System security illustrates the protection of system from unwanted and unauthorised access. This denotes that system is vulnerable to attack if it is not handled in an effectual manner and appropriate measures are not being taken. The software applications along with operating systems are exploitable to vulnerabilities like SQL injection and various others which already exist. System security illustrates the method which can be utilised by individuals or organisation for securing their assets. For an instance, firewall is utilised for improvising security. In this rules are formulated for filtering unwanted intrusions so that they do not get access to the system and carry out any kind of harmful activities. Thus, there is a need of a tool through whose assistance these vulnerabilities can be measured and their likeability can be minimised.

Title: System Security Assessment using Vulnerability Repositories

Chapter 1: Introduction

Operating system is liable for controlling access to resources that comprises of sensitive data. This implies control of access to resources of computer systems that involves data as well as operating system files. This is referred to as system security (Fu and et. al, 2019). Security vulnerability illustrates the weakness of an adversary which can be taken advantage off to compromise with availability, confidentiality along with integrity of resources. As the technology is evolving, there is enhanced probability to enter within them. The operating system and software apps have become exploitable to the system vulnerabilities which to leads to security concerns. Vulnerability denotes weakness that may be exploited via threat actor like attacker carrying out unauthorised actions in computer system. Basically, it implies cyber security term that illustrates flaw within system, which leads to creation of open attack. They signify weakness of computer system that comprises of procedures or anything that leads to expose information security. For this it is necessary for identification of applications which have vulnerabilities and can lead to have worst impact on individuals system. This will lead to identify vulnerability that might be prevented to from attacking as well as having access to data.

Background of the research

Computer vulnerability refers to cyber security term that denotes defect within a system that makes it prone to attacks. This signifies type of weakness which is present within computer system or mobile phones that comprises of set of procedures or aspects that lead to aid information security by which this can be exposed to threat. This can lead individuals to have various problems like threat of leakage of their private information (Bhatia, Christopher and Thangapandian, 2020). In case if firm’s network is being exposed or mobile device of any employee is accessed by intruder then they can have credential information of them which can be utilised against then. Even identity theft can be used to have access to wide range of data.

Problem statement

Operating system implies software which interacts with hardware as well as aids other programs to execute. This involves fundamental files or system software that is required by computers along with mobile phones requires OS to boot up and carry out their functionalities (Casola and et .al, 2020). Behind this lots of programming is involved in different languages basically, it is Java, C and many more languages which allows firms as well as individuals to carry out their operations in smooth manner. This leads to certain vulnerabilities that pose threat to these devices as there is a probability that program might have skipped certain aspects which makes them vulnerable. This means that there is a need for an application that will lead to identify these vulnerable apps which will lead to hamper the functionalities of operations or information stored within them (Chen and et. al, 2020).

Research aim

“To identify the system security assessment through the usage of vulnerability repositories”

Research Objectives

- To identify the concept of system security along with vulnerabilities present within.

- To identify the impact of existing software vulnerability upon apps as well as operating system.

- To analyse the effectiveness of creating a new tool in order to reduce the risk of system vulnerability.

Research Questions

- Illustrate concept of system security along with vulnerabilities within them.

- Identify the impact of existing software vulnerability upon apps as well as operating system.

- Conduct analysis of effectiveness of creating a new tool in order to reduce the risk of system vulnerability.

Statement of Hypothesis

H0: New tool for system security will lead to have affirmative reduction of risks associated with system vulnerabilities.

H1: New tool for system security will not have any influence on reducing risks related with system vulnerabilities.
