Authentication is an important step in login to the system. In this paper, the authors are implementing one scheme for mobile social network which makes the authentication process secure compare to the other schemes. Many schemes were proposed to secure the system. They first explore some major schemes proposed for the authentication process. Due to the lots of attacks in the cyber world, high performance and secure login schemes are becoming important and they are implementing one such scheme in their implementation of mobile social network: pair based authentication.

Datadog Announces Integration with Amazon Security Lake

Datadog | November 30, 2022

Datadog, Inc., the monitoring and security platform for cloud applications, today announced a new integration with Amazon Security Lake. The integration, announced during AWS re:Invent, makes it easy for Amazon Security Lake users to send cloud security logs to Datadog in a standard format. Building data pipelines in order to aggregate and route security logs to various security analytics solutions can be a cumbersome and time-consuming process. For Amazon Security Lake customers, Datadog's integration provides an easy way to send security logs to Datadog with minimal configuration required. Once security logs are ingested into Datadog, customers can analyze and identify threats through out-of-the-box detection rules or by writing custom security rules. They can also do deeper investigations using Datadog's log management tools. "Amazon Security Lake makes it easier for teams to manage their cloud security data and analyze it with partner solutions of their choice," said Rod Wallace, General Manager for Amazon Security Lake. "Datadog's integration with Amazon Security Lake will allow customers to collect their security logs to improve their cybersecurity posture and send them to Datadog for analysis leveraging an open source schema." "Security threat detection and investigation is dependent on an effective logging strategy that ensures critical logs are being properly analyzed. However, managing dozens of log integrations from cloud-hosted accounts and entities can be cumbersome and lead to gaps in visibility. "Amazon Security Lake and Datadog are working together to provide an easy way to set up and manage important log integrations for Datadog Cloud SIEM, giving customers deep visibility into their most critical infrastructure." Pierre Betouin, SVP of Security Products at Datadog About Datadog Datadog is the monitoring and security platform for cloud applications. Our SaaS platform integrates and automates infrastructure monitoring, application performance monitoring and log management to provide unified, real-time observability of our customers' entire technology stack. Datadog is used by organizations of all sizes and across a wide range of industries to enable digital transformation and cloud migration, drive collaboration among development, operations, security and business teams, accelerate time to market for applications, reduce time to problem resolution, secure applications and infrastructure, understand user behavior and track key business metrics.

Qualys Introduces TotalCloud with FlexScan Delivering Cloud-Native VMDR

Qualys | November 02, 2022

Qualys, Inc., a pioneer and leading provider of disruptive cloud-based IT, security and compliance solutions, is announcing TotalCloud with FlexScan delivering cloud-native VMDR with Six Sigma Accuracy via agent and agent-less scanning for comprehensive coverage of cloud-native posture management and workload security across multi-cloud and hybrid environments. As business applications and on-premises infrastructure migrate to the cloud, security teams struggle with managing cyber risk across cloud workloads, services, resources, users, and applications. Additionally, teams must deal with a plethora of industry acronym-driven point solutions that provide a fragmented view of risk without context. This approach increases security costs and complexity while leaving cloud applications vulnerable to attacks. "Qualys is enhancing its widely used platform to deliver visibility, context, speed, automation, and orchestration in a comprehensive solution to help organizations scale their security and compliance programs for modern software development. "Qualys TotalCloud incorporates security into development workflows, enabling them to release secure, reliable code while giving security teams the control and visibility they need to manage risk by reducing their attack exposure and rapidly responding to threats." Melinda Marks, senior analyst at ESG "As a finance organization, we need a continuous view of the security and compliance posture across our cloud applications, with clear insights into risk," said Prabhuram Rajarathinam, CISO at Cholamandalam Investment and Finance Company. "Qualys TotalCloud with FlexScan will enable our cloud security and DevOps teams to use the multiple assessments to further strengthen the security of our cloud applications." With more than 31 million workloads already secured by Qualys, Qualys TotalCloud extends the industry-leading accuracy of VMDR with cloud-native FlexScan assessments to unify Cloud Posture Management and Cloud Workload Security in a single view with risk insights. TotalCloud automates inventory, assessment, prioritization and risk remediation via an easy-to-use drag-and-drop workflow engine for continuous and zero-touch security from code to production cloud applications. Qualys FlexScan Qualys TotalCloud introduces FlexScan a comprehensive cloud-native assessment solution that allows organizations to combine multiple cloud scanning options for the most accurate security assessment of their cloud environment. Security teams will have multiple hybrid assessment capabilities to secure the entire cloud attack surface including: Zero-touch, agent-less, cloud service provider API-based scanning for fast analysis. Virtual appliance-based scanning to assess unknown workloads over the network for open ports and remotely exploitable vulnerability detection. Snapshot assessment that mounts the workload snapshot for periodic offline scanning including vulnerabilities and OSS scanning. Qualys Cloud Agents in the workload for comprehensive, real-time vulnerability, configuration and security assessment. Qualys TotalCloud provides security teams with: Immediate multi-cloud posture insights - The unified cloud posture dashboard provides inventory, security and compliance posture insights across multi-cloud environments in minutes. Teams can easily identify and prioritize the misconfigurations that cause the highest risk with additional context on workload vulnerability and security posture. Unified security view to prioritize cloud risk with TruRisk - A single view of cloud security insights across cloud workloads, services and resources is provided via the console. Additionally, Qualys TruRisk quantifies security risk by workload criticality and vulnerability detections and correlates it with ransomware, malware and exploitation threat intelligence to prioritize, trace and reduce risk. Fast remediation with no code, drag-and-drop workflows - The integration of QFlow technology into TotalCloud saves security and DevOps teams valuable time and resources. Automation and no-code, drag-and-drop workflows help simplify the time-consuming operational tasks of assessing vulnerabilities on ephemeral cloud assets, alerting on high-profile threats, remediating misconfigurations, and quarantining high-risk assets. Shift-left security to catch issues early– TotalCloud provides shift-left security integrated into developers existing CI/CD tools to continuously assess cloud workloads, containers and Infrastructure as Code (IaC) artifacts. This allows for the rapid identification of security exposures and remediation steps during the development, build and pre-deployment stages while providing support for the major cloud providers including AWS, Azure and Google Cloud. "Cloud security is getting very fragmented with too many point solutions, which brings more complexity," said Sumedh Thakar, president and CEO of Qualys. "Our customers want seamless, comprehensive insight into cyber risk across their multi-cloud and non-cloud assets. With our innovative TotalCloud offering, we bring flexible, high-quality cloud-native risk assessment to our customer base as they look to expand into the cloud with Qualys."
