A Radical Approach to Secure LAN Network Using Novel Hardening Techniques
Computer networks and Internet has grown vastly in past decade. Computer networks allow access to information and services in an organized as well as controlled manner. Security is needed to make their data immune to any kind of data breach. In industries, the network and its security are vital issues, as the breach in the system can cause major problems. Hardening is to make system hard to protect from unauthorized access and is an on-going process of providing security. As, LAN hardening is done to secure whole organization network from attacks. It is divided into three parts-client/server, hardware and topology hardening. In this paper, a new model is proposed for LAN hardening to reduce security risk and main focus is to secure client/server.
