To comply with government and industry regulations, such as Sarbanes-Oxley, Gramm Leach Bliley (GLBA), and COBIT (which can be considered a best-practices framework), organizations must constantly detect, validate, and report unauthorized changes and out-of-compliance actions within the Information Technology (IT) infrastructure. Using the IBM® Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager solution organizations can improve the security of their information systems by capturing comprehensive log data, correlating this data through sophisticated log interpretation and normalization, and communicating results through a dashboard and full set of audit and compliance reporting. In this IBM Redbooks® publication, we discuss the business context of security audit and compliance software for organizations and describe the logical and physical components of IBM Tivoli Security Information and Event Manager. We also present a typical deployment within a business scenario. This book is a valuable resource for security officers, administrators, and architects who want to understand and implement a centralized security audit and compliance solution.

Behavior Detection Officers carry out SPOT's mission to identify persons who pose a risk to aviation security by focusing on behavioral and appearance indicators. This report reviewed the SPOT program and analyzed: (1) the extent to which TSA validated the SPOT program before deployment; (2) implementation challenges; and (3) the extent to which TSA measures SPOT's effect on aviation security. The report analyzed TSA documents; interviewed agency personnel and subject matter experts; and visited 15 SPOT airports. Charts and tables.

Router Security Strategies: Securing IP Network Traffic Planes provides a compre-hensive approach to understand and implement IP traffic plane separation and protection on IP routers. This book details the distinct traffic planes of IP networks and the advanced techniques necessary to operationally secure them. This includes the data, control, management, and services planes that provide the infrastructure for IP networking. The first section provides a brief overview of the essential components of the Internet Protocol and IP networking. At the end of this section, you will understand the fundamental principles of defense in depth and breadth security as applied to IP traffic planes. Techniques to secure the IP data plane, IP control plane, IP management plane, and IP services plane are covered in detail in the second section. The final section provides case studies from both the enterprise network and the service provider network perspectives. In this way, the individual IP traffic plane security techniques reviewed in the second section of the book are brought together to help you create an integrated, comprehensive defense in depth and breadth security architecture. “Understanding and securing IP traffic planes are critical to the overall security posture of the IP infrastructure. The techniques detailed in this book provide protection and instrumentation enabling operators to understand and defend against attacks. As the vulnerability economy continues to mature, it is critical for both vendors and network providers to collaboratively deliver these protections to the IP infrastructure.” –Russell Smoak, Director, Technical Services, Security Intelligence Engineering, Cisco Gregg Schudel, CCIE® No. 9591, joined Cisco in 2000 as a consulting system engineer supporting the U.S. service provider organization. Gregg focuses on IP core network security architectures and technology for interexchange carriers and web services providers. David J. Smith, CCIE No. 1986, joined Cisco in 1995 and is a consulting system engineer supporting the service provider organization. David focuses on IP core and edge architectures including IP routing, MPLS technologies, QoS, infrastructure security, and network telemetry. Understand the operation of IP networks and routers Learn about the many threat models facing IP networks, Layer 2 Ethernet switching environments, and IPsec and MPLS VPN services Learn how to segment and protect each IP traffic plane by applying defense in depth and breadth principles Use security techniques such as ACLs, rate limiting, IP Options filtering, uRPF, QoS, RTBH, QPPB, and many others to protect the data plane of IP and switched Ethernet networks Secure the IP control plane with rACL, CoPP, GTSM, MD5, BGP and ICMP techniques and Layer 2 switched Ethernet-specific techniques Protect the IP management plane with password management, SNMP, SSH, NTP, AAA, as well as other VPN management, out-of-band management, and remote access management techniques Secure the IP services plane using recoloring, IP fragmentation control, MPLS label control, and other traffic classification and process control techniques This security book is part of the Cisco Press® Networking Technology Series. Security titles from Cisco Press help networking professionals secure critical data and resources, prevent and mitigate network attacks, and build end-to-end self-defending networks.

STRENGTHEN SOFTWARE SECURITY BY HELPING DEVELOPERS AND SECURITY EXPERTS WORK TOGETHER Traditional approaches to securing software are inadequate. The solution: Bring software engineering and network security teams together in a new, holistic approach to protecting the entire enterprise. Now, four highly respected security experts explain why this “confluence” is so crucial, and show how to implement it in your organization. Writing for all software and security practitioners and leaders, they show how software can play a vital, active role in protecting your organization. You’ll learn how to construct software that actively safeguards sensitive data and business processes and contributes to intrusion detection/response in sophisticated new ways. The authors cover the entire development lifecycle, including project inception, design, implementation, testing, deployment, operation, and maintenance. They also provide a full chapter of advice specifically for Chief Information Security Officers and other enterprise security executives. Whatever your software security responsibilities, Enterprise Software Security delivers indispensable big-picture guidance–and specific, high-value recommendations you can apply right now. COVERAGE INCLUDES: • Overcoming common obstacles to collaboration between developers and IT security professionals • Helping programmers design, write, deploy, and operate more secure software • Helping network security engineers use application output more effectively • Organizing a software security team before you’ve even created requirements • Avoiding the unmanageable complexity and inherent flaws of layered security • Implementing positive software design practices and identifying security defects in existing designs • Teaming to improve code reviews, clarify attack scenarios associated with vulnerable code, and validate positive compliance • Moving beyond pentesting toward more comprehensive security testing • Integrating your new application with your existing security infrastructure • “Ruggedizing” DevOps by adding infosec to the relationship between development and operations • Protecting application security during maintenance
