What is privacy in the modern world?
What role does celebrity play?
How does Multimedia and Information Technology impact upon privacy and celebrity?

In recent days the death of Michael Jackson has received blanket coverage in conventional news media (newspapers, radio news and television news).

Other media have been dealing with high volumes of traffic too. Google thought that it may have been under cyber attack due to the very high rate of inquiries of "Michael Jackson" that happened with such an immediacy in time.
(See: http://www.smh.com.au/technology/technology-news/jackson-queries-cause-google-meltdown-20090627-d06w.html)

Some people are literally born as a celebrity - these are the princes and princesses of this world who inherit a role in public life from their parents, the kings and queens. There are very few such people left on the planet, and their level of celebrity may be localized to just a few countries.

All other celebrities are "produced" or "manufactured". Movie stars (especially when married to each other, as are Angelina Joli and Brad Pitt) are a marketers dream. Prominent sports and music stars (again, especially when married as are Victoria (Posh Spice) and David Beckham) can no longer live their private lives privately. Event such as births of children along with the disruptions or unhappiness that occur in family life such as separations and divorce, are played out in the public media whenever they occur.

Why is this so? And what are the rights and wrongs of this? After all, if the general public payed no attention to these "stories" then they would not appear in the news media because they would not be the material that sold papers, or gained viewers or was considered to "be news".

Forum 2: First Person Computer Games.

What are the implications?
Can these games be seen as training young users to commit acts of violence?

Check out this site:
There was a documentary aired last night (4/10/09) on SBS about "The Samurai", a TV series produced in the 60's and 70's which achieved a cult status in the minds of Australian children at the time. It was the first TV series that produced a range of merchandise associated with a show in Australia.
Lots of school kids at the time were crazed about the show and although the merchandise consisted mainly of ninja costumes and plastic swords, many took to using tin-snips to fabricate their own star knives from discarded tin can lids.

What is privacy in the modern world?
What role does threats to security play?
How does Multimedia and Information Technology impact upon privacy and security?

Last week the headlines were again reporting hotel bombings in Indonesia (http://www.aol.com.au/news/story/Jihad-in-Jakarta/2348587/index.html), resulting in several deaths.

Such bombings are not isolated to Indonesia.

The flying of airplanes into the twin towers of The World Trade Center in the U.S.A on September 11th 2001 captured lots of media attention. In part because of the severity of the event, but perhaps also because of the extreme nature of the footage that had been captured (both the crashing of planes into the buildings, and the crashing of the buildings to the ground).
Be warned, explicitly graphic but for example, see: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1lKZqqSI9-s. Several thousand people died as a direct result.

This event changed the political relationship between some countries of "the west" and groups considered to be aligned with Islamic fundamentalism, which was identified as being responsible.

The reality is that whatever the politics of the situation, bombings of public figures and public spaces (trains, buses, airplanes, hotels, restaurants, weddings) has become a relatively more common strategy employed by some groups and the location for such events has clearly become more globalised.

Information and Communication technologies such as mobile phones, email, and internet sites have been used to plan, coordinate and execute some of these attacks. Consequently, many governments have sought to modify their countries' laws regarding privacy and communications to enable greater surveillance (with varying degrees of success).

What are the rights and wrongs of such a trend towards increased surveillance? Are you happy with such a state of affairs? Does it make you feel safer? Does it make the world safer?

Forum 4: Public Information and Politics.

(5 marks)

What is public information in the modern world?
What role does politics play?
How does Multimedia and Information Technology impact upon free speech and politics?
In democratic countries “freedom of thought” and “freedom of speech” are fundamental to the political process.

Freedom of thought maintains that all people have the right to think for themselves, including with respect to political issues. Freedom of speech is the right to voice publicly ones’ thoughts, without fear of reprisal from the government of the day (nor from one in the future).

The underlying ethic which drives a democracy is the principle that the people of a country, through a voting system, have the right to elect the government of that country. This enables the collective will and wisdom of the people of a nation to take responsibility for their countries future.
In democratic countries the power to determine what appears in newspapers, television and radio is generally held by the businesses that run these media. In non-democratic countries the power to determine what is presented in the newspapers, television and radio is generally held by the government.

In recent years the internet has provided a means by which any individual who holds knowledge on how to upload information and who has access to the hardware and software required, can present to the public domain any information he or she chooses to present. This can be something as benign as a recipe for fried rice, or something as destructive as a recipe for explosives. The information uploaded can also be (and often has been) of a political nature.

Governments, both democratic and non-democratic, have been moving towards increasing restrictions placed upon the nature of the content that can be presented and received on the internet. But the type of content chosen to prohibit will bring into contrast the views of governments in democratic countries compared to those in non-democratic countries.

Individual assignment - Hong Kong Tennis Association

Individual assignment-

    Hong Kong Tennis Association is an association to promote tennis, raise the standards of tennis by organizing competitions. Yet, no any association is perfect. It must have some improvements for it to become much better. And Hong Kong Tennis Association should have improvements of public relations.
    First and foremost, Hong Kong Tennis Association is deficient in media publics. Publics can only get in touch with it by access its website or visit its office. Lack of media reports the news about Hong Kong Tennis Association’s campaigns. Media is the biggest channel to make connections between publics and the association. Hence, it should be suggested when it holds some campaigns just like competitions in local or “Fun Day”, it is better to invite some famous people in order to attract media to come and report aims to make publics to know about Hong Kong Tennis Association.
    What is more, Hong Kong Tennis Association does not have any seminars to public. It just has some seminars for people who want to be coaches. The recommendation of it should be hold some seminars in primary or secondary schools or shopping malls that can let publics to feel more connected to it. It is because it let children to get in touch of tennis if it holds seminars in schools and let parents to know and let their children to play tennis through seminars in shopping malls.
    Apart from the inadequate of seminars, exhibitions are also important to Hong Kong Tennis Association because it has none of exhibitions to publics. It should be recommended to have exhibitions including to display information about Hong Kong Tennis Association by the broads, and to show the figures about tennis court, tennis ball, tennis racket or even some famous tennis player with details, of course including leaflets about the upcoming events and application forms of Hong Kong Tennis Association.
    Another recommendation for improvement to Hong Kong Tennis Association is the community service. It held a fun day on March before. However, it is not enough and also people want to join the fun day should register before. It is so troublesome to join it that people need to register. Free of charge of fun day is attractive to publics but it is better for publics to join it without register due to the problem of public do not know Hong Kong Tennis Association so much.
    All in all, Hong Kong Tennis Association should have more improvements of public relation because tennis is not really very common relatively for other sports in Hong Kong. If Hong Kong Tennis Association can improve public relations more, it effectively to let community can get in touch with it more. It will increase more people to play tennis and want to know more about tennis voluntarily. Therefore, Hong Kong Tennis Association is better to have improvements of public relations.

   Question 1   
  Which below are elements of a security audit and alarms model? (15.2)
 A. System logs, email logs and apache logs
 B. Operating system updates / patches, application updates / patches and anti virus updates
 C. Audit analyzer, security reports, archives and security audit trail
 D. None of the above

From the text, Stallings & Brown (2008), page 477 and 478, the elements of a security audit and alarms model are described as follows;

• Event discriminator: The is logic embedded into the software of the system that
monitors system activity and detects security-related events that it has been
configured to detect.
• Audit recorder: For each detected event, the event discriminator transmits the
information to an audit recorder. The model depicts this transmission as being in
the form of a message. The audit could also be done by recording the event in a
shared memory area.
• Alarm processor: Some of the events detected by the event discriminator are
defined to be alarm events. For such events an alarm is issued to an alarm
processor. The alarm processor takes some action based on the alarm. This action
is itself an auditable event and so is transmitted to the audit recorder.
• Security audit trail: The audit recorder creates a formatted record of each event
and stores it in the security audit trail.
• Audit analyzer: The security audit trail is available to the audit analyzer, which,
based on a pattern of activity, may define a new auditable event that is sent to the
audit recorder and may generate an alarm.
• Audit archiver: This is a software module that periodically extracts records from
the audit trail to create a permanent archive of auditable events.
• Archives: The audit archives are a permanent store of security-related events on
this system.
• Audit provider: The audit provider is an application and/or user interface to the
audit trail.
• Audit trail examiner: The audit trail examiner is an application or user who
examines the audit trail and the audit archives for historical trends, for computer
forensic purposes, and for other analysis.
• Security reports: The audit trail examiner prepares human-readable security

   Question 2   
  Which of the following *are* supported by the Cisco Systems' "Monitoring, Analysis and Response System (MARS)"?

   Question 3   
  Which of the following statements best describes "system-level audit trail"? (15.5)
 A. traces the activity of individual users over time
 B. captures data such as login attempts, both successful and unsuccessful, devices used, and OS functions performed
 C. generated by equipment that controls physical access and then transmitted to a central host for subsequent storage and analysis
 D. may be used to detect security violations within an application or to detect flaws in the application's interaction with the system

Four different categories of audit trails are;

System-level audit trails: captures data such as login attempts, both successful and unsuccessful, devices used, and OS functions performed

Application-level audit trails: may be used to detect security violations within an application or to detect flaws in the application's interaction with the system.

User-level audit trails: traces the activity of individual users over time.

Physical access audit trails: generated by equipment that controls physical access and then transmitted to a central host for subsequent storage and analysis.

subject’s address space
• Deletion of objects
• Distribution or revocation of access rights or capabilities
• Changes to subject or object security attributes
• Policy checks performed by the security software as a result of a request by a
• The use of access rights to bypass a policy check
