Attacking Network Protocols (No Starch Press)
Attacking Network Protocols (No Starch Press)
Tuesday, 02 January 2018

Take a deep dive into network protocol security with a specialist bug ­hunter. James Forshaw is a computer security researcher at Google Project Zero and the creator of the network protocol analysis tool Canape. His discovery of complex design issues in Microsoft Windows earned him the top bug bounty of $100,000 and placed him as the #1 researcher on the published list from Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC). This comprehensive guide looks at networking from an attacker’s perspective to help you discover, exploit, and ultimately ­protect vulnerabilities.

<ASIN:1593277504>

The book starts with a rundown of networking basics and protocol traffic capture before moving on to static and dynamic protocol analysis, common protocol structures, cryptography, and protocol security. Forshaw then turns his attention to how to find and exploit vulnerabilities, with an overview of common bug classes, fuzzing, debugging, and exhaustion attacks.
