Linux Advisory Watch - January 28, 2005

Author: Benjamin D. Thomas

This week, articles were released for libtiff, ethereal, xpdf, squid, xtrlock, sword, unarj, enscript, zhcon, vdr, xine-lib, libpam-radius,
kdebase, f2c, cups, alsa-lib, grep, kernel-utils, hal, im-sdk, gphoto, apr, tetex, koffice, kdegraphics, kdelibs, gaim, procps, mailman,
mysql, awstats, less, kernel, and xpdf. The distributors include Conectiva, Debian, Fedora, Gentoo, Mandrake, Red Hat, SuSE, and TurboLinux.The Tao of Network Security Monitoring: Beyond Intrusion Detection

To be honest, this was one of the best books that I've read on network security.
Others books often dive so deeply into technical discussions, they fail to provide
any relevance to network engineers/administrators working in a corporate environment.
Budgets, deadlines, and flexibility are issues that we must all address. The
Tao of Network Security Monitoring is presented in such a way that all of these
are still relevant. One of the greatest virtues of this book is that is offers
real-life technical examples, while backing them up with relevant case studies.
Network security engineers, system administrations, and security management
will find value in this book. It is a must-read for anyone interested in getting
into the field, but would still be useful as a reference for the experienced
expert.

The book is written in an easy to follow manner and is filled with diagrams,
tables, screen shots, and relevant examples. Richard Bejtlich attempts to help
network engineers go beyond what is offered by today's intrusion detection systems.
He provides a basis for developing an entire network security monitoring architecture,
which gives administrators a much clearer view of network activity. I highly
recommend this book to anyone involved in network security on a day-to-day basis.

The Tao of Network Security Monitoring is written in 6 parts with 18 chapters
and several appendixes. Part I gives an introduction to network security monitoring,
part II introduces available network security tools with examples of usage as
well as how the tool can be acquired. Part III and IV outline the network security
monitoring process through best practices and case studies while explaining
role of those individuals involved. Part V describes what tools and tactics
attackers use to evade network security monitoring systems. Part VI, the appendixes,
offer a protocol header reference, an intellectual history of network security
monitoring, and an introduction to protocol anomaly detection.

Encrypting
Shell Scripts
- Do you have scripts that contain sensitive information
like passwords and you pretty much depend on file permissions to keep it secure?
If so, then that type of security is good provided you keep your system secure
and some user doesn't have a "ps -ef" loop running in an attempt to capture
that sensitive info (though some applications mask passwords in "ps" output).

A 2005
Linux Security Resolution
- Year 2000, the coming of the new millennium,
brought us great joy and celebration, but also brought great fear. Some believed
it would result in full-scale computer meltdown, leaving Earth as a nuclear
wasteland. Others predicted minor glitches leading only to inconvenience. The
following years (2001-2004) have been tainted with the threat of terrorism worldwide.

State
of Linux Security 2004
- In 2004, security continued to be a major
concern. The beginning of the year was plagued with several kernel flaws and
Linux vendor advisories continue to be released at an ever-increasing rate.
This year, we have seen the reports touting Window's security superiority, only
to be debunked by other security experts immediately after release. Also, Guardian
Digital launched the new LinuxSecurity.com, users continue to be targeted by
automated attacks, and the need for security awareness and education continues
to rise.
