5.0 out of 5 stars The Only One, September 18, 2002
This review is from: Honeypots: Tracking Hackers (Paperback)
I just read this book and am really impressed. It is not worse or better than other similar books. It is just the only serious book around.(on these issues). Perhaps you could compare it with 'Know your Enemy' (KyE) but then 'Tracking Hackers' would win hands down. After all, about the same content of KyE can be found in the pages of 'The Honeynet Project'. Of course KyE is more concise and organized (than the site), easier to use for understanding Honeynets, and several original attacks are discussed in the book. A good book indeed.

However, HTH is very special, because for the first time there is an extensive discussion about Honeypots, in a unique document (book). And it is very well written. From beginners to experts everybody will enjoy the book. Every single detail is clearly and patiently explained and fitted in the honeypots puzzle. The case studies are clever and representative. The Honeypots are classified according their level of interaction, and treated following the same sequence: BOF, Specter, Honeyd, Man Trap, and 'Home Made' Honeypots (including Jailed Environments) are thoroughly analyzed.
Even Honeynets are discussed, and an significative case study is used to 'put all together'.
As a bonus the related 'legal issues' are also discussed (new to me).
At the bottom line it is an excellent book not only for reading (beginners and intermediates), but also for being used by experts as a reference in Security Courses (just what I am planning to do).
