A unique overview of network security issues, solutions, and methodologies. Covers a wide range of topics dealing with network security, including network traffic, secure routing, designing firewalls, mobile agent security, Bluetooth security, wireless sensor networks, securing digital content, and e-mail and VPN security.
This book provides a blueprint for creating and executing sound security policy. The author examines the costs and complications involved, covering security measures such as encryption, authentication, firewalls, intrusion detection, remote access, host security, server security, and the integration and education of people involved.
A comprehensive resource written for anyone who plans or implements network security measures, including managers and practitioners. It offers a dual perspective on security: how your network looks to hackers who want to get inside, and how you need to approach it on the inside to keep them at bay. You get higher-level administrative guidance for developing an effective security policy and technical advice including help with intrusion detection systems, firewalls, encryption, anti-virus software, and digital certificates. Includes a chapter (CH. 6 on "spoofing" and phishing).
