Hacking: The Art of Exploitation, 2nd Edition - Jon Erickson Cover Art

Hacking: The Art of Exploitation, 2nd Edition

Hacking: The Art of Exploitation, 2nd Edition by Jon Erickson

Hacking is the art of creative problem solving, whether that means finding an unconventional solution to a difficult problem or exploiting holes in sloppy programming. Many people call themselves hackers, but few have the strong technical foundation needed to really push the envelope. Rather than merely showing how to run existing exploits, author Jon Erickson explains how arcane hacking techniques actually work. To share the art and science of hacking in a way that is accessible to everyone, Hacking: The Art of Exploitation, 2nd Edition introduces the fundamentals of C programming from a hacker's perspective. The included LiveCD provides a complete Linux programming and debugging environment—all without modifying your current operating system. Use it to follow along with the book's examples as you fill gaps in your knowledge and explore hacking techniques on your own. Get your hands dirty debugging code, overflowing buffers, hijacking network communications, bypassing protections, exploiting cryptographic weaknesses, and perhaps even inventing new exploits. This book will teach you how to: – Program computers using C, assembly language, and shell scripts – Corrupt system memory to run arbitrary code using buffer overflows and format strings – Inspect processor registers and system memory with a debugger to gain a real understanding of what is happening – Outsmart common security measures like nonexecutable stacks and intrusion detection systems – Gain access to a remote server using port-binding or connect-back shellcode, and alter a server's logging behavior to hide your presence – Redirect network traffic, conceal open ports, and hijack TCP connections – Crack encrypted wireless traffic using the FMS attack, and speed up brute-force attacks using a password probability matrix Hackers are always pushing the boundaries, investigating the unknown, and evolving their art. Even if you don't already know how to program, Hacking: The Art of Exploitation, 2nd Edition will give you a complete picture of programming, machine architecture, network communications, and existing hacking techniques. Combine this knowledge with the included Linux environment, and all you need is your own creativity.

Ghost in the Wires

Ghost in the Wires My Adventures as the World's Most Wanted Hacker by William L. Simon, Steve Wozniak & Kevin Mitnick

In this "intriguing, insightful and extremely educational" novel, the world's most famous hacker teaches you easy cloaking and counter-measures for citizens and consumers in the age of Big Brother and Big Data (Frank W. Abagnale). Kevin Mitnick was the most elusive computer break-in artist in history. He accessed computers and networks at the world's biggest companies -- and no matter how fast the authorities were, Mitnick was faster, sprinting through phone switches, computer systems, and cellular networks. As the FBI's net finally began to tighten, Mitnick went on the run, engaging in an increasingly sophisticated game of hide-and-seek that escalated through false identities, a host of cities, and plenty of close shaves, to an ultimate showdown with the Feds, who would stop at nothing to bring him down. Ghost in the Wires is a thrilling true story of intrigue, suspense, and unbelievable escapes -- and a portrait of a visionary who forced the authorities to rethink the way they pursued him, and forced companies to rethink the way they protect their most sensitive information. "Mitnick manages to make breaking computer code sound as action-packed as robbing a bank." -- NPR

Day One Exploring IPV6 - Chris Grundemann Cover Art

Day One Exploring IPV6

Day One Exploring IPV6 by Chris Grundemann

The impending exhaustion of IPv4 addresses is prompting many network operators to look closer at ways to provide more address space, including IPv6 and NAT solutions. When deploying IPv6, you can gain a great advantage by using Juniper Networks high-end routers because IPv6 has been implemented directly in the ASICs (Application-Specific Integrated Circuit). Having IPv6 compatibility in the hardware means that IPv6 packets can be forwarded at line rate – unlike many competing routers. Additionally, the Junos OS makes configuring and troubleshooting an IPv6 network a snap. As you read this booklet and work through the topics in your lab, you’ll progressively gain a fuller understanding of IPv6 configuration and operation in Junos. The layered, methodical progression provided will get you up to speed on this crucial networking technology quickly and easily. IT’S DAY ONE AND YOU HAVE A JOB TO DO, SO LEARN HOW TO: - Understand IPv6 address length, and read IPv6 addresses. - Add family inet6 and IPv6 addresses to all types of interfaces. - Set up and test IPv6 neighbor discovery and how to implement static routes in IPv6. - Use basic IPv6 troubleshooting and verification commands, such as ping, traceroute, and various show commands. - Understand how the three IGPs support IPv6: RIPng, OSPF3, and IS-IS.

Day One: Configuring Junos Policies and Firewall Filters - Jack W. Parks, IV Cover Art

Day One: Configuring Junos Policies and Firewall Filters

Day One: Configuring Junos Policies and Firewall Filters by Jack W. Parks, IV

Day One: Configuring Junos Policies and Firewall Filters Pairing routing policy and firewall filters may, at first glance, seem like an odd combination for a routing book, after all, filters are for security and policy is about manipulating route attributes and readvertisement. While route advertisement decisions can impact security, these two topics are more logically bundled into a single book because of the high degree of similarity in their Junos configuration syntax. Knowing one simply helps you learn the other, and given that both are critically important topics in modern IP networks, their synergy should not be ignored. Day One: Configuring Junos Policies and Firewall Filters shows how the savvy network administrator can make unified and robust efficiencies using two similar tools from their Junos toolbox. “Jack Parks provides clear, concise descriptions and configuration examples to illustrate basic concepts as well as complex examples that demystify policy and filter operations and capabilities that are not widely understood. this is your chance to finally understand why that nested firewall or Boolean grouped policy did not behave as you expected.”  Harry Reynolds, Author, Senior Test Engineer, Juniper Networks IT’S DAY ONE AND YOU HAVE A JOB TO DO, SO LEARN HOW TO: • Describe the features of policy, firewall filters, and policers in Junos.  • Understand the differences between policy and firewall filters.  • Configure policy, firewall filters, and policers in the Junos CLI.  • Create useful policies for your network. • Understand how policy flow and default policy actions work in Junos.  • Develop a foundation for advanced routing policy topics.  • Create hierarchical policy and chain policy together.  • Create routing policies that share or filter routes with other routers in the network.  Juniper Networks Books are singularly focused on network productivity and efficiency.

iCloud for Beginners - Scott La Counte Cover Art

iCloud for Beginners

iCloud for Beginners A Ridiculously Simple Guide to Online Storage by Scott La Counte

A beginners guide to moving to the cloud. iCloud is something that Apple doesn't talk a lot about but is perhaps their biggest service. It's estimated that nearly 850 million people use it. The thing about it, however, is many people don't even know they're using it. What exactly is it? If you are familiar with Google Drive, then the concept is something you probably already understand. It's an online storage locker. But it's more than that. It is a place where you can store files, and it also syncs everything-so if you send a message on your iPhone, it appears on your MacBook and iPad. If you work on a Keynote presentation from your iPad, you can continue where you left off on your iPhone. iCloud has become even more powerful as our photo library grows. Photos used to be relatively small, but as cameras have advanced, the size goes up. Most photos on your phone are several MB big. iCloud means you can keep the newest ones on your phone and put the older ones in the cloud. It also means you don't have to worry about paying for the phone with the biggest hard drive-in fact, even if you have the biggest hard drive, there's a chance it won't fit all of your photos. This short book will help new users navigate their way around the cloud service.

The Little Book of macOS Server - Nicholas Rushton Cover Art

The Little Book of macOS Server

The Little Book of macOS Server by Nicholas Rushton

This guide describes how to setup a network based around Apple’s macOS Server software, which runs on the company’s own Mac hardware, whether Apple Silicon or Intel based. It is intended for someone who is responsible for setting up a network for use in a small business, home, home-based office or other organization such as a church, charity, small school and so on. It addresses what some refer to as ‘the Goldilocks problem’, meaning that the built-in help system of macOS Server is too basic and lacking in practical information, whereas the limited, pricey and often outdated reference guides that are available are just too complicated for many people. Hopefully, this is somewhere towards the middle ground. It assumes a reasonable working knowledge of the Mac and a general appreciation of what is involved in small computer networking, whilst trying to avoid the geeky stuff. Incidentally, the guide is not exclusively for Apple users and, in recognition of the fact that many people work in a mixed environment, includes information on how to connect and use Windows computers, Linux computers and Chromebooks as well. Although this book is about macOS Server, it is also possible to create a functional server without using it at all, using the built-in networking features in all modern versions of macOS; this lacks a small number of management features but is suitable for smaller networks and supplementary information how to go about it is described in the Appendix. even includes an Appendix to help setup a network using just the built-in features of macOS and without using the Server app at all.
