About the Author
Rick Lehtinen started his career in electronic communications, from installing two-way radios to building television stations and satellite uplink facilities. Frequent contribution of articles to the trade press led to a position as an editor at Broadcast Engineering magazine, as well as a sister publication, Video Systems, which was followed by nationwide travel promoting desktop video production as "Dr. Video".After relocating to Phoenix, Lehtinen researched and produced marketing information for the semiconductor industry. This lead to a survey of computers and networking, which field eventually became a passion. Lehtinen financed his studies by teaching and writing, and is on the adjunct faculty of several community colleges and vocational schools. As a course writer for the Cisco Network Academy, he has worked with materials from conception through post-production, including learner assessment and the creation of annoying multiple choice questions.

His hobbies include spending time with his family, playing the tuba, and writing about complimentary/alternative medical technologies.

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.
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.
