3.0 out of 5 stars Nice reference but ... August 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nice to read but I think it fell short on the technical side. It would have been a lot better if it included more how materials or technical references so we could use it to bulid proof of concept projects.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent read though very brief October 8, 2013
By Anon
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book expands upon the tools and concepts utilized in the active defense suite. I purchased the book, because I appreciate the work they have put into that suite. That being said, I feel the book leaves a lot to be desired. The whole book seems rushed. Typos and errors abound. I was also expecting a little more depth into legality. For those new to the idea of actively defending networks or security in general, this is still a good read. For those with a little more experience, just view the Derbycon talk and download AD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good overview of Offensive strategies September 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Overall this book provides a good review of high level concepts with some minor depth of what organizations can do to better protect their assets using both defensive and offensive strategies. I was just hoping for a more technical explanation, and more advanced techniques, but the book does cover what it states. I really hope that there will be a continuation of discussions and more information released regarding this topic and the future of where cyber security / warfare will bring us

This is a great read for someone that has already spent some time doing Information Security on either the offensive or defensive side. It presents some creative ways to perform annoyance, attribution, and, ultimately, attack the attackers. Since this is quite different from the traditional and accepted approaches to InfoSec, I look forward to seeing how the industry responds to the ideas that are presented.

The book is self-published...there are some typos, minor grammatical problems, etc. But the content is very good.

This book should be one of many resources that you use to grow your knowledge and abilities.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for what it is. March 12, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is good for what it is. It is not an academic InfoSec book.

The book is ontended to give some hands on tools for active cyber defense. If you are looking for a deep explanation of how the variuos tools work then look elsewhere. If you want a quick and dirty set of tools that help you set up an active defense environment then this is the book.
