Title: Cyberattack types - methods and technics for protection of communication resources
Keywords: cyberattacks, hackers, security, protection, vulnerabilities

Abstract: The paper is focused on analysis of the main types of cyberattacks and how this can help with ethical hacking. Instead of the analysis performed for some of those attacks will be proposed a technique and specifics of algorithms for protection against them. The paper will present how ethical hacking can be implemented as a part of test process for hardware or software. Also which of the malicious actions can be successfully used in smart homes. This is becoming increasingly relevant and important for the daily live of the ordinary people.
