Introduction to Network Security

Interesting Research Book in Introduction to Network Security

Author(s) Name:  Douglas Jacobson

About the Book:

   The book examines various network protocols, focusing on vulnerabilities, exploits, attacks, and methods to mitigate an attack. The book begins with a brief discussion of network architectures and the functions of layers in a typical network. It then examines vulnerabilities and attacks divided into four categories: header-, protocol-, authentication-, and traffic-based. The author next explores the physical, network, and transport layers of each network as well as the security of several common network applications. The last section recommends several network-based security solutions that can be successfully deployed.
   This book uses a define-attack-defend methodology for network security. The author briefly introduces the relevant protocols and follows up with detailed descriptions of known vulnerabilities and possible attack methods.
