Mixes wit, satire and legend in a collage-like drama of bewitching characters and entertaining plots centred about the legendary life of the Irish poets Curither and Liadin. "Highly recommended" - LJ Review.
Written by leading experts in the field, this work summarises the important aspects relating to layered intrusions, with almost universal coverage of the subject. Each chapter is a complete review of a theme or specific geological intrusion. The first part of the book covers the general principles and processes which apply to all intrusions. Those chapters on individual intrusions concentrate on factual information. A detailed full colour geological map of the Skaergaard intrusion is also included. This book will appeal to a wide audience - university libraries, research students in igneous petrology, state organisations such as exploration companies - as well as being an ideal textbook for university courses on igneous petrology, and geochemistry and petrography.
This book is a training aid and reference for intrusion detection analysts. While the authors refer to research and theory, they focus their attention on providing practical information. New to this edition is coverage of packet dissection, IP datagram fields, forensics, and snort filters.
The Real Stories Behind the Exploits of Hackers, Intruders and Deceivers
Author: Kevin D. Mitnick
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
Hacker extraordinaire Kevin Mitnick delivers the explosive encore to his bestselling The Art of Deception Kevin Mitnick, the world's most celebrated hacker, now devotes his life to helping businesses and governments combat data thieves, cybervandals, and other malicious computer intruders. In his bestselling The Art of Deception, Mitnick presented fictionalized case studies that illustrated how savvy computer crackers use "social engineering" to compromise even the most technically secure computer systems. Now, in his new book, Mitnick goes one step further, offering hair-raising stories of real-life computer break-ins-and showing how the victims could have prevented them. Mitnick's reputation within the hacker community gave him unique credibility with the perpetrators of these crimes, who freely shared their stories with him-and whose exploits Mitnick now reveals in detail for the first time, including: A group of friends who won nearly a million dollars in Las Vegas by reverse-engineering slot machines Two teenagers who were persuaded by terrorists to hack into the Lockheed Martin computer systems Two convicts who joined forces to become hackers inside a Texas prison A "Robin Hood" hacker who penetrated the computer systems of many prominent companies-andthen told them how he gained access With riveting "you are there" descriptions of real computer break-ins, indispensable tips on countermeasures security professionals need to implement now, and Mitnick's own acerbic commentary on the crimes he describes, this book is sure to reach a wide audience-and attract the attention of both law enforcement agencies and the media.
An intrusion detection system inspects all inbound and outbound network activity and identifies suspicious patterns that may indicate a network or system attack from someone attempting to break into or compromise a system. Intrusion detection (ID) is a type of security management system for computers and networks. An intrusion detection system gathers and analyzes information from various areas within a computer or a network to identify possible security breaches, which include both intrusions (attacks from outside the organization) and misuse (attacks from within the organization). Intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDPS) are primarily focused on identifying possible incidents, logging information about them, and reporting attempts. In addition, organizations use IDPSes for other purposes, such as identifying problems with security policies, documenting existing threats and deterring individuals from violating security policies. IDPSes have become a necessary addition to the security infrastructure of nearly every organization Intrusion detection system uses vulnerability assessment (sometimes refered to as scanning), which is a technology developed to assess the security of a computer system. The safeguarding of security is becoming increasingly difficult, because the possible technologies of attack are becoming ever more sophisticated; at the same time, less technical ability is required for the novice attacker, because proven past methods are easily accessed through the Web. This book, Intrusion Detection Systems, presents the practical application and results obtained for existing networks as well as results of experiments confirming efficacy of a synergistic analysis of anomaly detection and signature detection, and application of interesting solutions, such as an analysis of the anomalies of user behaviors and many others.
Anthony Hope has written two kinds of stories; one interesting for the civilized detail, the other for the situation and plot. When we read the first kind we do not care about the result, and we don't get excited. If we have plenty of leisure and care for little turns of expression, feeling, and thought, and care a great deal for clean and pleasant society, we are content with books like "The Dolly Dialogues." The mixture of tolerance, urbanity, and cynicism is just right for the idle person of refinement who does not want to do anything very difficult; even to feeling and thinking. The other kind of book vein that Mr. Hope has done well is the romantic story of adventure: as " The Prisoner of Zenda," where we are hurried along by a string of exciting impossibilities. "The Intrusions of Peggy" is a mixture of these two manners. It has the Hope quality in the details—the indirect, civilized suggestiveness, the lightness, the touch of the mere stylist. One could make pertinent quotations ad infinitum. It has the other element, too, like intrigue and some excitement.
The flow of gravity currents and intrusions is a subject of active research and engineering application. Currently, there are no formal teaching courses for this topic. Materials and information available in the market are scattered and dated. Researchers and engineers face difficulties in acquiring the 'state-of-the-art' knowledge. The book bridges this gap between the need and supply of the relevant insight and know-how.Written by a renowned author who is a recognized authority in the field, this unique compendium assembles the relevant knowledge into a systematic and unified framework. The presentation is gradual from the elementary to the frontier, and accessible to readers with only a basic background in fluid mechanics and applied mathematics. This will facilitate the systematic acquirement and application of available knowledge to both practical problems and further research.This must-have volume is a useful monograph — that can also serve as a textbook in advanced courses — for researchers, students, engineers and applied mathematicians in the fields of civil engineering, hydraulic engineering, mechanical engineering, ocean engineering and environmental engineering.

This is the authors autobiography from birth to when he started his professional career. As stated in the book, from the beginning, his chances were pretty slim. His chances increased with each gamble his mother made. His mother took a chance to move to the bushes of Smythfield to live in a hut built of tar drums by his father, gambling that the financial situation would get better. His mother taught herself to sew and took a chance to invest all the money she had in a used foot pedal sewing machine, believing that she could develop a clientele. His mother totally ignored his dying fathers advice to take him out of high school, and took a chance that despite the fees and books they would be okay. His mother took the chance in supporting him for over a year until he got a job befitting his high school graduate status. His mother took a chance that she would be okay after she stopped getting his contribution when he took a four month student visa to the USA.
