Media praise for Linux Server Security

"Michael D. Bauer's Linux Server Security isn't for the casual learner; it's a computer toolbox in a book offering intermediate Linux system users a second edition of a classic, adding numerous new security topics and discussions of encryption and mail delivery processes for Linux system administrators and server hsts alike. You don't have to have a security background to use Linux Server Security: just a working familiarity with the system overall."
--James Cox, Midwest Book Review, May 2005

"Even Windows administrators can't get very far away from Linux these days, and the more you know about it the better off you'll be, especially in the area of server security. This book is essentially a tutorial in hardening Linux servers and covers important topics like using iptables, secure remote administration, OpenSSL and Stunnel, and securing various server roles including DNS, LDAP, database, email, and web servers. Good familiarity with basic Linux administration is assumed of course, but the procedures are clearly described and easy to follow even if you're not a Linux guru."
