This blog is titled “Connectivity” because it deals with all aspects and issues of network connectivity. That includes how to ensure your network connectivity is secure and available, and how to make sure that malicious attackers can not intercept or disrupt your network connectivity. Do you know what ARP Poisoning is? How about a multicast storm? Have you heard of Spanning Tree Protocol or VLAN Trunking Protocol hacks? Do you know how to protect your network from them? Networkworld.com recently hosted a chat session with Christopher Paggen and Eric Vyncke, authors of LAN switch security: What hackers know about your switches, which covers a wide range of security issues and the authors’ advice and tips for how to lock your network down and protect against these (and other) threats. Read LAN switch security: what the hackers know that you don’t to see what the authors have to say.
