Skip It July 11 2006
By SecurityReader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Nothing you can't find in half the time online.

Context missing.

Skip this one. Your money can go to better use.

My mom always said look it up in the dictionary. July 11 2006
By D. Bushmiller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My reply would be, " If I knew how to look it up, I don't need a dictionary" Yes you can find all this stuff on the web even Rob has this book on the web. BUT you cannot get the feel for security terms by just defining one word. Take the time get the dead-tree version. It is worth the few dollars.

Handy But Not Very Exciting Oct. 8 2007
By Dan McKinnon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
'Dictionary of Information Security' is exactly that, a 200+ page dictionary of technical terms relating to computer security. There's no way to sugarcoat this and make it sound anything more than it is. If you are in the information security field you might find this useful to have on your shelf by your side or as a refresher for those technical tidbits but that's about it. Not a teaching tool, just a short reference book that does what it says it does. For that it gets a thumbs up from me.

A clearly-written and accurate resource July 14 2006
By David Harley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
You can find almost anything online, including a great deal of security information and even more misinformation. If you need information on a security topic you're unfamiliar with, you can, of course, scour through google results and hope what you're reading is accurate. Or you can use a solid and dependable resource from an author who writes well and knows his subject in depth, like Slade's book. Highly recommended.

Good, but the info is free Sept. 21 2006
By Katie Barlow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
On one side, this is a good book.

On the other side, ALL of the definitions are easily available on the net for free.

At google, just enter DEFINE:word to be defined, and wallah, you have the definition.

Not sure why anyone would want to pay for this book, unless they had a long flight where they would want to read.
