Journal of Computer, Internet and Network Security

The risk of invasion through internet has generated enormous concern about information and computer security among businesses, governments, legislators, academics, researchers, scientists and the public.

The Journal of Computer, Internet and Network Security deals with the theory, design, implementation, analysis, and application of secure information and computer systems.

Some of the topics covered under this journal (but not limited to them) are:

  • TCP/IP
  • Internet Protocol Security (IP), Firewalls
  • Antivirus software
  • Secure coding, Security Token
  • Email Security
  • Malicious Software
  • Phishing
  • Security by design
  • Secure operating systems
  • Application Vulnerabilities
  • Access Control Systems
  • Application security
  • Authentication, Intrusion system

Vol 8, No 2 (2023): Network Security and the Role of Traditional Firewalls and AI Firewalls

Authors:David A. Sinha, Ashish Kumar Sharma

Abstract:In this paper, we have analyzed different types of network security aspects, including topology, infrastructure and protocols. The idea is to first understand what a mobile/computer network is, how it works, and how data packets are sent across a network. We have focused on how these data packets which contain essential data, might also contain malicious code, viruses, malware, and thus the need to set up a series of systems in place to control malicious attacks, block malicious IP addresses, packet monitoring, virus scanning. We have analyzed how the different network security systems work individually and collectively to enable a secure networking environment, which is critical in this day and age, an aspect that is very important for business, academic and military applications. Finally, we have focused on an important aspect of Network Security Firewalls – both the “simple” software firewall and a more complex dedicated device called a hardware firewall (also called appliance firewall). We look into the pros and cons of each and discuss them, and heading to our conclusion, we focus on the emerging role of AI/machine learning in AI Firewalls and the unique way they function to counteract the upcoming emerging threats in a completely connected world.

Keywords-Network Security Firewalls, AI Firewalls, Machine Learning, IP addresses
