Network and Internet Security
The rapid growth in networking during the 1980s is now leading to a number of security risks. The increase in workstations and endusers elevates the risks of imposing important information. Attachment to the Internet also creates a higher possibility of breaches in security. This work attacks the problems of network and Internet security by teaching appropriate ways to combat intrusions and viruses. It begins with a background of client/server networks and an overview of security risks, exposures and threats. It then describes, more technically, the many different security elements and their uses, including user authentication, virus protection and encryption. The book not only covers network and workstation security, but Internet security as well.
