This is a complete networking professional's guide to providing end-to-end Internet security where it matters most: at the packet level. World-recognized networking consultant Uyless Black covers every essential Internet security protocol, and virtually every IP application, including data, voice, multicast, and video. Black begins by reviewing the key security risks associated with the Internet and Internet applications, including risks to privacy, secrecy, and confidentiality; risks to the integrity of information and accurate authentication; and the need for access control and non-repudiation of transactions. Understand the role of firewalls and security policies and procedures; then review each key Internet security protocol. Black covers dial-in authentication including RADIUS and DIAMETER; VPN IPSec security; the Internet Key Distribution, Certification, and Management system (ISAKMP); Internet Key Exchange; and more. The book includes detailed coverage of security in mobile networks, and explains how Diffserv can be used to establish different levels of security for different types of traffic. For all experienced networking and communications professionals.

Secure transmission of data over public and semipublic Internet Protocol (IP) networks is essential to organizations that are geographically distributed. Such companies rely on the ability of road warriors to connect transparently to local area network (LAN) resources across the Internet via a virtual private network (VPN), and require fixed resources to be able to communicate securely and inexpensively. Respected networking author Uyless Black explains certain aspects of the state of the art in secure IP data communications in Internet Security Protocols: Protecting IP Traffic. For the most part, he endeavors to explain network-security concepts at a systems-engineering level, leaving the details of implementation of specific environments to more specialized books.
In explaining an aspect of IP security, Black typically opens with a statement of what the protocol or technology at hand is good for, examining how it fits with other elements of IP security and citing relevant standards documents. From there, he moves on to how the technology works, typically with the help of conceptual schematics and packet diagrams. Special features receive focused discussion, and usually you'll find a couple of annotated diagram sequences to help clarify what happens in specific applications of the technology. There also are fine explanations of such widely applicable techniques as public-key cryptography and certification authorities. Read this book for its conceptual clarity; back it up with another security text that addresses the administration-level specifics of your operating environment. --David Wall
Topics covered: Protocols and techniques for securing Internet Protocol (IP) data communications, including Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) and several of its more secure variants, as well as dial-in security provided by Password Authentication Protocol (PAP), Challenge Handshake Authentication Protocol (CHAP), Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS), and Diameter. The IPSec specification is dissected; and there's coverage of Public Key Infrastructures (PKI), although not of Kerberos. Key exchange with Internet Key Exchange (IKE) and Internet Security Association and Key Management Protocol (ISAKMP) is discussed, too.From the Inside Flap:
This book is one in a series of books called, "Advanced Communications Technologies." As the name of the book implies, the focus is on the Internet architecture and the principal protocols that make up this architecture. The book is an expansion of Advanced Features of the Internet, also part of this series.
The book has been written for this series to act as the introduction to the other more advanced Internet topics. As such, it is written for the person who is new to the Internet protocols, but it assumes the reader has had some experience in data communications.
I hope you find this book a valuable addition to your library.Acknowledgments
