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

Jones & Bartlett Learning needs to hire a better editor and fire whomever is designing the labs for their virtual lab component. For example, at the end of chapter 8 you will find the header proclaim that it is the chapter 7 review questions. The questions do actually belong to chapter 8, just the header is wrong. Really shoddy editing.

Their virtual lab components are laughable at best and are outright incompetently designed. Two of the labs have you create a firewall rule set that ends with a rule that is any any allow. Anyone who knows firewalls knows why that is a stupid rule, especially considering they just had you create 6 or so other rules that would be completely irrelevant the moment you finish with allow all. The two labs are identical with the only difference being that you do it once of a workstation and once on a server OS. They even have you create a rule on the workstation for TCP port 53 which would be a DNS zone transfer... Why would you need that on a workstation?

The next few labs have you log onto their virtual lab environment and read a bunch of pdfs.... Their labs are a joke!

Their virtual labs are also littered with steps that do not belong to that particular lab, and instructions that reference steps that do not exist. I have taken 3 400 level classes with them now and they are consistently awful.

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.

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...
