The world of IT is always evolving, but in every area there are stable, core concepts that anyone just setting out needed to know last year, needs to know this year, and will still need to know next year. The purpose of the Foundations series is to identify these concepts and present them in a way that gives you the strongest possible starting point, no matter what your endeavor.
Network Security Foundations provides essential knowledge about the principles and techniques used to protect computers and networks from hackers, viruses, and other threats.
Network security spans a large number of disciplines, ranging from management
and policy topics to operating system kernel fundamentals.
Historically, the coverage of these and the other network security areas was presented
in multiple, specialized publications or given a high-level treatment that was
not suited to the practitioner. Network Security Bible approaches network security
from the view of the individual who wants to learn and apply the associated network
security best practices without having to sort through a myriad of extraneous
material from multiple sources.
(BQ) Adapted from Cryptography and Network Security, Fifth Edition, this text covers the same topics but with a much more concise treatment of cryptography. Network Security, 4/e also covers SNMP security, which is not covered in the fifth edition.
Upon completion of this lesson, the successful participant will be able to: Describe the rationale for network security; describe the three principles of network security; identify risks, threats, vulnerabilities and countermeasures; discuss the three states of information and identify threats and appropriate countermeasures for each state;...
Lecture Security + Guide to Network Security Fundamentals - Chapter 3 include objectives: Identify who is responsible for information security, describe security principles, use effective authentication methods, control access to computer systems, uudit information security schemes.
Often, several of these testing techniques are used together to gain more comprehensive assessment of the
overall network security posture. For example, penetration testing usually includes network scanning and
vulnerability scanning to identify vulnerable hosts and services that may be targeted for later penetration.
Some vulnerability scanners incorporate password cracking. None of these tests by themselves will
provide a complete picture of the network or its security posture. Table 3.1 at the end of this section
summarizes the strengths and weaknesses of each test.
For an equivalent level of security, elliptic curve cryptography uses shorter key sizes and is
considered to be an excellent candidate for constrained environments like wireless/mobile
communications. In FIPS 186-2, NIST recommends several ﬁnite ﬁelds to be used in the
elliptic curve digital signature algorithm (ECDSA). Of the ten recommended ﬁnite ﬁelds,
ﬁve are binary extension ﬁelds with degrees ranging from 163 to 571. The fundamental
building block of the ECDSA, like any ECC based protocol, is elliptic curve scalar mul-
Internetworking security has become a very big issue in recent months.
Companies who went through corporate life thinking, “it will never happen
to me” suddenly found themselves the victim of some sort of attack on
their network. High profile companies are most certainly a bigger target for
several reasons, including the notoriety the hacker receives for damaging
their network or Web site, and the amount of financial damage that can be
done by bringing down a successful e-commerce site. Recent attacks easily
racked up 100 million dollars in damage....
The new overwatch security pillar acts as an infection detection, containment, and
remediation engine that is automatically triggered when a threat has bypassed
detection by the existing "in-line" infrastructure and has infiltrated the enterprise
network. The overwatch security layer uses data from a real-time reputation and
behavioral correlation database to detect active data-stealing malware and other
The large size, heterogeneity, and
distributed nature of networks give
administrators a large number of degrees of
freedom to consider when configuration changes
need to be made. The proper functioning of the
network as a whole is a result of the coordinated
configuration of multiple network elements
whose interaction gives rise to the desired
behaviors. The number of options to consider
and the complexity of the interactions and
interdependencies between various protocols and
applications make it a very hard task to reason
about configuration changes.
In addition to the steps that an organization must take internally, nations and states face the need for providing privacy protection
mechanisms to assure compliance with the safe harbor principles. There must also be recourse for individuals affected by noncompliance
with the principles, and there must be consequences for an organization that violates safe harbor principles.
This chapter explains the need for IPv6 and presents its fundamental features, as well as enhancements when compared to IPv4. It covers IPv6 addressing scheme, components, and design principles and how routing functions. The chapter then presents potential threats and develops a strategy for IPv6 security.
This chapter suggests design principles to plan a threat control and containment strategy using firewalls and intrusion prevention systems in Cisco IOS environments. This chapter provides a general evaluation of the current state of enterprise security in the presence of evolving threats. It presents the design considerations for a threat protection strategy as part of a risk management strategy with Cisco threat control and containment solutions.
Chapter 11 - TCP/IP configuration. In this chapter, students will be able to understand: Routers receive packets and use the most efficient path to forward them to their destinations, complex internetworks can have redundant routers that provide multiple paths to the same destination, routers store information about the network in a routing table,...
