"...if you are looking to learn a little about computer security and the theory behind it, then this is a good read. Being that I work in the Information Security field, this book will become a fixture on my desk. In fact, I will probably quote from it often."

"While not a technical "how to" manual, this book does a great job in dealing with technical issues and concepts...If you're trying to educate someone who hasn't kept up with the topic of computer security, this would be a very good starting point."

"Computer Security Basics reads like a textbook. If youre taking Computer Security 101, or just have an interest in computer history, cryptology, or government security standards if youd like to know how viruses and worms work, or the vulnerabilities of TCP and UDP this book will meet your needs. On the other hand, veteran IT professionals will probably find this book too basic if you already know the difference between DES, AES, and RSA, youll probably find this book covers ground you traveled some time ago."
