The book describes about the threats on the database.we provide descriptions and examples of how attacks of different type could be performed. we also present a methodology to prevent SQL injection attacks. It concentrate on the SQL queries and SQL Stored procedure where Input parameters are injected by the attacker.SQL injection refers to a class of code-injection attacks in which data provided by the user is included in an SQL query in such a way that part of the user’s input is treated as SQL code.Even if the injected code is intercepted before execution, administrators are often presented with information that does not identify clearly the association between the commands that were attempted, the assets that were at risk, the threats that were imposed, and the countermeasures he/she has at disposal. To address these issues, a repository of SQL injection attacks that are classified in a semantic-aware, easy to comprehend model is needed.

The Smart Grid security ecosystem is complex and multi-disciplinary, and relatively under-researched compared to the traditional information and network security disciplines. While the Smart Grid has provided increased efficiencies in monitoring power usage, directing power supplies to serve peak power needs and improving efficiency of power delivery, the Smart Grid has also opened the way for information security breaches and other types of security breaches. Potential threats range from meter manipulation to directed, high-impact attacks on critical infrastructure that could bring down regional or national power grids. It is essential that security measures are put in place to ensure that the Smart Grid does not succumb to these threats and to safeguard this critical infrastructure at all times.
Dr. Florian Skopik is one of the leading researchers in Smart Grid security, having organized and led research consortia and panel discussions in this field. Smart Grid Security will provide the first truly holistic view of leading edge Smart Grid security research. This book does not focus on vendor-specific solutions, instead providing a complete presentation of forward-looking research in all areas of Smart Grid security. The book will enable practitioners to learn about upcoming trends, scientists to share new directions in research, and government and industry decision-makers to prepare for major strategic decisions regarding implementation of Smart Grid technology.Presents the most current and leading edge research on Smart Grid security from a holistic standpoint, featuring a panel of top experts in the field.Includes coverage of risk management, operational security, and secure development of the Smart Grid.Covers key technical topics, including threat types and attack vectors, threat case studies, smart metering, smart home, e- mobility, smart buildings, DERs, demand response management, distribution grid operators, transmission grid operators, virtual power plants, resilient architectures, communications protocols and encryption, as well as physical security.
Build, test, and customize your own Capture the Flag challenges across multiple platforms designed to be attacked with Kali Linux
Overview Put the skills of the experts to the test with these tough and customisable pentesting projects Develop each challenge to suit your specific training, testing, or client engagement needs Hone your skills, from wireless attacks to social engineering, without the need to access live systems
As attackers develop more effective and complex ways to compromise computerized systems, penetration testing skills and tools are in high demand. A tester must have varied skills to combat these threats or fall behind. This book provides practical and customizable guides to set up a variety of exciting challenge projects that can then be tested with Kali Linux.
Learn how to create, customize, and exploit penetration testing scenarios and assault courses. Start by building flawed fortresses for Windows and Linux servers, allowing your testers to exploit common and not-so-common vulnerabilities to break down the gates and storm the walls. Mimic the human element with practical examples of social engineering projects. Facilitate vulnerable wireless and mobile installations and cryptographic weaknesses, and replicate the Heartbleed vulnerability. Finally, combine your skills and work to create a full red-team assessment environment that mimics the sort of corporate network encountered in the field.
What you will learn from this book Set up vulnerable services for both Windows and Linux Create dummy accounts for social engineering manipulation Set up Heartbleed replication for vulnerable SSL servers Develop full-size labs to challenge current and potential testers Construct scenarios that can be applied to Capture the Flag style challenges Add physical components to your scenarios and fire USB missile launchers at your opponents Challenge your own projects with a best-practice exploit guide to each scenario
Taking a highly practical approach and a playful tone, Kali Linux CTF Blueprints provides step-by-step guides to setting up vulnerabilities, in-depth guidance to exploiting them, and a variety of advice and ideas to build and customize your own challenges.
Who this book is written for
If you are a penetration testing team leader or individual who wishes to challenge yourself or your friends in the creation of penetration testing assault courses, this is the book for you. The book assumes a basic level of penetration skills and familiarity with the Kali Linux operating system.
While the deterrence of cyber attacks is one of the most important issues facing the United States and other nations, the application of deterrence theory to the cyber realm is problematic. This study introduces cyber warfare and reviews the challenges associated with deterring cyber attacks, offering key recommendations to aid the deterrence of major cyber attacks.
