TERENA Networking Conference 2000    

Session 3A

Practical Security
Chair: Rob Blokzijl, NIKHEF, The Netherlands

This is the all meat, no fat session about network security practice for network and system administrators. The first talk will describe how NTOP - a widely used freeware network monitor - can be applied to intrusion detection and security scanning. Next, a review of the major attacks at the network layer is presented, along with available countermeasures. Finally, the security problems posed by the DNS are examined, along with the proposed standard solution given by the DNSSEC standard.
