Unified Communications Forensics: Anatomy of Common UC Attacks is the first book to explain the issues and vulnerabilities and demonstrate the attacks, forensic artifacts, and countermeasures required to establish a secure (UC) environment.
This book is written by leading UC experts Nicholas Grant and Joseph W. Shaw II and provides material never before found on the market, including:
• analysis of forensic artifacts in common UC attacks
• an in-depth look at established UC technologies and attack exploits
• hands-on understanding of UC attack vectors and associated countermeasures
• companion website http://secvoip.com giving readers access to the most up-to-date information on UC attacks.
- Provides key information for hackers and pen testers on the most current Unified Communications implementations
- The only book to explore and demonstrate how to work with digital artifacts from attacks within the UC environment
- Deals with UC security from multiple angles—less about theory and more about hands-on threat defense and forensics
Information Security professionals of all levels, VOiP practitioners, information assurance engineers, digital forensics analysts, telecommunications engineers, network engineers, security managers, auditors, and an academic audience among computer science and information assurance majors.
