Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
As companies have come to understand just how vulnerable their networks are, they've increasingly turned to intrusion detection systems as a key defense weapon. But deploying and managing these systems isn't easy. If you've chosen the Cisco Secure Intrusion Detection System, Cisco's new guidebook will make it a lot simpler.

Building on the information in Cisco's own course, this book begins by showing where intrusion detection fits into a broader enterprise security strategy, what IDS systems can and cannot accomplish, and how Cisco's approach compares to other alternatives. Next, the authors walk through deployment: analyzing your network to place sensors in the best locations; configuring the Windows-based Cisco Secure Policy Manager; and installing 4200 Series Sensors within CSPM.

Then, it's on to working with the system on a day-to-day basis: understanding the significance of alarms; and working with the "attack signatures" that allow your IDS to recognize attacks in the first place. You'll learn how to configure IP blocking, sensors, the Catalyst 6000 IDS module, and filtering signatures. Finally, if you're running either Cisco Secure ID Director or the low-end Cisco IOS Firewall IDS, you'll learn how to configure these as well.

Each chapter ends with an extensive set of review questions designed to help you prepare for the Cisco Secure IDS Policy Manager exam, which is part of Cisco's new Cisco Security Specialist 1 certification program. But whether you're preparing for an exam or "merely" protecting your key digital assets, if you're using CSIDS, this book is essential. (Bill Camarda)
