Description: Describes, in readable and entertaining language, the issues, approaches, and methods for implementing security. It describes how to set up basic security policies and procedures to protect a UNIX system, network, and Internet connection from unauthorized users. The book explains in detail the ways that intruders can get into a system, as well as how to detect them, clean up after them, and even prosecute them if they do get in. It's complete, covering both host and network security, and doesn't require that the reader be a programmer or a UNIX guru to use it. Filled with practical scripts, tricks, and warnings, "Practical UNIX & Internet Security" covers everything a reader needs to know to make a UNIX system as secure as it possibly can be. In this security-conscious age, this book is an essential reference for anyone who is responsible for a UNIX system.
