TippingPoint and our client, SecureLogix has announced the release of “Hacking Exposed VoIP: Voice Over IP Security Secrets and Solutions,” published by McGraw-Hill and co-authored by TippingPoint Director of Security Research David Endler and SecureLogix Chief Technology Officer Mark Collier.
This new book focuses on the specific threats to enterprise voice over IP (VoIP) networks, and is the latest addition to McGraw-Hill’s internationally best-selling Hacking ExposedTM network security book series. The series aims to educate network security practitioners by detailing actual strategies, tactics, and weapons used by hackers to penetrate corporate data networks. A companion website with free security diagnostic tools can be found at www.hackingvoip.com.
As enterprise VoIP adoption continues to increase, so will the scope, frequency, and severity of VoIP-related network attacks. Although VoIP security has become a hot topic of discussion among voice administrators, the media, and industry analysts; little is really understood about which types of attacks are likely to be most prevalent, how these attacks will manifest, and what network administrators should do to prioritize and defend against these threats today and tomorrow.
