Genre: Computers

Sie können noch so viel in Hardware, Software und Abwehrmechanismen investieren, absolute Sicherheit für Ihre IT-Infrastruktur wird es nicht geben. Wenn Hacker sich wirklich anstrengen, werden sie auch in Ihr System gelangen. Sollte das geschehen, müssen Sie sowohl technisch als auch organisatorisch so aufgestellt sein, dass Sie die Gegenwart eines Hackers erkennen und darauf reagieren können. Sie müssen in der Lage sein, einen Zwischenfall zu deklarieren und die Angreifer aus Ihrem Netzwerk zu vertreiben, bevor sie erheblichen Schaden anrichten. Das ist Network Security Monitoring (NSM). Lernen Sie von dem leitenden Sicherheitsanalytiker Sanders die Feinheiten des Network Security Monitoring kennen. Konzepte verstehen und Network Security Monitoring mit Open-Source-Tools durchführen: Lernen Sie die drei NSM-Phasen kennen, um diese in der Praxis anzuwenden. Die praktische Umsetzung der NSM erfolgt mit vielen Open-Source-Werkzeugen wie z. B. Bro, Daemonlogger, Dumpcap, Justniffer, Honeyd, Httpry, Netsniff-NG, Sguil, SiLK, Snorby Snort, Squert, Suricata, TShark und Wireshark. Anhand von ausführlichen Beispielen lernen Sie, die Tools effizient in Ihrem Netzwerk einzusetzen.

Inside Anonymous

Author: Parmy Olson
Publisher: Redline Wirtschaft
ISBN: 9783864142802
Release Date: 2012-07-06
Genre: Political Science

Erstmals packen die Hacker aus. Ende des Jahres 2010 nahmen weltweit Tausende an den digitalen Angriffen der Hackergruppe Anonymous auf die Webseiten von VISA, MasterCard und PayPal teil, um gegen die Sperrung der Konten von Wiki-Leaks zu protestieren. Splittergruppen von Anonymous infiltrierten die Netzwerke der totalitären Regime von Libyen und Tunesien. Eine Gruppe namens LulzSec schaffte es sogar, das FBI, die CIA und Sony zu attackieren, bevor sie sich wieder auflöste. Das Anonymous-Kollektiv wurde bekannt durch die charakteristische Guy-Fawkes-Maske, mit der sich die Aktivisten tarnen. Es steht für Spaß-Guerilla und politische Netzaktivisten ohne erkennbare Struktur, die mit Hacking-Attacken gegen die Scientology-Sekte und Internetzensur protestierten. Internetsicherheitsdienste und bald auch die gesamte Welt merkten schnell, dass Anonymous eine Bewegung war, die man sehr ernst nehmen sollte. Doch wer verbirgt sich eigentlich hinter den Masken? Inside Anonymous erzählt erstmalig die Geschichte dreier Mitglieder des harten Kerns: ihren Werdegang und ihre ganz persönliche Motivation, die sie zu überzeugten Hackern machte. Basierend auf vielen exklusiven Interviews bietet das Buch einen einzigartigen und spannenden Einblick in die Köpfe, die hinter der virtuellen Community stehen.
