Perl Scripting for IT Security

This book is intended for anyone who has an interest in useful Perl
scripting, in particular on the

Windows platform, for the purpose of incident response, and forensic
analysis, and application

monitoring. While a thorough grounding in scripting languages (or in
Perl specifically) is not

required, it is helpful in fully and more completely understanding the
material and code

presented in this book. This book contains information that is useful to
consultants who perform

incident response and computer forensics, specifically as those
activities pertain to MS Windows

systems (Windows 2000, XP, 2003, and some Vista). My hope is that not
only will consultants

(such as myself) find this material valuable, but so will system
administrators, law enforcement

officers, and students in undergraduate and graduate programs focusing
on computer forensics.

*Perl is the third most commonly used programming language in the world

*Helps security professionals in updating settings on a remote server
several cities away,

collecting data for a report to management, and more

*The companion Web site for the book contains dozens of scripts the
reader can download and

use today
