Turning off the Windows firewall

How to turn off the Windows firewall

Among other things, Windows includes a built-in firewall that protects your device from attacks by hackers and unwanted network traffic. To ensure you can use the Internet safely, you shouldn’t turn off the firewall permanently. However, you may sometimes find you need to temporarily disable it, for example, to install software. Read on to find out how to do this.

Ethical hacking

Ethical hacking – addressing security breaches and preventing cybercrime

Ethical hacking has been booming worldwide for several years. A growing number of companies voluntarily choose to be hacked and commission skilled IT professionals to target them by attacking their own infrastructure. Real stress tests under real conditions are intended to reveal weaknesses in their systems and prevent illegal hack attacks that could have dire consequences. The procedure is also...

Hash function

What is a hash function? Definition, usage, and examples

Hash functions are used in many areas of computer science. They generate hash values that represent digital information in a consistent manner according to defined parameters. They provide additional security (using encryption) during data transmission and allow data to be accessed more quickly. We explain what hash functions are, how they are used and provide some examples.

What is Mandatory Access Control (MAC)?

Mandatory Access Control (MAC): how does it work?

Data protection is very important, especially when it comes to high-security branches like the government and the military. Users in most organisations only have access to the data they need to do their job, and when it comes to highly sensitive data, it’s important to have a system that’s as tamper-proof as possible. That’s where Mandatory Access Control comes in. Keep reading to find out how...

What is role-based access control (RBAC)?

How does role-based access control (RBAC) work?

Organisations restrict access permissions in systems to protect sensitive data from unauthorised access and modification. However, assigning access permissions to users individually is a high-maintenance and error-prone process. In the case of role-based access control (RBAC), permissions are assigned based on previously assigned roles. Here, we explain how role-based access control works.

Hash table

The hash table: fast database access to hash values

A hash table is created using the hash function. This is a method for reducing digital information in such a way that extensive data sets can be retrieved quickly in internet-based databases. This method also makes it possible to implement sophisticated security features using encryption when transferring data.

Brute force attack: definition and protective measures

Brute force attacks: when passwords are served on a silver platter

Being constantly faced with headlines about stolen passwords, it’s understandable that many users are concerned. Your best bet is to make your passwords as complicated as possible and have them consist of many different types of characters. But even this won’t help if it’s the actual log-in area that isn’t secure enough. Even today, attackers are still successful with the notorious and simple...
