Product Description

From the Back Cover

This book is an introductory, tutorial-style text designed to give the reader a strong foundational knowledge of securing a Linux system. This book teaches the reader how to securely install and run Linux as it comes shipped from most Linux distributors.

  • Covered topics include the following:
  • Securing network services such as Samba and NFS
  • Installation security details
  • Firewalling with ipchains and iptables
  • Intrusion detection, auditing, and monitoring
  • BIOS and motherboard security issues
  • Kerberos authentication
  • Data encryption
  • Eliminating ID and device risks
  • Preserving data
  • Steps to take if hacked

Format: Paperback
I bought this book when it was recommended to me by a friend. I work as a computer programmer but once or twice a month I have to administrate some Linux servers.
After using ipchains for some time, I needed to take advantage of the new iptables implemented in the new kernels. And this book is perfect for it.
Easy to read and very well documented. Like all SAMS :) books. Briefly, if you want to quickly get up-and-running a SECURE Linux server - you must have this book!
