Series: Pearson open source software development series: Publisher: Boston : Addison-Wesley, ©2018Description: xxi, 242 pages : illustrations ; 23 cm.Content type: text | still image Media type: unmediated Carrier type: volumeISBN: 9780134173269.Other title: Server security from TLS to TOR.Subject(s): Linux | Linux | Computer security | Computer networks -- Security measures | Computer networks -- Security measures | Computer securityGenre/Form: Print books.Summary: "In an age of mass surveillance, when advanced cyberwarfare weapons rapidly migrate into every hacker's toolkit, you can't rely on outdated security methods - especially if you're responsible for Internet-facing services. In Linux Hardening in Hostile Networks, Kyle Rankin helps you to implement modern safeguards that provide maximum impact with minimum effort and to strip away old techniques that are no longer worth your time. Rankin provides clear, concise guidance on modern workstation, server, and network hardening, and explains how to harden specific services, such as web servers, email, DNS, and databases. Along the way, he demystifies technologies once viewed as too complex or mysterious, but now essential to mainstream Linux security. He also includes a full chapter on effective incident response. Each chapter begins with techniques any sysadmin can use quickly to protect against entry-level hackers and presents intermediate and advanced techniques to safeguard against sophisticated and knowledgeable attackers, perhaps even state actors. Throughout, you learn what each technique does, how it works, what it does and doesn't protect against, and whether it would be useful in your environment."--Provided by publisher.
