    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    The information necessary for you to understand the what, why, and how of host integrity monitoring, can be found in this book. Authors Brian Wotring, Bruce Potter, Rainer Wichmann and Marcus Ranum, have done an outstanding job of providing you with a book that walks you through the entire process of establishing host integrity monitoring, including the fundamentals, understanding threats, planning, deployment, administration and response. Wotring, Potter, Wichmann and Ranum begin by revealing everything that is involved in maintaining the integrity of your hosts. Next, the authors explore the many areas of the host environment with respect to establishing an effective host integrity monitoring system (HIMS). Then, they examine some of the most common threats to the integrity of a host environment. The authors continue by walking you through the process of planning the deployment of a HIMS. In addition, the authors next introduce you to Osiris and Samhain. They also provide in-depth practical information about how to properly deploy, configure, and administer the Osiris HIMS. The authors next deal with life after deployment. Finally, they outline some progressive techniques that can be used to strengthen and fine-tune your host integrity monitoring deployment. With the preceding in mind, the authors have done an excellent job of providing the readership with a book that shows what is involved in planning and deploying an effective host integrity monitoring system. At the end of the day, you'll learn the importance of monitoring various elements of the host environment, how to plan for deployment, and how to interpret and respond to integrity violations.
