The ultimate hands-on guide to IT security and proactive defense

The Network Security Test Lab is a hands-on, step-by-step guide to ultimate IT security implementation. Covering the full complement of malware, viruses, and other attack technologies, this essential guide walks you through the security assessment and penetration testing process, and provides the set-up guidance you need to build your own security-testing lab. You'll look inside the actual attacks to decode their methods, and learn how to run attacks in an isolated sandbox to better understand how attackers target systems, and how to build the defenses that stop them. You'll be introduced to tools like Wireshark, Networkminer, Nmap, Metasploit, and more as you discover techniques for defending against network attacks, social networking bugs, malware, and the most prevalent malicious traffic. You also get access to open source tools, demo software, and a bootable version of Linux to facilitate hands-on learning and help you implement your new skills.

Security technology continues to evolve, and yet not a week goes by without news of a new security breach or a new exploit being released. The Network Security Test Lab is the ultimate guide when you are on the front lines of defense, providing the most up-to-date methods of thwarting would-be attackers.

Get acquainted with your hardware, gear, and test platform Learn how attackers penetrate existing security systems Detect malicious activity and build effective defenses Investigate and analyze attacks to inform defense strategy

The Network Security Test Lab is your complete, essential guide.

The practical guide to simulating, detecting, and responding to network attacks Create step-by-step testing plans Learn to perform social engineering and host reconnaissance Evaluate session hijacking methods Exploit web server vulnerabilities Detect attempts to breach database security Use password crackers to obtain access information Circumvent Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) and firewall protections and disrupt the service of routers and switches Scan and penetrate wireless networks Understand the inner workings of Trojan Horses, viruses, and other backdoor applications Test UNIX, Microsoft, and Novell servers for vulnerabilities Learn the root cause of buffer overflows and how to prevent them Perform and prevent Denial of Service attacks

Penetration testing is a growing field but there has yet to be a definitive resource that instructs ethical hackers on how to perform a penetration test with the ethics and responsibilities of testing in mind. Penetration Testing and Network Defense offers detailed steps on how to emulate an outside attacker in order to assess the security of a network.

Unlike other books on hacking, this book is specifically geared towards penetration testing. It includes important information about liability issues and ethics as well as procedures and documentation. Using popular open-source and commercial applications, the book shows you how to perform a penetration test on an organization’s network, from creating a test plan to performing social engineering and host reconnaissance to performing simulated attacks on both wired and wireless networks.

Penetration Testing and Network Defense also goes a step further than other books on hacking, as it demonstrates how to detect an attack on a live network. By detailing the method of an attack and how to spot an attack on your network, this book better prepares you to guard against hackers. You will learn how to configure, record, and thwart these attacks and how to harden a system to protect it against future internal and external attacks.

Full of real-world examples and step-by-step procedures, this book is both an enjoyable read and full of practical advice that will help you assess network security and develop a plan for locking down sensitive data and company resources.

“This book goes to great lengths to explain the various testing approaches that are used today and gives excellent insight into how a responsible penetration testing specialist executes his trade.”

–Bruce Murphy, Vice President, World Wide Security Services, Cisco Systems®
