If you would like to know about firewall or get an understanding, I would recommend this book. The part I like the best is "what this book is not" most books dont tell you after you read the entire contents and then figure out "why did i buy this book?"

5 stars for straight to the point and no beating round the bush...worth getting !! Thank you to the author!

Whether you are a relative newcomer to penetration testing or a seasoned security professional you'll not be disappointed. This eBook provides an insightful look into what exactly is required for managing and auditing firewalls from initial design right up to implementation.

In the book the author pulls no punches in highlighting the fact that customers are invariably short changed by some companies providing sub-standard testing which ultimately put their businesses at risk.

One of the criticism of other firewall books, is that they tend to focus on one particular vendor (Cisco, SonicWALL etc), this book is vendor neutral which is very beneficial for companies that use many different types of firewalls in their estate.

If you provide penetration testing or audit firewalls, like myself you may come away reviewing your current testing methodology and include some of the recommendations and advise provided by the author.

As hinted in the book, this is the first in a series. I very much look forward to the next subject if it's as informative as this read.

Interesting little book aimed at pen testers and those hiring them. Interesting for the lay-person too, for someone looking for an insight into this secure world.

I usually buy infosec-related kindle books with a certain amount of trepidation, but I was very pleasantly surprised on this occasion to find a real gem. I was a firewall admin in a previous life, and now work as a security consultant. It just so happens that I'm involved in quite a lot of firewall assessments. The process followed in the book does not exactly follow how engagements work in my own line of work, but nonetheless, the book is filled with solid and practical advice and I was able to apply a lot of the content to my own methods of working.

No nonsense look at firewall security. Hope that they'll keep updating this book as technology develops like a firewall bible. Well written and factually presented rather than creating mystique and bamboozling the reader. Need to understand firewall security or audit it? Buy this book.

Good intermediate level, all round overview. Does not get overly technical but goes deep enough to provide understanding for what is effectively a very large and complex topic.
