Abstract [en]

The advancement of the internet across the globe has made computer users implement several ways of protection against possible network threats. The goal of this thesis is to analyse vulnerabilities and threats that may occur in a home network and design a vulnerability classification for home users with the help of Kali Linux. The classification is proposed and briefly evaluated. Computer network threats are also examined in this thesis together with the network vulnerabilities and corresponding network security recommendations for these systems. Home users have a need for security and privacy being provided. There have been a number of recent security breaches affecting home users leading to mistrust among the users. Due to different classification of threats, there is a need for a common threat classification scheme that can help to improve the understanding of threats among different researchers. This thesis focuses on investigating possible vulnerabilities in a home network and consequently designing a vulnerability classification for home users.
