OpenBSD is widely used as the basis for critical DNS servers, routers, firewalls, and more. With this book, you'll learn the intricacies of the platform, the technical details behind certain design decisions, and best practices. This edition has been updated for OpenBSD 5.3, including new coverage of OpenBSD's boot system, security features like W^X and ProPolice, and advanced networking techniques. You'll also learn how to: manage network traffic with VLANs, trunks, IPv6, and the PF packet filter; make software management quick and effective using the ports and packages system; give users only the access they need with groups, sudo, and chroots; configure OpenBSD's secure implementations of SNMP, DHCP, NTP, hardware sensors, and more; and customize the installation and upgrade processes for your network and hardware, or build a custom OpenBSD release.

Honeypots have demonstrated immense value in Internet security, but physical honeypot deployment can be prohibitively complex, time-consuming, and expensive. Now, there’s a breakthrough solution. Virtual honeypots share many attributes of traditional honeypots, but you can run thousands of them on a single system-making them easier and cheaper to build, deploy, and maintain. In this hands-on, highly accessible book, two leading honeypot pioneers systematically introduce virtual honeypot technology. One step at a time, you’ll learn exactly how to implement, configure, use, and maintain virtual honeypots in your own environment, even if you’ve never deployed a honeypot before. You’ll learn through examples, including Honeyd, the acclaimed virtual honeypot created by coauthor Niels Provos. The authors also present multiple real-world applications for virtual honeypots, including network decoy, worm detection, spam prevention, and network simulation. After reading this book, you will be able to Compare high-interaction honeypots that provide real systems and services and the low-interaction honeypots that emulate them Install and configure Honeyd to simulate multiple operating systems, services, and network environments Use virtual honeypots to capture worms, bots, and other malware Create high-performance "hybrid" honeypots that draw on technologies from both low- and high-interaction honeypots Implement client honeypots that actively seek out dangerous Internet locations Understand how attackers identify and circumvent honeypots Analyze the botnets your honeypot identifies, and the malware it captures Preview the future evolution of both virtual and physical honeypots

Unix-like operating systems have a primitive access control system. The root account can do anything. Other users are peasants with only minimal system access. This worked fine in UNIX's youth, but today, system administration responsibilities are spread among many people and applications. Each person needs a tiny slice of root's power. Sudo lets you divide root's monolithic power between the people who need it, with accountability and auditability. Sudo Mastery will teach you to: * design a sudo policy rather than slap rules together * simplify policies with lists and aliases * use non-Unix information sources in policies * configure alternate sudo policies * manage shell environments * verify system integrity and perform intrusion detection * have a common sudo policy across your server farm * manage sudo policies via LDAP * log and debug sudo * log and replay full sudo sessions * use authentication systems other than passwords While many people use sudo, most use only a small part of it's features. Chances are, you're doing it wrong. Master sudo with Sudo Mastery.

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.
