Format: Paperback
The problem all computer books have is that they are almost out of date before they reach the bookstore as things change so quickly and unfortunately this 10 year old book, although okay for the casual reader who may want an understanding of security generally, is a dinosaur concentrating on old technologies, orange book concepts and not even touching on modern problems like distributed denial of service, e-mail viruses etc. Very disappointing for an O'Reilly book. An update is long overdue.

This book is a more introductory, and a more theoretical than something like "Practical UNIX & Internet Security, 2nd Edition" (By Simson Garfinkel & Gene Spafford, published by O'Reilly & Assoc.), but it is still a vital book on the topic.
Definitely a must-have for the bookshelf of any Unix or Security administrator, and a good idea for anyone to read if they are working in the IT field.

Looking for that one book that offers basic security principals, maybe things you missed in other books ? This book offers the very BEST in the basics of Security.. Recommended as a starter book for CISSP, CISA, or any Information Security related self study.

While Computer Security Basics is slightly outdated, it nonetheless provides a good introduction to computer security.
It gives a great overview of the DoD Orange Book, but the Orange Book is now obsolete and is replaced by the Common Criteria.
Hopefully, the authors Russell & Gangemi are worlking on an update, as they are excellent writers.

Computer Security Basics provides an excellent reference for anyone interested in computer and network security, from the newbie to the practicing computer security professional. Unfortunately, it is rapidly becoming outdated..
