Western interests in the Asia-Pacific region have dramatically expanded over the last few years; particularly in terms of economic relationships and commercial investment. While economic development is predicted to continue in the region, the assumption of political stability on which it depends is clouded major security uncertainties lurking in the background, these could undermine the relative stability the region has come to expect, and new strains and fissures could develop in the region that would likely reverberate elsewhere. Featuring nineteen individual country profiles, which makes a unique contribution to the existing literature, this volume seeks to shed light on the key political and security factors and geopolitical trends that bear monitoring and to point out new trends that have greater significance in the post-Cold War environment.

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.

Sie können noch so viel in Hardware, Software und Abwehrmechanismen investieren, absolute Sicherheit für Ihre IT-Infrastruktur wird es nicht geben. Wenn Hacker sich wirklich anstrengen, werden sie auch in Ihr System gelangen. Sollte das geschehen, müssen Sie sowohl technisch als auch organisatorisch so aufgestellt sein, dass Sie die Gegenwart eines Hackers erkennen und darauf reagieren können. Sie müssen in der Lage sein, einen Zwischenfall zu deklarieren und die Angreifer aus Ihrem Netzwerk zu vertreiben, bevor sie erheblichen Schaden anrichten. Das ist Network Security Monitoring (NSM). Lernen Sie von dem leitenden Sicherheitsanalytiker Sanders die Feinheiten des Network Security Monitoring kennen. Konzepte verstehen und Network Security Monitoring mit Open-Source-Tools durchführen: Lernen Sie die drei NSM-Phasen kennen, um diese in der Praxis anzuwenden. Die praktische Umsetzung der NSM erfolgt mit vielen Open-Source-Werkzeugen wie z. B. Bro, Daemonlogger, Dumpcap, Justniffer, Honeyd, Httpry, Netsniff-NG, Sguil, SiLK, Snorby Snort, Squert, Suricata, TShark und Wireshark.

How secure is your network? The best way to find out is to attack it. Network Security Assessment provides you with the tricks and tools professional security consultants use to identify and assess risks in Internet-based networks-the same penetration testing model they use to secure government, military, and commercial networks. With this book, you can adopt, refine, and reuse this testing model to design and deploy networks that are hardened and immune from attack. Network Security Assessment demonstrates how a determined attacker scours Internet-based networks in search of vulnerable components, from the network to the application level. This new edition is up-to-date on the latest hacking techniques, but rather than focus on individual issues, it looks at the bigger picture by grouping and analyzing threats at a high-level. By grouping threats in this way, you learn to create defensive strategies against entire attack categories, providing protection now and into the future. Network Security Assessment helps you assess: Web services, including Microsoft IIS, Apache, Tomcat, and subsystems such as OpenSSL, Microsoft FrontPage, and Outlook Web Access (OWA) Web application technologies, including ASP, JSP, PHP, middleware, and backend databases such as MySQL, Oracle, and Microsoft SQL Server Microsoft Windows networking components, including RPC, NetBIOS, and CIFS services SMTP, POP3, and IMAP email services IP services that provide secure inbound network access, including IPsec, Microsoft PPTP, and SSL VPNs Unix RPC services on Linux, Solaris, IRIX, and other platforms Various types of application-level vulnerabilities that hacker tools and scripts exploit Assessment is the first step any organization should take to start managing information risks correctly. With techniques to identify and assess risks in line with CESG CHECK and NSA IAM government standards, Network Security Assessment gives you a precise method to do just that.
