Elements of the Protection and Security of Communications on the Internet

Elementi zasite i sigurnosti komunikacija na internetu

This paper describes the elements of protection and safety communications as well as their importance with regard to privacy of communications, the more complicated the global Internet communications space. Seen in this context, the work points out that in addition to analog - physical security of assets, there is a need to protect the computer “property”. The study focuses on the elements of protection and security of communication on the Internet as a global communications network. Therefore, encryption of messages of data and information enables secure exchange between the sender and recipient on the overall physical communication space. For these reasons, the paper points out that the problems of safety and security communication mainly addressed through authentication and encryption via a public key, which allows a relatively simple but highly secure communication between the user and the communications network. Therefore, with the public key encryption, in using is AES encryption which is currently considered the best method of encryption of data and information, ie, the message in the communications on the Internet. In this context, the paper points out that users want to be sure that their computers are used, and also that they will have access to their data, only those who are allowed to access. However, in addition to these requirements, there are many others, and they also appeared other categories within the area of computer security, and are related to authentication, cryptography, the system of ownership of files and databases, as a segment of the security communication. Due to the number and frequency of threats to computer security, shown concrete data for the EU countries and Croatia in the period of the past five years, often in global communications use various forms of protection, such as firewall, intrusion detection systems,etc.
