Computer Security Fundamentals, second edition is designed to be the ideal one-volume gateway into the entire field of computer security. It brings together thoroughly updated coverage of all basic concepts, terminology and issues, along with the practical skills essential to security. Drawing on his extensive experience as both an IT professional and instructor, Chuck Easttom thoroughly covers core topics such as vulnerability assessment, virus attacks, buffer overflow, hacking, spyware, network defense, firewalls, VPNs, Intrusion Detection Systems and passwords. Unlike many other authors, however, he also fully addresses more specialized issues, including cyber terrorism, industrial espionage and encryption - including public / private key systems, digital signatures and certificates.
