Abstract:

This thesis provides a discussion of the problems associated with networking in the DDN and will help a local administrator of a DDN subnet identify vulnerabilities. Topics such as authentication and access control, communications security, encryption and detection are discussed in order to gain a better understanding of the DDN and what steps can be taken in order to reduce the risks associated with networking. Recommendations are provided to enable the implementation of an effective program that seeks to reduce these risks to an acceptable level.
