An Introduction to the Computer Security Problem

...Essay 1 What Is There to Worry About? An Introduction to the Computer Security Problem Donald L. Brinkley and Roger R. Schell This essay provides an overview of the vulnerabilities and threats to information security in computer systems. It begins with a historical presentation of past experiences with vulnerabilities in communication security along with present and future computer security experiences. The historical perspective demonstrates that misplaced confidence in the security of a system is worse than having no confidence at all in its security. Next, the essay describes four broad areas of computer misuse: (1) theft of computational resources, (2) disruption of computational services, (3) unauthorized disclosure of information in a computer, and (4) unauthorized modification of information in a computer. Classes of techniques whereby computer misuse results in the unauthorized disclosure and modification of information are then described and examples are provided. These classes are (1) human error, (2) user abuse of authority, (3) direct probing, (4) probing with malicious software, (5) direct penetration, and (6) subversion of security mechanism. The roles of Trojan horses, viruses, worms, bombs, and other kinds of malicious software are described and examples provided. In the past few decades, we have seen the implementation of myriads of computer systems of all sizes and their interconnection over computer networks. These systems handle and are required to......

...paid for equity securities and interest rates attached to debt securities. To the extent that financial performance and condition are accurately com- municated to business decision makers, debt and equity securities are more accurately priced. By extension, financial reporting plays a crucial role in efficient resource allocation within and across economies. Accounting information contributes to the efficient operation of securities markets, labor markets, commodity markets, and other markets. To illustrate, imagine the consequences of a breakdown in the integrity of financial report- ing. The Enron scandal provides a case in point. At the beginning of 2001, Enron was one of the most innovative and respected companies in the United States. With revenues of over $100 billion and total company value of over $60 billion, it was the fifth largest U.S. corporation based on market value. In October 200 I, the company released its third quarter earnings report to the public. Although operating earnings were higher than in previous years, the income state- ment contained a $1 billion "special charge." Financial analysts began investigating the cause of this charge and discovered that it was linked to related-party transactions and questionable accounting practices. Once it became clear to the capital markets that Enron had not faithfully and accurately reported its financial condition and performance, people became unwilling to purchase its securities. The value of its debt and......

The goal is for Bixton to remain comfortably in the “A” range. For this to work properly, the firm must avoid ratings on the low end of the scale. Fixed Charge Coverage = 3.40 – 4.30 Total Debt = 55 – 65 Long-Term Debt = 25 – 30 B. Other considerable factors before settling on the target range includes: net present value (NPV), foreign tax credits, and the price of stock. In addition, the firm has a larger-than-average research and development department. Meaning if Bixton could show control over the spending in this area (funds from operations), any rating above 45% and below 65% would increase the lenders’ willingness to loan. C. Again, the key specific issues Bixton must resolve are the R&D and foreign tax credits. The target ranges listed in this case are only appropriate as a debt shield. More importantly, lenders will monitor for long-term debt to determine if R&D spending increase, and foreign tax credits remain balanced. That means any increase or decrease outside of the “A” range (22 – 32) indicates the capital structure is losing leverage. Chapter 18 (p. 542) A10.
