This article is an analysis of three recent vulnerabilities to the Identity Theft Prevention (IP PINS) system: 1. A zero-day vulnerability of Adobe Systems’ Flash Player, discovered in February 2010, that exposes IP-based credentials to a remote attacker. An unexpected vulnerability in the Google Chrome browser, discovered in May 2010, that allows for the theft of cookies and other sensitive information. A recently discovered vulnerability in some versions of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 9 and older, allowing for the theft of credentials. This vulnerability is not present in Internet Explorer 8, Firefox, Safari, or Opera. This article discusses the three vulnerabilities and also discusses the implementation of IP PINS. It also describes the various approaches that can be taken to mitigate the impact of each of the three vulnerabilities. For more information, see the following publications: IP PINS: Protecting Against Identity Theft, Cisco Press, March 11, 2011; IP PINS: Protecting Against Identity Theft, Cisco Press, November 15, 2011; and IP PINS: Protecting Against Identity Theft, Cisco Press, January 14, 2012.

A CP01A notice with an Identity Protection PIN

Please refrain from sharing this information in any public way. If any personal identifiable information needs to be shared then please use the appropriate section for that information.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) are jointly issuing the following public advisory regarding a threat from the Russian government targeting the security of U. government computer systems: Information on the Russian government hacking of U. government systems has recently been published. To counter this potentially malicious use of cyberweapons, the U. government recommends that government employees use an Identity Protection PIN when carrying sensitive documents, files, emails, and other sensitive data on U. government computers and use an Identity Theft Prevention PIN (ITP) instead when carrying sensitive data. government officials have these types of sensitive data, they should make sure that it is encrypted using the most secure encryption standards.
The United States has some of the most sophisticated cyber defense capabilities in the world. A Russian government-led effort to target critical computer systems within the United States is just one of the tactics that Russia may use against the United States or other countries around the world. The use of hacking tools and social engineering may be among the first steps Russia takes to damage U. computer systems. computer security professionals do not take steps to protect sensitive data from these attacks, damage to U. computer systems may be avoided.
This notice is intended to notify government employees of the Russian government’s use of cyberweapons against U. government systems, to remind them of the importance of using a secure PIN when carrying sensitive documents or files on government computers, to urge government employees to use such a PIN, and to inform the general public.
Any individual or entity providing information or access to a government computer system or network shall notify the Information Technology Security Assurance (ITSA) Security Office (SBO) within two business days of becoming aware of an incident for which a Security Breach Notification (SCN) should be issued.
Getting an IP PIN.
The problem of the wrong PIN. We will talk about the problem of the wrong PIN in detail during last week’s presentation of the “Getting an IP PIN” course in Oulu (Suomen Tiede).
For the last 2 years we have been using the phrase “IP PIN” and “IP PIN System” and we all know what an IP PIN is, but we have not talked about the specific problems with the IP PIN. There is a technical problem with the IP PIN. The problem is with the way that the PIN is entered by the sender. In a PIN system there must be a valid combination of digits. If someone does not enter that valid combination and then sends the mail then the mail won’t reach the intended recipient’s mailbox. A common explanation of the problem with the IP PIN is that the PIN is sent without having a proper combination that matches the message content. The problem isn’t only with an IP PIN but also with a plain text password. An email with a proper combination of characters may work but it may also be a very bad message.
Imagine that the recipient of your email has been asked to send you a text message via an IP PIN system. However, the recipient is also receiving a password. So what happens? The recipient should use the IP PIN for the message. All the recipient needs to enter is his/her IP address. Only then the recipient can send the message. If the recipient enters his/her valid IP into the IP PIN then this process will be completed successfully. If the recipient does not enter his/her IP then the message will not be sent over the IP network.
There are two types of IP PIN systems that are used by mailers: the “PAM-IP” and the “Passport”. Both are used in large scale mail systems. A user can setup an IP PIN system himself/herself, or one can be used by a “trusted” recipient. An IP PIN system is usually used for large scale mail systems. A user can use an IP PIN system in practice as follows. A user can receive an email containing the following body.

“In the beginning, there was only God. The rest was darkness, a world without form. And God broke the surface of the whole world, and that was the light”– Genesis 1:3.
The history of the world, as we know it, is the history of man’s search for knowledge. But one of the first steps in the search for knowledge is knowledge itself. In one fell swoop, God’s Word found its way into the world and God made it known to the man. And man made history itself.
In the beginning, man was a wandering hunter and the only thing keeping him in one place was his ability to escape. When he stumbled upon a plant that looked like a palm tree, he got curious. So he decided to take some of it to see if it was good for food. Of course it was.
But it would have been better for the plant to be rooted up so that it could be eaten. Because there was no use in eating it until it was rooted out, and then it would have just become a thorn instead of something good for man. Then, instead of food, the plant had become a thorn in his side. So he decided to dig it up and eat it. And to become a thorn in the side of God.
Of course it is very natural for a man to think that he is an expert in everything related to his own knowledge. In fact, it is so natural it might even be considered a blessing. There is nothing more natural than to think you know everything there is to know.
But as we know it today, that is not necessarily true.
Tips of the Day in Computer Security
I know that many of you out there are already aware of the recent security and IT trends that are sweeping the industry. I’m not trying to knock such trends or any trends because they are legitimate and important. However, I feel the urge to put together a list of topics that many of you might find of interest.
I have a few ideas for topics that I feel would make for interesting reading. I also hope that you can learn something from my suggestions.
As with most of my “How to” lists these days, this is not a complete list but rather an overview or sampling of some of the topics that interest me. I think what I’ll share today is a perfect example of what I’ll write about.
I recently spent a weekend at a data center in the middle of a rural part of the United States. My guest room had a shared bathroom with a bathroom on each side. I felt quite contented while I was staying in there. The next morning I checked my email to see the email that I got from my manager.
