"Aimed at beginners interested in learning the fundamentals of computer security, this book proves itself as a valuable guide that will take beginners on a journey through diverse areas of this challenging topic."
--Mirko Zorz, Help Net Security
"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."
