Book Excerpt: Firewalls and Internet Security, Repelling the Wily Hacker, 2nd Edition

This completely updated and expanded second edition of Firewalls and Internet Security defines the security problems you're likely to face in today's Internet, identifies the weaknesses of the most popular security technologies, and illustrates the ins and outs of deploying an effective firewall. Chapter 2 discusses most of the important security protocols and Chapter 3 delves a bit deeper into the higher-layer protocols.




Building the Right Environment to Support AI, Machine Learning and Deep Learning

uch has changed since the first edition of Firewalls and Internet Security was published in 1994. For one thing, the Web was still a rather obscure concept for most people at that time, so this edition is nearly a complete rewrite.

This book will teach you how to plan and execute a security strategy that allows easy access to Internet services while defeating even the wiliest of hackers. Firewalls and Internet Security was written by well-known senior researchers at AT&T Bell Labs, Lumeta, and Johns Hopkins University. You will benefit from their actual, real-world experience maintaining, improving, and redesigning AT&T's Internet gateway.
