Many colleges and universities today offer courses on network security. Unfortunately, it is difficult to find a comprehensive single source that thoroughly covers the topic of securing networks. Introduction to Network Security is designed to fill this void by covering network protocols and methodologies from a security-oriented viewpoint. The book explores the International Standards Organization?s Open System Interconnect (ISO OSI) network stack and discusses common security weaknesses, vulnerabilities, attack methods, and mitigation approaches. With thousands of network protocols in existence, the book focuses mainly on the most common protocols and presents general issues that apply to multiple protocols. Introduction to Network Security is not intended as a detailed review of specific protocols or applications, although specific protocols and applications are used as examples. Instead, this book provides a comprehensive list of security issues related to general networking design and development. For example, how and when networking protocols use cryptography, but do not provide an in-depth discussion of cryptographic algorithms. This invaluable text is ideal for any college-level course on network security.Instead, this book provides a comprehensive list of security issues related to general networking design and development.
