Reviews: Three Security Books

Up

Down

The three books covered are Linux Server Security, Hardening Linux, and Hardening Apache.
Hardening Linux is 11 chapters long and has 510 pages, discounting index and appendices. It's geared toward a Linux professional who has a little security experience. Two features of this book that I really like are Chapter six, "Using Tools for Security Testing", and Appendix C, "Checkpoints", which gives a chapter-by-chapter punch-list of practices from the book.
