Basically, this is a printed copy of four commonly cited resource lists, with an additional resource by one of the authors. It is a separate volume containing the resource section of "Using the Internet" (see reviews). The resources printed are the Spafford/Lawrence Usenet newsgroups description list, the da Silva "list of (mailing) lists", the Yanoff "Special Internet Connections" list, and the inter-network mail guide, also maintained by Yanoff. To this, Pike has added a "Host Resource Guide" which starts with a list of ftp sites and then adds a miscellaneous "catalogue" by topic. Oddly, while there is no attempt to hide the authorship of the bulk of the book, and the fact that the material is fr... Rest of this review on the detail page

This is a big book--more than 850 pages. And the type is small, too. It has precisely what's needed to pack a comprehensive resource on Internet security into a single volume. The authors don't waste space on philosophizing or lecturing about security--they simply lay out what a site manager needs to know, beginning with the basics of TCP/IP. The book presents a five-part approach. Part one deals with security management, including TCP/IP, daemons, UUCP, and audit trails. Part two switches perspectives to that of the intruder, showing ways of gaining illicit accesses and how attempts to do so can be thwarted. Part three examines the challenges of creating secure channels for messaging. Part four shows how to deal with security concerns rais... Rest of this review on the detail page
