There is a cyberwar underway: The BlackHats Vs. WhiteHats. The BlackHats are individuals who perform malicious activity on a public network. On the other hand, the WhiteHats attempts to prevent their network or networks from being attacked by the BlacksHats. They have been battling for over two decade and unfortunately, the battle continues.
Network Security is a fast growing field will remain an ongoing issue as data becomes more digital. It is extremely difficult to understand and keep track of all the techniques, theories, and tools needed to adequately prevent malicious data from spreading on our networks.
Often times, researchers and teachers explain theory behind network security techniques but neglect to mention how the techniques are implemented. For the protection of our society, in my opinion, it is necessary for new engineers and programmers to know how certain techniques are being implemented in the wild so that research can advance more quickly. Thus, this wiki differs from other wikis because this wiki focus on the implementation rather than the theory. It provides researchers with the necessary tools to run experiments, solve new problems, and protect their networks.
In this wiki site, I will discuss various techniques, tools, and recent developments in network security. I will divide network security into two categories: offensive security and defensive security. Offensive security Both categories are equally important. This wiki not only teaches the concept, but it also thoroughly explain the implementation of the concept. In some cases, I will
