Description : Internet Security incorporates not only the technology needed to support a solid security strategy but also those policies and processes that must be incorporated in order for that strategy to work. New methods of breaking into corporate networks are resulting in major losses. This book provides the latest information on how to guard against attacks and informs the IT manager of the products that can detect and prevent break-ins. Crucial concepts such as authentication and encryption are explained, enabling the reader to understand when and where these technologies will be useful. Due to the authors' experiences in helping corporations develop secure networks, they are able to include the newest methods for protecting corporate data. · Shield data from both the internal and external intruder · Discover products that can detect and prevent these break-ins · Protect against major losses with the latest incident handling procedures for detecting and recovering data from new viruses · Get details of a full security business review from performing the security risk analysis to justifying security expenditures based on your company's business needs
Description : Introduces the authors' philosophy of Internet security, explores possible attacks on hosts and networks, discusses firewalls and virtual private networks, and analyzes the state of communication security.
Description : As organizations today are linking their systems across enterprise-wide networks and VPNs as well as increasing their exposure to customers, competitors, browsers and hackers on the Internet, it becomes increasingly imperative for Web professionals to be trained in techniques for effectively protecting their sites from internal and external threats. Each connection magnifies the vulnerability to attack. With the increased connectivity to the Internet and the wide availability of automated cracking tools, organizations can no longer simply rely on operating system security to protect their valuable corporate data. Furthermore, the exploding use of Web technologies for corporate intranets and Internet sites has escalated security risks to corporate data and information systems. Practical Internet Security reveals how the Internet is paving the way for secure communications within organizations and on the public Internet. This book provides the fundamental knowledge needed to analyze risks to a system and to implement a security policy that protects information assets from potential intrusion, damage, or theft. It provides dozens of real-life scenarios and examples, as well as hands-on instruction in securing Web communications and sites. You will learn the common vulnerabilities of Web sites; as well as, how to carry out secure communications across unsecured networks. All system administrators and IT security managers will find this book an essential practical resource.
Description : Knowledge of number theory and abstract algebra are pre-requisites for any engineer designing a secure internet-based system. However, most of the books currently available on the subject are aimed at practitioners who just want to know how the various tools available on the market work and what level of security they impart. These books traditionally deal with the science and mathematics only in so far as they are necessary to understand how the tools work. Internet Security differs by its assertion that cryptography is the single most important technology for securing the Internet. To quote one reviewer "if every one of your communication partners were using a secure system based on encryption, viruses, worms and hackers would have a very hard time". This scenario does not reflect the reality of the Internet world as it currently stands. However, with security issues becoming more and more important internationally, engineers of the future will be required to design tougher, safer systems. Internet Security: * Offers an in-depth introduction to the relevant cryptographic principles, algorithms protocols - the nuts and bolts of creating a secure network * Links cryptographic principles to the technologies in use on the Internet, eg. PGP, S/MIME, IPsec, SSL TLS, Firewalls and SET (protecting credit card transactions) * Provides state-of-the-art analysis of the latest IETF standards plus summaries and explanations of RFC documents * Authored by a recognised expert in security Internet Security is the definitive text for graduate students on security and cryptography courses, and researchers in security and cryptography areas. It will prove to be invaluable to professionals engaged in the long-term development of secure systems.
Description : This collection of papers, articles, and monographs details the ethical landscape as it exists for the distinct areas of Internet and network security, including moral justification of hacker attacks, the ethics behind the freedom of information which contributes to hacking, and the role of the law in policing cyberspace.
Description : Details the key impacts and risk assessment within the context of technology-enabled information (TEI). This volume is designed as a secondary text for graduate students, and also for a professional audience of researchers and practitioners in industry.
Description : Annotation nbsp; Essential security strategies using Cisco's complete solution to network security! The only book to cover interoperability among the Cisco Secure product family to provide the holistic approach to Internet security. The first book to provide Cisco proactive solutions to common Internet threats. A source of industry-ready pre-built configurations for the Cisco Secure product range. Cisco Systems strives to help customers build secure internetworks through network design featuring its Cisco Secure product family. At present, no available publication deals with Internet security from a Cisco perspective. Cisco Secure Internet Security Solutions covers the basics of Internet security and then concentrates on each member of the Cisco Secure product family, providing a rich explanation with examples of the preferred configurations required for securing Internet connections. The Cisco Secure PIX Firewall is covered in depth from an architectural point of view to provide a reference of the PIX commands and their use in the real world. Although Cisco Secure Internet Security Solutions is concerned with Internet security, it is also viable to use in general network security scenarios. nbsp; Andrew Mason is the CEO of Mason Technologies Limited, a Cisco Premier Partner in the U.K. whose main business is delivered through Cisco consultancy focusing on Internet security. Andrew has hands-on experience of the Cisco Secure product family with numerous clients ranging from ISPs to large financial organizations. Currently, Andrew is leading a project to design and implement the most secure ISP network in Europe. Andrew holds the Cisco CCNP and CCDP certifications. nbsp; Mark Newcomb is currently a consulting engineer at Aurora Consulting Group in Spokane, Washington. Mark holds CCNP and CCDP certifications. Mark has 4 years experience working with network security issues and a total of over 20 years experience within the networking industry. Mark is a frequent contributor and reviewer for books by Cisco Press, McGraw-Hill, Coriolis, New Riders, and Macmillan Technical Publishing.
