Our world is increasingly driven by sophisticated networks of advanced computing technology, and the basic operation of everyday society is becoming increasingly vulnerable to those networks’ shortcomings. The implementation and upkeep of a strong network defense is a substantial challenge, beset not only by economic disincentives, but also by an inherent logistical bias that grants advantage to attackers.

Network Security Attacks and Countermeasures discusses the security and optimization of computer networks for use in a variety of disciplines and fields. Touching on such matters as mobile and VPN security, IP spoofing, and intrusion detection, this edited collection emboldens the efforts of researchers, academics, and network administrators working in both the public and private sectors.

This edited compilation includes chapters covering topics such as attacks and countermeasures, mobile wireless networking, intrusion detection systems, next-generation firewalls, and more.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • DDoS Attacks
  • Intrusion Detection and Prevention
  • Network Administration
  • RSA Vulnerabilities
  • Threat Classification
  • Virtual Private Networks
  • VPN Security
  • Wireless Sensor Networks

Reviews and Testimonials

Computer and information scientists seek to increase evolutionary computation awareness in network security by providing a clear direction for monitoring, analyzing, and detecting network attacks. Among their topics are security issues in mobile wireless networks, a classification of network attacks and countermeasures of different attacks, cluster-based countermeasures for distributed denial of service attacks, countering RSA vulnerabilities and replacing it with an elliptic curve cryptographic scheme for key generation, and changing dynamics of network security involving hacking/cracking with next-generation firewalls.
