Re: IT Security Books

I have another one:

Analyzing Computer Security by Charles P.Pfleeger

The book covers “hot button” issues, such as authentication failures, network interception, and denial of service. You also gain new insight into broader themes, including risk analysis, usability, trust, privacy, ethics, and forensics. One step at a time, the book systematically helps you develop the problem-solving skills needed to protect any information infrastructure.

As always find out more on http://pentestmag.com/ in section reviews.

The Great news is that you can receive one copy for Free! Just buy annual subscription to PenTest and contact us. We will take care of everything for you.

Enjoy reading!

Re: IT Security Books

I have the mother of all the books:

TCP/IP Illustrated, 2nd edition

It is very comprehensive, it attacks all kind of subject, every chapter (eg TCP) talks about security, and the last chapter is only about security.
I have it, and it is the next book to read.

Re: IT Security Books

I was checking the table of contents last day, I was really happy to see that there is a sub section of Attacks regarding every protocol, exactly 'mother of all the books'  ;D

Re: IT Security Books

I'm assuming he means the TCP/IP book and not the pentest mag spam.

I have been reading the Syngress titlehttp://www.amazon.com/Basics-Hacking-Penetration-Testing-Syngress/dp/1597496553/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1323962441&sr=8-1

Really good foundational book for pen testing. It is my first attempt at a kindle book as well. Takes a minute to get used to, but I think I may go w/ Kindle books moving forward. Not to hijack the thread, but does anybody have an opinion on eReaders vs. paper books?

I have the first edition.  I've read it twice and I still continue to refer back to it after twelve years.  It is the best technical book I've ever read.

I hope the 2nd edition is as strong, but the bar is very high.  The original author, W. Richard Stevens, passed away in 1999.

Re: IT Security Books

@ Seen - my bad, I didn't mention. I was referring to "TCP/IP Illustrated, 2nd edition", it looks really promising.

and right now I am going through "Nmap Network Scanning: The Official Nmap Project Guide" it is beyond my expectations, the book is not just about using nmap, it is well organized. I am learning a lot from it.

@ l33t5h@rk - I have tried reading books in e-format but it's not for me. I prefer reading paper books, it helps to stay off the screen for some time and flexibility of noting some points etc.

Yeah, I'm going to finish the one I'm on and move to the next. I have an original Kindle and I'm pretty impressed w/ it. It is better than the kindle app for the android tablet I have, just seems better designed. Tough to go away from paper though, I hear what you're saying.
