Week 2 Assignment
Encryption case study (Individual Hand-In)
ABC Company uses the cloud for its applications. It uses a password management application that stores passwords in a protected file encrypted by a single password. The password is five alphabetic characters and is changed on a monthly basis by the administrator, who delegates that to a colleague in case of the administrator's absence. When a subject seeks access to a certain protected object, the application decrypts the whole file in memory and matches the subject's password with the one in the store. The access control system does not accommodate contextual attributes in its access decision.
