From Barnes & NobleThe Barnes & Noble Review
When you consider what netadmins and security professionals are up against, it almost sounds hopeless. The Internet makes it possible to attack your network from virtually anywhere, using any of billions of devices. Worst of all, some 90 percent of security attacks come from inside the organization. How're you going to overcome all that?
Increasingly, the best defenses come from the folks who probably helped you build your infrastructure: Cisco. Now there's a single resource for learning about all of them: Cisco Security Bible. The authors begin with essential techniques like Access Control Lists, which offer more flexibility and capability than many netadmins realize. For instance, you'll find detailed coverage of reflexive access lists, which filter IP packets based on upper-layer session information, and provide important security against spoofing and some DOS attacks.)
You'll walk through deploying and configuring the Cisco PIX firewall, configuring your network access server for AAA security, and securing your VPN using IPSec and Cisco Secure VPN clients. Next, the authors review a laundry list of Cisco security products, new and old, including CiscoWorks 2000 ACL, Cisco PIX Firewall Manager, and Cisco Secure Policy Manager, to name a few. If you're trying to secure a Cisco network, this book helps you even the odds. (Bill Camarda)
