Network Security Hacks Second Edition by Andrew Lockhart.
The dierence between “white hat” and “black hat” hackers lies not in the tools or techniques they use (or even the color of their hats), but in their intentions. The dierence is subtle but important.
White hat hackers nd that building secure systems presents an interesting challenge, and the security of such systems can be truly tested only through a thorough knowledge of howto subvert them.
lack hat hackers (more appropriately called crackers) pursue precisely the same knowledge, but without regard for the people who built the systems or the servers they attack.
They use their knowledge to subvert these systems for their own personal gain, often to the detriment of the systems they inltrate. Of course, tales of daring international techno-robberies and blackclad, cigarette-smoking, laptop-wielding evil masterminds tend to sell better than simple tales of engineers who build strong networks, so the term hacking has gained a bad reputation in the popular press.
They use it to refer to individuals who break into systems or who wreak havoc using computers as their weapon.
Since the first edition of this strong-selling book appeared two years ago, network security techniques and tools have evolved rapidly to meet new and more sophisticated threats that pop up with alarming regularity. The second edition offers both new and thoroughly updated hacks for Linux, Windows, OpenBSD, and Mac OS X servers that not only enable readers to secure TCP/IP-based services, but helps them implement a good deal of clever host-based security techniques as well.
This second edition of Network Security Hacks offers 125 concise and practical hacks, including more information for Windows administrators, hacks for wireless networking (such as setting up a captive portal and securing against rogue hotspots), and techniques to ensure privacy and anonymity, including ways to evade network traffic analysis, encrypt email and files, and protect against phishing attacks. System administrators looking for reliable answers will also find concise examples of applied encryption, intrusion detection, logging, trending and incident response.
In fact, this “roll up your sleeves and get busy” security book features updated tips, tricks & techniques across the board to ensure that it provides the most current information for all of the major server software packages. These hacks are quick, clever, and devilishly effective.
See what are they saying about this book …
⏩The book contains a medley of useful tips and tricks, ranging from setting up Snort intrusion detection system to more eclectic usage of Onion routing to hide your true identity. I liked the book, but hoped that it would spend less time explaining how to compile these tools and more time on actually using them.
⏩This is a great book and a great series. Tons of great tips and quickly becomes and awesome reference guide.
⏩I like it. It helps me to understand how it works and how I can protect my privacy from hacks
