SecTools.Org: Top 125 Network Security Tools For more than a decade, the Nmap Project has been cataloguing the network security community's favorite tools. In 2011 this site became much more dynamic, offering ratings, reviews, searching, sorting, and a new tool suggestion form . This site allows open source and commercial tools on any platform, except those tools that we maintain (such as the Nmap Security Scanner , Ncat network connector , and Nping packet manipulator ). We're very impressed by the collective smarts of the security community and we highly recommend reading the whole list and investigating any tools you are unfamiliar with. Click any tool name for more details on that particular application, including the chance to read (and write) reviews. 12 tools Aircrack is a suite of tools for 802.11a/b/g WEP and WPA cracking. version 1.1 on April 24, 2010 (2 years, 5 months ago). crackers wireless version 4.9.43 on Dec. 3, 2011 (10 months ago). sniffers traffic-monitors fuzzers Categories

Researchers crack the world’s toughest encryption by listening to the tiny sounds made by your computer’s CPU Security researchers have successfully broken one of the most secure encryption algorithms, 4096-bit RSA, by listening — yes, with a microphone — to a computer as it decrypts some encrypted data. The attack is fairly simple and can be carried out with rudimentary hardware. The repercussions for the average computer user are minimal, but if you’re a secret agent, power user, or some other kind of encryption-using miscreant, you may want to reach for the Rammstein when decrypting your data. This acoustic cryptanalysis, carried out by Daniel Genkin, Adi Shamir (who co-invented RSA), and Eran Tromer, uses what’s known as a side channel attack.

Top 15 Open Source/Free Security/Hacking Tools 1. Nmap Nmap (“Network Mapper”) is a free and open source (license) utility for network discovery and security auditing. Nmap uses raw IP packets in novel ways to determine what hosts are available on the network, what services (application name and version) those hosts are offering, what operating systems (and OS versions) they are running, what type of packet filters/firewalls are in use, and dozens of other characteristics.

Defensible network architecture For the nearly 20 years since Zwicky, Cooper and Chapman first wrote about Firewalls the firewall has been the primary defense mechanism of nearly every entity attached to the Internet. While perimeter protection is still important in the modern enterprise, the fact is that the nature of Internet business has vastly changed and the crunchy perimeter and squishy inside approach has long since become outdated. You can’t deny what you must permit and the primary attack vectors today appear to be email and browser exploits; two aspects of your business model that you cannot do without and which can give the bad guys a foothold inside your perimeter protections. As the Sony, Target, Home Depot, and many other breaches have shown, once the bad guys are into the network they are content to dig in, explore, and exfiltrate large amounts of data and will often go undetected for months. What is needed is a security architecture that focuses on protecting data and detecting anomalies. Segregation

What Is Onion Routing, Exactly? [MakeUseOf Explains] Internet privacy. Anonymity was one of the greatest features of the Internet in its youth (or one of its worst features, depending on who you ask). Leaving aside the sorts of problems that spring forth from anonymous interaction, such as the lack of consequences, Internet privacy and anonymity is important for preventing some serious crimes, like identity theft. And so when topics related to Internet privacy pop up, you’ll often hear of “private browsing” and “proxy servers” and such. But honestly, the Internet is never truly anonymous. For the most part, your activities can be traced back to you; the only difference is how difficult it is to trace your actions back to you.

4 Basic Life Lessons from Basic Training Editor’s note: This is a guest post from Mike Inscho. If you’ve been a reader of The Art of Manliness for more than a day, you know Brett, Kate, and all of the regular contributors do a fantastic job of searching out and relaying habits of great men to us. Men like Ernest Shackleton, Henry David Thoreau, and Charles Atlas, all set examples that every man can follow. I haven’t attempted to take 27 men to the South Pole, and, after having my ship become stuck in ice, somehow managed to get them all home alive like Mr. Shackleton. But I am part of a small group (.45% of the total American population) that consistently creates great men and demands that its members be constantly improving.

The Coming Insurrection The Tarnac 9 were once just nine individuals who had withdrawn from the capitalist paradigm to live a quiet, communal life in an isolated French mountain village. They grew their own food, opened a small grocery store and started a movie club where they screened films for their rural neighbors. The group, nearly all of whom hailed from affluent Paris suburbs, were highly educated and, by all accounts, friendly, helpful and generous. It was an idyllic existence, far from the consumer spectacle of modern urban existence.

The Best Hacking Tutorial Sites - Learn Legal Hacking - StumbleUpon written by: Daniel Robson•edited by: Aaron R.•updated: 2/13/2011 Whether it's to understand potential attack vectors or simply for the fun of it, learning the basics of hacking is something that a lot of people aspire to. Here's our list of the top tutorial based hacking sites. Why biometrics don't work (Editor's note: In this guest essay, Dave Aitel, CEO of penetration testing firm Immunity Inc., points out two shortcomings with using biometric sensors as a replacement for old-fashioned passwords.) Weak passwords are often blamed for many security breaches - but one of the biggest mistakes we can make is to replace them with biometrics. Over the past few years, there's been a lot of discussion from security firms, startups, big technology companies and privacy advocates about the need for technology to move beyond the password. The most widely suggested replacement for passwords has been biometrics (fingerprints, heartbeats, voice and facial recognition, iris/retinas) - and now that Apple has just introduced a fingerprint scanner on the new iPhone 5S, it's going to add tremendous momentum to this already burgeoning industry.

It's easier than ever for the government, Web sites and private businesses to track exactly what you do online, know where you've visited, and build up comprehensive profiles about your likes, dislikes and private habits. And with the federal government increasingly demanding online records from sites such as Google and others, your online privacy is even more endangered.
