9781593270469: Silence on the Wire: A Field Guide to Passive Reconnaissance and Indirect Attacks

There are many ways that a potential attacker can intercept information, or learn more about the sender, as the information travels over a network. Silence on the Wire uncovers these silent attacks so that system administrators can defend against them, as well as better understand and monitor their systems.

Silence on the Wire dissects several unique and fascinating security and privacy problems associated with the technologies and protocols used in everyday computing, and shows how to use this knowledge to learn more about others or to better defend systems. By taking an indepth look at modern computing, from hardware on up, the book helps the system administrator to better understand security issues, and to approach networking from a new, more creative perspective. The sys admin can apply this knowledge to network monitoring, policy enforcement, evidence analysis, IDS, honeypots, firewalls, and forensics.

Review:

A series of explorations that take our ‘professional paranoid’ mentality and examine some issues we seldom consider. -- Internet Review Project, July 2005

A very good introduction to the intricacies of certain security problems and a very extensive guide to passive reconnaissance. -- Help Net Security, June 24, 2005

An innovative twist on otherwise boring aspects of network security... hours of enjoyable reading for any self-proclaimed security enthusiast. -- TechIMO, June 3, 2005 http://www.techimo.com/articles/i249.html

Do-it-yourself ethos pervades the book... this broad mindset can uncover major security flaws — but not where you’d think. -- Enterprise Systems, June 22, 2005 http://www.esj.com/Security/article.aspx?EditorialsID=1426

I was hooked... I give this book a 7 out of 10 for an interesting read. -- Edmonton Linux User Group, June 2005

If you are a 'hacker' type in the old sense of the word... you will probably find this book intriguing. -- ;login:, October 2005

Not only thinking outside the box, but twisting the box, shaking it, and finding a way to exploit it. -- WatchGuard Wire, June 13, 2005 http://www.watchguard.com/RSS/showarticle.aspx?pack=RSS.SotW

The discovery of a technical book in this style is cool. -- IEEE Cipher, May 14, 2005 http://www.ieee-security.org/Cipher/BookReviews/2005/zalewski_by_bruen.html

This follows the story of a piece of information from the first key-press to the other end of the wire. -- Book News UK, May 17, 2005 http://www.booknews.co.uk/

What makes it a joy to read are the author's appealing humility, sense of humor and vast knowledge. -- Open.ITWorld.com, June 1, 2005 http://open.itworld.com/5040/nls_unixsilencewire050602/page_1.html
