LINUX FIREWALLS BY MICHAEL RASH PDF

System administrators need to stay ahead of new security vulnerabilities that leave their networks exposed every day. A firewall and an intrusion detection systems IDS are two important weapons in that fight, enabling you to proactively deny access and monitor network traffic for signs of an attack. Linux Firewalls discusses the technical details of the iptables firewall and the Netfilter framework that are built into the Linux kernel, and it explains how they provide strong filtering, Network Address Translation NAT , state tracking, and application layer inspection capabilities that rival many commercial tools. You'll learn how to deploy iptables as an IDS with psad and fwsnort and how to build a strong, passive authentication layer around iptables with fwknop.

System administrators need to stay ahead of new security vulnerabilities that leave their networks exposed every day.

A firewall and an intrusion detection systems IDS are two important weapons in that fight, enabling you to proactively deny access and monitor network traffic for signs of an attack. Linux Firewalls discusses the technical details of the iptables firewall and the Netfilter framework that are built into the Linux kernel, and it explains how they provide strong filtering, Network Address Translation NAT , state tracking, and application layer inspection capabilities that rival many commercial tools.

You'll learn how to deploy iptables as an IDS with psad and fwsnort and how to build a strong, passive authentication layer around iptables with fwknop. Concrete examples illustrate concepts such as firewall log analysis and policies, passive network authentication and authorization, exploit packet traces, Snort ruleset emulation, and more with coverage of these topics:.

Perl and C code snippets offer practical examples that will help you to maximize your deployment of Linux firewalls. If you're responsible for keeping a network secure, you'll find Linux Firewalls invaluable in your attempt to understand attacks and use iptables-along with psad and fwsnort-to detect and even prevent compromises.

Make no mistake, this book is on what it says it's about "Attack Detection and Response with iptables, psad, and fwsnort" it contains very little information about setting up iptables to block unwanted external traffic.

Sure there are whole books on that topic but there is no need for a page book on it, that just seems to be the size computer books have to be in order to get published.

Which means other books on iptables are probably going to about pages of fluff. Incidentally this book actually only spends about the first 35 pages describing that, the remainder is fantastic, useful, well written information about doing the things that make iptables truly useful. In addition to being comprehensive and useful this book happens to be well written, far better than most technical books. If you're thinking about buying a book on Linux firewalls, make it this one, but if you're not already familiar with iptables expect to read the first 35 pages, then a couple online tutorials and then come back to this book.

Who needs a specialist distro or Vyatta? Get this book and you'll be up and running in no time. I thought the content was presented in a logical manner, concise, clear and very informative.

From IPTables novice to expert, there is a lot of good information in this book. If you want to understand the inner-workings of firewall based distros or products like Vyatta - or Brocade, whatever they call themselves these days - this is a good start. I certainly recommend this book to anyone looking to get into the security field as well. A must have! There are not so many books on Linux Firewalls!

There are lots of great examples in this book. I like the logging coverage. I've tuned my logging to make it easy to find unauthorized attempts. Information can be found Online, but the book is an easy reference, and brings the Linux firewalls all together as a guide to the various firewalls.

Interview with Michael Rash, Security Architect and Author of “Linux Firewalls”

Michael Rash is a security architect with Enterasys Networks, where he develops the Dragon intrusion and prevention system. He is a frequent contributor to open source projects and the creator of psad, fwknop, and fwsnort. Rash is an expert on firewalls, intrusion detection systems, passive OS fingerprinting, and the Snort rules language. How did you gain interest in computer security? In I started working for Digex, Inc. My initial role as a support technician had little to do with computer security, but less than a year later I moved into a group that was tasked with maintaining a set of nearly Check Point firewalls and a few Cisco NetRanger systems for network IDS.
