Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Network security is not simply about building impenetrable walls — determined attackers will eventually overcome traditional defenses. The most effective computer security strategies integrate network security monitoring (NSM): the collection and analysis of data to help you detect and respond to intrusions.

In The Practice of Network Security Monitoring, Mandiant CSO Richard Bejtlich shows you how to use NSM to add a robust layer of protection around your networks — no prior experience required. To help you avoid costly and inflexible solutions, he teaches you how to deploy, build, and run an NSM operation using open source software and vendor-neutral tools.

You'll learn how to:

  • Determine where to deploy NSM platforms, and size them for the monitored networks
  • Deploy stand-alone or distributed NSM installations
  • Use command line and graphical packet analysis tools, and NSM consoles
  • Interpret network evidence from server-side and client-side intrusions
  • Integrate threat intelligence into NSM software to identify sophisticated adversaries

There's no foolproof way to keep attackers out of your network. But when they get in, you'll be prepared. The Practice of Network Security Monitoring will show you how to build a security net to detect, contain, and control them. Attacks are inevitable, but losing sensitive data shouldn't be.

Synopsis:

Network Security Monitoring (NSM) is the collection, analysis, and escalation of indications and warnings to detect and respond to intrusions. The Practice of Network Security Monitoring teaches IT and security staff how to leverage powerful NSM tools and concepts to identify threats quickly and effectively. Author Richard Bejtlich is a recognized expert in NSM and shares his 15 years of incident handling experience with the reader. In addition to teaching you how to use key monitoring tools, Bejtlich demonstrates a holistic way of thinking about detecting, responding to, and containing intruders. The Practice of Network Security Monitoring assumes no prior experience with network security monitoring, and covers designing, deploying, building, and running an NSM operation. The book focuses on open source software and vendor-neutral tools, avoiding costly and inflexible solutions.
