The Hacker’s Handbook: The Strategy Behind Breaking Into and Defending Networks, moves ahead of the pack of books about digital security by revealing the technical aspects of hacking that are least understood by network administrators. This is accomplished by analyzing subjects through a hacking/security dichotomy that details hacking maneuvers and defenses in the same context. Chapters are organized around specific technical components and administrative tasks, providing theoretical background that prepares network defenders for the always-changing and creative tools and techniques of intruders. This book is divided into three parts. Part I introduces programming, protocol, and attack concepts. Part II addresses subject areas (protocols, services, technologies, etc.) that may be vulnerable. Part III details consolidation activities that hackers may use following penetration. Each section provides a “path” to hacking/security Web sites and other resources that augment existing content. Referencing these supplemental and constantly-updated resources ensures that this volume remains timely and enduring. By informing IT professionals how to think like hackers, this book serves as a valuable weapon in the fight to protect digital assets.

The 2004 enlargement of NATO and the EU is widely considered to be the last stage in overcoming the division of Europe. Even if this is true, however, the euphoria that came with the end of the Cold War has now run its course. Both NATO and the EU are facing major challenges, and it is far from clear whether the enlarged organisations will be more capable of tackling crucial security issues that their smaller incarnations were unable to resolve. How can the newly enlarged organisations project global influence if the competing interests of their member states outweigh their willingness to compromise? Moreover, is there a danger of Europe splitting between an "in group and those who are left "outside? At stake are the credibility and reliability of NATO and the EU, which see themselves as the most important guarantors of European security and cooperation. The Security Handbook examines the national interests of various Eastern and Central European countries regarding enlargement. Thes
