This book is an excellent resource for anyone interested in the information security field. Not only do the authors walk you through each lab step by step, they also explain what you are doing and why it is important. Additionally, they provide you with information on how to obtain the tools required for each lab, which can be done in both Linux and Windows environments. The book also provides additional projects to try for yourself if any of the topics arouse your interest. Kudos to Mr. Hirsch and Mr. Nestler for their input in this excellent book. As a former student of theirs, I can say that they are great Network Security instructors and I've learned a great deal from their classes and now, this book.Was this review helpful?
