Review:
This is a broad ranging and general introduction to the topic of computer security. It provides a good overview for those not familiar with the myriad aspects of security. In a situation where data reliability and confidentiality are not rigorous concerns, it should be quite sufficient for the manager wanting a summary of the topic. It doesn't add much to a number of other books which cover the field in a similar way. Kane's "PC Security and Virus Protection" , by the same publisher, is more practical. The title is a bit misleading in that few of the topics addressed are specific to LAN protection. While we are assured that Dutton is a security professional, in the sense of getting paid for such advice, the lack of detail and a nu... Rest of this review on the detail page

Review:
This book is written for system administrators who need to know how to keep their systems secure from unauthorized use. The anonymous author takes a hacker's view of various systems, focusing on how the system can be cracked and how you can secure the vulnerable areas. The book makes it clear from the outset that you cannot rely on commercial software for security. Some of it is flawed, and even the best of it has to be used correctly to provide even the most basic security measures. The author scrutinizes such operating systems as Microsoft Windows, Unix, Novell, and Macintosh. He details many of the tools crackers use to attack the system, including several that have legitimate uses for system administration. Rather than merely cataloging...
