Overview

The Hands-On Information Security Lab Manual allows users to apply the basics of their introductory security knowledge in a hands-on environment with detailed exercises using Windows 2000, XP and Linux. This non-certification based lab manual includes coverage of scanning, OS vulnerability analysis and resolution firewalls, security maintenance, forensics, and more. A full version of the software needed to complete these projects is included on a CD with every text, so instructors can effortlessly set up and run labs to correspond with their classes. The Hands-On Information Security Lab Manual is a suitable resource for introductory, technical and managerial courses, and is a perfect supplement to the Principles of Information Security and Management of Information Security texts.
