Front Cover
Osborne/McGraw-Hill, 1999 - Computer Networks - 484 pages
Hacking Exposed: Network Security Secrets and Solutions is written for network administrators who want to learn the tools and trade of computer hackers, so they can defend their businesses against the coming onslaught. Info World network security columnists Stuart McClure and Joel Scambray plan to leverage the current and future concerns over hacker tools and techniques to draw IT professionals to real-world solutions -- not just another stuffy volume on outdated government security certification principles or Unix-slanted Internet security techniques that have dominated the shelves in the last few years.
