Ross Anderson's 2nd Edition of "Security Engineering" book is online (& free)

http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~rja14/book.html

A statement by Ross Anderson that I found interesting is, "When I wrote the first edition, we put the chapters online free after four years and found that this boosted sales of the paper edition."
Sounds like a good idea.

A coworker sent that out yesterday. Definitely a +1 from me. One of the best all-around security books I have.

I'm kind of surprised a publisher would agree to this; or admit it increases sales.  Wiley just went up the list a bit on my favorite publishers.

Thanks!

Sounds promising. I'm just wondering when I'll have time for this one, too :) ???
