Cyber Operations: Building, Defending, and Attacking Modern Computer Networks

Buy

Learn to set up, defend, and attack computer networks. This book focuses on networks and real attacks, offers extensive coverage of offensive and defensive techniques, and is supported by a rich collection of exercises and resources.

You'll learn how to configure your network from the ground up, starting by setting up your virtual test environment with basics like DNS and active directory, through common network services, and ending with complex web applications involving web servers and backend databases.

Key defensive techniques are integrated throughout the exposition. You will develop situational awareness of your network and will build a complete defensive infrastructure—including log servers, network firewalls, web application firewalls, and intrusion detection systems.

Of course, you cannot truly understand how to defend a network if you do not know how to attack it, so you will attack your test systems in a variety of ways beginning with elementary attacks against browsers through privilege escalation to a domain administrator, or attacks against simple network servers through the compromise of a defended e-commerce site.

The author, who has coached his university’s cyber defense team three times to the finals of the National Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition, provides a practical, hands-on approach to cyber security.

What you’ll learn

  • How to securely set up a complete network, from its infrastructure through web applications
  • How to integrate defensive technologies such as firewalls and intrusion detection systems into your network
  • How to attack your network with tools like Kali Linux, Metasploit, and Burp Suite
  • How to gain situational awareness on your network to detect and prevent such attacks

Who this book is for

This book is for beginning and intermediate professionals in cyber security who want to learn more about building, defending, and attacking computer networks. It is also suitable for use as a textbook and supplementary text for hands-on courses in cyber operations at the undergraduate and graduate level.

Foundation Flex for Designers
Foundation Flex for Designers
Welcome to Foundation Flex for Designers. When Adobe released Flex 1.0 in March 2004, a lot of designers and developers who were used to working in Flash viewed it with suspicion. Where was the timeline, what was MXML, and how was it useful for designers? With Flex 2, the answers to those questions became a little clearer, and more and more web...
Maximum Apache Security (Maximum Security)
Maximum Apache Security (Maximum Security)
The Maximum Security series, which debuted in 1997, has thus far enjoyed relative success. I use the term “relative success,” because security title sales have historically trickled, rather than gushed. For altering this and fostering a new market, Sams editors deserve kudos. Their insights have proven providential: Today, Maximum...
Models of Discovery and Creativity (Origins: Studies in the Sources of Scientific Creativity)
Models of Discovery and Creativity (Origins: Studies in the Sources of Scientific Creativity)

Since the origin of the modern sciences, our views on discovery and creativity had a remarkable history. Originally, discovery was seen as an integral part of methodology and the logic of discovery as algorithmic or nearly algorithmic. During the nineteenth century, conceptions in line with romanticism led to the famous opposition between the...
