About these proceedings


This book discusses the implications of new technologies for a secured society. As such, it reflects the main focus of the International Conference on Ethical Hacking, eHaCon 2018, which is essentially in evaluating the security of computer systems using penetration testing techniques. Showcasing the most outstanding research papers presented at the conference, the book shares new findings on computer network attacks and defenses, commercial security solutions, and hands-on, real-world security experience. The respective sections include network security, ethical hacking, cryptography, digital forensics, cloud security, information security, mobile communications security, and cyber security.
