5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding VOIP Security book, September 1, 2006
This review is from: Understanding Voice over IP Security (Artech House Telecommunications Library) (Hardcover)
As a CTO of a software technology company in the middle of a VOIP project, I found this book invaluable in our research. There are very few books/guides/articles that talk about VOIP security and I believe this is huge thing to consider as you launch a VOIP network in your facilities or work with the protocols. The other book I read was not nearly as technical or complete and some issues defied standard communications standards which I believe were inaccurate.

I can see from the writing that the authors bring complementary knowledge to the table. One being a data/internet security

expert who considers voice "yet another stream of data to protect" and this agnosticism is IMO a good thing because it brings voice into the IT security realm in many enterprises. The other author is a voice and VOIP standards expert so he is able to call attention to the voice and voice protocol specific issues.

The book utilizes many easy to read real world scenarios that lighten the material and distinguish it from being just a reference book on protocols and standards. These scenarios often incorporate well laid out diagrams and pictures that really help you understand what's happening.

If you are investigating or implementing VOIP networks, I definitely recommend you get this book and read it cover to cover.
