World wide web is going strong

World wide web is going strong after 25 years, but the internet isn’t holding up After 25 years, it’s getting a bit dusty in there. Arrqh, CC BY-SA Alan Woodward, University of Surrey Most people would agree with the principle that good foundations are essential to any structure that is intended to last. But what if when you started building, you didn’t envisage how large, complex or essential your structure would become? As we celebrate 25 years of the world wide web, the extraordinarily accurate science of hindsight brings to light just such a situation. We have all become dependent on a network that was never intended to be as large or secure as it is now required to be. The big question is, do we go back and start again or do we simply accept history and ensure that our structure somehow compensates for its weaknesses? Shaky foundations To decide, we have to distinguish between two quite distinct entities: the internet, and the world wide web, which sits on top of it. It is the internet, in the form of its underlying network protocol known as IPv4, that provides the weak link being broken by some of the latest high profile cyber attacks. When the first few computer networks were connected, it was to share resources. Spreading the load between machines meant that those with spare capacity could...

Is someone watching you online?

Is someone watching you online? The security risks of the Internet of Things Internet connected devices like webcams are the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the Internet of Things. DAVID BURILLO/Flickr, CC BY-SA Patryk Szewczyk, Edith Cowan University and Nikolai Hampton, Edith Cowan University The range and number of “things” connected to the internet is truly astounding, including security cameras, ovens, alarm systems, baby monitors and cars. They’re are all going online, so they can be remotely monitored and controlled over the internet. Internet of Things (IoT) devices typically incorporate sensors, switches and logging capabilities that collect and transmit data across the internet. Some devices may be used for monitoring, using the internet to provide real-time status updates. Devices like air conditioners or door locks allow you to interact and control them remotely. Most people have a limited understanding of the security and privacy implications of IoT devices. Manufacturers who are first-to-market are rewarded for developing cheap devices and new features with little regard for security or privacy. At the heart of all IoT devices is the embedded firmware. This is the operating system that provides the controls and functions to the device. Our previous research on internet device firmware demonstrated that even the largest manufacturers of broadband routers frequently used insecure and vulnerable firmware components. IoT risks are compounded by their highly connected and accessible...

A new way to fix those frustrating websites

A new way to fix those frustrating websites Some websites can drive you crazy. Flickr/Jonathan Brodsky , CC BY Michael Kearney, CSIRO and Sarah Dods, CSIRO How many times have you been looking for information online, only to find yourself going round and round in circles? Or you’ve spent too long poking around a website trying to find what you need, only to realise you’ve been looking in the wrong place all along? Whether it is doing your banking, looking up details of a flight or checking out some government services – if a website doesn’t work the way we want it to, it can be a very frustrating experience. It might seem like a first-world problem but the reality is our expectations around service delivery are changing. More than three quarters of Australians prefer to access services electronically and we expect those services to be faster, adaptable and available whenever and wherever we desire. This is why, more than ever before, service providers need to understand how people use their digital channels and make sure that their design is efficient, user-friendly and fit for the purpose. Creating digital communities It’s not only businesses that need to have a savvy online presence. Digital service delivery is increasingly relevant for the public sector. The Australian Public Service ICT strategy 2012 – 2015, states that digital technologies will be used to...

Why Use Google Adsense

Undoubtedly, you’ve heard about Google’s AdSense and you are thinking about giving it a go. But is it really worth placing an AdSense banner on your site? The answer is a definite yes. You could always have some other banner on your site, or even use some search of affiliate ad program and that would probably make you some money, given of course that your site enjoys a healthy amount of visitors. However with affiliate marketing, it is expected that the visitor from your website completes a sale before you are remunerated. But that’s nowhere near what you get for using AdSense. There are people who earn in excess of 100.000 dollars per year by using AdSense. And it doesn’t just stop with making more money. Firstly, the ads are text only. That means they’re by far less obtrusive on your visitors then your average, flashy banner that’s designed to catch the eye of the visitor. Sure, you’ll have to ensure they get better placement, so as to be noticed but despite that they don’t bother viewer’s as much as traditional ads. Think about the many sites you’ve seen using pop-ups, floating banners and many other schemes that will have visitors screaming in anger every time they visit the said website. You can actually do better then that, annoying people less and still making an amount of money. Secondly,...
