More to chew on...
Having thousands of computer system security articles available to read on the
web, this book is designed to consolidate some of the most important
information on several of the common security issues facing/concerning/
plaguing both users and administrators. Named after, and based on, Linux From
Scratch, HLFS is a book that provides the reader with a foundation of
understanding in respect to security, that can be used as a base for further
study and design. Part of the process in teaching this will be to build a
hardened system step-by-step.
This book describes in detail problems with programming languages, privilege
access control for software applications and users, cryptography, and what to
do with this technology. The advantages to reading this book would be in
having an understanding of security from the lowest level, and being able to
use all that information in constructing an entire system.
