Summary When Practical UNIX Security was first published in 1991, it became an instant classic. Crammed with information about host security, it saved many a UNIX system administrator and user from disaster. This second edition is a complete rewrite of the original book. It's packed with twice the pages and offers even more practical information for UNIX users and administrators. You'll find coverage of features of many types of UNIX systems, including SunOS, Solaris, BSDI, AIX, HP-UX, Digital UNIX, and Linux. Practical UNIX and Internet Security includes detailed coverage of Internet security and networking issues, including World Wide Web security, wrapper and proxy programs, integrity management tools, secure programming, and how to secure TCP/IP services (e.g., FTP, SMTP, DNS). Chapters on host security contain up-to-date details on passwords, the UNIX filesystem, cryptography, backups, logging, physical security, telephone security, UUCP, firewalls, and dealing with breakins. You'll also find extensive summary appendixes on freely available security tools, references, and security-related organizations
