Notes: When "Practical UNIX Security" was first published in
1991, it became an instant classic. Crammed with information about host
security, it saved a legion of UNIX system administrators and users
from disaster. With the Internet's explosive growth in the past five
years, UNIX security has become both more important and more complex,
for the Internet is built on UNIX systems.
To help system administrators and users meet the ever-growing
challenges of UNIX security, O'Reilly & Associates has released a
second edition of "Practical UNIX & Internet Security." As the expanded
title indicates, this new edition is a complete rewrite of the original
book. It's packed with twice the pages and covers the features of most
"flavors" of UNIX, including SunOS, Solaris, BSDI, AIX, HP-UX, Digital
UNIX, Linux, and others.
"Practical UNIX & Internet Security" thoroughly 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.
