Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I've read many books about computer and network security, and this blows away all of them. It's easy to read, extremely pragmatic and, as far as I know, it is the ONLY BOOK that discusses how to design, build and troubleshoot end-to-end security. The degree to which Michael discusses 'real-life' security issues is incredible, there is so much information in this book, and I thought I knew how to build secure solutions. You gotta buy this book, it'll save you time and consulting fees
I have found this book an easy read with precise information.... This is a must read for anyone who works with windows and is security conscious.
This title covers in a very readable form many areas of Windows 2000 security. There are also a number of useful tools on the CD. For example, a C/C++ common buffer-overrun problem API analyzer. This along with Keith Brown's Programming Windows 2000 Security are 'must buys.'
