 active window - Hutchinson encyclopedia article about active window   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Usually active windows are easily identified by the use of colour schemes that assign a different colour to the window's title bar (a thin strip along the top of each window bearing the name of the window's specific program or function) from that of the title bars of inactive windows.
On a true multitasking system, each window may represent an active program, but the active window is the one into which the user may enter data.
In some windowing systems the active window is also referred to as the window in, or with, focus.

 TSCM - Types of Wiretaps, Bugs and Methods
Wiretapping is the preferred method of obtaining intelligence (for quality reasons), it involves tying in to a wire or other conductor that is used for communications.
The goal in a wiretapping is to secure high quality information, and to minimize the possibility of the eavesdropping being detected (remember radiated signals are easy to detect).
Wiretaps are extremely difficult to detect (if properly installed), require a very high level of technical expertise, and a great deal of equipment to locate.

However, active wiretapping that changes data could also change an accompanying checksum to match the changed data.
To protect against active attacks, the checksum function needs to be well-chosen (see: cryptographic hash), and the checksum result needs to be cryptographically protected (see: digital signature, keyed hash).
Passive wiretapping cannot learn the shared k, because k is not transmitted, and neither are the private keys needed to compute k.

 Introduction to FreeS/WAN
Active attacks, which involve the intruder sending packets to your system (like packets that break into sendmail and give them a root shell :-) are much harder to guard against.
Active attacks that involve sending people (breaking into your house and replacing parts of your computer with ones that transmit what you're doing) are also much harder to guard against.
The software will be particularly useful to frequent wiretapping targets such as private companies competing with government-owned companies, civil rights groups and lawyers, opposition political parties, and dissidents.

A wiretap can be done covertly so that neither the sender nor the receiver of a communication will know that the contents have been intercepted.
Active code or mobile code is a general name for code that is pushed to the client for execution.
For example, a wiretapping attack may yield reconnaissance information with which to form an ActiveX attack that transfers a Trojan horse that monitors for sensitive data in transmission.

An attacker could send spurious BGP traffic (active wiretapping), or could attack the workstations used for management of the routers, and thus attack the system indirectly.
This mechanism, if it were employed, would offer protection only against wiretapping attacks effected on the links between BGP routers.
In practice, this field is not used; instead, a modified form of TCP checksum, based on a keyed MD5 hash algorithm, is sometimes employed.

Installing wiretaps at the end points of a connection may be straightforward, but such taps are also the easiest to detect.
Because all of the routers within an AS are under the control of the same administrative entity, and because there is little evidence of active wiretapping of intra-AS links, there may be a perception that the proposed cryptographic countermeasures are too expensive relative to the protection afforded.
The primary active elements of an Internet-based network—the routers—are, by design, accessible from the network they control, and the network's routing protocols execute in-band with the communications they control.

 [ISN] DHS moves ahead with cybersecurity R&D efforts
http://www.computerworld.com/securitytopics/security/story/0,10801,95942,00.html By Dan Verton SEPTEMBER 15, 2004 COMPUTERWORLD SAN MATEO, Calif. -- The Department of Homeland Security is actively planning several new pilot projects that officials hope will help solve one of the most pressing cybersecurity research problems to date: a lack of real-world attack data.
The current BGP architecture makes it particularly vulnerable to human error as well as malicious attacks against routers, the links between routers and the management stations that control the routers, said Maughan.
Specific concerns, said Maughan, include the ability of attacks to reroute traffic to enable passive or active wiretapping.
