The focus of this chapter is two-fold: It first presents the classical network attacks (such as Session Hijacking, Man-in-the-Middle attack, DNS attacks, Distributed Denial of Service attacks, and other miscellaneous attacks), which have exploited the various vulnerabilities of computer networks in the past, and reviews the solutions that have been implemented since then to mitigate or reduce the chances of these attacks.
The authors then present the different network security controls, including the protocols and standards (such as IPSec, Kerberos, Secure Shell, Transport Layer Security, Virtual Private Networks, Firewalls, and S/MIME) that have been adopted in modern day computer networks to control the incidence of attacks in modern day computer networks.
