Editorial Reviews


From the reviews:

"Computer security basics are covered in this book. … it is targeted at students. This is evident in the very fluent and comprehensive writing style, and the generally good examples and review questions at the end of each chapter. … the book is very well written … with strong structuring. Every chapter has good references, and includes nice exercises and student projects as resources for lecturers. I recommend this book as a good foundational book and educational tool for network security in a university environment." (Andreas Tomek, Computing Reviews, April, 2006)

From the Back Cover

As society becomes increasingly dependent on computers and computer networks, computer problems continue to rise in number. Yet despite the proliferation of expert remedies, a viable solution to these security issues remains elusive, and society continues to suffer at the hands of cyber vandalism and computer viruses. This comprehensive text outlines and discusses today’s most important issues and concerns in computer network and information safety and security, and promises to ignite debate and participation in the ongoing global security dialog

Computer Network Security is foremost an educational tool that aims to explore computer network infrastructure and protocol design security flaws and discusses current security solutions and best practices. It explores the security threats and vulnerabilities in the current network infrastructure and protocols and outlines current efforts including: Access Control and Authorization, Cryptography, Firewalls and VPNs, Web Security and Content Filtering, among others. The text further discusses various security proposals including:

* Raising awareness of the security problems in cyberspace, and, more particularly, computer network security

* Starting a discussion on computer network infrastructure and protocol design flaws and vulnerabilities

* Exploring the role of legislation and law enforcement in maintaining computer and computer network security

* Proposing efficient and widely acceptable solutions and best practices to the security problem, and encouraging readers to investigate other possible solutions

This text is an invaluable instructional and research tool for courses in computer and information security. Students or practitioners in computer science, information science, technology studies, library sciences, and information management studies will find this text particularly useful for their purposes. In addition, it is a rich resource for those looking to gain an understanding of computer infrastructures and network security threats.

By S. Khanna on June 20, 2008
Format: Hardcover
This is the only book I bought during graduate school (with the exception of a Motorola manual) and it was god awful. I wish I could go back an unbuy it. I only bought it because my professor wrote it and the man is an idiot. I learned nothing from the two classes I had to take from him. He couldn't even explain the basics of Shortest Path.

One of the students discovered that eight pages of this book were word for word verbatim taken from a Microsoft manual. The book doesn't go into any actual details on real security issues, but repeats rhetoric and buzz-words throughout the entirety of the book.

If your class requires this book, drop the class. I guarantee the class will be totally worthless.
