A practical handbook for computer network administrators focusing on routers, which connect the various pieces of a network. The text discusses everyday issues such as selecting routing protocols and configuring them to handle most common situations.
Covers all aspects of the protocol, including how to set up dial-in servers, authentication, debugging, and PPP options, as well as overviews of related areas such as serial communications, DNS setup, and routing. Original. (Intermediate).
Securing and Controlling Cisco Routers demonstrates proven techniques for strengthening network security. The book begins with an introduction to Cisco technology and the TCP/IP protocol suite. Subsequent chapters cover subjects such as routing, routing protocols, IP addressing, and Cisco Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting services (AAA)
PGP is a freely available encryption program that protects the privacy of files and electronic mail. It uses powerful public key cryptography and works on virtually every platform. This book is both a readable technical user's guide and a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at cryptography and privacy. It describes how to use PGP and provides background on cryptography, PGP's history, battles over public key cryptography patents and U.S. government export restrictions, and public debates about privacy and free speech.
Deborah Russell provides a broad introduction to the many areas of computer security and a detailed description of how the government sets standards and guidelines for security products. The book describes complicated concepts such as trusted systems, encryption and mandatory access control in simple terms, and includes an introduction to the "Orange Book".
Although IP and WDM technologies are expected to become the dominant network technologies, they will be introduced gradually complementing and replacing current ATM and SDH network solutions. This book represents a comprehensive review and research results for the deployment and management of IP over WDM Networks with guaranteed service level agreements.
Cisco routers are everywhere that networks are. They come in all sizes, from inexpensive units for homes and small offices to equipment costing well over $100,000 and capable of routing at gigabit speeds. A fixture in today's networks, Cisco claims roughly 70% of the router market, producing high-end switches, hubs, and other network hardware. One unifying thread runs through the product line: virtually all of Cisco's products run the Internetwork Operating System, or IOS. If you work with Cisco routers, it's likely that you deal with Cisco's IOS software--an extremely powerful and complex operating system, with an equally complex configuration language. With a cryptic command-line interface and thousands of commands--some of which mean different things in different situations--it doesn't have a reputation for being user-friendly. Fortunately, there's help. This second edition of Cisco IOS in a Nutshell consolidates the most important commands and features of IOS into a single, well-organized volume that you'll find refreshingly user-friendly. This handy, two-part reference covers IOS configuration for the TCP/IP protocol family. The first section includes chapters on the user interface, configuring lines and interfaces, access lists, routing protocols, and dial-on-demand routing and security. A brief, example-filled tutorial shows you how to accomplish common tasks. The second part is a classic O'Reilly quick reference to all the commands for working with TCP/IP and the lower-level protocols on which it relies. Brief descriptions and lists of options help you zero in on the commands you for the task at hand. Updated to cover Cisco IOS Software Major Release 12.3, this second edition includes lots of examples of the most common configuration steps for the routers themselves. It's a timely guide that any network administrator will come to rely on.
When you first hear the term Information Assurance you tend to conjure up an image of a balanced set of reasonable measures that have been taken to protect the information after an assessment has been made of risks that are posed to it. In truth this is the Holy Grail that all organisations that value their information should strive to achieve, but which few even understand. Information Assurance is a term that has recently come into common use. When talking with old timers in IT (or at least those that are over 35 years old), you will hear them talking about information security, a term that has survived since the birth of the computer. In the more recent past, the term Information Warfare was coined to describe the measures that need to be taken to defend and attack information. This term, however, has military connotations - after all, warfare is normally their domain. Shortly after the term came into regular use, it was applied to a variety of situations encapsulated by Winn Schwartau as the three classes of Information Warfare: Class 1- Personal Information Warfare. Class 2 - Corporate Information Warfare. Class 3 - Global Information Warfare. Political sensitivities lead to "warfare" being replaced by "operations", a much more "politically correct" word. Unfortunately, "operations" also has an offensive connotation and is still the terminology of the military and governments.
Learn how to manage and deploy the latest IP services in Cisco-centric networks. Understand VPN security concepts: confidentiality, integrity, origin authentication, non-repudiation, anti-replay, perfect forward secrecy Deploy quality of service technologies to protect your mission-critical applications Find out how IPsec technology works and how to configure it in IOS Learn how to set up a router as a firewall and intrusion detection system Gain efficient use of your IP address space with NAT, VLSM, IP unnumbered Solve real-world routing problems with redistribution, route filtering, summarization, policy routing Enable authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) security services wih RADIUS and TACACS+ servers Enhanced IP Services for Cisco Networks is a guide to the new enabling and advanced IOS services that build more scalable, intelligent, and secure networks. You will learn the technical details necessary to deploy quality of service and VPN technologies, as well as improved security and advanced routing features. These services will allow you to securely extend the network to new frontiers, protect your network from attacks, and enhance network transport with application-level prioritization. This book offers a practical guide to implementing IPsec, the IOS Firewall, and IOS Intrusion Detection System. Also included are advanced routing principles and quality of service features that focus on improving the capability of your network. A good briefing on cryptography fully explains the science that makes VPNs possible. Rather than being another routing book, this is a guide to improving your network's capabilities by understanding and using the sophisticated features available to you in Cisco's IOS software
This handbook covers the ten domains of the Information Security Common Body of Knowledge. It is designed to empower the security professional and the chief information officer with information such that they can do their duty, protect the information assets of their organizations.
