This book covers the basics on network security. Many of the alphabet soup acronyms are explained at an introductory level. The primary strength of this work is its unwaivering focus on why network security is necessary and should never be ignored. It also has support for a range of implementation architectures and explains the strengths and weaknesses of each. The level of support an expert will need is beyond the scope of this work. Citations into the more advanced literature on this topic would improve its utility for those beginners who wish to focus on an IT Security career, for instance Ross Anderson's Security Engineering tome which includes a comprehensive treatment of the entire system including physical security.Security Engineering: A Guide to Building Dependable Distributed Systems

Comcast recently implemented bandwidth limits. We ran over the 300 GB limit last November because I was downloading lots of info for health insurance. I got a notice we were burning up bandwidth in late December and the bleeding continued all of January and into February. A variety of complete scans showed my PC had no malware. A technician suggested that a hardware firewall is superior to a software firewall, like the McAfee one I use on my PC, which was directly connected to Comcast cable. I bought and installed a Netgear router February 1 and the bleeding stopped! We only have one PC so I don't need the router for a local network or for WiFi. I bought this book around the same time to become more knowledgeable about network security issues. It's probably overkill but I prefer to be prepared to deal with such issues. I'm a belt and suspender kind of guy.

Great resource if you are new to the field. Having gone through the first three chapters I would say it's very rudimentary information. Hoping later chapters go deeper.

A little outdated in a few topics and won't impress due to lack of substantiating points. Seems to advertise specific products such as SmoothWall, which costs like $30,000...

This book arrived in a decent amount of time and it was in great condition. The price was also great considering it is a textbook for one of my classes, I hope to buy more in the future if I need them for my classes.
