Keeping up with the latest developments in cyber security requires
ongoing commitment, but without a firm foundation in the principles
of computer security and digital forensics, those tasked with
safeguarding private information can get lost in a turbulent and
shifting sea. Providing such a foundation, Introduction to Security
and Network Forensics covers the basic principles of intrusion
detection systems, encryption, and authentication, as well as the
key academic principles related to digital forensics.Starting with
an overview of general security concepts, it addresses hashing,
digital certificates, enhanced software security, and network
security. The text introduces the concepts of risk, threat
analysis, and network forensics, and includes online access to an
abundance of ancillary materials, including labs, Cisco challenges,
test questions, and web-based videos. The author provides readers
with access to a complete set of simulators for routers, switches,
wireless access points (Cisco Aironet 1200), PIX/ASA firewalls
(Version 6.x, 7.x and 8.x), Wireless LAN Controllers (WLC),
Wireless ADUs, ASDMs, SDMs, Juniper, and much more, including: More
than 3,700 unique Cisco challenges and 48,000 Cisco Configuration
Challenge Elements60,000 test questions, including for Certified
Ethical Hacking and CISSP (R)350 router labs, 180 switch labs, 160
PIX/ASA labs, and 80 Wireless labs Rounding out coverage with a
look into more advanced topics, including data hiding, obfuscation,
web infrastructures, and cloud and grid computing, this book
provides the fundamental understanding in computer security and
digital forensics required to develop and implement effective
safeguards against ever-evolving cyber security threats. Along with
this, the text includes a range of online lectures and related
material, available at: http://asecuritybook.com.
