Product Description

Amazon Review

In the vast and varied universe of computer books, a few stand out as the best of their subject areas. Building Internet Firewalls is one of these. It's deep, yet carefully focused, so that almost anything you might want to know about firewall strategies for protecting networks is here. Plus, there's a lot of information on the reasons we build firewalls in the first place, which is to say the security risks that come with Internet connectivity. You'll learn a great deal about Internet services and the protocols that provide them as you follow this book's recommendations for stifling attacks.

If there's a shortcoming to this book, it is its lack of coverage of the turnkey firewall products that are becoming popular among homes and small office users. Emphasis here is on more complicated network defences that require careful design and setup--both design and implementation are the order of the day here. The authors carefully enumerate the threats they see in various situations, go into some detail on how those threats manifest themselves, and explain what configuration changes you can make to your perimeter defences to repulse those threats. Plenty of illustrations make points about good and bad security strategies (you want to put the routers here and here, not here or here). You'll learn a lot, no matter how much experience you have, by reading this book cover to cover. --David Wall, Amazon.com

Topics covered: Means of protecting private networks from external security threats. The authors go into detail on attackers' means of exploiting security holes in common Internet services, and show how to plug those holes or at least limit the damage that can be done through them. With coverage of Unix, Linux, and Windows NT, the authors detail their philosophies of firewall design and general security policy.

Review

This is a book that is useful on many levels, and by many people within an organization. -- OpenBSD Journal, January14, 2002

Format: Paperback
Both an excellent and readable introduction to the subject, and (possibly more importantly) an invaluable reference work.
It also gives you enough information to set up a firewall regime "on the cheap" using Linux based equipment.
This book clearly explains how to set up packet filtering proxies and the like for just about every kind of service you can think of. I used it to set up Cisco systems and find it much easier than Cisco's rather foggy documentation.
Having said that a reasonable knowledge of TCP/IP is assumed and beginners should probably read TCP/IP Network Administration from the same publisher first.

Like many software books, it's hard to write something that manages to balance theory and practice, since the practical aspects keep changing (new software, new standards...). I think this book does this quite well.
You'll need a good understanding of TCP/IP though.
