Review:
The preface states, correctly, that there is little information for the forensic investigator on the topic of file system structures and internals that are useful for providing direction on tracing and tracking information on the disk. The author also notes that there are a number of worthwhile texts that address the general topic of investigation. Therefore, the author intends to address the former rather than the latter. At the same time, there is an implication in the initial section that this work is only the merest introduction to the subject of computer forensics. Part one is aimed at providing foundational concepts. Chapter one, in fact, does provide a quick review of the investigation process, and a list of forensic software t...

Book description
From the Foreword by Stephen Northcutt, Director of Training and Certification, The SANS Institute Within a year of the infamous "Intrusion Detection is Dead" report by Gartner, we started seeing Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) products that actually worked in the real world. Security professionals are going to be approaching management for funding in the next year or two to procure intrusion prevention devices, especially Intelligent switches from 3Com (TippingPoint), as well as host-based intrusion prevention solutions like Cisco Security Agent, Platform Logic, Ozone or CrossTec. Both managers and security technologists face a pressing need to get up to speed, and fast, on the commercial and open source intrusion prevention solutions. T...

Review:
The preface states that the audience for the book is comprised of developers (particularly those interested in secure software), security professionals (in places), managers (in places), and academics (there are a couple of chapters that indicate where further research might be useful). McGraw also introduces the major components of the book. His "thee pillars" are not the usual confidentiality, integrity and availability, but risk management, "touchpoints," and knowledge. The touchpoints are code analysis, risk analysis, penetration (vulnerability) testing, security tests, abuse cases, security requirements, and security operations. Part one outlines the basics of software security. Chapter one informs us that problems exist in softw... Rest of this review on the detail page
