Secure Communication can be defined as a method to communicate sensitive
information to another entity without any possible interception.
Being a huge company which manufactures aircrafts and jet liners for the
military, Boeing has high needs to rely on secure communication method to share
information at various degrees of sensitivity.
To make sure the information is secure, it would be appropriate for
Boeing to incorporate some the Secure Communication protocols mentioned below.
TLS : Transport Layer Security
Transport Layer Security also known as a TSL is a protocol that gives
security and information uprightness between two conveying applications. It’s
the most broadly conveyed security convention utilized today, and is utilized
for Web programs and different applications that expect information to be
safely traded over a system.
TLS is utilized for transferring information via files, IM, VoIP and
also the VPN connections.
TLS developed from Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol and has to a
great extent superseded it, in spite of the fact that the terms SSL or SSL/TLS
are still once in a while utilized. Key contrasts amongst SSL and TLS that make
TLS a more secure and effective protocol are message confirmation, key material
age and the bolstered figure suites, with TLS supporting more up to date and
more secure calculations.
TLS and SSL are not interoperable, however TLS at present gives some
retrogressive similarity so as to work with inheritance frameworks.
TLS comprises of 2 levels: TLS Record Protocol and TLS Handshake
The Record Protocol gives association security, while the Handshake
Protocol enables the server and customer to confirm each other and to arrange
encryption calculations and cryptographic keys before any information is
HTTPS: Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (aka HTTP)
HTTP is a protocol for networking that a that aides the exchange of
information between a customer, for instance a program and a server, which
ordinarily is a PC facilitating a site.
HTTPS isn’t something you can basically turn on. It is an administration
gave by sites and must be empowered when advertised. Be that as it may, there
are an ever-increasing number of sites that do give this administration.
Shockingly, most don’t offer HTTPS as a default association and
physically changing from HTTP to HTTPS is badly arranged and therefore
HTTPS is available through extensions on the browsers like Chrome and
Firefox. It is a service the website can offer.
As part of Unified Communications revolution, Boeing should adapt these
protocols to ensure privacy and integrity in their communications.
