Organisé comme un tutoriel, Rootkits BSD vous présente en détail les techniques de développement de rootkits sous FreeBSD. Il vous arme des connaissances nécessaires pour écrire des rootkits offensifs et s'en défendre, tout en explorant au passage le système d'exploitation FreeBSD ainsi que son noyau. Le but clairement affiché de l'auteur est de vous rendre plus malin que les hackers, non de vous apprendre à lancer des attaques.

FreeBSD is not particularly difficult to use, and its integrated documentation is adequate, but it can take a long time to figure out which packages you need to install in order to get certain services running, and how to configure them once installed. Even if you're familiar with the programs you need to use, learning how they work with FreeBSD can be a challenge. If you are totally new to Unix-like operating environments, this guide could be a little over your head in some places, but if you read it from start to finish and stick with it when things get difficult, you'll end up with a...

FreeBSD and OpenBSD are increasingly gaining traction in educational institutions, non-profits, and corporations worldwide because they provide significant security advantages over Linux. Although a lot can be said for the robustness, clean organization, and stability of the BSD operating systems, security is one of the main reasons system administrators use these two platforms. There are plenty of books to help you get a FreeBSD or OpenBSD system off the ground, and all of them touch on security to some extent, usually dedicating a chapter to the subject. But, as security is commonly named...
