Silence on the Wire: A Field Guide to Passive Reconnaissance and Indirect Attacks Michal Zalewski
Eye-Opening Narrative Sheds New Light on the Threats and Risks of Everyday ComputingAuthor Michal Zalewski has long been known and respected in the hacking and security communities for his intelligence, curiosity, and creativity. In Silence on the Wire: A Field Guide to Passive Reconnaissance and Indirect Attacks, Zalewski shares his expertise and experience to explain how computers and networks work, how information is processed and delivered, and what security threats lurk in the shadows. No humdrum technical white paper or how-to manual for protecting one’s network, this book is truly unlike anything else out there. It’s a fascinating narrative that explores a variety of unique, uncommon, and often quite elegant security challenges that defy classification and eschew the traditional attacker-victim model.
Rather than approaching computer security as a separate discipline, Silence on the Wire delves into the nuts and bolts of modern-day computing so that readers will ponder network design and their own computing activities from a new perspective. Where other books merely chronicle security exploits, Zalewski provides explanations.
This book will be riveting reading for security professionals and students, as well as technophiles interested in learning about how computer security fits into the big picture and high-level hackers seeking to broaden their understanding of their craft.
Michal Zalewski is a security researcher who has worked on topics ranging from hardware and OS design principles to networking. He has published research on many security topics and has worked for the past eight years in the InfoSec field for a number of reputable companies, including two major telecommunications firms.
