In this quantitative quasi-experimental study two distributed denial of service attacks were captured and the characteristics of the attacks were used to detect botnets by identifying egressing distributed denial of service attack packets at the source of the attack. A sample Dark DDoSer botnet was constructed and used to launch a distributed denial of service attack. The characteristics of the distributed denial of service attacks were used as the independent variables in a quasi-experiment where network traffic was monitored with Snort to detect DDoS packets. The dependent variable for the experiment was false positive alerts for the DDoS packets. The findings showed that the characteristics of a distributed denial of service attack can be used to pro-actively detect botnets through egress monitoring.

The Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) allows information to be exchanged between a web server and a web browser. C# allows you to program HTTP directly. HTTP programming allows you to create programs that access the web much like a human user would. These programs, which are called bots, can collect information or automate common web programming tasks. This book presents a collection of very reusable recipes for C# bot programming. This book covers many topics related to C# HTTP programming. Both secure and insecure HTTP communications are covered, as well as HTTP authentication. Learn to interact with HTTP forms and support both HTTP POST and HTTP GET requests. Collect data from a wide array of HTML constructs, such as tables, and lists. Learn about advanced topics that complicate the life of a bot, such as AJAX and Javascript. Also learn about the ethical use of bots, and when bots should not be used. This book also introduces the Heaton Research Spider. The Heaton Research Spider is an open source spider framework. Using the Heaton Research Spider you can create spiders that will crawl a web site, much like a real spider crawls the web. The Heaton Research Spider is available in both Java and Microsoft Dot Net form.

Port Scanners: Nmap, Netcat, Solarwinds, Packettrap, Plixer, Shields Up

Port Scanners: Nmap, Netcat, Solarwinds, Packettrap, Plixer International, Shields UpChapters: Nmap, Netcat, Solarwinds, Packettrap, Plixer International, Shields Up. Source: Wikipedia. Pages: 28. Not illustrated. Free updates online. Purchase includes a free trial membership in the publisher's book club where you can select from more than a million books without charge. Excerpt: Nmap (Network MAPper) is a security scanner originally written by Gordon Lyon (also known by his pseudonym Fyodor Vaskovich) used to discover hosts and services on a computer network, thus creating a “map” of the network. To accomplish its goal nmap sends specially crafted packets to the target host and then analyzes the responses. Unlike many simple port scanners that just send packets at some predefined constant rate, nmap accounts for the network conditions (latency fluctuations, network congestion, the target interference with the scan) during the run. Also, owing to the large and active user community providing feedback on its features and contributing back, nmap has succeeded to extend its discovery capabilities beyond basic host being up/down or port being open/closed to being able to determine operating system of the target, names and versions of the listening services, estimate uptime, the type of device, presence of the firewall. Nmap runs on Linux, Microsoft Windows, Solaris, HP-UX and BSD variants (including Mac OS X), and also on AmigaOS and SGI IRIX. Linux is the most popular nmap platform with Windows following it closely. Nmap features include: Typical uses of Nmap: NmapFE, originally written by Zach Smith, was Nmap's official GUI for Nmap versions 2.2 to 4.22. For Nmap 4.50 (originally in the 4.22SOC development series) NmapFE was replaced with Zenmap, a new graphical user interface based on UMIT, developed by Adriano Monteiro Marques. Various web-based interfaces have also been available for controlling Nmap remotely from a web browser. These include LOCALSCAN, nmap-web, and Nmap-CGI.
