This book can’t hope to tell you everything you need to know about firewalls and the broader issues of network and Internet security. In this appendix, we have pulled together references to what we think are the most useful additional resources. These include both electronic and offline resources: web pages, FTP sites, mailing lists, newsgroups, emergency response teams, other types of organizations, papers, conferences, and books. This list is not exhaustive. Because there are so many resources, and because technologies and publications change so rapidly, there is no way we can keep completely up to date. However, this list should point you in some useful directions.
You’ll find these web pages particularly informative.
This outstanding web page is maintained by Telstra Corporation (formerly known as Telecom Australia). It is very useful as a jumping-off point to other web pages and Internet resources related to network security.
