Network forensics is an evolution of typical digital forensics, in which evidence is gathered from network traffic in near real time. This book will help security and forensics professionals as well as network administrators build a solid foundation of processes and controls to identify incidents and gather evidence from the network. Forensic scientists and investigators are some of the fastest growing jobs in the United States with over 70,000 individuals employed in 2008. Specifically in the area of cybercrime and digital forensics, the federal government is conducting a talent search for 10,000 qualified specialists. Almost every technology company has developed or is developing a cloud computing strategy. To cut costs, many companies are moving toward network-based applications like SalesForce.com, PeopleSoft, and HR Direct. Every day, we are moving companies’ proprietary data into a cloud, which can be hosted anywhere in the world. These companies need to understand how to identify where their data is going and what they are sending. Key network forensics skills and tools are discussed-for example, capturing network traffic, using Snort for network-based forensics, using NetWitness Investigator for network traffic analysis, and deciphering TCP/IP. The current and future states of network forensics analysis tools are addressed. The admissibility of network-based traffic is covered as well as the typical life cycle of a network forensics investigation.

An up-to-date, comprehensive, practical, guide to network forensics for information security professionals at all levels of experience * *Presents a proven, start-to-finish methodology for managing any network forensics investigation. *Enables professionals to uncover powerful forensic evidence from routers, firewalls, IDS, web proxies, and many other network devices. *Based on the world's first comprehensive Network Forensics training course, offered by the SANS Institute - a course that now sells out months in advance. Network forensics is transforming the way investigators examine computer crime: they have discovered that the network holds far more evidence than could ever be retrieved from a local hard drive. Network forensic skills are in especially short supply, and professionals are flocking to the scarce resources available for mastering these skills. This is a comprehensive, practical, and up to- date book on the subject. Building on their pioneering SANS Institute course, top network forensics experts Jonathan Ham and Sherri Davidoff take readers through an exciting, entertaining, and technically rigorous journey through the skills and principles of successful network investigation. One step at a time, they demonstrate how to recover usable forensic evidence from firewalls, web proxies, IDS, routers, wireless access points, and even raw packet captures. Coverage includes: * *Understanding the unique challenges associated with network investigation. *The state-of-the-art OSCAR Network Forensics Investigative Methodology. *Acquiring evidence passively, actively, and interactively. *Aggregating, correlating, and analyzing event logs. *Investigating compromised encryption and SSL interception Every section contains a real-world case study, and the book culminates with a 'Capstone' case study walking through an entire investigation from start to finish, and challenging readers to solve the crime themselves.

The information systems security (InfoSec) profession remains one of the fastest growing professions in the world today. With the advent of the Internet and its use as a method of conducting business, even more emphasis is being placed on InfoSec. However, there is an expanded field of threats that must be addressed by today's InfoSec and information assurance (IA) professionals. Operating within a global business environment with elements of a virtual workforce can create problems not experienced in the past. How do you assess the risk to the organization when information can be accessed, remotely, by employees in the field or while they are traveling internationally? How do you assess the risk to employees who are not working on company premises and are often thousands of miles from the office? How do you assess the risk to your organization and its assets when you have offices or facilities in a nation whose government may be supporting the theft of the corporate "crown jewels" in order to assist their own nationally owned or supported corporations? If your risk assessment and management program is to be effective, then these issues must be assessed. Personnel involved in the risk assessment and management process face a much more complex environment today than they have ever encountered before. This book covers more than just the fundamental elements that make up a good risk program. It provides an integrated "how to" approach to implementing a corporate program, complete with tested methods and processes; flowcharts; and checklists that can be used by the reader and immediately implemented into a computer and overall corporate security program. The challenges are many and this book will help professionals in meeting their challenges as we progress through the 21st Century. *Presents material in an engaging, easy-to-follow manner that will appeal to both advanced INFOSEC career professionals and network administrators entering the information security profession *Addresses the needs of both the individuals who are new to the subject as well as of experienced professionals *Provides insight into the factors that need to be considered & fully explains the numerous methods, processes & procedures of risk management

Information security is a critical consideration for any organization that depends on info. systems and computer networks to carry out its mission or business. It is especially important for gov¿t. agencies, where maintaining the public's trust is essential. The need for a vigilant approach to info. security has been demonstrated by the pervasive and sustained computerbased (cyber) attacks againimpactst the U.S. and others that continue to pose a potentially devastating to systems and the operations and critical infrastructures that they support. This report describes: (1) cyber threats to fed. info. systems and cyberbased critical infrastructures; and (2) control deficiencies that make these systems and infrastructures vulnerable to those threats.

Traditional intrusion detection and logfile analysis are no longer enough to protect today’s complex networks. In the updated second edition of this practical guide, security researcher Michael Collins shows InfoSec personnel the latest techniques and tools for collecting and analyzing network traffic datasets. You’ll understand how your network is used, and what actions are necessary to harden and defend the systems within it. In three sections, this book examines the process of collecting and organizing data, various tools for analysis, and several different analytic scenarios and techniques. New chapters focus on active monitoring and traffic manipulation, insider threat detection, data mining, regression and machine learning, and other topics. You’ll learn how to: Use sensors to collect network, service, host, and active domain data Work with the SiLK toolset, Python, and other tools and techniques for manipulating data you collect Detect unusual phenomena through exploratory data analysis (EDA), using visualization and mathematical techniques Analyze text data, traffic behavior, and communications mistakes Identify significant structures in your network with graph analysis Examine insider threat data and acquire threat intelligence Map your network and identify significant hosts within it Work with operations to develop defenses and analysis techniques
