Security can mean resistance to casual attacks like most viruses and security can also mean resistance to DOS attacks. But in this paper, security will mean the embedded devices' ability to contain sensitive information and to hold down its end of a secure communication. In this paper the authors also are studying about various types of protocols which are used in networks security. These are TCP/IP, IPSec and SSL which are used in those networks which are also using embedded devices. Security protocols, such as IPSec and SSL are being increasingly deployed in the context of networked embedded systems.
