Unformatted text preview: . FUTURE TRENDS IN SECURITY What is going to drive the Internet security is the set of applications more than anything else. The future will possibly be that the security is similar to an immune system. The immune system fights off attacks and builds itself to fight tougher enemies. Similarly, the network security will be able to function as an immune system. The trend towards biometrics could have taken place a while ago, but it seems that it isn’t being actively pursued. Many security developments that are taking place are within the same set of security technology that is being used today with some minor adjustments. CONCLUSION Network security is an important field that is increasingly gaining attention as the internet expands. The security threats and internet protocol were analyzed to determine the necessary security technology. The security technology is mostly software based, but many common hardware devices are used. The current development in network security is not very impressive. Originally it was assumed that with the importance of the network security field, new approaches to security, both hardware and software, would be actively researched. It was a surprise to see most of the development taking place in the same technologies being currently used. The embedded security of the new internet protocol IPv6 may provide many benefits to internet users. Although some security issues were observed, the IPv6 internet protocol seems to evade many of the current popular attacks. Combined use of IPv6 and security tools such as firewalls, intrusion detection, and authentication mechanisms will prove effective in guarding intellectual property for the near future. The network security field may have to evolve more rapidly to deal with the threats further in the future.
