  • About the Edition

    How secure is your network? The best way to find out is to attack it. Network Security Assessment provides you with the tricks and tools professional security consultants use to identify and assess risks in Internet-based networks-the same penetration testing model they use to secure government, military, and commercial networks. With this book, you can adopt, refine, and reuse this testing model to design and deploy networks that are hardened and immune from attack. Network Security Assessment demonstrates how a determined attacker scours Internet-based networks in search of vulnerable components, from the network to the application level. This new edition is up-to-date on the latest hacking techniques, but rather than focus on individual issues, it looks at the bigger picture by grouping and analyzing threats at a high-level. By grouping threats in this way, you learn to create defensive strategies against entire attack categories, providing protection now and into the future. Network Security Assessment helps you assess: Web services, including Microsoft IIS, Apache, Tomcat, and subsystems such as OpenSSL, Microsoft FrontPage, and Outlook Web Access (OWA) Web application technologies, including ASP, JSP, PHP, middleware, and backend databases such as MySQL, Oracle, and Microsoft SQL Server Microsoft Windows networking components, including RPC, NetBIOS, and CIFS services SMTP, POP3, and IMAP email services IP services that provide secure inbound network access, including IPsec, Microsoft PPTP, and SSL VPNs Unix RPC services on Linux, Solaris, IRIX, and other platforms Various types of application-level vulnerabilities that hacker tools and scripts exploit Assessment is the first stepany organization should take to start managing information risks correctly. With techniques to identify and assess risks in line with CESG CHECK and NSA IAM government standards, Network Security Assessment gives you a precise method to do just that.

    Network Security Assessment provides you with the tools and techniques that professional security analysts use to identify and assess risks in government, military, and commercial networks. Armed with this book, you can work to create environments that are hardened and immune from unauthorized use and attack. Network Security Assessment By Chris McNab Publisher: O'Reilly Pub Date: March ISBN: X Pages: Slots: Network Security Assessment offers an efficient testing model you can adopt, refine, and reuse to create proactive.

    The goal of the assessment is to gain an understanding of your company's susceptibility to risk, identify opportunities for improvement, and provide practical recommendations aligned with best practices as it pertains to the current IT infrastructure and security controls. The best practice assessment methodology used by determined attackers and network security consultants involves four distinct high-level components: Network enumeration to identify IP networks and hosts of interest. Bulk network scanning and probing to identify potentially vulnerable hosts.

      Network Security Assessment provides you with the tools and techniques that professional security analysts use to identify and assess risks in government, military, and commercial networks. Armed with this book, you can work to create environments that are hardened and immune from unauthorized use and attack/5(23).   Network Vulnerability Assessment starts with network security assessment concepts, workflows, and architectures. Then, you will use open source tools to perform both active and passive network scanning. As you make your way through the chapters, you will use these scanning results to analyze and design a threat model for network security.
