Site Offer For centuries, military organizations have relied on scouts to gather intelligence about the enemy. In the field of information security, few scouts have ever existed. Very few organizations today know who their enemies are, how they might attack, when they might attack, and, perhaps most important, why they attack. The Honeynet Project is changing this.

In a completely revised edition of the one-of-a-kind "intelligence report" - Know Your Enemy, will provide you with an unrivalled report on those who use the Internet for destructive purposes. It provides an in-depth guide to honeynets--high-interaction honeypots designed to capture extensive information on exactly how your enemies operate so you can protect your systems from them.

Inside, you'll find extensive information on:

  • How to plan, build, and maintain first- and second-generation, virtual, and distributed honeynets.
  • How to capture and analyze data through a honeynet, including the latest on reverse engineering and forensics for Windows, UNIX, and networks.
  • Understanding the enemy, including real examples of incidents and compromised systems, types of attacks, and profiling.

This week, The Register bookstore is providing you with Know Your Enemy's incredible wealth of information for just £26.59 - a colossal saving of 30 per cent!
