In your role as a highly paid consultant, you are given a list of  potential threats   to and vulnerabilities of the current communication security protocols of an organization. You are asked to provide quantitative data to measure the likelihood that any of these threats will actually occur for the information assets of the client. Conduct research and describe resources you found that might provide insight into measuring the likelihood that some of the threats would actually occur. In the explanation, include whether you see a trend in resources that might indicate a specific industry is particularly involved in gathering this kind of data. Additionally, evaluate which communication security protocols are more effective and provide an explanation.

List of Possible Threats/Vulnerabilities

  Spoofing is attempting to gain access to a system by using a false identity. This can be accomplished using stolen user credentials or a false IP address. After the attacker successfully gains access as a legitimate user or host, elevation of privileges or abuse using authorization can begin. Tampering is the unauthorized modification of data, for example, as it flows over a network between two computers.   Repudiation is the ability of users (legitimate or otherwise) to deny that they performed specific actions or transactions. Without adequate auditing, repudiation attacks are difficult to prove.   Information disclosure is the unwanted exposure of private data. For example, a user views the contents of a table or file he or she is not authorized to open, or monitors data passed in plain text over a network. Some examples of information disclosure vulnerabilities include the use of hidden form fields, comments embedded in webpages that contain database connection strings and connection details, and weak exception handling that can lead to internal system-level details being revealed to the client. Any of this information can be very useful to the attacker. Denial of service is the process of making a system or application unavailable. For example, a denial of service attack might be accomplished by bombarding a server with requests to consume all available system resources or by passing it malformed input data that can crash an application process. Elevation of privilege occurs when a user with limited privileges assumes the identity of a privileged user to gain privileged access to an application. For example, an attacker with limited privileges might elevate his or her privilege level to compromise and take control of a highly privileged and trusted process or account.
