Despite the need for network security, no book until now has covered so many network security tools in one volume as a go- to reference for administrators and engineers. "Security Power Tools" is a goldmine of security information from some of the leading engineers and practitioners in the world, a compendium of the most popular security tools. This book is designed to be browsed and covers both black hat techniques and white hat defense. Experts who have spent a virtual lifetime with these tools demonstrate how to use them and how to tweak them.
