Product description


A series of explorations that take our ‘professional paranoid’ mentality and examine some issues we seldom consider. -- Internet Review Project, July 2005

A very good introduction to the intricacies of certain security problems and a very extensive guide to passive reconnaissance. -- Help Net Security, June 24, 2005

An innovative twist on otherwise boring aspects of network security… hours of enjoyable reading for any self-proclaimed security enthusiast. -- TechIMO, June 3, 2005 http://www.techimo.com/articles/i249.html

Do-it-yourself ethos pervades the book... this broad mindset can uncover major security flaws — but not where you’d think. -- Enterprise Systems, June 22, 2005 http://www.esj.com/Security/article.aspx?EditorialsID=1426

I was hooked... I give this book a 7 out of 10 for an interesting read. -- Edmonton Linux User Group, June 2005

If you are a 'hacker' type in the old sense of the word... you will probably find this book intriguing. -- ;login:, October 2005

Not only thinking outside the box, but twisting the box, shaking it, and finding a way to exploit it. -- WatchGuard Wire, June 13, 2005 http://www.watchguard.com/RSS/showarticle.aspx?pack=RSS.SotW

The discovery of a technical book in this style is cool. -- IEEE Cipher, May 14, 2005 http://www.ieee-security.org/Cipher/BookReviews/2005/zalewski_by_bruen.html

This follows the story of a piece of information from the first key-press to the other end of the wire. -- Book News UK, May 17, 2005 http://www.booknews.co.uk/

What makes it a joy to read are the author's appealing humility, sense of humor and vast knowledge. -- Open.ITWorld.com, June 1, 2005 http://open.itworld.com/5040/nls_unixsilencewire050602/page_1.html
