Web sites are defaced. Viruses shut down network operations and deny services to both customers and employees. As organizations rely increasingly on the Internet to perform their company's business, the impact of network security breaches grows more dramatic. The task of securing an organization's resources tends to fall on administrators who lack both the time and know-how to properly secure a network.Web Security Field Guide is a how-to book, providing the steps to securing networks and the conceptual information to understand what these actions are doing. Network administrators who have part time security responsibilities will be able to take this book, follow the steps, and prevent the vast majority of intrusion attempts. Web Security Field Guide covers the techniques for hardening the operating system, the web server and the browser. It then addresses firewalls, access lists, ongoing security maintenance, and testing.Coverage of these topics is focused not on the theoretical explanation of how the technology works, but on how to apply the technology. Most chapters introduce a topic, provide enough background tounderstand the problem and how the solution works, and then move on to a tutorial showing how to secure the component under discussion or how to install and implement the security tool being introduced. An essential workplace tool, this portable guide is designed for the application of real-world solutions.Steve Kalman, CCNA, CCDA, and CISSP, is the Managing Director for Esquire Micro Consultants, where he teaches and technically edits courses on Cisco routers, Microsoft Windows, and networking, telecom, and security topics for LearningTree.
