The Barnes & Noble Review
Yes, netadmins need a high-level strategy for keeping the hackers out. But if they can’t use the “low-level” tools available to them, they’re cooked. The hacker’s own toolset can help netadmins identify their own vulnerabilities; add to that new tools for forensic analysis and incident response. Some professionals are paying over $1,000 a day for training on these tools. With Anti-Hacker Tool Kit, you can master all of them for a whole lot less.

The authors, serious “white hats,” cover essential multifunctional tools like Netcat; useful commands built into Linux/Unix systems (ping, traceroute, et al.); and dozens of tools for port scanning, network enumeration, web hacking, password cracking, backdoors, even identifying code that’s susceptible to buffer overflow. There’s a full chapter on new wireless “war driving” tools that target today’s disconcertingly vulnerable Wi-Fi networks.

You’ll also find thorough coverage of live response and forensic duplication toolkits, each with detailed case studies. The CD-ROM contains every tool covered here, so you can get rolling fast -- which would be wise. (Bill Camarda)

Bill Camarda is a consultant, writer, and web/multimedia content developer. His 15 books include Special Edition Using Word 2000 and Upgrading & Fixing Networks For Dummies®, Second Edition.

Explains how to use 100 plus software tools for auditing systems on a network, auditing a network, and investigating incidents. The authors also overview some of the most common hacking programs used in attacks, and how to detect them on a system. Topics include port scanners, vulnerability scanners, password crackers, and war dialers. Among the specific products described are Netcat, Nessus, Tripwire, John the Ripper, and the Forensic Toolkit. The CD-ROM contains demonstration and open source security tools. Annotation c.

I personally know K. Jones, one of the authors of this book, and let me tell you ladies, this man is a hottie bizottie! AND he know's his stuff! If you want a real man who is not only Don Juan sexified, but is also a premier network security specialist writing the books that you use on your network, Keith Jones is the MAN.
