Research on Internet security over the past few decades has focused mainly on information assurance, issues of data confidentiality and integrity as explored through cryptograph algorithms, digital signature, authentication code, etc. Unlike other books on network information security, Network Infrastructure Security addresses the emerging concern with better detecting and preventing routers and other network devices from being attacked or compromised.
Network Infrastructure Security bridges the gap between the study of the traffic flow of networks and the study of the actual network configuration. This book makes effective use of examples and figures to illustrate network infrastructure attacks from a theoretical point of view. The book includes conceptual examples that show how network attacks can be run, along with appropriate countermeasures and solutions.
Provides an overview of network infrastructure security, in a market with few books focusing specifically on the protection of network infrastructure, rather than data integrity
Includes numerous visually accessible expamples of how attacks are implemented in a testing network
Covers such topics as switching security, routing security, and address configuration and naming
