Hacking:The Ultimate Guide for You to Learn the Hidden secrets of Hacking I assume there are a few inquiries that may be going through your mind as you consider perusing this book: Who is the target group for this book? How this book is not quite the same as hacking book (The Hackers Playbook)? Why would it be a good idea for me to purchase it? Since these are every reasonable inquiry and I am asking you to plunk down your well-deserved money, it is imperative to give a few answers to these inquiries. This book is intended to be an exceptionally delicate yet exhaustive manual for the secrets in the universe of hacking and infiltration testing. It is particularly written to help you ace the essential steps and hidden secret recipes expected to finish a hack or entrance test without overpowering you. When you complete this book, you will have a strong comprehension of the infiltration testing procedure and you will be OK with the hidden secrets and essential devices expected to finish the occupation. In particular, this book is designed for individuals who are new to the universe of hacking and entrance testing, for those with practically zero past experience, for the individuals who are baffled by the failure to see the master plan (how the different instruments and stages fit together), or for those hoping to learn hacking secrets and extend their insight into hostile security. Until you can take on a similar mindset as a terrible fellow and perceive the vulnerabilities in your frameworks, you can't manufacture a viable arrangement to keep your data secure. This book helps you remain focused of the security amusement! Here is exactly when you start thinking about penetration testing, weakness appraisals, security best practices, and each part of ethical hacking. This book is also about hacking ethically and the science of testing your computers and network for security vulnerabilities and plugging the holes you find before the bad guys get a chance to exploit them.
An examination of cyber attack threat trends including Stuxnet. With background on advanced persistent threats, cyber electronic warfare, cyber security standards, cyber-attacks, cyberterrorism, Operation High Roller, Operation Merlin, Operation Olympic Games, Siberian pipeline sabotage, Tailored Access Operations, and vulnerability of nuclear plants to attack.
The problem of modeling and detecting polymorphic engines shellcode is adressed in this book. By polymorphic engines, we mean programs having the ability to transform any piece of malware into many instances consisting of different code but having the same functionality as the original malware. Typically, polymorphic engines work by encrypting the target malware using various encryption techniques and providing a decryption module in order to execute the newly encrypted instance. Moreover, those engines have the ability to mutate their decryption routine making them unique from one instance to another and hard to detect. We propose a new concept of signatures, shape signatures, which cope with the highly mutated nature of those engines. The shape signatures try to identify the constant part as well as the mutated part of the deciphering routines. This combination is able to cope with the highly mutated nature of those engines in a much more efficient way compared to traditional signatures used in most intrusion detection systems. We also aim at modeling those polymorphic engines by showing that they exhibit a specific byte composition.
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.
Botnet is most widespread and occurs commonly in today‘s cyber attacks, resulting in serious threats to our network assets and organization’s properties. Botnets are collections of compromised computers (Bots) which are remotely controlled by its originator (BotMaster) under a common Command-and-Control (C&C) infrastructure. They are used to distribute commands to the Bots for malicious activities such as distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, spam and phishing. Most of the existing Botnet detection approaches concentrate only on particular Botnet command and control (C&C) protocols (e.g.,IRC,HTTP) and structures (e.g., centralized), and can become ineffective as Botnets change their structure and C&C techniques. In this book at first we provide taxonomy of Botnets C&C channels and evaluate well-known protocols which are being used in each of them. Then we proposed a new general detection framework which currently focuses on P2P based and IRC based Botnets. This proposed framework is based on definition of Botnets. Botnet has been defined as a group of bots that perform similar communication and malicious activity patterns within the same Botnet.
