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.
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.
Security analytics can be defined as the process of continuously monitoring and analyzing all the activities in your enterprise network to ensure the minimal number of occurrences of security breaches. Security Analyst is the individual that is qualified to perform the functions necessary to accomplish the security monitoring goals of the organization. This book is intended to improve the ability of a security analyst to perform their day to day work functions in a more professional manner. Deeper knowledge of tools, processes and technology is needed for this. A firm understanding of all the domains of this book is going to be vital in achieving the desired skill set to become a professional security analyst. The attempt of this book is to address the problems associated with the content development (use cases and correlation rules) of SIEM deployments.
Intelligence-Led Security: How to Understand, Justify and Implement a New Approach to Security is a concise review of the concept of Intelligence-Led Security. Protecting a business, including its information and intellectual property, physical infrastructure, employees, and reputation, has become increasingly difficult. Online threats come from all sides: internal leaks and external adversaries; domestic hacktivists and overseas cybercrime syndicates; targeted threats and mass attacks. And these threats run the gamut from targeted to indiscriminate to entirely accidental.
Among thought leaders and advanced organizations, the consensus is now clear. Defensive security measures: antivirus software, firewalls, and other technical controls and post-attack mitigation strategies are no longer sufficient. To adequately protect company assets and ensure business continuity, organizations must be more proactive. Increasingly, this proactive stance is being summarized by the phrase Intelligence-Led Security: the use of data to gain insight into what can happen, who is likely to be involved, how they are likely to attack and, if possible, to predict when attacks are likely to come. In this book, the authors review the current threat-scape and why it requires this new approach, offer a clarifying definition of what Cyber Threat Intelligence is, describe how to communicate its value to business, and lay out concrete steps toward implementing Intelligence-Led Security.
