The legality and exploitation of international MiTM attacks (Individual Paper) Print Page Recently, there is strong evidence that the US National Security Agency (NSA) has launched many MiTM attacks either by exploiting some known flaws in the techniques used to protect our data or by 'planting' some back doors in the algorithms used to encrypt the data.

It is not only the US; in some cases, such as the Flame virus, other countries engage in similar practices. In this Assignment, you will explore the leaks and news media accusing the US and other countries of launching MiTM attacks.

To complete this Assignment:

For this Assignment, you will write a paper on this topic. Choose one of the MiTM cases discussed in this Week's lecture notes (the section 'Sophisticated Attacks') and study it. Based on your country's laws, evaluate the legality of these actions in your own country. Express your opinion regarding your own interests to protect your assets against such exploitation.

For all Assignments: Your document should have 750-1,000 words (not including the list of works cited), but it is the quality of the answer that matters, not the number of words. Cite and reference all sources use the Harvard Liverpool Referencing System.

Note: The Individual Hand-In and the Individual Paper will be graded as a single assessment. Compile both documents and submit to Turnitin by Day 7.
