Description The well-insulated public has not yet had the opportunity to learn what hackers and hacking are really all about: they don′t understand the full scope of hacking and how profoundly it′s changing all of our lives,” says author Winn Schwartau. Written for the layperson, Hacking takes the reader from the basics (What is hacking? Who hacks?); through actual hacking tools and techniques; to corporate, law enforcement, and military hacking policies; to how to become a successful antihacker. It provides balanced viewpoints through words and images from the principal figures in the hacking and antihacking worlds: corporate security experts, lawyers, judges, security-conscious military and government officers, and hackers and phreakers themselves. Your book will be personally autographed by Winn Schwartau.
