Security Services

 

Such security services usually include measures such as encryption of data at the point of entry or at the data unit, tampering oracle attacks on the networks or the physical security infrastructure, monitoring of network traffic for suspicious activities and blocking of malicious scripts. Basically, it is a service offered by a lower layer of communication, namely an ITU-TP (ITU-T broadband), through which secure top-level networks are managed. There may also be an application-level security service referred to as SDSS (Secure Digital Service) that offers protection at the software layer. The ITU-SA (ISSP), in contrast, offers protection at the hardware layer. It requires active participation by the subscriber to ensure integrity of the digital connection.

One can divide security services into two categories based on their mode of operation: managed threats and internet threats. In a managed threat scenario, an ITU-TP and SDSS are implemented with the goal of managing or protecting against attacks originating from outside the company. In an internet threat scenario, the security services are meant to protect networks that are part of an organization’s internal network as well as against threats that emanate from within the organization.
