Through Art of Intrusion, Kevin Mitnick attempts to make the reader aware of the common threats in the cyber domain and give him insights on counter-measures that can be employed against these threats. Mitnick describes this goal in the acknowledgement section of Art of Intrusion.

We wanted to write a book that would be both a crime thriller and an eye-opening guide to helping businesses protect their valuable information and computing resources. We strongly believe that by disclosing the common methodologies and techniques used by hackers to break into systems and networks, we can influence the community at large to adequately address these risks and threats posed by savvy adversaries. Each of the scenarios that Mitnick presents are detailed with insider information on real-life descriptions and methods of breaching security and at times getting pretty technical.

The Insights and Countermeasures section that follows each anecdote will provide the reader with essential tips on preventing such attacks. It can help the security professional in cultivating an attitude of resolve and to shed the dangerous lethargy of overconfidence.

Some of the technical aspects of these exploits that Mitnick discusses in this book may be outdated and software or hardware vulnerabilities that are taken advantage of are patched and made secure from the current viewpoint — not surprising since these incidences are from pre — but there is one true lesson that every information security professional can take from this book; those who try to breach any system will continue to do so by discovering brand new vulnerabilities and crafty methods to exploit those weaknesses.

Learning this mindset will make him prepared and able to cope with cyber crimes and much of the concepts are still relevant, especially those that exploit the human trust to perform a security breach. This book is recommended for anyone with an interest in information security, corporate security and law enforcement. Since the contents can be a bit technical, having some background in the information security arena is desired, else the book may seem confusing or even hard to follow.

A few of the attacks were vague as warned of by the author who collated the tales , and others just lacked relevant technical details.

For example, "the outfit was running a Sun workstation, which is familiar ground for every hacker. What was the OS level?

Was it unpatched? Still, the stories were entertaining. My biggest gripe with the book was the lack of This was an interesting book that reminds you, in several different ways, of the importance of defense in depth. My biggest gripe with the book was the lack of date ranges. This makes a difference for understanding what types of attacks were being used and how relevant such an attack would still be today.

An overall fun read - not condescending to technical readers, but also provides details on the subject matter for a non expert. My friends and I did get some pretty good discussions out of a few of the stories.

In some chapters, the authors went to great lengths to explain the technologies they were talking about e. Unicode explanation was almost 1 paragraph. As if the reader would have no knowledge of technology or very limited knowledge. Then in other chapters, they would mention technologies almost in passing as if everyone knew about it.

It was a decent book, and the stories would have been better off just being told without the need to explain the details of spoofing an email address, or how to port scan.

After reading more about his history I can say that Kevin Mitnick will not be able to write about his experiences until later this year at the earliest. In the majority of cases the exploits described were a result of lazy or inattentive This book is not a textbook, nor is it an account of anything Kevin Mitnick ever did.

In the majority of cases the exploits described were a result of lazy or inattentive network administrators. Nonetheless it is easy to get caught up in the excitement and often times you feel like an accomplice.

I would not recommend this book for someone that has no experience in network and computer terminology. Especially if you want to understand what is going on. Mitnick attempts to describe these terms for a layman but the book would be much longer and the real audience would grow bored if he did a good job of this.

It seems the intended audience is meant to have an understanding of networking and Mitnick outlines this at the outset of the book. In particular I found it interesting how easy some attacks are and even more interesting that some are still possible today. This book is worthwhile for anyone interested in the history of hacking, protecting their own networks and websites or even for those looking to get started in hacking. There was enough technical content to keep the attention of those interested in the details but not too much as to slow down the pace of the book.

The book is split into short stories of other hackers exploits and as a security consultant myself I found the stories both entertaining and thought provoking, if by now a little outdated.
