What is a Brute Force Attack?
A brute force attack is a trial-and-error attack using a repetitive method to obtain information such as a username and password or personal identification number (PIN), until it gets in. An automated software is used to generate a large number of consecutive guesses and may be used by criminals to crack encrypted data or by security analysts to test an organization’s network security.
Dataplugs Brute Force Attack Prevention
Your confidential information is not as safe as you think due to the threat of Brute Force Attack, attackers from the internet will attempt the following ways to access your data:
Dictionary-based attack – Attackers use social engineering to establish cracking dictionaries that contain usernames and passwords to improve attack efficiency.
Exhaustion attack – Possible account and password combinations will be list by attackers and they pair the combinations one by one according to password length ranging of numbers, upper and lower case letters, and special characters. But this method demand high-performance cracking algorithms and CPU/GPU.
Combined attack – This method involves a combination of dictionary-based attack and an exhaustion attack.
For the user, the longer time left for the attacker, the higher chance of combining the correct username and password. Therefore, how to identify and detect Brute Force Attacks in a short time is very important.
