The .NET Framework offers new, more effective ways to secure your Web and LAN-based applications. .NET Development Security Solutions uses detailed, code-intensive examples—lots of them—to teach you the right techniques for most scenarios you're likely to encounter. This is not an introduction to security; it's an advanced cookbook that shows experienced programmers how to meet tough security challenges: Recognize and avoid dangerous traps—including holes in .NET Work fluently with both role-based and code access security Maximize the security advantages of policies and code groups Promote security using Active Directory Secure data with .NET cryptographic techniques Meet the toughest LAN security requirements Tackle special security issues associated with Web and wireless applications Implement Win32 API security in managed applications Uniting this instruction is a coherent, cohesive mindset that will help you take the human factor into account at every step. You'll become technically proficient with all the tools at your disposal—and, at the same time, you'll learn to make your solutions more powerful by crafting them in ways that dovetail with users' needs—and foibles—and anticipate cracker exploits.
Threats come from a variety of sources. Insider threats, as well as malicious hackers, are not only difficult to detect and prevent, but many times the authors of these threats are using resources without anybody being aware that those threats are there. Threats would not be harmful if there were no vulnerabilities that could be exploited. With IT environments becoming more complex every day, the challenges to keep an eye on all potential weaknesses are skyrocketing. Smart methods to detect threats and vulnerabilities, as well as highly efficient approaches to analysis, mitigation, and remediation, become necessary to counter a growing number of attacks against networks, servers, and endpoints in every organization. In this IBM® Redbooks® publication, we examine the aspects of the holistic Threat and Vulnerability Management component in the Network, Server and Endpoint domain of the IBM Security Framework. We explain the comprehensive solution approach, identify business drivers and issues, and derive corresponding functional and technical requirements, which enables us to choose and create matching security solutions. We discuss IBM Security Solutions for Network, Server and Endpoint to effectively counter threats and attacks using a range of protection technologies and service offerings. Using two customer scenarios, we apply the solution design approach and show how to address the customer requirements by identifying the corresponding IBM service and software products.

The Nokia Network Security Solutions Handbook introduces readers to both the basics and the finer points of administering, configuring, and securing the Nokia IP-series hardware appliances. It introduces readers to the different hardware models and covers the features associated with each. Installation and setup are covered in detail, as well as installation and configuration of the Check Point firewall on the Nokia system. Readers will learn basic system administration, security, and monitoring before moving into advanced system administration concepts, as well as learning how to use Nokia's command line interface. Routing configurations and the different protocols involved are covered in detail, finishing off with a comprehensive discussion of the High-availability configuration that is Nokia's strength. The appendices include coverage of the UNIX basics which lie at the heart of the IPSO operating system and a review of the other packages available for Nokia systems (such as Perl and Bash). The only book dedicated to coverage of the latest Nokia hardware and software offerings, from the SOHO appliances to the enterprise-class IP700 series, with an emphasis on administering and securing these systems. Long-term market potential. The operating system referenced will be Nokia IPSO 3.4.1, which has an interface that has been specifically tailored to make upgrading to newer versions of IPSO simple and intuitive. In addition, the underlying interface is UNIX based, which has been a constant for over 30 years. Up-to-the-Minute Web-based Support.

In networks today, organizations are faced with hundreds of new web and non-web applications that are available to their users. Social media applications, peer-to-peer file transfer applications, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), web-based email, cloud data storage, and many others are all readily available. The ease and speed at which these new applications can be installed or simply accessed reduces the effectiveness of a perimeter-based security architecture and provides many new types of risks. These applications can be used by an attacker to obtain initial access into the organization and bypass any perimeter-based security. This IBM® RedguideTM publication introduces the solution, which is a (IPS) that extends the capabilities of traditional protocol-based IPSes by providing application visibility and control. By using IBM X-Force® Research And Development, this solution provides critical insight and control of all user activities by analyzing each connection to identify the web or non-web application in use and the action being taken. The IBM Security Network Protection solution can then decide to allow or block the connection, and can inspect even those connections that are encrypted by SSL. Additionally, the X-Force IP Reputation information can be used to understand whether sites that are accessed are hosting malware, are BotNet Command and Control servers (C&C servers), or are phishing sites, and other important information. The IBM Security Network Protection can record connection information, including user and application context, and can use this information for local policy refinement, including bandwidth management. Alternatively, the connection information can be sent to a (SIEM) for security analysis and longer term storage. The IBM Security Network Protection consolidation of the traditional IPS function, in combination with sophisticated user-based application control and IP Reputation, can provide an integrated security solution. This approach allows for faster deployment and simplification of the administration that is associated with the deployment of multiple products, reduces the cost of ownership and complexity, and provides for better return on investment (ROI). The target audience for this publication is business leaders, decision makers, network managers, IT security managers, and IT and business consultants.

Network security is concerned with creating a secure inter-connected network that is designed so that on the one hand, users cannot perform actions that they are not allowed to perform, but on the other hand, can perform the actions that they are allowed to. Network security not only involves specifying and implementing a security policy that describes access control, but also implementing an Intrusion Detection System as a tool for detecting attempted attacks or intrusions by crackers or automated attack tools and identifying security breaches such as incoming shellcode, viruses, worms, malware and trojan horses transmitted via a computer system or network. Today’s computer infrastructure is exposed to several kinds of security threats ranging from virus attacks, unauthorised data access, sniffing and password cracking. Understanding network vulnerabilities in order to protect networks from external and internal threats is vital to the world’s economy and should be given the highest priority. Computer and network security involves many important and complicated issues and this gathering of scientists will help not only in raising awareness but also in teaching participants the state-of-the-art of security techniques. Topics in network security, information security and coding are discussed in this volume.
