Editorial Reviews

From the Author

When I started to work on Internet and intranet security a couple of years ago, the situation was comparably simple. There were some authentication and key distribution systems available that made people believe the Internet would become secure if only these systems were used and widely deployed (e.g., Kerberos). It was at this time that I wrote Authentication Systems for Secure Networks, a companion book also published by Artech House. But after having written the book, I realized that alternative techniques and mechanisms had been developed to provide Internet and intranet security. For example, firewalls started their triumphal march that has continued until today. Also, cryptographic security protocols for the Internet, transport, and application layer had been developed, proposed, and partly implemented. Consequently, I realized that the use of authentication systems is just one possibility to address Internet security, and that there are other possibilities! as well. In this situation, I decided to write Internet and Intranet Security to give a more comprehensive overview about currently available security techniques and mechanisms for TCP/IP-based networks.

The book has been written to serve the needs of computer and network professionals that have interest in understanding, establishing, and supporting secure TCP/IP-based networks. I also hope that the book provides sufficient background to help security professionals propose approaches to secure commercial applications for the Internet. The book is tutorial in nature but still requires some familiarity with the fundamentals of computer networks and distributed systems, as well as cryptography and the use of cryptographic protocols in networked and distributed environments. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Andrew McCaffrey VINE VOICE on May 15, 2003
Format: Hardcover
I found Rolf Oppliger's INTERNET AND INTRANET SECURITY (SECOND EDITION) to be an invaluable tool for helping me get up to speed on some of the fundamental aspects involved in computer network security. This taught me a lot that I needed to know and it did so without being confusing. This book was an assigned text for an Enterprise Security class that I took, and it was an invaluable learning aid, as well as a great resource.
The text covers fundamentals (a TCP/IP networking overview, OSI Architecture, various cryptographic techniques and the attacks they are designed to thwart), access control (explaining packet-filters, application and circuit level gateways, and firewalls), and communications protocols/security (Network Access Layer, Internet Layer, Transport Layer, Application Layer, and message security protocols). Also included is a chapter on Public Key Infrastructures. The book is almost totally focused on teaching theory, with only scant attention paid to real-world implementations. This is not a drawback. If a student learns everything this book has to offer, then that will be a huge advantage when it comes time to turn one's attention towards actual applications.
Most topics that Oppliger discusses include a brief history of the subject. This allows the student to really get a handle on why a system evolved in the way that it did. Also helpful are the numerous pointers to web pages and other texts to supplement the information given here. This book is mostly text-based; pictures, figures and tables are present but used sparingly.
Overall, I would recommend this book to any student new to the field or any novice looking for insight into the topics of computer network security. It casts a very wide net, and while most specifics will be given more depth in other, more specialized books, the amount of information revealed here is more than adequate.

Format: Hardcover
A book that explains literally both Internet and Intranet security matters through firewalls (proxy), and other TCP/IP techniques. Good for computer know-how-ers not covering TCP/IP matters.
