and enable the secondary filter, attempting to find most attack action. Figure 6 shows a flowchart of such algorithm. Figure 6 SYN cookie technology uses the idea that while returning the TCP SYN + ACK packet, the TCP server sends a cookie value instead of a specific data area .
Without MAC address filtering, any wireless user can attempt to join wireless networks if they know the network name and security password. When MAC address filtering is enabled, system administrators must input a list of MAC addresses that will be allowed to join the wireless network. If attackers attempt to join the wireless network, MAC address filtering will deny any access to the network. Encryption is a common measure against illegal interception and user authentication is also useful to control unauthorized access. If system administrators upgrade their wireless access point software with third party version or their private version, they should allow for adjusting the output power of wireless access points.

When looking at the best standards to use for VoIP it is important to make sure the quality of the call is sufficient to be used in a business environment. For example if setting up a wireless based VoIP system you would need to make sure you’re using 802.11n or 802.11ac to ensure the bandwidth is able travel to reduce lag and jitter during the call. Also, when setting up a wired based system you will need to make sure you have a high-speed backbone to your network from the point of the switch managing the VoIP calls. This can be enabled by using gigabit links and also making sure you are using Cat 6 cabling to further reduce jitter, lag and dropped packets.
This is very effective, but can cause performance degradation. Circuit-Level Gateway: This applies security mechanisms when a TCP or UDP connection is established. Once the connection has been made, packets can flow between the hosts without further checking. Proxy Server: This intercepts all messages entering and leaving the network. The proxy server effectively hides the true network addresses.
