Book Details Paperback: 480 pages Publisher: Cisco Press (August 2007) Language: English ISBN-10:1587053322 ISBN-13: 978-1587053320 File Size: 23.0 MB End-to-End Network Security: Defense-in-Depth Best practices for assessing and improving network defenses and responding to security incidents Information security practices have evolved from Internet perimeter protection to an in-depth defense model in which multiple countermeasures are layered throughout the infrastructure to address vulnerabilities and attacks. This is necessary due to increased attack frequency, diverse attack sophistication, and the rapid nature of attack velocity-all blurring the boundaries between the network and perimeter. End-to-End Network Security is designed to counter the new generation of complex threats. Adopting this robust security strategy defends against highly sophisticated attacks that can occur at multiple locations in your network. The ultimate goal is to deploy a set of security capabilities that together create an intelligent, self-defending network that identifies attacks as they occur, generates alerts as appropriate, and then automatically responds. End-to-End Network Security provides you with a comprehensive look at the mechanisms to counter threats to each part of your network. The book starts with a review of network security technologies then covers the six-step methodology for incident response and best practices from proactive security frameworks. Later chapters cover wireless network security, IP telephony security, data center security, and IPv6 security. Finally, several case studies representing small, medium, and large enterprises provide detailed example configurations and implementation strategies of best practices learned in earlier chapters. Adopting the techniques and strategies outlined in this book enables you to prevent day-zero attacks, improve your overall security posture, build strong policies, and deploy intelligent, self-defending networks. “Within these pages, you will find many practical tools, both process related and technology related, that you can draw on to improve your risk mitigation strategies.” -Bruce Murphy, Vice President, World Wide Security Practices, Cisco Omar Santos is a senior network security engineer at Cisco®.

  10. Book Details Paperback: 185 pages Publisher:Â Jesse Storimer (October 2012) Language: English ISBN-10:n/a ISBN-13: n/a File Size: 919.8 KB Do you know how your web server opens a socket, binds to an address, and accepts a connection? I did a lot of web programming before I had enough knowledge to dig in and figure this stuff out. I knew that other developers had a better grasp on the full stack than I did, but diving deep under the hood is one of the things that really made me a better developer all around. I recently read a great thread that asked “What did the really successful programmers do differently?”. This response really caught my eye: Be ready, willing, & able to deep dive multiple levels at any time. You must know what’s going on under the hood. There is a strong correlation between “number of levels of deepness understood” and “programming prowess”. In this book I’ll teach you these fundamentals using Ruby. I’ll start with the fundamentals that are portable to any environment. Then I’ll show you the beautiful abstractions that Ruby has layered on top of them. Learning this stuff doesn’t just apply to Ruby, or any other language. Every modern programming language has support for networking. Every language has their own way of doing things. But all modern languages support the Berkeley Sockets API. Ruby is no exception. There’s certainly plenty of syntactic sugar, but below the sugar you can use the same Sockets API that you would in C, Java, Python, whatever. This is portable knowledge that will serve you for many years to come. What you’ll learn: The steps in the lifecycle of servers and clients. The various ways that we can read and write data in Ruby, and when they’re appropriate. All the things you were never quite sure about: EOF, listen queues, TCPNODELAY, and tons more. The low level methods required for constructing sockets, as well as the syntactic sugar that Ruby provides. Known methods that will help you improve socket performance. Basics of SSL sockets. Should you write a lot of data at once or chunk it into smaller writes? Get comfortable with the socket programming API that’s available in any modern programming language. More example code than you shake a stick at! A look at 6 different architecture patterns for building concurrency into your network programs. A closer look at a few different protocols: FTP and Redis. Multiplexing connections, non-blocking IO, socket timeouts, socket options, and more… Download E-Book Uploaded Link [Hidden Content]

Fully updated for the newest innovations, it demonstrates each protocol in action through realistic examples from modern Linux, Windows, and Mac OS environments. There’s no better way to discover why TCP/IP works as it does, how it reacts to common conditions, and how to apply it in your own applications and networks. Building on the late W. Richard Stevens’ classic first edition, author Kevin R. Fall adds his cutting-edge experience as a leader in TCP/IP protocol research, updating the book to fully reflect the latest protocols and best practices. He first introduces TCP/IP’s core goals and architectural concepts, showing how they can robustly connect diverse networks and support multiple services running concurrently. Next, he carefully explains Internet addressing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Then, he walks through TCP/IP’s structure and function from the bottom up: from link layer protocols such as Ethernet and Wi-Fi through network, transport, and application layers. Fall thoroughly introduces ARP, DHCP, NAT, firewalls, ICMPv4/ICMPv6, broadcasting, multicasting, UDP, DNS, and much more. He offers extensive coverage of reliable transport and TCP, including connection management, timeout, retransmission, interactive data flow, and congestion control. Finally, he introduces the basics of security and cryptography, and illuminates the crucial modern protocols for protecting security and privacy, including EAP, IPsec, TLS, DNSSEC, and DKIM. Whatever your TCP/IP experience, this book will help you gain a deeper, more intuitive understanding of the entire protocol suite so you can build better applications and run more reliable, efficient networks. Review “What makes this book unique, in my estimation, is the level of detail and attention to history. It provides background and a sense for the ways in which solutions to networking problems have evolved. It is relentless in its effort to achieve precision and to expose remaining problem areas. For an engineer determined to refine and secure Internet operation or to explore alternative solutions to persistent problems, the insights provided by this book will be invaluable. The authors deserve credit for a thorough rendering of the technology of today’s Internet.” -Vint Cerf “This is sure to be the bible for TCP/IP developers and users. Within minutes of picking up the text, I encountered several scenarios that had tripped up both my colleagues and myself in the past. Stevens reveals many of the mysteries once held tightly by the ever-elusive networking gurus. Having been involved in the implementation of TCP/IP for some years now, I consider this by far the finest text to date.” -Robert A. Ciampa, network engineer, Synernetics, division of 3COM “While all of Stevens’ books are readable and technically excellent, this new opus is awesome. Although many books describe the TCP/IP protocols, Stevens provides a level of depth and real-world detail lacking from the competition. He puts the reader inside TCP/IP using a visual approach and shows the protocols in action.” -Steven Baker, networking columnist, Unix Review “TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1, is an excellent reference for developers, network administrators, or anyone who needs to understand TCP/IP technology. TCP/IP Illustrated is comprehensive in its coverage of TCP/IP topics, providing enough details to satisfy the experts while giving enough background and commentary for the novice.” -Bob Williams, vice president, Marketing, NetManage, Inc. “. . . [T]he difference is that Stevens wants to show as well as tell about the protocols. His principal teaching tools are straightforward explanations, exercises at the ends of chapters, byte-by-byte diagrams of headers and the like, and listings of actual traffic as examples.” -Walter Zintz, UnixWorld “Much better than theory only. . . . W. Richard Stevens takes a multihost-based configuration and uses it as a travelogue of TCP/IP examples with illustrations. TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1, is based on practical examples that reinforce the theory-distinguishing this book from others on the subject, and making it both readable and informative.” -Peter M. Haverlock, consultant, IBM TCP/IP Development “The diagrams he uses are excellent and his writing style is clear and readable. In sum, Stevens has made a complex topic easy to understand. This book merits everyone’s attention. Please read it and keep it on your bookshelf.” -Elizabeth Zinkann, sys admin “W. Richard Stevens has produced a fine text and reference work. It is well organized and very clearly written with, as the title suggests, many excellent illustrations exposing the intimate details of the logic and operation of IP, TCP, and the supporting cast of protocols and applications.” -Scott Bradner, consultant, Harvard University OIT/NSD Download E-Book Uploaded Link [Hidden Content]

Practical Load Balancing presents an entire analytical framework to increase performance not just of one machine, but of your entire infrastructure. Practical Load Balancing starts by introducing key concepts and the tools you’ll need to tackle your load-balancing issues. You’ll travel through the IP layers and learn how they can create increased network traffic for you. You’ll see how to account for persistence and state, and how you can judge the performance of scheduling algorithms. You’ll then learn how to avoid performance degradation and any risk of the sudden disappearance of a service on a server. If you’re concerned with running your load balancer for an entire network, you’ll find out how to set up your network topography, and condense each topographical variety into recipes that will serve you in different situations. You’ll also learn about individual servers, and load balancers that can perform cookie insertion or improve your SSL throughput. You’ll also explore load balancing in the modern context of the cloud. While load balancers need to be configured for high availability once the conditions on the network have been created, modern load balancing has found its way into the cloud, where good balancing is vital for the very functioning of the cloud, and where IPv6 is becoming ever more important. You can read Practical Load Balancing from end to end or out of sequence, and indeed, if there are individual topics that interest you, you can pick up this book and work through it once you have read the first three chapters. What you’ll learn Judge network load balancing algorithms and when to use them Plan your network for optimal load balancing performance Configure single servers to take advantage of modern load balancing software Learning to use load balancing software like HAproxy, STunnel etc. Become familiar with implications of IPv6 and the cloud Improve SSL throughput and seamless application cookie insertion Who this book is for Network engineers, developers and IT managers.

Book Details Paperback: 464 pages Publisher: Apress (January 2012) Language: English ISBN-10:1430241586 ISBN-13: 978-1430241584 File Size: 17.0 MB This book introduces the tools you’ll need to program with the packetC language. packetC speeds the development of applications that live within computer networks, the kind of programs that provide network functionality for connecting “clients” and “servers” and “clouds.” The simplest examples provide packet switching and routing while more complex examples implement cyber security, broadband policies or cloud-based network infrastructure. Network applications, such as those processing digital voice and video, must be highly scalable, secure and maintainable. Such application requirements translate to requirements for a network programming language that leverages massively-parallel systems and ensures a high level of security, while representing networking protocols and transactions in the simplest way possible. packetC meets these requirements with an intuitive approach to coarse-grained parallelism, with strong-typing and controlled memory access for security and with new data types and operators that express the classic operations of the network-oriented world in familiar programming terms. No other language has addressed the full breadth of requirements for tractable parallelism, secure processing and usable constructs.The packetC language is growing in adoption and has been used to develop solutions operating in some of the world’s largest networks. This important new language, packetC, has now been successfully documented in this book, in which the language’s authors provide the materials and tools you’ll need in a readable and accessible form. What you’ll learn This book is the primary document specifying the language from a developer’s point of view and act as the formal language user’s guide. It covers: How to program applications in packetC. The parallel programming model of packetC Deviations from C99 and the unique aspects of packetC How to leverage existing C code and the applicability of the C standard libraries Who this book is for packetC Programming is written for a wide variety of potential programmers. Most importantly, it’s for people who need to use packetC to program for the Internet backbone. Still, knowledge of the packetC language will help a much wider array of programmers who need to write effective code that will be optimized for the cloud and work effectively and efficiently through complex network structures. Finally, readers will learn about how and why packetC is needed, and to better understand the technologies, standards and issues surrounding the ‘net. If you really want to understand this level of programming, this book is a must-have!

As we move away from traditional disk-based analysis into the interconnectivity of the cloud, Sherri and Jonathan have created a framework and roadmap that will act as a seminal work in this developing field.” Dr. Craig S. Wright (GSE), Asia Pacific Director at Global Institute for Cyber Security + Research. “It’s like a symphony meeting an encyclopedia meeting a spy novel.” Michael Ford, Corero Network Security On the Internet, every action leaves a mark in routers, firewalls, web proxies, and within network traffic itself. When a hacker breaks into a bank, or an insider smuggles secrets to a competitor, evidence of the crime is always left behind. Learn to recognize hackers’ tracks and uncover network-based evidence in Network Forensics: Tracking Hackers through Cyberspace.Carve suspicious email attachments from packet captures. Use flow records to track an intruder as he pivots through the network. Analyze a real-world wireless encryption-cracking attack (and then crack the key yourself). Reconstruct a suspect’s web surfing history and cached web pages, too from a web proxy. Uncover DNS-tunneled traffic. Dissect the Operation Aurora exploit, caught on the wire. Throughout the text, step-by-step case studies guide you through the analysis of network-based evidence. You can download the evidence files from the authors’ web site (lmgsecurity.com), and follow along to gain hands-on experience. Hackers leave footprints all across the Internet. Can you find their tracks and solve the case? Pick up Network Forensicsand find out. Table of Contents Part I: Foundation Chapter 1. Practical Investigative Strategies Chapter 2.
