Analysis Schemes by Rebecca Bace — With analysis, you're faced with the core issue of intrusion detection: What is going on here, and should I be concerned about it? Bace offers definition, goals, and variables of analysis.

PKI-Enabled Services by Carlisle Adams and Steve Lloyd — Learn about PKI-enabled services such as notarization, non-repudiation, and privilege management, as well as the mechanisms for and operational considerations behind creating PKI-enabled services.

Technical Foundations of Residential Broadband by George Abe — Successful deployment of Residential Broadband requires familiarity with a wide variety of technical subjects, including fiber optics, IP multicast, and MPEG compression. Author George Abe summarizes these technologies and others before launching into more in-depth coverage in later chapters.

Technical Issues — Many issues stand in the way of optimizing the performance of intrusion detection; this chapter discusses them, along with strategies for rectifying them.

Understanding the Real-World Challenge — Introduces the root causes of security vulnerabilities and takes you step by step through a typical hacker attack.

Mitnick Attack — Get an introduction to intrusion detection by looking at one of the most famous intrusion cases that ever occurred, Kevin Mitnick's attack on Tsutomu Shimomura's system. Includes TCP/IP review and a discussion of SYN flooding.

Technical Issues — Take a look at some of the tradeoffs, capabilities, and issues facing intrusion detection system users and builders, including Events of Interest (EOI) and sensor placement.

Network-Based Intrusion Detection Solutions — Presents a mix of research, U.S. government, commercial, and Open Source Software systems for intrusion detection, with emphasis on characteristics you should look for in selecting a system

Technical Foundations of Residential Broadband — Successful deployment of Residential Broadband requires familiarity with a wide variety of technical subjects, including fiber optics, IP multicast, and MPEG compression. Author George Abe summarizes these technologies and others before launching into more in-depth coverage in later chapters.

xDSL Access Networks — Multiple flavors of DSL have emerged, including ADSL, VDSL, and IDSL, creating a collective group called xDSL. These technologies offer a speedy alternative to cable modem services, but do the challenges outweigh the perks? Read on to find out if xDSL can become a successful Residential Broadband network.

Wireless Access Networks — A variety of new wireless technologies may offer an appealing alternative to wired networks…maybe not. Here, Abe discusses the wireless technologies available and their potential to support RBB services.

Introduction to IP Multicast —- The author provides a brief history of IP multicasting, a discussion on the pros and cons of multicast, a description of various multicast applications, and an introduction to the multicast backbone.

Multimedia Multicast Applications — Explore some of the underlying protocols used by multimedia conferencing applications, including those used to encapsulate multimedia conference audio and video data streams and to monitor the delivery of the data to the end-stations in the conference. The chapter concludes with a look at the popular MBone multimedia conferencing applications.

Using PIM Dense Mode — Explore the mechanisms of PIM dense mode in the context of sample networks in typical situations, using Cisco's implementation as an example.

Adding Digital Television Services to Cable Systems — Author Michael Adams begins by discussing the technical and market drivers for digital television and then turns his attention to the enhancements necessary to the cable network in order to support digital television services.
Digital Broadcast Case Studies — Compare and contrast the architectures of the two predominant digital cable systems--DigiCable and Pegasus. The components of each of these systems is discussed detail.

Why OpenCable? — Many people are asking themselves this question these days. If you're one of them, find out more about the goals of OpenCable and solutions this initiative offers.
