A comprehensive guide for deploying, configuring, and troubleshooting NetFlow and learning big data analytics technologies for cyber security Today’s world of network security is full of cyber security vulnerabilities, incidents, breaches, and many headaches. Visibility into the network is an indispensable tool for network and security professionals and Cisco NetFlow creates an environment where network administrators and security professionals have the tools to understand who, what, when, where, and how network traffic is flowing. Network Security with NetFlow and IPFIX is a key resource for introducing yourself to and understanding the power behind the Cisco NetFlow solution. Omar Santos, a Cisco Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT) technical leader and author of numerous books including the CCNA Security 210-260 Official Cert Guide, details the importance of NetFlow and demonstrates how it can be used by large enterprises and small-to-medium-sized businesses to meet critical network challenges. This book also examines NetFlow’s potential as a powerful network security tool. Network Security with NetFlow and IPFIX explores everything you need to know to fully understand and implement the Cisco Cyber Threat Defense Solution. It also provides detailed configuration and troubleshooting guidance, sample configurations with depth analysis of design scenarios in every chapter, and detailed case studies with real-life scenarios.

A detailed and complete guide to exporting, collecting, analyzing, and understanding network flows to make managing networks easier. Network flow analysis is the art of studying the traffic on a computer network. Understanding the ways to export flow and collect and analyze data separates good network administrators from great ones. The detailed instructions in Network Flow Analysis teach the busy network administrator how to build every component of a flow-based network awareness system and how network analysis and auditing can help address problems and improve network reliability. Readers learn what flow is, how flows are used in network management, and how to use a flow analysis system. Real-world examples illustrate how to best apply the appropriate tools and how to analyze data to solve real problems. Lucas compares existing popular tools for network management, explaining why they don't address common real-world issues and demonstrates how, once a network administrator understands the underlying process and techniques of flow management, building a flow management system from freely-available components is not only possible but actually a better choice than much more expensive systems.

Applied Network Security Monitoring is the essential guide to becoming an NSM analyst from the ground up. This book takes a fundamental approach to NSM, complete with dozens of real-world examples that teach you the key concepts of NSM. Network security monitoring is based on the principle that prevention eventually fails. In the current threat landscape, no matter how much you try, motivated attackers will eventually find their way into your network. At that point, it is your ability to detect and respond to that intrusion that can be the difference between a small incident and a major disaster. The book follows the three stages of the NSM cycle: collection, detection, and analysis. As you progress through each section, you will have access to insights from seasoned NSM professionals while being introduced to relevant, practical scenarios complete with sample data. If you've never performed NSM analysis, Applied Network Security Monitoring will give you an adequate grasp on the core concepts needed to become an effective analyst. If you are already a practicing analyst, this book will allow you to grow your analytic technique to make you more effective at your job. Discusses the proper methods for data collection, and teaches you how to become a skilled NSM analyst Provides thorough hands-on coverage of Snort, Suricata, Bro-IDS, SiLK, and Argus Loaded with practical examples containing real PCAP files you can replay, and uses Security Onion for all its lab examples Companion website includes up-to-date blogs from the authors about the latest developments in NSM

“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 Assessing the strengths and limitations of mainstream monitoring tools and IDS technologies Using Attack Graphs to map paths of network vulnerability and becoming more proactive about preventing intrusions Analyzing network behavior to immediately detect polymorphic worms, zero-day exploits, and botnet DoS attacks Understanding the theory, advantages, and disadvantages of the latest Web Application Firewalls Implementing IDS/IPS systems that protect wireless data traffic Enhancing your intrusion detection efforts by converging with physical security defenses Identifying attackers’ “geographical fingerprints” and using that information to respond more effectively Visualizing data traffic to identify suspicious patterns more quickly Revisiting intrusion detection ROI in light of new threats, compliance risks, and technical alternatives Includes contributions from these leading network security experts: Jeff Forristal, a.k.a.
