This second edition of Network Security Hacks offers 125 concise and practical hacks, including more information for Windows administrators, hacks for wireless networking (such as setting up a captive portal and securing against rogue hotspots), and techniques to ensure privacy and anonymity, including ways to evade network traffic analysis, encrypt email and files, and protect against phishing attacks. System administrators looking for reliable answers will also find concise examples of applied encryption, intrusion detection, logging, trending and incident response.
In fact, this "roll up your sleeves and get busy" security book features updated tips, tricks & techniques across the board to ensure that it provides the most current information for all of the major server software packages. These hacks are quick, clever, and devilishly effective.
"Nmap 6: Network exploration and security auditing cookbook" will help you master Nmap and its scripting engine. You will learn how to use this tool to do a wide variety of practical tasks for pentesting and network monitoring. Finally, after harvesting the power of NSE, you will also learn how to write your own NSE scripts.
"Nmap 6: Network exploration and security auditing cookbook" is a book full of practical knowledge for every security consultant, administrator or enthusiast looking to master Nmap. The book overviews the most important port scanning and host discovery techniques supported by Nmap. You will learn how to detect mis-configurations in web, mail and database servers and also how to implement your own monitoring system.
The book also covers tasks for reporting, scanning numerous hosts, vulnerability detection and exploitation, and its strongest aspect; information gathering.
In The Tangled Web, Michal Zalewski, one of the world's top browser security experts, offers a compelling narrative that explains exactly how browsers work and why they're fundamentally insecure. Rather than dispense simplistic advice on vulnerabilities, Zalewski examines the entire browser security model, revealing weak points and providing crucial information for shoring up web application security. You'll learn how to:
* Perform common but surprisingly complex tasks such as URL parsing and HTML sanitization
* Use modern security features like Strict Transport Security, Content Security Policy, and Cross-Origin Resource Sharing
* Leverage many variants of the same-origin policy to safely compartmentalize complex web applications and protect user credentials in case of XSS bugs
* Build mashups and embed gadgets without getting stung by the tricky frame navigation policy
* Embed or host user-supplied content without running into the trap of content sniffing
For quick reference, "Security Engineering Cheat Sheets" at the end of each chapter offer ready solutions to problems you're most likely to encounter. With coverage extending as far as planned HTML5 features, The Tangled Web will help you create secure web applications that stand the test of time.

Secure Key Establishment identifies several variants of the key sharing requirement. Several variants of the widely accepted Bellare and Rogaway (1993) model are covered. A comparative study of the relative strengths of security notions between these variants of the Bellare–Rogaway model and the Canetti–Krawczyk model is included. An integrative framework is proposed that allows protocols to be analyzed in a modified version of the Bellare–Rogaway model using the automated model checker tool.
Secure Key Establishment is designed for advanced level students in computer science and mathematics, as a secondary text or reference book. This book is also suitable for practitioners and researchers working for defense agencies or security companies.
This book introduces you to wireless penetration testing and describes how to conduct its various phases. After showing you how to install Kali Linux on your laptop, you will verify the requirements of the wireless adapter and configure it. Next, the book covers the wireless LAN reconnaissance phase, explains the WEP and WPA/WPA2 security protocols and demonstrates practical attacks against them using the tools provided in Kali Linux, Aircrack-ng in particular. You will then discover the advanced and latest attacks targeting access points and wireless clients and learn how to create a professionally written and effective report.
It's also likely that at some point, you'll have to break up one large network into a number of smaller ones because user response has decresed to a trickle as the network grew and grew and LAN traffic congestion reached overwhelming proportions. Breaking up a larger network into a number of smaller ones is called network segmentation, and it's accomplished using routers, switches, and bridges.
The reason for this book is to help you with your Cisco certification by covering the essentials you need in order to pass the CCNA exams.
