The #1 menace for computer systems worldwide, network hacking can result in mysterious server crashes, data loss, and other problems that are not only costly to fix but difficult to recognize. Author John Chirillo knows how these can be prevented, and in this book he brings to the table the perspective of someone who has been invited to break into the networks of many Fortune 1000 companies in order to evaluate their security policies and conduct security audits. He gets inside every detail of the hacker's world, including how hackers exploit security holes in private and public networks and how network hacking tools work. As a huge value-add, the author is including the first release of a powerful software hack attack tool that can be configured to meet individual customer needs.

From the Author:

The primary objective of this book is to lay a solid foundation from which to explore the world of security. This book tells the truth to bring awareness about the Underground, the hacker’s community, and to provide the tools for doing so.

The difference between this book and other manuscripts is that it is written from a hacker’s perspective. The internetworking primers in Parts 1 and 2, coupled with Chapter 6, “The Hacker’s Technology Handbook, will educate you about the technologies required to delve into security and hacking. These chapters can be skimmed if your background is technically sound, and later used as references. Part 3 reviews the tools and vulnerability exploits that rule “hackerdom.” Part 4 continues by describing covert techniques used by hackers, crackers, phreaks, and cyberpunks to penetrate security weaknesses. Part 5 reveals hacking secrets of gateways, routers, Internet server daemons, operating systems, proxies, and firewalls. Part 6 concludes with the software and construction necessary for compiling a TigerBox, used by security professionals and hackers for sniffing, spoofing, cracking, scanning, spying, and penetrating vulnerabilities. Throughout this book you will also encounter In! tuitive Intermissions, real-life interludes about hacking and the Underground. Through them you’ll explore a hacker’s chronicles, including a complete technology guide.

Who Should Read This Book

Evaluators of this book have suggested that this book it may become a required reference for managers, network administrators, network engineers, internetworking engineers, even interested laypeople—the hacking enthusiast and admirer of such films as Sneakers, The Matrix, and Hackers.
