âThis is a must-have work for anybody in information security, digital forensics, or involved with incident handling. As we move away from traditional disk-based analysis into the interconnectivity of the cloud, Sherri and Jonathan have created a framework and roadmap that will act as a seminal work in this developing field.â

On the Internet, every action leaves a markâin routers, firewalls, web proxies, and within network traffic itself. When a hacker breaks into a bank, or an insider smuggles secrets to a competitor, evidence of the crime is always left behind.
Learn to recognize hackersâ tracks and uncover network-based evidence in Network Forensics: Tracking Hackers through Cyberspace. Carve suspicious email attachments from packet captures. Use flow records to track an intruder as he pivots through the network. Analyze a real-world wireless encryption-cracking attack (and then crack the key yourself). Reconstruct a suspectâs web surfing historyâand cached web pages, tooâfrom a web proxy. Uncover DNS-tunneled traffic. Dissect the Operation Aurora exploit, caught on the wire.
Throughout the text, step-by-step case studies guide you through the analysis of network-based evidence. You can download the evidence files from the authorsâ web site (lmgsecurity.com), and follow along to gain hands-on experience.
Hackers leave footprints all across the Internet. Can you find their tracks and solve the case? Pick up Network Forensics and find out.
