From the Back Cover

The best-selling first edition ofFirewalls and Internet Security became the bible of Internet security by showing a generation of Internet security experts how to think about threats and solutions. This completely updated and expanded second edition defines the security problems companies face in today's Internet, identifies the weaknesses in the most popular security technologies, and illustrates the ins and outs of deploying an effective firewall. Readers will learn how to plan and execute a security strategy that allows easy access to Internet services while defeating even the wiliest of hackers.

Firewalls and Internet Security, Second Edition, draws upon the authors' experiences as researchers in the forefront of their field since the beginning of the Internet explosion.

The book begins with an introduction to their philosophy of Internet security. It progresses quickly to a dissection of possible attacks on hosts and networks and describes the tools and techniques used to perpetrate--and prevent--such attacks. The focus then shifts to firewalls and virtual private networks (VPNs), providing a step-by-step guide to firewall deployment. Readers are immersed in the real-world practices of Internet security through a critical examination of problems and practices on today's intranets, as well as discussions of the deployment of a hacking-resistant host and of intrusion detection systems (IDS). The authors scrutinize secure communications over insecure networks and conclude with their predictions about the future of firewalls and Internet security.

The book's appendixes provide an introduction to cryptography and a list of resources (also posted to the book's Web site) that readers can rely on for tracking further security developments.

Armed with the authors' hard-won knowledge of how to fight off hackers, readers of Firewalls and Internet Security, Second Edition, can make security decisions that will make the Internet--and their computers--safer.

Firewalls & Internet Security: Second Edition
Repelling the Wily Hacker
(Addion Wesley)
William R. Cheswick
Steven M. Bellovin
Aviel D. Rublin
The introduction starts with security truisms a section on picking and defining a security policy. This deals with ethics, strategies and different methods such as host or perimeter security. It touches on encryption and DMZs.
Chapter 2 then gives an overview of TCP/IP covering some common
basic infrastructure protocols. Starting with IP addressing and TCP, the chapter progresses routing, DNS and NAT. It ends with potential risks associated with wireless security.
The third chapter deals with the upper layers. A major focus here is mail transport protocols such as SMTP and the dangers associated with MIME encoded messages. The daemon used in context is sendmail and mail relaying is described. An introduction to RPCbind and NFS are presented along with the dangers of remote access including FTP, SSH and Rlogin.
Chapter 4 is entitled 'the web: threat or menace?' This explains
risks from activeX and javascript through to server side scripting.
The fifth section deals with classes of attacks which covers some
interesting contemporary subjects such as social engineering, backdoors, authentication failures and virii. There are four pages describing what to do about a denial of service attack which descibes a logical approach to mitigating an attack.
Chapter 6, 'the hacker's workbench' goes into more detail about
hacking tools and techniques. Methods such as scanning, rootkits
and clearing logs are described along with popular tools such as
nmap and juggernaut.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indepth to the very end... 9 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This was very useful, describing the true aspects and functionality of network security. If your using NT / *NIX or a hardware solution for your gateway/firewall configurations, this book will get your thoughts racing.
Not for the mild hearted, it does require a certain amount of knowledge of networking and security, but stick with it...

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive, instructive and very interesting 16 Nov 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Firewalls and protocol analysis are two subjects which would ordinarily be dry, dull and sleep-inducing reading. This book manages to hold the reader's interest from cover to cover, throwing in anecdotes and the tale of berferd to illustrate points of network security. Even if you think you know all there is to know about security, this book is required reading for any network professional.

Covers the weaknesses of TCP/IP and higher protocols in good detail. Occasionally difficult for the beginner but definitely manages to keep the interest up. Made me want to know much more about TCP/IP.
