Solid, basic introduction
on 24 July 2009
This is a good basic overview of digital security in the broadest sense. For me the author's habit of slipping really esoteric words into the text spoilt the read as I was always wondering what he was going to try next. This may have been to demonstrate his superior knowledge but it is REALLY irriating.
I suggest that you brush up on the meanings of the following words before starting to read: limn, seriatim, fungible, elide, daedal, operose, malefic, iatrogenic, pregnable, neoteric, nescient, hortatory, aleatory, cozen, jeremiad, croggle, banaustic, anomie.
Some may be jargon but most aren't. The use of opaque words detracts from clear explanations.
