“Practical Intrusion Analysis provides a solid fundamental overview of the art and science of intrusion analysis.”
—Nate Miller, Cofounder, Stratum Security
The Only Definitive Guide to New State-of-the-Art Techniques in Intrusion Detection and Prevention
Recently, powerful innovations in intrusion detection and prevention have evolved in response to emerging threats and changing business environments. However, security practitioners have found little reliable, usable information about these new IDS/IPS technologies. In Practical Intrusion Analysis, one of the field’s leading experts brings together these innovations for the first time and demonstrates how they can be used to analyze attacks, mitigate damage, and track attackers.
Ryan Trost reviews the fundamental techniques and business drivers of intrusion detection and prevention by analyzing today’s new vulnerabilities and attack vectors. Next, he presents complete explanations of powerful new IDS/IPS methodologies based on Network Behavioral Analysis (NBA), data visualization, geospatial analysis, and more.
Writing for security practitioners and managers at all experience levels, Trost introduces new solutions for virtually every environment. Coverage includes
