Chapter 5. Implementing Security

This chapter is dedicated to security solutions, as well as their installation and configuration. It will show you how to protect the lab environment from external attacks and unauthorized access, and how improve the lab complexity to practice advanced penetration testing and hacking techniques at the same time. We are going to divide security solutions and measures into two main groups: host-based (protecting hosts they are installed on) and network-based (protecting the whole lab network). Additionally, we want to have a closer look at a security information and event management solution that can be used to work together with the security mechanisms in order to identify network attacks and constantly monitor ...
