    Services from a Security POV

    Security (Expert): Services from a SecurityPoint of View
    Posted by Jerom Wednesday, July 30, 2003 - 09:55 PM CEST

    A network intruder will look for security weaknesses at every point in your network architecture. If you have adequately locked down the Physical, Data Link, Network, and Transport layers of your network, the wily hacker will simply move up to those protocols and services your network does expose to the Internet. These application-specific protocols are actually much easier to exploit, so many hackers start there and drop down to the Network or Transport level when they need to circumvent a protocol's security mechanisms. In this article, we'll go over each of the most commonly used Internet services, briefly examining each for their weaknesses and abuse potential. First, however, we'll discuss sockets and services ingeneral, identifying typical service vulnerabilities so you can identify potential problems when you need to install services on your own network.

    Nice article....Good reading
    [gloworange]And then it happened... a door opened to a world... rushing through the phone line like heroin through an addict\'s veins, an electronic pulse is sent out, a refuge from the day-to-day incompetencies is sought... a board is found. \"This is it... this is where I belong...\" I know everyone here... even if I\'ve never met them, never talked to them, may never hear from them again... I know you all...[/gloworange]
