The new global environment relies on communications and advanced technologies, more and more often in the form of networks. These elaborate, sophisticated internets, intranets, and extranets are not always tightly-woven, leaving holes through which determined outsiders can creep. Active security measures are the only things that will successfully safeguard valuable systems and networks from intruders.
Based on the authors' research and practical experience, Secure Computers and Networks: Analysis, Design, and Implementation enables C10s, MIS/DP managers, systems and applications programmers, and a variety of network specialists to maintain and protect increasingly complex network, configurations. It outlines the basic, most practical measures you need to take to protect your systems from invasion by all but the most talented, persistent criminals.
