Book Description :

This book focuses on installing, configuring and optimizing Nessus, which is a remote security scanner for Linux, BSD, Solaris, and other Unices. It is plug-in-based, has a GTK interface, and performs over 1200 remote security checks. It allows for reports to be generated in HTML, XML, LaTeX, and ASCII text, and suggests solutions for security problems. As with many open source programs, Nessus is incredibly popular, incredibly powerful, and incredibly under-documented. There are many Web sites (including nessus.org) where thousands of users congregate to share tips, tricks, and hints, yet no single, comprehensive resource exists. This book, written by Nessus lead developers, will document all facets of deploying Nessus on a production network. * Nessus is the premier Open Source vulnerability assessment tool, and was recently voted the "most popular" open source security tool of any kind. * This is the first book available on Nessus and it is written by the world's premier Nessus developers led by the creator of Nessus, Renaud Deraison. * The dramatic success of Syngress' SNORT 2.0 INTRUSION DETECTION clearly illustrates the strong demand for books that offer comprehensive documentation of Open Source security tools that are otherwise Undocumented.

Book Description :

Wireless networking has become standard in many business and government networks. This book is the first book that focuses on the methods used by professionals to perform WarDriving and wireless pentration testing. Unlike other wireless networking and security books that have been published in recent years, this book is geared primarily to those individuals that are tasked with performing penetration testing on wireless networks. This book continues in the successful vein of books for penetration testers such as Google Hacking for Penetration Testers and Penetration Tester’s Open Source Toolkit. Additionally, the methods discussed will prove invaluable for network administrators tasked with securing wireless networks. By understanding the methods used by penetration testers and attackers in general, these administrators can better define the strategies needed to secure their networks. * According to a study by the Strategis Group more than one third of the words population will own a wireless device by the end of 2008. * The authors have performed hundreds of wireless penetration tests, modeling their attack methods after those used by real world attackers. * Unlike other wireless books, this is geared specifically for those individuals that perform security assessments and penetration tests on wireless networks.

Book Description :

Rather than being a traditional planning, design, and implementation guide, this book is a serious resource for Windows experts to find tips, tricks, and best practices for implementing and supporting key Windows Server 2003 technologies. The authors started working with Windows Server 2003 (then codename Whistler) just days after the code for Windows 2000 was locked, when most organizations were getting a first chance to see the Windows 2000 server product. With more than three years of experience working with Whistler in early beta and production implementations, the authors of this book have provided a resource to help you make Windows 2003 technologies work properly. When given a choice of different ways of implementing the technologies, you can turn to this book for the best practices of successful field implementations. This book is organized into eight parts focusing around a core technological solution area, with several chapters making up each part. Sections include security, management, design, migration, business continuity, performance, and business productivity.

Book Description :

This book provides a recent and relevant coverage based on a systematic approach. Especially suitable for practitioners and managers, the book has also been classroom tested in IS/IT courses on security. It presents a systematic approach to build total systems solutions that combine policies, procedures, risk analysis, threat assessment through attack trees, honeypots, audits, and commercially available security packages to secure the modern IT assets (applications, databases, hosts, middleware services and platforms) as well as the paths (the wireless plus wired network) to these assets. After covering the security management and technology principles, the book shows how these principles can be used to protect the digital enterprise assets. The emphasis is on modern issues such as e-commerce, e-business and mobile application security; wireless security that includes security of Wi-Fi LANs, cellular networks, satellites, wireless home networks, wireless middleware, and mobile application servers; semantic Web security with a discussion of XML security; Web Services security, SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language)and .NET security; integration of control and audit concepts in establishing a secure environment. Numerous real-life examples and a single case study that is developed throughout the book highlight a case-oriented approach. Complete instructor materials (PowerPoint slides, course outline, project assignments) to support an academic or industrial course are provided.
