Description & Coverage
Description:

The explosive growth and deployment of networking technology poses many security challenges to networking professionals including network administrators and information systems managers. Often, network administrators and managers learn about specific tools and techniques that are applicable to specific systems or situations only, and hence, have a great deal of difficulty in applying their knowledge of security when a technology, a system, or a situation changes.

Network Security, Administration and Management: Advancing Technology and Practice identifies the latest technological solutions, practices and principles on network security while exposing possible security threats and vulnerabilities of contemporary software, hardware, and networked systems. This book is a collection of current research and practices in network security and administration to be used as a reference by practitioners as well as a text by academicians and trainers.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Backup and Disaster Recovery
  • Email Security Services
  • Fundamentals of Network Security Administration
  • Licensing and Key Management Services
  • Proxy and Internet Security Acceleration (ISA) Servers
  • Public Key Infrastructure
  • Security Administration of Local and Wide Area Networks
  • User Authentication Administration
Reviews and Testimonials

Software security is becoming more complex and necessary as everyone makes more use of network resources. Members of the software security community frequently state that security must be built in, not added on, and this book does a good job explaining why. [...] Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals.
