CyberSecurity Books Part 3
Hi Guys, this is the Part 3 of CyberSecurity Books, also you can find the first and second Part of CyberSecurity Books bellow, however it’s never past the point where it is possible to peruse them now. On the off chance that you believe that we have missed something.
About This Book
- Troubleshoot problems, identify security risks, and measure key application performance metrics with Wireshark
- Gain valuable insights into the network and application protocols, and the key fields in each protocol
- Configure Wireshark, and analyze networks and applications at the packet level with the help of practical examples and step-wise instructions
Who This Book Is For
This book is aimed at IT professionals who want to develop or enhance their packet analysis skills. Basic familiarity with common network and application services terms and technologies is assumed; however, expertise in advanced networking topics or protocols is not required. Readers in any IT field can develop the analysis skills specifically needed to complement and support their respective areas of responsibility and interest.
Wireshark is a popular and powerful tool used to analyze the amount of bits and bytes that are flowing through a network. Wireshark deals with the second to seventh layer of network protocols, and the analysis made is presented in a human readable form.
Mastering Wireshark will help you raise your knowledge to an expert level. At the start of the book, you will be taught how to install Wireshark, and will be introduced to its interface so you understand all its functionalities. Moving forward, you will discover different ways to create and use capture and display filters. Halfway through the book, you’ll be mastering the features of Wireshark, analyzing different layers of the network protocol, looking for any anomalies. As you reach to the end of the book, you will be taught how to use Wireshark for network security analysis and configure it for troubleshooting purposes.
What you will learn
- Install Wireshark and understand its GUI and all the functionalities of it
- Create and use different filters
- Analyze different layers of network protocols and know the amount of packets that flow through the network
- Decrypt encrypted wireless traffic
- Use Wireshark as a diagnostic tool and also for network security analysis to keep track of malware
- Troubleshoot all the network anomalies with help of Wireshark
- Resolve latencies and bottleneck issues in the network
This book begins by taking the reader to the 30,000′ view, so you can start to see the entire security landscape. I then attempt to explain a very simple threat modelling approach that I believe Bruce Schneier created, called the Sensible Security Model (SSM). We take the learnings from the first chapter and apply them to lower levels. I detail how to setup a security focussed distribution with all the tools and configuration options required for working through the book. We then walk through the Process and Practises that the attacker often execute, and we take the learnings from that and train the defenders on how they can bring the finding of defects from the most expensive place to the cheapest place, within your Sprint cycles. The rest of the book focusses on the specific areas on the cover of this book.
My intention with “Holistic Info-Sec for Web Developers” is in many ways to help you answer your own questions and show you that creating systems and arming people to withstand the types of attacks commonly encountered today is not our of reach of mere mortals. That by simply lifting the lower hanging fruit for an attacker often means they will move on to an easier target. Unless they are specifically targeting you. In which case you should find many of the risks and countermeasures I address, affective for increasing the difficulty for your attacker, and thus dramatically increasing your chances of defence and counter-attack.
The second part of a three part book series focused on lifting the security knowledge of Software Developers, Engineers, and their teams, so that they can continuously deliver secure technical solutions on time and within budget.
What kind of secrets are included in 501 Web Site Secrets? Well, there’s parts of
a site you didn’t know existed. Or ways to use the site that you weren’t aware
of. Or special commands that help you get even more out of the site than you
could before. Cool stuff like that—and more.
That’s the nature of a secret—something that most users don’t know about, but
would get a kick out of if they did. These are the kinds of things that will make
you say to yourself, “That’s cool—I didn’t know you could do that!” And then
you’ll want to go directly to the site to try the secret out for yourself. (Go ahead;
Of course, not all 501 secrets in this book will be new to you. If you’re Internetsavvy
at all, you’ll probably know some of what I reveal in these pages. That’s
okay; it only means that you’re on your toes. I’m sure, however, that you’ll find
more than a few secrets you didn’t know, and that they’ll make this book a
worthwhile read for you.
So you want to be a harmless hacker?
“You mean you can hack without breaking the law?”
That was the voice of a high school freshman. He had me on the phone because his father had just taken
away his computer. His offense? Cracking into my Internet account. The boy had hoped to impress me with
how “kewl” he was. But before I realized he had gotten in, a sysadmin at my ISP had spotted the kid’s
harmless explorations and had alerted the parents. Now the boy wanted my help in getting back on line.
Learn to hack…. with the complete beginners guide.
Cybercrimes are a threat and as dangerous as an armed intruder—yet millions of Americans are complacent or simply uninformed of how to protect themselves. The Secret to Cybersecurity closes that knowledge gap by using real-life examples to educate readers.
It’s 2 a.m.—do you know who your child is online with?
According to author Scott Augenbaum, between 80 to 90 percent of students say they do whatever they want on their smartphones—and their parents don’t have a clue. Is that you? What about your online banking passwords, are they safe? Has your email account or bank/debit card ever been compromised? In 2018, there were data breaches at several major companies—If those companies have your credit or debit information, that affects you.
There are bad people in the world, and they are on the internet. They want to hurt you. They are based all over the world, so they’re hard at “work” when even you’re sleeping. They use automated programs to probe for weaknesses in your internet security programs. And they never stop.
Digitization drives technology today, which is why it’s so important for organizations to design security mechanisms for their network infrastructures. Analyzing vulnerabilities is one of the best ways to secure your network infrastructure.
This Learning Path begins by introducing you to the various concepts of network security assessment, workflows, and architectures. You will learn to employ open source tools to perform both active and passive network scanning and use these results to analyze and design a threat model for network security. With a firm understanding of the basics, you will then explore how to use Nessus and Nmap to scan your network for vulnerabilities and open ports and gain back door entry into a network. As you progress through the chapters, you will gain insights into how to carry out various key scanning tasks, including firewall detection, OS detection, and access management to detect vulnerabilities in your network.
By the end of this Learning Path, you will be familiar with the tools you need for network scanning and techniques for vulnerability scanning and network protection.
This Learning Path includes content from the following Packt books:
- Network Scanning Cookbook by Sairam Jetty
- Network Vulnerability Assessment by Sagar Rahalkar
