Applied Network Security Monitoring is the essential guide to becoming an NSM analyst from the ground up. This book takes a fundamental approach to NSM, complete with dozens of real-world examples that teach you the key concepts of NSM. Network security monitoring is based on the principle that prevention eventually fails. In the current threat landscape, no matter how much you try, motivated attackers will eventually find their way into your network. At that point, it is your ability to detect and respond to that intrusion that can be the difference between a small incident and a major disaster. The book follows the three stages of the NSM cycle: collection, detection, and analysis. As you progress through each section, you will have access to insights from seasoned NSM professionals while being introduced to relevant, practical scenarios complete with sample data. If you've never performed NSM analysis, Applied Network Security Monitoring will give you an adequate grasp on the core concepts needed to become an effective analyst. If you are already a practicing analyst, this book will allow you to grow your analytic technique to make you more effective at your job. Discusses the proper methods for data collection, and teaches you how to become a skilled NSM analyst Provides thorough hands-on coverage of Snort, Suricata, Bro-IDS, SiLK, and Argus Loaded with practical examples containing real PCAP files you can replay, and uses Security Onion for all its lab examples Companion website includes up-to-date blogs from the authors about the latest developments in NSM

The foundational guide for using deception against computer network adversaries.When an attacker breaks into your network, you have a home-field advantage. But how do you use it?Intrusion Detection Honeypots is the foundational guide to building, deploying, and monitoring honeypots -- security resources whose value lies in being probed and attacked. These fake systems, services, and tokens lure attackers in, enticing them to interact. Unbeknownst to the attacker, those interactions generate logs that alert you to their presence and educate you about their tradecraft. Intrusion Detection Honeypots teaches you how to: Use the See-Think-Do framework to integrate honeypots into your network and lure attackers into your traps, leverage honey services that mimic HTTP, SSH, and RDP, hide honey tokens amongst legitimate documents, files, and folders, entice attackers to use fake credentials that give them away, create honey commands, honey tables, honey broadcasts, and other unique detection tools that leverage deception, and monitor honeypots for interaction and investigate the logs they generate.With the techniques in this book, you can safely use honeypots inside your network to detect adversaries before they accomplish their goals.

Many people think of the Smart Grid as a power distribution group built on advanced smart metering—but that’s just one aspect of a much larger and more complex system. The "Smart Grid" requires new technologies throughout energy generation, transmission and distribution, and even the homes and businesses being served by the grid. This also represents new information paths between these new systems and services, all of which represents risk, requiring a more thorough approach to where and how cyber security controls are implemented. This insight provides a detailed architecture of the entire Smart Grid, with recommended cyber security measures for everything from the supply chain to the consumer. Discover the potential of the Smart Grid Learn in depth about its systems See its vulnerabilities and how best to protect it

There is increasing pressure to protect computer networks against unauthorized intrusion, and some work in this area is concerned with engineering systems that are robust to attack. However, no system can be made invulnerable. Data Analysis for Network Cyber-Security focuses on monitoring and analyzing network traffic data, with the intention of preventing, or quickly identifying, malicious activity. Such work involves the intersection of statistics, data mining and computer science. Fundamentally, network traffic is relational, embodying a link between devices. As such, graph analysis approaches are a natural candidate. However, such methods do not scale well to the demands of real problems, and the critical aspect of the timing of communications events is not accounted for in these approaches. This book gathers papers from leading researchers to provide both background to the problems and a description of cutting-edge methodology. The contributors are from diverse institutions and areas of expertise and were brought together at a workshop held at the University of Bristol in March 2013 to address the issues of network cyber security. The workshop was supported by the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research.
