Not only are kids amazing in their ability to comprehend computers so young, they often lend themselves to real life examples of some common computer security terms. Here are just a few:
Man in the Middle attack:
Standing downstairs I realize I need to ask my wife a question I shout up to her, and after a brief delay she acknowledges me. I ask her my question “did you say the kids could have candy before lunch?”, and again after a slight delay I get her response “sure”. This seems odd so I walk upstairs to clarify only to find one of my sons had been relaying the question to her, and she hadn’t said sure to MY question.
Denial of Service:
My wife had a late meeting and I was attempting to make dinner. As I was standing at the stove the sink turned on. I looked to see my daughter playing in the water standing on a stool. I picked her off the stool, took her to the toy box and put the stool back. As I attempted to start dinner, again the sink came on with my daughter giggling. Her and I played this little came longer than I realized because when my wife walked in half an hour later she inquired why I hadn’t started dinner.
Distributed Denial of Service:
Having kids means running them around to activities. I often call my wife on the way home from work. Like clock work, if she is running the kids around, they each need something from her while she is on the phone. At the height of the choras of “Mommy” she says “I need to call you back.”
