The adaptive security appliance delivers unprecedented levels of defense against threats to the network
with deeper web inspection and flow-specific analysis, improved secure connectivity via end-point
security posture validation, and voice and video over VPN support. It also provides enhanced support
for intelligent information networks through improved network integration, resiliency, and scalability.
The adaptive security appliance software combines firewall, VPN concentrator, and intrusion prevention
software functionality into one software image.
Tom works as a network administrator for the P4S company. The primary adaptive security appliance in an active/standby failover configuration failed, so the secondary adaptive security appliance was automatically activated. Tom then fixed the problem. Now he would like to restore the primary to active status. Which one of the following commands can reactivate the primary adaptive security appliance and restore it to active status while issued on the primary adaptive security appliance?
The ASA is a standalone firewall device that is a primary component of the Cisco SecureX architecture. The following will be discussed in this chapter: Which kind of branch is appropriate for the IOS firewall solution? What is disadvantage of the IOS firewall solution? Inviting you to refer.
This chapter explains the two Cisco Firewall solutions: Cisco IOS Zone-Based Policy Firewalls and Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance. It describes in detail Cisco IOS Zone-Based Policy Firewall, and how the solution uses the Cisco Common Classification Policy Language (C3PL) for creating firewall policies. The chapter then presents the Cisco ASA firewall, identifying key supported features and the building blocks of its configuration using ASDM.
When you purchase most home appliances, they come with an owner’s manual.
The owner’s manual is the bible of information for that appliance. It tells you
what each button does and how to set up and configure your new appliance to
get it ready for operation.The owner’s manual also includes the actual steps to
operate the appliance, and it often contains information on how and where to
obtain service and parts, basic troubleshooting tips, and precautions you should
be aware of before using the appliance....

Home Security Store caters to the do-it-yourself home or business owner who knows true safety: understanding and installing your own alarm system. If there’s one household appliance that you should know how to operate, it’s your alarm system. That’s why we stock the best and most user-friendly brands in the industry. From Honeywell to DSC, we have the tools to help you build the peace of mind you and your family deserve.
Not shown in Fig. 1 are some elements of the network that complicate security efforts.
There may be a corporate firewall or network address translation (NAT) features that will
require communication between the building services staff and IT staff, but will also
provide greater protection against IT threats. There may be other external connections
from a trusted network that bypass the SR, i.e. a modem connection. Also not shown are
physical security implementation details.
Network Security Testing – Activities that provide information about the integrity of an organization's
networks and associated systems through testing and verification of network-related security controls on a
regular basis. “Security Testing” or “Testing” is used throughout this document to refer to Network
Security Testing. The testing activities can include any of the types of tests described in Chapter 3,
including network mapping, vulnerability scanning, password cracking, penentration testing, war dialing,
war driving, file integrity checking, and virus scanning.
What do we mean by an insecure medium? Well, in some dictionary or another, under the
definition of “insecure medium” should be a picture of the Internet. The world is evolving towards
interconnecting every computer, and people talk about connecting household appliances as well, all
into some wonderful global internetwork. How wonderful! You’d be able to send electronic mail to
anyone in the world. You’d also be able to control your nuclear power plant with simple commands
sent across the network while you were vacationing in Fiji. Or sunny Libya. Or historic Iraq.
Adhere to the published practices of the development project. This should ensure, at
minimum, a consistent and maintainable product on which to build application security.
Projects should apply a development methodology appropriate to the requirements. Neither
a classic waterfall nor agile development process is appropriate in all cases. A consistency
of approach ensures that design documents and code are easily accessible to all members of
The information in this guide applies to the following ASA 5500 series adaptive security appliance
models: ASA 5505, ASA 5510, ASA 5520, ASA 5540, and ASA 5550. In this guide, references to
“Cisco ASA 5500 series adaptive security appliance” and “adaptive security appliance” apply to all models
unless specifically noted otherwise.
Bài viết này chủ yếu dựa trên hai tài liệu là "Web Security Appliance With Apache and mod_security" của Ivan, tác giả mod_security và "Securing Apache 2: Step-by-Step" của Artur Maj. Bà con có thể xem đây là một bản dịch tiếng Việt của hai tài liệu trên, kèm theo những suy nghĩ riêng của bản thân tôi dựa vào kinh nghiệm thực tế khi triển khai reverse proxy -0-. Bài viết này có thể xem là một case study thuộc tập tài liệu "Bảo vệ máy chủ an toàn với phần mềm tự do"....

Beginning with a basic primer on reverse engineering-including computer internals, operating systems, and assembly language-and then discussing the various
applications of reverse engineering, this book provides readers with practical, in-depth techniques for software reverse engineering. The book is broken into two parts, the first deals with security-related reverse engineering and the second explores the more practical aspects of reverse engineering.
Platform Builder provides you with several different vertical device
configurations ranging from a Residential Gateway that features only the kernel
functionality to a Media Appliance configuration that includes many graphical
features and many applications.
Perimeter security solutions control access to critical network applications, data, and services so that only legitimate users
and information can pass through the network. This access control is handled by routers and switches with access control
lists (ACLs) and by dedicated ﬁrewall appliances. A ﬁrewall provides a barrier to trafﬁc crossing a network’s “perimeter”
and permits only authorized trafﬁc to pass, according to a predeﬁned security policy. Complementary tools, including virus
scanners and content ﬁlters, also help control network perimeters.
