The goal of this chapter is to take the well-known Open Systems Interconnect (OSI) model and use it to present security topics in a new and unique way.
About this book: Hack the Stack was written for those who seek to better understand and to gain a deeper knowledge of how TCP/IP systems really work. Such knowledge enables security professionals to make networks more secure.
