Overview of this book

With the increased demand for computer systems and the ever-evolving internet, network security now plays an even bigger role in securing IT infrastructures against attacks. Equipped with the knowledge of how to find vulnerabilities and infiltrate organizations through their networks, you’ll be able to think like a hacker and safeguard your organization’s network and networking devices. Network Protocols for Security Professionals will show you how. This comprehensive guide gradually increases in complexity, taking you from the basics to advanced concepts. Starting with the structure of data network protocols, devices, and breaches, you’ll become familiar with attacking tools and scripts that take advantage of these breaches. Once you’ve covered the basics, you’ll learn about attacks that target networks and network devices. Your learning journey will get more exciting as you perform eavesdropping, learn data analysis, and use behavior analysis for network forensics. As you progress, you’ll develop a thorough understanding of network protocols and how to use methods and tools you learned in the previous parts to attack and protect these protocols. By the end of this network security book, you’ll be well versed in network protocol security and security countermeasures to protect network protocols.

Part 1: Protecting the Network – Technologies, Protocols, Vulnerabilities, and Tools
Part 2: Network, Network Devices, and Traffic Analysis-Based Attacks
Part 3: Network Protocols – How to Attack and How to Protect


In this chapter, we talked about the misconfigured VoIP risks and attacks that an attacker can perform on a misconfigured IP telephony network, such as MITM, fake registrations, call flooding, and so on. We also talked about how to perform vulnerability scanning and bypass loopholes to compromise SIP servers.

Now we have completed the chapter, you will be able to perform penetration testing and red-teaming on the IP telephony network and also be able to protect against attacks on the real-time production environment.

We really would like to extend our gratitude for reading this book. We are very confident that this book will have shown you best practices for performing penetration testing and applying security to an organization's network. There is still a long way to go and more to add from the technical aspect in our bucket.

We wish you great success in securing organizations from real-time attacks.
