Overview and Goals Wireless communication technologies are undergoing rapid advancements. The past few years have experienced a steep growth in research in the area of wireless ad hoc networks. The attractiveness of ad hoc networks, in general, is attributed to their characteristics/features such as ability for infrastructure-less setup, minimal or no reliance on network planning and the ability of the nodes to self-organize and self-configure without the involvement of a centralized n- work manager, router, access point or a switch. These features help to set up a network fast in situations where there is no existing network setup or in times when setting up a fixed infrastructure network is considered infeasible, for example, in times of emergency or during relief operations. Even though ad hoc networks have emerged to be attractive and they hold great promises for our future, there are several challenges that need to be addressed. Some of the well-known challenges are attributed to issues relating to scalability, quality-of-service, energy efficiency and security.

Overview and Goals Wireless communication technologies are undergoing rapid advancements. The last few years have experienced a steep growth in research in the area of wireless sensor networks (WSNs). In WSNs, communication takes place with the help of spatially distributedautonomoussensornodesequippedtosensespeci?cinformation. WSNs, especially the ones that have gained much popularity in the recent years, are, ty- cally, ad hoc in nature and they inherit many characteristics/features of wireless ad hoc networks such as the ability for infrastructure-less setup, minimal or no reliance on network planning, and the ability of the nodes to self-organize and self-con?gure without the involvement of a centralized network manager, router, access point, or a switch. These features help to set up WSNs fast in situations where there is no existing network setup or in times when setting up a ?xed infrastructure network is considered infeasible, for example, in times of emergency or during relief - erations. WSNs ?nd a variety of applications in both the military and the civilian population worldwide such as in cases of enemy intrusion in the battle?eld, object tracking, habitat monitoring, patient monitoring, ?re detection, and so on. Even though sensor networks have emerged to be attractive and they hold great promises for our future, there are several challenges that need to be addressed. Some of the well-known challenges are attributed to issues relating to coverage and deployment, scalability, quality-of-service, size, computational power, energy ef?ciency, and security.

Sie können noch so viel in Hardware, Software und Abwehrmechanismen investieren, absolute Sicherheit für Ihre IT-Infrastruktur wird es nicht geben. Wenn Hacker sich wirklich anstrengen, werden sie auch in Ihr System gelangen. Sollte das geschehen, müssen Sie sowohl technisch als auch organisatorisch so aufgestellt sein, dass Sie die Gegenwart eines Hackers erkennen und darauf reagieren können. Sie müssen in der Lage sein, einen Zwischenfall zu deklarieren und die Angreifer aus Ihrem Netzwerk zu vertreiben, bevor sie erheblichen Schaden anrichten. Das ist Network Security Monitoring (NSM). Lernen Sie von dem leitenden Sicherheitsanalytiker Sanders die Feinheiten des Network Security Monitoring kennen. Konzepte verstehen und Network Security Monitoring mit Open-Source-Tools durchführen: Lernen Sie die drei NSM-Phasen kennen, um diese in der Praxis anzuwenden. Die praktische Umsetzung der NSM erfolgt mit vielen Open-Source-Werkzeugen wie z. B. Bro, Daemonlogger, Dumpcap, Justniffer, Honeyd, Httpry, Netsniff-NG, Sguil, SiLK, Snorby Snort, Squert, Suricata, TShark und Wireshark. Anhand von ausführlichen Beispielen lernen Sie, die Tools effizient in Ihrem Netzwerk einzusetzen.

Overview and Goals Wireless communication technologies are undergoing rapid advancements. The last few years have experienced a steep growth in research in the area of wireless mesh networks (WMNs). The attractiveness of WMNs, in general, is attributed to their characteristics such as the ability to dynamically self-organize and self-con?gure, coupled with the ability to maintain mesh connectivity leading, in effect, to low set-up/installation costs, simpler maintenance tasks, and service coverage with high reliability and fault-tolerance. WMNs also support their integration with existing wireless networks such as cellular networks, WLANs, wireless-?delity (Wi-Fi), and worldwide interoperability of microwave access (WiMAX). WMNs have found u- ful applications in a broad range of domains such as broadband home networking, commercial/business networking, and community networking – particularly attr- tive in offering broadband wireless access with low initial installation and set-up costs. Even though WMNs have emerged to be attractive and they hold great promises for our future, there are several challenges that need to be addressed. Some of the wellknownchallenges areattributedtoissuesrelatingtoscalability(signi?cantdrop in throughput with the increase in the number of nodes), multicasting, offering qu- ity of service guarantees, energy ef?ciency, and security. This handbook attempts to provide a comprehensive guide on fundamental key topics coupled with new ideas and results in the areas of WMNs. The book has been prepared keeping in mind that it needs to prove itself to be a valuable resource dealing with both the important core and the specialized issues in WMNs.

This book highlights the importance of security in the design, development and deployment of systems based on Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), together referred to as SDNFV. Presenting a comprehensive guide to the application of security mechanisms in the context of SDNFV, the content spans fundamental theory, practical solutions, and potential applications in future networks. Topics and features: introduces the key security challenges of SDN, NFV and Cloud Computing, providing a detailed tutorial on NFV security; discusses the issue of trust in SDN/NFV environments, covering roots of trust services, and proposing a technique to evaluate trust by exploiting remote attestation; reviews a range of specific SDNFV security solutions, including a DDoS detection and remediation framework, and a security policy transition framework for SDN; describes the implementation of a virtual home gateway, and a project that combines dynamic security monitoring with big-data analytics to detect network-wide threats; examines the security implications of SDNFV in evolving and future networks, from network-based threats to Industry 4.0 machines, to the security requirements for 5G; investigates security in the Observe, Orient, Decide and Act (OODA) paradigm, and proposes a monitoring solution for a Named Data Networking (NDN) architecture; includes review questions in each chapter, to test the reader’s understanding of each of the key concepts described. This informative and practical volume is an essential resource for researchers interested in the potential of SDNFV systems to address a broad range of network security challenges. The work will also be of great benefit to practitioners wishing to design secure next-generation communication networks, or to develop new security-related mechanisms for SDNFV systems.

Society demands a world that is truly safe and secure for all children to be born and raised into! All pedophiles are lobotomized the first time they offend! All runaway parents are found through national registries and forced to support their abandoned children! All females are sterilized at the age of eight years old! The Catholic Church endorses the national policy of sterilization! All females are tagged on their skin with their medical records as proof of sterilization. Any female adult found in noncompliance is hunted down and physically forced to comply! Any and all supporters of non- compliance are harshly dealt with. Reversal of sterilization is only possible after a lengthy peer review to determine applicants worth eligibility to physically have, care and provide for a child. Constant monitoring is part of their acceptance for the procedure. Every new request for pregnancy requires a new review for eligibility, having passed once does not automatically ensure future allowed pregnancies. All this and more ensures a better society where the needs and rights of a child are placed before those of any adult.
