Full review: [Article]-LAN Switch Security: What Hackers Know About Your Switches

Image


Review by Chris Gates, CISSP, GCIH, C|EH, CPTS

In addition to his regular column, Chris Gates does some great work on EH-Net including participating in our growing forums as well as doing various book reviews. He is back with a quick look at a recently released security title by Cisco Press that Chris describes as, "Should be required reading for Pentesters.” So let's begin his review...

LAN Switch Security: What Hackers Know About Your Switches provides enough information to leverage the most common layer 2 attacks a pentester would be interested in; MAC Flooding, VLAN Hopping, DTP attacks, and CDP Snarfing along with plenty of switching protocol details for the Cisco ninja wannabe.

Free Sample Chapter Available - "Attacking the Spanning Tree Protocol"


Check out his blog:

Let us know what you think of the review, the book or suggest other titles you'd like for us to review.
