ALOT of the material in these slides and in this lecture is NOT in the book. This book does a good job of presenting most of the material needed for the security+ exam. However the info in chapter 8 is a little thin… so play close note to the slides. Perhaps I provide a little too much depth for the security+ exam… but it’s well worth doing the extra learning… especially if you want to take the CISSP or really understand networks and network security concepts to be USEFUL in real life!
This book provides a thorough examination and analysis of cutting-edge research and security solutions in wireless and mobile networks. It begins with coverage of the basic security concepts and fundamentals which underpin and provide the knowledge necessary for understanding and evaluating security issues, challenges, and solutions. This material will be of invaluable use to all those working in the network security field, and especially to the many people entering the field.

Thor’s Microsoft® Security Bible provides a “one-stop-shop” for Microsoft-related security techniques and procedures as applied to the typical deployment of a Microsoft-based infrastructure. The book contains detailed security concepts and methodologies described at every level: Server, Client, Organizational Structure, Platform-specific security options, application specific security (IIS, SQL, Active Directory, etc.) and also includes new, never-before-published security tools complete with source code.
This version of the Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation (CC v3.1) is the first major revision since being published as CC v2.3 in 2005.
CC v3.1 aims to: eliminate redundant evaluation activities; reduce/eliminate activities that contribute little to the final assurance of a product; clarify CC terminology to reduce misunderstanding; restructure and refocus the evaluation activities to those areas where security assurance is gained; and add new CC requirements if needed....

Security concepts are organized based on business needs, as opposed to tech-nological similarity. We’ve tried to focus on how these concepts relate in terms of practical business functionality. For example, network monitoring is discussed in Part 1, "Managing Security " rather than in a section on intrusion detection. For people with a technical background, this method of organization may seem strange. But one of our goals is to change the way people think about security. As we’ll say many times throughout the book, security is not a technological issue; it’s a business
An organization cannot expect to be secure, unless security is directed from the top-down.
Management must realize the need for security
Management must create a security policy
Management must empower the security team to design and enforce the security program
Operating systems and software are written to be functional and easy to use and install. Otherwise vendors will have a hard time selling them ;-)
Unfortunately they generally come configured insecure (or less secure that possible) out of the box.
There are two important terms we need to understand in regards to securing systems out of the box.
Q: What type of authentication system does the OS (Security Kernel) determined who is allowed access to a resource
Q: What access control model helps fight “authorization creep”
Q: Biometrics are an example of “What you ____”
Q: What is a better security model, network based or host based? Justify your answer.
Content in lecture Information systems security include: General security concepts, identifying potential risks, infrastructure and connectivity, monitoring activity and intrusion detection, implementing and maintaining a secure network, securing the network and environment, cryptography basics - methods and standards, security policies and procedures, security administration.
The content in chapter 1: Understanding information security, understanding the goals of information security, comprehending the security process, authentication issues to consider, distinguishing between security topologies.
This chapter discusses how to develop a comprehensive network security policy to counter threats against information security. It also teaches you about possible threats and how to describe and implement the process of developing a security policy. It covers the identification of common vulnerabilities and threats, mitigation strategies, and the implementation of a security architecture using a lifecycle approach.
The course introduces security concepts unique to ISA Server 2004 and provides best practices for their implementation. This course includes information on both the Standard Edition and Enterprise Edition of ISA Server 2004.
According to Eric Vanderburg of certmag.com, the CCNA is “Cisco's introductory certification and the one in greatest demand. Cisco products
often are the first thought when choosing network infrastructure equipment, and they are immensely prevalent, creating a vast need for
professionals who are capable of managing them.”
On June 25, 2007, Cisco announced major updates to their CCNA curricula, including the new version of the CCNA Composite Exam (640-
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.
This handbook provides assistance in securing computer-based resources (including hardware,
software, and information) by explaining important concepts, cost considerations, and
interrelationships of security controls. It illustrates the benefits of security controls, the major
techniques or approaches for each control, and important related considerations.
Security is a significant concern for any organization. If the organization has to have
a presence on or a connection to the Internet, it will also have special needs to protect
itself from unwanted intrusion and attacks from malicious and hostile sources.
The growth of the Internet has been accompanied by the growth in the numbers
and sophistication of hackers and the tools available to them. As many organizations
and home users who have a permanent connection to the Internet can attest, there is
no shortage of people who want to scan ports or break into systems.
