Editorial Reviews Review

Cisco IOS Access Lists takes a methodical approach to access lists and their capabilities, and is ideal for administrators of Cisco equipment who have configured access lists before but feel as if they're not taking full advantage of their capabilities (which, author Jeff Sedayao proves, extend well beyond security). Much of what Sedayao has written is of a "policy engineering" nature, is not strictly focused on Cisco's Internetwork Operating System (IOS), and has relevance to administrators of all sorts of access control equipment. There's emphasis on traffic minimization as well as security, as a section on using access lists to keep routing updates off stub networks exemplifies.

Like many books in the blue system-administration series, this one includes a lot of explanations of what each capability is for, and how each fits with other parts of the system. A lot of times, these sections include conceptual diagrams that show routes of communication and the desired access policies. Then come excerpts from real access lists (Sedayao focuses on IOS 10 and later) and, often, commentary on what the interesting lines of the lists are doing. It's a great way to teach people who have the ability and desire to experiment. Engineers, after all, typically like to learn by doing. --David Wall

Topics covered: The capabilities and limitations of access lists under the Cisco Internetwork Operating System (IOS) and other similar routing and access-control environments. Access policies (with emphasis on packet filtering), routing policies (via route filtering and route maps), and the details of Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) pertaining to access lists are all covered.

Jeff Sedayao is a network engineer with Intel Online Services, the web and application hosting division of Intel Corporation. From 1987 through 1999, he architected and maintained Intel's Internet connectivity, starting with a simple 2400-bps email link through CSNET and ending up with multiple sites connecting to the Internet with multiple ISPs at multi-megabit speeds. He has always been fascinated with policy and policy implementation, ranging from using Cisco IOS access lists for routing and firewall policies to sendmail configurations and address space design. As part of Intel Online Services, his main interests include network usage and performance issues, DNS and email implementation, and addressing and routing policy.

This just the book one would like to read to go through the basics of Cisco ACLs. The author introduces the concepts with some very simple and easily understandable examples.
On the other hand, book is either a little outdated or author has intetionally not included many interesting ACL features. Features like turbo acls, dynamic acls, log input, extended communities are either not discussed or discussed very little in the book. The focus of the book is mostly control plane, the data plane is somewhat neglected.
Overall a decent book, at best a book for a beginner. For someone new to acls this book will help save a lot of time understanding acls, route-maps, prefix-lists, communities, as paths ....

I wouldn't recommend this book to novice network wizards. But for those who can see and identify errors, lets just consider this book as a tech quiz, a la "find and fix". It's been fun for me. Come on... It's impossible to know everything. Don't blame author. He has done a good work. He just didn't have a good support team. Yes, errors, yes, typos, and triple yes overall weight of all discrepancies almost ruin all other good impressions. But still, there are a lot of great and cool tips and tricks I have found.
Hope there will be another edition.

For a book to be used to teach people to use access-lists in Cisco hardware, this book contains entirely too many errors. The author should have either been more diligent or gotten a better (more Cisco knowledgable) proofreader. There are numerous ( I didn't bother to count) errors in both construction and application of the lists in this book.

Format: Paperback
Nothing has become more important to computer networking than security, keeping out those things that are not need for the operations intended. O'Reilly Publishing has put together an excellent choice for administrators to help them ensuring that what needs to stay out stays out.

Do not be fooled by the small size of the book or the fact that the book has only 250 pages, the manual is packed with information that is the key to creating and using access lists. Setting up security policies is just the beginning of the book and the very beginning to creating the access lists you'll need.

From there you have a great breakdown of both standard and extended access lists. Policy writing for routing and security is the next topic discussed, the author makes sure that he has given more than enough information in each section.

Troubleshooting Access lists is the next area followed up with IP Prefix lists, BGP Access lists, mapping for both interior and exterior lists. You'll also work with AS networks and there are appendices for both major port numbers and CIDR layouts.

Also included is case studies to help you understand when, where and why to use access lists. Overall a very well done effort and a book that is making my job easier.
