Books

There are many books available on the topic of cybersecurity that are designed for professionals working in the field. These books cover a wide range of topics, including network security, threat intelligence, incident response, and cybersecurity management. They are often written by experts in the field and are designed to provide practical guidance and best […]

Threat Intelligence

Threat intelligence in cybersecurity refers to the collection and analysis of information about potential security threats and vulnerabilities. It involves gathering and analyzing data from a variety of sources, including open source intelligence, proprietary data, and technical data, in order to understand the nature and scope of potential threats and to develop strategies for mitigating […]

Honey Pot / Honey Net

A honey pot (or honeypot) is a security tool that is designed to mimic a vulnerable system or service in order to capture and log any malicious activity or network traffic directed towards it. Honey pots are often used as a research and education tool, allowing cybersecurity professionals to study and understand the tactics, techniques, […]

Threat Hunting

Threat hunting is the proactive process of searching for and identifying potential security threats within an organization’s network. Threat hunting involves using a variety of tools and techniques to identify indicators of compromise (IOCs) and other signs of malicious activity within an organization’s systems and data. This can include analyzing log files, monitoring network traffic, […]

Monitoring / Logging

Monitoring and logging in cybersecurity refers to the process of continuously monitoring and collecting data about network activity and security events, and storing this data in a centralized location for later analysis. Monitoring and logging can be used to identify potential security threats, track the progress of a security incident, or to troubleshoot problems on […]

Scanning / Pentesting

Scanning and pentesting (also known as penetration testing) are important techniques used in cybersecurity to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses in systems and networks. Scanning involves using automated tools to identify potential vulnerabilities in a system or network, while pentesting involves manually attempting to exploit those vulnerabilities in order to test the security of a system. […]

Sniffer

A sniffer (also known as a packet sniffer or network analyzer) is a tool that is used to capture and analyze network traffic. In the context of cybersecurity, sniffers are often used to monitor network activity and identify potential security threats, such as malware infections or unauthorized access attempts. Sniffers can be used to capture […]

Firewall

An open source firewall is a type of software-based firewall that is developed and maintained by a community of volunteers, rather than a commercial organization. Open source firewalls are often considered to be more secure and reliable than proprietary firewalls, as they are subject to more rigorous testing and scrutiny by a wider community of […]

Fast Packet Processing

Fast Packet Processing (FPP) is a technique used in cybersecurity to analyze and process network traffic in real-time. FPP involves analyzing and processing packets of data as they are transmitted over a network, allowing for the detection and prevention of security threats in real-time. Open source FPP tools are tools that are developed and maintained […]
