Networks and Netwars: The Future of Terror, Crime, and Militancy

Networks and Netwars: The Future of Terror, Crime, and MilitancyNetwar-like cyberwar-describes a new spectrum of conflict that is emerging in the wake of the information revolution. Netwar includes conflicts waged, on the one hand, by terrorists, criminals, gangs, and ethnic extremists; and by civil-society activists (such as cyber activists or WTO protestors) on the other. What distinguishes netwar is the networked organizational structure of its practitioners-with many groups actually being leaderless-and their quickness in coming together in swarming attacks. To confront this new type of conflict, it is crucial for governments, military, and law enforcement to begin networking themselves.

Hack Attacks Encyclopedia: A Complete History of Hacks, Cracks, Phreaks, and Spies

Hack Attacks Encyclopedia: A Complete History of Hacks, Cracks, Phreaks, and Spies over TimeA complete library of the hottest, never-before-published underground hack variations
In his highly provocative books, Hack Attacks Revealed (0-471-41624-X) and Hack Attacks Denied (0-471-41625-8), corporate hack master John Chirillo described the tools, techniques, and primary code that hackers use to exploit network security loopholes and then shows specific methods for blocking these attacks. However, now that so many of their standard techniques have been revealed, underground hackers and cyberpunks are again skirting the system, going beyond primary code, and resorting to using complex code variations of old techniques. That's where this book breaks new ground–by providing, for the first time, the most comprehensive compendium of all the complex variations of these techniques, both historical and current, that the hacking underground doesn't want you to see. It offers astounding details on just about every tool used by those who break into corporate networks–information that will go a long way toward helping you close any remaining security gaps. An ideal companion volume to the other “Hack Attacks” books, Hack Attacks Complete:
o Covers hacks from the 1970s all the way to new millennium hacks
o Details every permutation, variation, and category of hacking tools
o Categorizes hacks for easy reference, with such categories as hacking, cracking, phreaking, spying, anarchy and underground spite, and hack/phreak technical library

The Ethical Hack: A Framework for Business Value Penetration Testing

The EthACical Hack: A Framework for Business Value Penetration TestingThe Ethical Hack: A Framework for Business Value Penetration Testing lays out the underlying methodologies and concepts required for performing successful and valuable penetration testing. The author discusses the process of penetration testing from a consultative point of view to ensure that the true value of the test is realized. He supplies a technical perspective of the common tools and exploits used by attackers along with the rational for why they are used and the information they provide the attacker. Finally, the text brings it all together in the form of attack scenarios to show the complete cycle of the attack from the hacker's perspective to the client's.

Computer Attack and Cyberterrorism

Computer Attack and CyberterrorismMany international terrorist groups now actively use computers and the Internet to communicate, and several may develop or acquire the necessary technical skills to direct a co-ordinated attack against computers in the United States. A cyberattack intended to harm the U.S. economy would likely target computers that operate the civilian critical infrastructure and government agencies. However, there is disagreement among some observers about whether a co-ordinated cyberattack against the U.S. critical infrastructure could be extremely harmful, or even whether computers operating the civilian critical infrastructure actually offer an effective target for furthering terrorists' goals. While there is no published evidence that terrorist organizations are currently planning a co-ordinated attack against computers, computer system vulnerabilities persist world-wide, and initiators of the random cyberattacks that plague computers on the Internet remain largely unknown. Reports from security organisations show that random attacks are now increasingly implemented through use of automated tools, called ‘bots', that direct large numbers of compromised computers to launch attacks through the Internet as swarms. The growing trend toward the use of more automated attack tools has also overwhelmed some of the current methodologies used for tracking Internet cyberattacks. This book provides background information for three types of attacks against computers (cyberattack, physical attack, and electromagnetic attack), and discusses related vulnerabilities for each type of attack.The book also describes the possible effects of a co-ordinated cyberattack, or computer network attack (CNA), against U.S. infrastructure computers, along with possible technical capabilities of international terrorists. Issues for Congress may include how could trends in cyberattacks be measured more effectively; what is appropriate guidance for DOD use of cyberweapons; should cybersecurity be combined with, or remain separate from, the physical security organization within DHS; how can commercial vendors be encouraged to improve the security of their products; and what are options to encourage U.S. citizens to follow better cybersecurity practices. Appendices to this book describe computer viruses, spyware, and ‘bot networks', and how malicious programs are used to enable cybercrime and cyberespionage. Also, similarities are drawn between planning tactics currently used by computer hackers and those used by terrorists groups for conventional attacks.
