Stealing the Network: How to Own the Box

Stealing the Network: How to Own the Box Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stealing the Network is not intended as an "install, configure, update, troubleshoot, and defend book." It is also not another of the countless hacker books out there, but an edgy, provocative, attack-oriented series of chapters written in a firsthand, conversational style. World-renowned network security personalities present a series of 25-to-30 page chapters written from the point of view of an attacker who is gaining access to a particular system. This book portrays the "street fighting" tactics used to attack and defend networks and systems.

Book News Annotation:

"If you want to hack into someone else's network, the week between Christmas and New Year's Day is the best time. I love that time of year" (from Chapter 1, "Hide and Sneak"). Written by a team of network security professionals, this volume contains a series of fictional short stories demonstrating the techniques commonly used by criminal hackers. The appendix provides an overview of the "Laws of Security" and discusses ways to mitigate many of the attacks detailed in the book.
