    Great book on the Cisco ASA

    Cisco ASA : All-in-One Firewall, IPS, and VPN Adaptive Security Appliance (Paperback) by Omar Santos, Jazib Frahim ISBN: 1587052091 Lately there is a fashion to say that now the network layer has been secured and so application security rules and that is what we need to worry about. Nothing can be further from the truth, imagine if a VPN implementation is not working as desired is it possible to still have a secure application layer, I think not. That is why they are called layers as they work in perfect harmony with each other. The book on Cisco ASA provides a very good understanding of the Adaptive behaviour of the next generation of cisco products which do the work of detection, prevention and combatting network threats. The book explains in a very lucid way to implement and configure a complex device which handles the work of a virus scanner, content filter, firewall and VPN. Through various confguration examples and designs the book explains the complex task of troubleshooting and that itself is worth the price of the book. The tips on how to use the various debug commands to fine tune the device are invaluable and a must for any one attempting to tame this beast. The coauthor Jazib Frahim, CCIE is a senior network security engineer in the Worldwide Security Services Practice of Advanced Services for Network Security at Cisco. The coauthor Omar Santos is a senior network security engineer in the Worldwide Security Services Practice of Advanced Services for Network Security at Cisco. I give this book 5 stars on a scale of 5, 5 being the highest. I strongly recommend this book. Niloufer Tamboly, CISSP
