Now in its third edition, the best-selling SECURITY+ GUIDE TO NETWORK SECURITY FUNDAMENTALS provides the most up-to-date industry information, reflecting the changes in security that have occurred since the most recent CompTIA Security+ objectives were created. The book covers all of the new CompTIA Security+ 2008 exam objectives and maps to the new Security+ 2008 exam. This updated edition features many all-new topics, including topics new to the CompTIA exams like cross site scripting, SQL injection, rootkits, and virtualization, as well as topics of increasing importance in the industry as a whole, like the latest breeds of attackers, Wi-Fi Protected Access 2, and Microsoft Windows Vista security.

# Virtual attack-and-defend computer labs allow readers to set up and connect multiple virtual computers within a single computer for hands-on experience with defending against network attacks.
# 'Today's Attacks and Defenses' open each chapter, highlighting real-life descriptions of some of the most current trends in attacks and defenses.
# Companion website offers updated security labs, newsfeeds, security blogs, videos and other supplemental resources.
# Numerous illustrations of security vulnerabilities, attacks, and defenses help readers visualize security elements, theories, and concepts.
# Hands-on projects are provided in each chapter to provide practical security software and hardware implementation experience, covering Microsoft Windows Vista and Linux operating systems, as well as software downloaded from the Internet.
# Two new lab manuals, one using Microsoft Windows Vista and Microsoft Windows Server 2008 and one based on virtualization, offer additional resources and opportunities for learning.
