Cyber Operations walks you through all the processes to set up, defend, and attack computer networks. This book focuses on networks and real attacks, offers extensive coverage of offensive and defensive techniques, and is supported by a rich collection of exercises and resources.

You'll learn how to configure your network from the ground up, starting by setting up your virtual test environment with basics like DNS and active directory, through common network services, and ending with complex web applications involving web servers and backend databases.

Key defensive techniques are integrated throughout the exposition. You will develop situational awareness of your network and will build a complete defensive infrastructure—including log servers, network firewalls, web application firewalls, and intrusion detection systems.

Of course, you cannot truly understand how to defend a network if you do not know how to attack it, so you will attack your test systems in a variety of ways beginning with elementary attacks against browsers and culminating with a case study of the compromise of a defended e-commerce site.

The author, who has coached his university’s cyber defense team three times to the finals of the National Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition, provides a practical, hands-on approach to cyber security.

- This book is based on notes for a course that the author developed and has taught at Towson University for many years. The topics have been continually revised, updated and polished for many years based on student impact and student feedback. These notes are now also used at Bowie State University, which teaches a similar course. - These course notes have been have been hosted online on my blog ( for two and a half years. That site is now averaging roughly 4,000 page views per month. - The National Security Agency over the past three years has begun designating a small handful of universities as National Centers of Academic Excellence in Cyber Operations (Towson University was so designated in 2014.) As more universities move toward this designation, demand for courses like the one this text is based on will increase. Despite the demand however, there are no textbooks on the market for faculty who want to teach hands-on courses in cyber operations. This book is the first to fill this gap.
