(https://www.cs.ucy.ac.cy/~chryssis/specs/ACM-refguide.pdf) . Points will be deducted for improper

This is a research assignment. The objectives of the assignment are to get you thinking about the principles of ethical hacking, take a look at security tools, and also research on DDoS attacks.
Exercise 1: In the lectures, we discussed the importance of ethical hacking. The lecture notes also list a number of resources on ethical hacking. Read online resources on this subject and in your own words, write one paragraph (max. 300 words) on one principle that you consider as important in ethical hacking – that is, what would you do in your career to be ethical? Be sure to cite your references at the end of the paragraph. Citations are not part of the word count.
Exercise 2: www.sectools.org offers a rich catalog of network security tools, including their classification, ratings, links to the tool’s website, and reviews. Visit the website and pick one network security tool. Ensure that you select a tool that is used for ethical hacking and network administration. Conduct an exploration of the tool and write a short summary report on the tool. In your report, describe the tool’s features, what it provides, and how it works. Also, outline how it is useful to a network security specialist and how it may be used for harmful purposes by a hacker.
Length of the report: Approximately 1.5 – 2 pages, single line spacing, 11-point font size. Place figures in an appendix (that is, figures are not part of the 1.5-2 page report.
Citations: If you prefer to only www.sectools.org, no need to cite it. If you refer to other resources, cite them.
Exercise 3: Explore online resources and write a short summary report on one DDoS attack. In your report, identify who was the target of the attack, possible motives, how the DDoS attack was launched, and what possible measures could have been taken to mitigate the attack.
Length of the report: 750-1000 words. Place figures and citations at the end of the report. Citations are not part of the word count. For more information on Network Security check on this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_security
