Computer Security Education and Research: Handle with Care
November/December 2006 (vol. 4 no. 6)
pp. 56-59
Bradley S. Rubin, University of St. Thomas
Donald Cheung, Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension
In seeking ways to actively detect attackers and their malicious code and tools, researchers, educators, and their students must tread somewhat cautiously, to ensure that their own computing activities remain legal and ethical. Although the intent behind protecting and securing systems serves the overall societal good, the methods used to achieve these ends must remain both legal and ethical. These issues also make great classroom discussion topics in any information security curriculum.
Index Terms:
honeypot, vulnerability disclosure, network sniffing, ethics, legal issues
