The objective of this book is to fill a gap found in most books on security: How security examinations can be conducted via illustrations and virtual simulations. Auditing tools with simple graphical user interfaces (GUIs) and automation are becoming increasingly prevalent, and most claim to be the all-inclusive solution for administrators and security consultants to use for their networks’ security testing. In practice, however, typically a combination of tools, embraced by the Tiger Box analysis/monitoring system, is necessary for accurate, up-to-date assessments. In a nutshell, a Tiger Box is a system designed to provide the necessary tools designed to reveal potential security weak- nesses by discovering, scanning, and in some cases penetrating security vulnerabilities. Covering Windows in addition to Unix- and Linux-flavored (*NIX) dual-boot- configurations, this book explains how to build and operate your own vulnerability analysis system by using exclusively the top-quality and most popular tools available today.
Step by step, the book covers how-to drilldowns for setting up your Tiger Box operating systems, installations, and configurations for some of the most popular auditing software suites. It discusses both common and custom uses, as well as the scanning methods and reporting routines of each. It inspects individual vulnerability scanner results and compares them in an evaluation matrix against a select group of intentional security holes on a target network.
