Security Strategies In Linux Platforms And Applications (Information Systems Security & Assurance)

PART OF THE NEW JONES & BARTLETT LEARNING INFORMATION SYSTEMS SECURITY & ASSURANCE SERIES! Security Strategies in Linux Platforms and Applications covers every major aspect of security on a Linux system. Written by an industry expert, this book is divided into three natural parts to illustrate key concepts in the field. It opens with a discussion on the risks, threats, and vulnerabilities associated with Linux as an operating system using examples from Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Ubuntu. Part 2 discusses how to take advantage of the layers of security available to Linux―user and group options, filesystems, and security options for important services, as well as the security modules associated with AppArmor and SELinux. The book closes with a look at the use of both open source and proprietary tools when building a layered security strategy for Linux operating system environments. Using real-world examples and exercises, this useful resource incorporates hands-on activities to walk students through the fundamentals of security strategies related to the Linux system.

Needed it for class, I was not really impressed, a lot of repetitive information in the book and not a great learning tool in my opinion.

This book brushes on subjects and doesnt really get into security. Many of the subject were already covered in a Linux+ book. Most this was a waste of money.

Great book, I bought brand new and very helpful thru my class. It explain Linux applications very good and gives guy quizzes at the end of the chapter.

Great book. It helps my study.
