This book presents the latest research on the challenges and solutions affecting the equilibrium between freedom of speech, freedom of information, information security and the right to informational privacy. Given the complexity of the topics addressed, the book shows how old legal and ethical frameworks may need to be not only updated, but also supplemented and complemented by new conceptual solutions. Neither a conservative attitude (“more of the same”) nor a revolutionary zeal (“never seen before”) is likely to lead to satisfactory solutions. Instead, more reflection and better conceptual design are needed, not least to harmonise different perspectives and legal frameworks internationally. The focus of the book is on how we may reconcile high levels of information security with robust degrees of informational privacy, also in connection with recent challenges presented by phenomena such as “big data” and security scandals, as well as new legislation initiatives, such as those concerning “the right to be forgotten” and the use of personal data in biomedical research. The book seeks to offer analyses and solutions of the new tensions, in order to build a fair, shareable and sustainable balance in this vital area of human interactions.
Today, our entire modern way of life, from communication to commerce to conflict, fundamentally depends on the Internet. And the cybersecurity issues that result challenge literally everyone. We face new questions in everything from our rights and responsibilities as citizens of both the online and real world to simply how to protect ourselves and our families from a new type of danger. The key question areas of cyberspace and its security: how it all works, why it all matters, and what can we do?
The Russian President is raging as oil revenues have halved and the West’s sanctions are biting. To pacify him, Igor Komarov his chief fixer has urged retaliation through cyber warfare. To guarantee success, however, he needs the new ultimate cyber weapon – it’s existence is known but not its whereabouts. Can he find it before the President disposes of him?
His luck is in. A surveillance fluke discloses its secret location. He conjures up a conspiracy with the Russian mafia to steal it. But unforeseen problems arise –New York Mafia and organised crime are also after such powerful prize – what could they extort if they could use it to hold an air-traffic control centre to ransom?
This thriller races from the Far East to London, from New York to Moscow and a remote Scottish island. In just five days, a mix international banking, compromised government agencies, conspirators, and the weapon’s resolute defenders pit their wits against each other. Each suffer a seesaw of successes and setbacks. One thing’s for sure, there can only be one winner.
This book will make you an expert in Kali Linux penetration testing. It covers all the most advanced tools and techniques to reproduce the methods used by sophisticated hackers. Full of real-world examples – an indispensable manual.s
Overview Conduct realistic and effective security tests on your network Demonstrate how key data systems are stealthily exploited, and learn how to identify attacks against your own systems Use hands-on techniques to take advantage of Kali Linux, the open source framework of security tools
Mastering Kali Linux for Advanced Penetration Testing will teach you the kill chain perspective in assessing network security – from selecting the most effective tools, to rapidly compromising network security, to highlighting the techniques used to avoid detection.
This book will take you, as a tester, through the reconnaissance, exploitation, and post-exploitation activities used by penetration testers and hackers. After learning the hands-on techniques to perform an effective and covert attack, specific routes to the target will be examined, including bypassing physical security. You will also get to grips with concepts such as social engineering, attacking wireless networks, web services, and remote access connections. Finally, you will focus on the most vulnerable part of the network – directly attacking the end user.
This book will provide all the practical knowledge needed to test your network's security using a proven hacker's methodology.
What you will learn from this book Employ the methods used by real hackers effectively, to ensure the most effective penetration testing of your network Select and configure the most effective tools from Kali Linux to test network security Employ stealth to avoid detection in the network being tested Recognize when stealthy attacks are being used against your network Exploit networks and data systems using wired and wireless networks as well as web services Identify and download valuable data from target systems Maintain access to compromised systems Use social engineering to compromise the weakest part of the network -the end users
This book provides an overview of the kill chain approach to penetration testing, and then focuses on using Kali Linux to provide examples of how this methodology is applied in the real world. After describing the underlying concepts, step-by-step examples are provided that use selected tools to demonstrate the techniques.
Homeland Security Agent Joe Maki was completing the aftermath mop up of the Boston Marathon Bombing investigation when something came up. It was an encounter with a former Russian operative, one of the famous embedded spies, known to the agency as Milton Ericson. His chilling account of the latest Russian espionage would set in motion a vast gathering of Homeland and FBI agents in a desperate effort to head off what was being called World War Zero Sum DAY!
New advances in computer technology coupled with far-sighted Russian Bureaucrats made the impossible into ominous reality right here on American soil! Since it no longer was needed for information purposes continuous news coverage and cell/Satellite phones took care of that, the Russian spy network could actually become the front line for a war waged against American financial supremacy. The Cold War had just become Cyber War!
The reader will be joining the Homeland Team as they investigate this dangerous plot. For those who willed the Cold War to be over, things are heating up again!
