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.
