On my desk is a folder containing all sort of cheat sheets relating to security, operating systems, and various web applications. Many a times, these quick references have helped me remember particular options and information that are all too easily forgotten. These guides are also very useful in any training program, helping remind students of the essential information. So when Jim Clausing, from SANS Internet Storm Center (ISC), posted, “New and updated cheat sheets,” an idea hit me: now would be the perfect time to pull together and share this material. Jeremy Stretch at PacketLife is in the process of updating, to quote Jim, “some of his excellent networking cheat sheets (I mentioned his 802.1x one here).” Jeremy has posted such first-rate cheat sheets as:
For help with forensics, Jim points out, “SANS instructor, Rob Lee points us to a couple of new cheat sheets for doing forensics on USB keys under XP or Vista/Win7.” There is also the Memory Analysis Cheat Sheet for Microsoft Windows XP SP2 by Pär Österberg and Andreas Schuster. If you have a SANS Portal Account, you can access the SANS Forensic Analysis Cheat Sheet.
The below table provides links to other security cheat sheets I have found very beneficial. Some are better described as condensed references, verses short 1-2 page cheat sheets. That is noted below.
Hilde Torbjornsen has also posted “Mega Collection Of Cheatsheets for Designers & Developers” where she list more than one hundred cheat sheets and reference cards for the following topics:
|Browsers & OS||HTML||Softwares|
Finally, there is always the Cheat-Sheets, DevCheatSheet (over 1,500 so far) , and TechTarget sites. These two sites offer very large number of links to various cheat sheets on all sorts of topics. If you know of any other good cheat sheets relating to security, please let me know.
