Description

For courses in Network Security.

This book provides a balanced, insightful and independent treatment of intrusion detection by a uniquely qualified author possessing first-hand knowledge into all of the successful and failed approaches to the problem. More than just an overview of the technology, Intrusion Detection presents real analysis schemes and responses as well as a detailed discussion of the vulnerabilities that exist in many systems and approaches to testing systems for these problems.

Features

  • Practical considerations for selecting and implementing intrusion detection systems from an industry pioneer.
  • Methods for handling the results of analysis, and the options for responses to detected problems.
  • Data sources commonly used in intrusion detection and how they influence the capabilities of the intrusion detection system-Including host-based, network-based, and out-of-band sources.
  • Legal issues surrounding intrusion detection and monitoring that affect the design, development, and operation of intrusion detection systems.
  • Organization through a full acquisition-lifecycle-From initial requirements definition to deployment for a commercial intrusion detection product.
  • Choosing your systems' responses to detected problems and tie the results back into the site security management process.
  • Readers are able to assess the quality of a proposed or existing intrusion detection system design.

Back Cover

With the number of intrusion and hacking incidents around the world on the rise, the importance of having dependable intrusion detection systems in place is greater than ever. Offering both a developmental and technical perspective on this crucial element of network security, Intrusion Detection covers: practical considerations for selecting and implementing intrusion detection systems; methods of handling the results of analysis, and the options for responses to detected problems, data sources commonly used in intrusion detection and how they influence the capabilities of all intrusion detection systems; legal issues surrounding detection and monitoring that affect the design, development, and operation of intrusion detection systems. More than just an overview of the technology, Intrusion Detection presents real analysis schemes and responses, as well as a detailed discussion of the vulnerabilities inherent in many systems, and approaches to testing systems for these problems.
