Publisher Comments:

This book solves the need for a resource that illustrates the principles underlying security technology, as well as provides complete hands-on exercises that will serve as valuable practice for users. Based on open-source software, this book is oriented toward the first-time networking reader. Progressive, practical exercises build confidence; SOHO (small-office-home-office) users will also be impressed with the information provided, as for these users the affordability of open-source solutions can be critical. Comprehensive coverage includes: TCP/IP and related protocols, open-source firewalls, services support and applications that firewalls protect, IPsec and TLS-based VPNs, and firewall log and log servers. An excellent reference and resource for network administrators, security administrators, chief security officers, and anyone with the following certifications: SANS, GSEC, MCSE, MCSA, CNE, A+, and  Security+.
