User Review  - BrentNewhall - LibraryThing

Highly technical book, naturally, that deals with setting up a secure computer or network. Clear and useful. Particularly interesting for the account of extended attacks on AT&T's system during the first Gulf War. Read full review

Review: Firewalls and Internet Security: Repelling the Wily Hacker

User Review  - TK Keanini - Goodreads

Back when Firewalls were first being put in to production, this was the classic text. Bellovin is still very active in the security community. Most of this book is outdated today but the fundamentals are still the same. Read full review
