5.0 out of 5 stars
outdated by progress, but still a good starting point, 4 Mar. 2003
This was one of my first linux security books and i have found it to be my most refered to by a long way, however it is now pretty dated as it is over three years old (when 2.2 kernel and ipchains were new). If you are considering purchasing this book i would sugest you look at the updated second editon, however you cant realy go wrong with this book as it will give you and excelent grounding in the priciples of securing you linux workstation/server and with a little web research you should be able to apply these ideas to the lateest versions of the software.
