Book on NT security and browsing

By lgreen ·
Does anyone know a good book on NT security and browsing. I'm having to piece together rules of NT security and browsing (especially in mixed IP/NETBIOS environments)from different books and none give the complete picture. So far none of the books Iread mentioned that you CANT log into a backup domain controller. And none mentions how workgroups with the same names as domains operate.

Technical information is useful when it gives rules, tells what can't be done as well as what can. Can anyone recommend a book?

Try this one -

"Windows NT Server 4 Security, Troubleshooting, and Optimization" from New Riders Publishing, Indianapolis, IN; by Wayne Dalton et al. Warning - it's 4 yrs old but it still has a few nuggets making it worth the purchase.

Hi, another option:
Microsoft NT 4.0 Security, Audit, and Control: In-depth techniques and guidelines to ensure system security published by MS Press. ISBN: 1-57231-818-x.
You should be able to find the table of contents listed either at mspress website or at an on-line retailer such as amazon.com
I hope this helps.

NT 4 Network Security by Sybex.

I don't know for sure but I think you can have seperate workgroups with the same name. Because, the domain SID generated for each workgroup would be different. The problem I could forsee is if you had two workgroups called DOMAIN (for example) and a client workstation tried to attach to both of them. Interesting.

I still think it would work.

When you write "CANT log into a BDC" do you mean the BDCs are not allowing you to authenticate? Also, rememberthat a workgroup doesn't support domain controllers, only a domain.

Regards,

Get a book on the MCSE course study TCP/IP, the info contained is invalueable. I used SAMS Teach yourself TCP/IP in 14 days. ( I carried the dumb thing around for a month though...)

I now have a though understanding of browsing, as well as how network connections actually take place & subnetting.

Go to your local Libarary and check out Maximum Security. If you want to learn NT security you'll need to understand the why's Like what can be done from Shells on a Unix box to an NT box. A simple NT only book will teach you many things but the truth is, *****Hacking is done from the majority of Unix boxes/Accounts ie shells.

*****real hacking not wannabe's with Back Orffice or NetBus running Trojans or the simple things and such as getting into shares or default NT 3.5 guest accounts. etc......


Granted someone could telnet into your router and Like persay with the routers that USWEST sends to there customers and the telnet port is completely wide open. you can do a show run and it will give you the users ID and password. which inturn you can turn around and collect their mail. NOT A GOOD THING TO DO. so if your with USWEST and using one of there Cisco 675's I recomend you doing some reading there first. Yes I called uswest and Cisco and they refused to answer any ?'sI had regarding this
