In May 2013, Glenn Greenwald set out for Hong Kong to meet an anonymous source who claimed to have astonishing evidence of pervasive government spying and insisted on communicating only through heavily encrypted channels. That source turned out to be the 29-year-old NSA contractor Edward Snowden, and his revelations about the agency’s widespread, systemic overreach proved to be some of the most explosive and consequential news in recent history, triggering a fierce debate over national security and information privacy. As the arguments rage on and the government considers various proposals for reform, it is clear that we have yet to see the full impact of Snowden’s disclosures.

Now for the first time, Greenwald fits all the pieces together, recounting his high-intensity ten-day trip to Hong Kong, examining the broader implications of the surveillance detailed in his reporting for The Guardian, and revealing fresh information on the NSA’s unprecedented abuse of power with never-before-seen documents entrusted to him by Snowden himself.

Firewalls are among the best-known security tools in use today, and their critical role in information security continues to grow. However, firewalls are most effective when they are backed by effective security planning, a well-designed security policy, and when they work in concert with anti-virus software, intrusion detection systems, and other tools. This book aims to explore firewalls in the context of these other elements, providing readers with a solid, in-depth introduction to firewalls that focuses on both managerial and technical aspects of security. Coverage includes packet filtering, authentication, proxy servers, encryption, bastion hosts, virtual private networks (VPNs), log file maintenance, and intrusion detection systems. The second edition offers updated content and brand new material, from enhanced coverage of non-firewall subjects like information and network security to an all-new section dedicated to intrusion detection in the context of incident response.

Do you hear news everyday on the latest hacking attack, but just don’t quite understand what it is all about? Well this is the book for you. In BIT WARS, Dr. Thomas Hyslip presents the history of cybercrime, hacking and information warfare that has lead us to where we are today. Espionage, Stuxnet, Cyber Terrorism, Anonymous, TOR, the Deep Web, they are included. Hacking started as a quest for knowledge and curiosity, but has become a worldwide problem with no end in sight. The Center for Strategic and International Studies estimated the annual cost of cybercrime at more than $445 billion annually. Furthermore, the number and sophistication of attacks has steadily increased. In 2014, Target and Home Depot were victims of large scale point of sale attacks, and millions of credit and debit cards were stolen. Ebay lost the account information of over 233 million users, and Sony was attacked by North Korea in retaliation for the movie, “The Interview.” Read about it all in BIT WARS: Cyber Crime, Hacking and Information Warfare, and understand why you should be concerned.
