Learning Log 6

Aw, this is my last blog for our INFOSEC Class 😥 so sad. Huhuhu. But before we make dramas (haha) let’s just talk about our last lesson and also our Final project. Hahaha these two topics was the most interesting idea that I will share to you! 🙂 Yay!

Well, honestly when we first discuss about Physical Security, I think that topic was boring huh. I don’t think that it’s an interesting one. Haha when the first slide of Sir Infosec’s ppt  viewed in class, and I found out that’s slide was interesting na kahit unang slide pa lang (Sir di ako nagbibiro hehe) That’s slide is about a car na nahulog sa may ginagawang kalsada ng sa unahang gate ng APC. Hahaha wow, when I think about a questions……. “why these things are important?, “why we need to study this kind of stuffs?” “pero interesting siya ah” “bakit nga ba kelangan?” Sobrang I’m so excited bakit nga ba these things are important. Well, as what I learn na kahit na okay yung network mo or the application security tools mo, the data are still on risk kapag di okay si physical. 😉 Grabe I just realized na sobrang importante rin pala neto.



Okay,  I will also share to you what was our Final Project all about. Today was our presentation of the project which is Snort and it is your simple Intrusion Detection system or IDS for short. What is an Intrusion Detection System you ask? It’s a tool that sniffs the traffic that is trying to connect to the network. It is placed right beside the firewall or behind the firewall because if it is placed in front of the firewall, it will sniff out and alert all the traffic that occurs. It can sniff out the traffic which the firewall didn’t detect and block. It is only an alert system, meaning that it only alerts the user or the admin, it has no capability of blocking the traffic that is ongoing. Its alert can be customized in the rules file which you can specify what protocol is to be the trigger for the alarm, what IP address and what port for the network, and what message should be displayed if the said alarm is triggered.

Our group present our topic well. I learned a lot on this subject but also I learned a lot with my group mates. I really want to speak in front of the class when we’re discussing the topic 😦 so sad but it’s okay. Our leader stated and discussed our project excellently!! Yay! (Neks nemen) I learned to study our topic on my own, and ask a help to my group mates if I didn’t understand what I’m doing, hahaha. Our friendship stay strong, though we’re only four and loner sa classroom everyday 😦 haha joke ♥ we’re happy naman!! hihi :*

Thanks for helping us to learn and understand the lessons well Sir Justin! Thanks din po sa patience na ginigive mo samin every day na kahit minsan we’re so maingay and makulit. This subject will be a great help for us!!!! YAY




Learning Log 5

Well, palapit na ng palapit ang pagtatapos ng klase at malapit ng malaman ang katotohan ng ating mga marka. 😛 Charot!! These two weeks, we have a lot of lessons discussed! Wooo! 🙂 Honestly, these is one of my most favorite discussion!!! I REALLY REALLY LIKE THESE LESSONS SO MUCH 🙂 Because I understand it very well!! WOW! Thank God for that!! (hehe)


We have so many topic discussed, but today I will just share you about what is my fave topic these past 2 weeks :))) that’s always in my mind (Huh?) It’s just that this topic is yung topic na kapag tinanong sayo or nakita mo somewhere or whatever you’ll just say na “Ay oo ayan yung……” :)))) Yay!!!

So many chikkas 😛 sorry. Now let’s start about what I learned…. Hehe. The Broadcast domain and Collision domain, well a broadcast domain is the number of all devices which will receive the broadcast packet while the collision domain is the number of chances that a collision may happen. Well, maybe you’re thinking what is the use of knowing these?! The importance if these is that the person can know how many occurrence of collision and broadcast domain happens in the network! 😉 Odiba!! Bongga! Hahahahaha.


The second topic that really understand in the lesson is that “What is a firewall? what is the importance of it? Ahuh:) A firewall is network that controls incoming and outgoing network traffic based on a set of rules. And the importance of this is that, to prevent any un trusted connections from connection to the network. It is used to block most of the un trusted sites to keep the network safe from outside attack or any infiltration that may cause the network to be damage. With the use of firewalls, attack and sites with malicious intent from the internet are blocked so that the network will continue to function well. These firewalls act as a security for the designated network


Additionally, I enjoyed our recent activity which is Implementing Access Control and Local Security. Grabe!! In this acivity, Sir Infosec gave us the instruction on what and how we will do about it. The links, instruction and all. But its not that easy for me because, di lang talaga ikaw magpipipindot, but also kelangan mong matutunan ang lahat ng mga ginagawa mo for the sake na maayos at successful ang pag follow mo. Haha this activity is so awesome!! This will be a great additional knowledge for us to share with other and to learn things like this! Yay!!!! But take note na you need to LISTEN AND LISTEN AND LISTEN to your professor so that you will really understands the topics!!! YAY! =)

That’s all for today! Goodbye! 😉
