Example 6: Access Control and Encryption

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the libraries from the Network Security Diagrams Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.

The access control is used to limit the access of some users categories to a certain device, web server, application server or a database. The encryption is one of ways to access control, it lets to convert the plain text into the ciphertext that is looks like the set of random characters. And only the application of a key lets transform it backwards to the plain text. Typically, the key is a mathematical algorithm known only to the sender of message and its intended recipient, moreover for encryption and decryption of information should be used the same key, otherwise the text reading will be impossible. This computer security diagram was designed with help of the Network Security Diagrams solution tools on the base of the diagram from the website of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and describes how to secure the data using together the access control and encryption.

Example 10: Mobile App Security

This diagram was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the libraries from the Network Security Diagrams Solution. An experienced user spent 10 minutes creating this sample.

The range of applications for modern mobile devices impresses with its diversity. However, not many of them, even the most popular, secure and encrypt the information that they send or receive. This often turns by a serious threat to users and their devices, especially when you work with your bank account, fill the taxes, or make the purchases with a credit card. This sample was designed on the base of diagram from the article "How secure is that mobile app?" of N.V. Fleming published on the website of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Often the companies not validate security certificates to make sure that the apps sent the information to the right place. So, the users are susceptible to the attacks of the “man in the middle”, which remaining unnoticed can simply trick the app and allows it the access to communications between the app and online service. The best way of protection is to use secure networks, which obligatory encrypt the information.
