Network Protection Authentication

If you want to protect your network traffic, you need a good network security. It includes the monitoring of network security. In this article, I will discuss the security mechanisms of the Network. In general, I would recommend to secure the network using the NGP or NSM authentication system. In this article, I will describe the basic steps to secure the network using NGP and NSM authentication, since attackers now a day use the access they have to your computer to install malware in the computers and corrupt networks. You can view the full list of security related topics at http://www.federatedsecurity.com/security-technologies/network-security/securing-network-with-ngp-and-nsm-authentication/

There are many types of NGP and NSM authentication protocols that can be used on the network, including the following:

NSM is also known as NTLM, which stands for NTLMv2.

In NTLM, authentication is carried out by the password of the computer account. It is possible to use NTLMv1 and NTLMv2 for the same authentication process. A security protocol, NTLMv2, provides stronger security and is still used in many environments. A protocol commonly used in the Internet is NTLMv2. The security and privacy of the network are strongly dependent on the ability to authenticate users, especially those that have sensitive information. It is important that every server on the network is able to authenticate itself to all other computers on the network using NTLMv2, the security protocol of the NTLMv2 authentication protocol. NTLMv2 is a version of NTLM used with Kerberos.

In contrast to NTLM, NTLMv2 uses encryption to protect the authentication data. This provides a higher level of confidentiality, as well as the ability to use secure communications across a network.

For example, imagine a network that was designed so that a computer at each end of the network could not talk to the other computers. An attacker would have to break the encryption on each computer at the end of the network to obtain the username and password associated with the network connection. However, if both computers use encryption, then only the user’s private key will be able to decrypt the login data and read the password.

Note: It is recommended to use the DES cipher for the RSA encryption.

There are many different encryption algorithms available to encrypt user passwords. There are many good guides on how to use different types of encryption algorithms such as the AES and Blowfish algorithms.

Authentication tokens are very important to secure your network. These tokens are used to create a secure tunnel to authenticate users. In order to use them you need to include the following directives in your server configuration files.

ServerTokens directive

Description: Tells server to provide login and authentication tokens for this server

Default: ServerTokens off

Note: The ServerTokens directive can be used in place of or in addition to the serverTokens directive. When a client connects to a server, the user authentication and authorization mechanisms must be enabled for that connection. ServerTokens directive for SSL server configuration allows you to specify the location of the authentication and authorization tokens. The server tokens are loaded from a separate file in the location defined in the ServerTokens directive. The file format is described in detail in the SSL Server Tokens section of this guide. You must make sure that the location where the authentication and authorization tokens are located in a place you can always find them.
