Active network security (1999)
Most discussions of network security focus on the tools and techniques used to fortify networks: firewalls, biometrics, access controls, encryption. This paper presents an outline of tools that assist an administrator in verifying and maintaining the security of a networked system - Active Security tools. It discusses why there is a need for such tools and how security mechanisms are attacked. The report also describes the main tools available in this field, with particular emphasis on Intrusion Detection tools - how they work, what is available, and how they are changing. Finally, it demonstrates some of the concepts in a practical firewall network simulation.
