How many of the 19 Hacker's Challenges in this book can you handle?
You'll get the same evidence you'd see as a network administrator facing an attack in progress, or the entrails of an attack that's already taken place. Then, the challenge: What's really going on here? What is its significance? What can you do about it?
Once you've had time to mull things over, the authors provide detailed solutions to each challenge question -- as well as practical techniques for preventing and mitigating similar attacks.
Thousands of netadmins honed their network security and forensic chops on the first edition of Hacker's Challenge. This edition is entirely new, with all new exploits. The challenges run the gamut of contemporary network security problems, from defaced home pages to hijacked emails, "man in the middle attacks" to wireless network intrusions.
Like this: You get an email stating that your customer credit card database has been hacked and demanding $150,000. You get the firewall and database firewall rules, the complete email headers, network diagrams, database and web server log files. How did it happen? How could you tell?
We’ve seen plenty of excellent network and Internet security books by now. But these Hacker’s Challenge books are uniquely capable of bringing the subject to life. If you’re responsible for protecting a network, this book will show you how good you really are -- and how to get better, fast. Bill Camarda
