Cyber warfare is gaining prominence as a serious tactic in military conflicts throughout the world. And, as the most network-dependent nation on earth, the United States is the most vulnerable. Military expert and author Paul J. Springer examines the many facets of cyber combat—from the threats of information exposure that American civilians encounter on a daily basis, to the concern of keeping up with the capabilities of China and Russia, to the inherent dangers in ignoring cyber threats.

This essential reference—the only of its kind to include an overview of other cyber warfare literature—emphasizes the importance of cyber operations in modern conflicts, detailing the efforts that have been made by government agencies to create networks that are secure. Noted experts in the field weigh in on the problems of attribution during a cyber attack, the detection of cyber intrusions, and the possible solutions for preventing data breaches. The book features profiles of theorists, commanders, and inventors; as well as organizations dedicated to cyber attacks, including government and military operations, industrial cyber security companies, and academic centers.

Essential Skills for Hackers is about the skills you need to be in the elite hacker family.

The book will mainly about two things: TCP/IP 101, and Protocol Analysis. The better the hacker, the more we will be able to master TCP/IP. Once the reader understands what TCP/IP is, what it looks like, the book will go into Protocol Analysis and how analyzing the protocol or, in a more general sense, looking at packets on the wire, we will be able to determine what exactly is taking place on a network. By doing this, readers can identify when something on the network doesn’t match what it should and, more importantly, can create any type of sequence of events or packets that they want on the network and see how the defenses or the machines that we send them to react.

Penetration test or pentest is a typical security assessment which is the process to gain access to specific information assets (eq. computer systems, network infrastructure, or application). Penetration test simulates the attack performed internally or externally by the attackers which has the intention to find security weaknesses or vulnerabilities and validate the potential impacts and risks should those vulnerabilities being exploited. Security issues found through penetration test are presented to the system’s owner, data owner or risk owner. Effective penetration test will support this information with accurate assessment of the potential impacts to the organization and range of technical and procedural safeguards should be planned and executed to mitigate risks. Many penetration testers are in fact very good in technical since they have skills needed to perform all of the tests, but they are lack of report writing methodology and approach which create a very big gap in penetration testing cycle. A penetration test is useless without something tangible to give to a client or senior management. Report writing is a crucial part for any service providers (eq. IT service/advisory). A report should detail the outcome of the test and, if you are making recommendations, document the recommendations to secure any high-risk systems. The target audience of a penetration testing report will vary, technical report will be read by IT or any responsible information security people while executive summary will definitely be read by the senior management. Writing an effective penetration testing report is an art that needs to be learned and to make sure that the report will deliver the right information to the targeted audience. After reading the book, you will be able to: understand on how to create a good and effective penetration testing report; understand the mechanism to provide an effective deliverables; apply risk management knowledge & skills and blend them in your deliverables.
