The book consists of seven chapters that deal with the following attacks: (i) denial of service; (ii) war dialing; (iii) penetration testing; (iv) protocol tunneling; (v) spanning tree attacks; (vi) man-in-the-middle; and (vii) password replay. These attacks are not mutually exclusive and were chosen because they help illustrate different aspects of network security. The principles on which they rely are unlikely to vanish any time soon, and they allow for the possibility of gaining something of interest to the attacker, from money to high-value data.
This book is intended to provide practical, usable information. However, the world of network security is evolving very rapidly, and the attack that works today may (hopefully) not work tomorrow. It is more important, then, to understand the principles on which the attacks and exploits are based in order to properly plan either a network attack or a network defense.
