Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Network Management: Principles and Practice provides a balance of theoretical backgrounds and practical aspects of network management. Unlike other books that talk only about specific network technologies, Mani Subramanian lays the foundation for network management by presenting the background, the technologies, and the tools that all network managers simply must know. He does this by breaking the book down into three parts:

  • Part I provides a background on networking and network technologies such as hubs, routers, bridges, and switches.
  • Part II addresses network management architectures and protocols before moving on to discuss SNMP management, broadband management, and TMN.
  • Part III focuses on tools to monitor network parameters, network management applications, and solutions to manage networks and systems.
Throughout the book, the author intertwines real-world examples based upon his experience in managing, engineering, and operating networks.

I purchased this book as part of the required reading for an Information Security class at UCLA. From the start the book was full of very technical and detailed information. Having little practical network experience, my first reading focused on grasping the low-hanging fruit. As I read the book a second and third time I picked up some serious knowledge. It seemed like everytime I re-read a chapter there was more there to glean. I'm now studying for the CISSP and CISA. My initial cold self-assessments returned scores in the 80%-100% range. That's without CISSP/CISA-specific studying. I attribute most of that knowledge to this book. This was money well spent!

Pretty good starting book for serious beginners in the network security area. Give you an in-depth overview of cryptography (part 1) and network security (part 2). The system security (part 3) is kind of weak. Most of the discussion are rather theoretic than practical, so you need another more practical book as companion. Anyway, understanding the contents of the book will lay a solid foundation for further exploring in the network security. BTW, if you hate math, this won't be a book for you!

This book appears to be a shorter, more concise version of Stallings' "Cryptography and Network Security: Principles and Practice." It has a much shorter, and therefore less complete treatment of security concepts in general and specifically cryptography. It might be good for a focused introductory course on network-level security, but there's not much there about application-level security. Overall, I found it a little terse. I like Stallings' books on networks and computer architecture better.

I bought this book with great hope. I have spent the past 12 odd years of my career working on various networking protocols. But, I had never worked on network management systems. I figured I could use a good book about network management. Looking at the TOC and the author's info (the author teaches at GaTech), I figured I wouldn't go wrong if I read this book.

The author definitely covers a lot of ground. The emphasis is squarely on SNMP based systems. The author also has some decent discussion about EMS/NMS, event-correlation, commercial and open-source management systems, etc.

So, why am I giving it 2*-s? I didn't like the book because it is very hard to read. The sentences are very difficult to read and understand. You have to make a big effort to figure out what the author is saying and even then, it's not easy. I am hoping the author and the editors simplify the language of the book and update some of the content in the next edition. So, my suggestion would be: wait till the next edition if you can, else, be ready to put in a lot of time into reading this book.

I had to use this book for my Network Security class at grad level. Bits and pieces here and there do not help anyone who wants to learn the details of NW Security; but this book is what it is. I have used several Stallings' books and they are, at least in most cases, detail oriented and some of the best in the market. It is even harder for me to comprehend that Cryptography and NW Security Management are covered in the book in just 21 pages and 11 pages consecutively (but divided by other names later in the book with no tangible useage). See, if you want to learn Network Security, especially if you are employed in the area, I don't think you would appreciate just 21 pages of coverage of Cryptography. Not getting anything new in a chapter like that would be just too lame for you. Yes, the book refers to Applications and Standards in the subtitle but without implementation techniques and not a string of code that you usually find in your professional magazine subscription (from a programmer's perspective).

However, if you are interested in Cryptography types or the strength of Symmetric Algorithm, DES or RC5 or Blowfish or DES or triple DES (3DES); go ahead and read it. After all it is by Stallings. You also will find some tricks on Message Authentication without Message Encryption. Humm...? Anyhow, if you are a programmer and want to program some SecIS or SecSDLS, this is not for you. My professor's recommendation of this book even made me question my capable instructor. The good thing in the class? My professor had to develop his own lecture for each class...it was much better!!! I hope this helps and Good luck!

I bought this book for an information security advanced networking class and have found it useful. I found it to be a good companion for more howto style books. For example, it goes into detail about how encryption algorithms work with descriptive figures which helped me to understand the topic. One thing I took away from that subject is that encryption algorithms should be straightforward and still the ciphertext should be very difficult to decrypt without the key. It makes any weaknesses in the algorithm easier and much more likely to be identified. Hadn't thought about the problem from that perspective before. Makes sense.

This book is helpful, but at first it seems to be filled with a lot of technical information and jargon. However, after reading through the chapters and going back and reviewing, I understood the material much better.
