This book provides readers insights into cyber maneuvering or adaptive and intelligent cyber defense. It describes the required models and security supporting functions that enable the analysis of potential threats, detection of attacks, and implementation of countermeasures while expending attacker resources and preserving user experience. This book not only presents significant education-oriented content, but uses advanced content to reveal a blueprint for helping network security professionals design and implement a secure Software-Defined Infrastructure (SDI) for cloud networking environments. These solutions are a less intrusive alternative to security countermeasures taken at the host level and offer centralized control of the distributed network.

The concepts, techniques, and strategies discussed in this book are ideal for students, educators, and security practitioners looking for a clear and concise text to avant-garde cyber security installations or simply to use as a reference.
