Aims and Scope

Internet and Intranet Security (Second Edition) introduces and discusses security technologies that are available today to provide Internet and intranet security in terms of access control and communication security services.

Target Audience

The book has been written to serve the needs of computer and network professionals that have interest in understanding, establishing, and supporting secure TCP/IP-based networks. I also hope that the book provides sufficient background to help security professionals propose approaches to secure commercial applications for the Internet. The book is tutorial in nature but still requires some familiarity with the fundamentals of computer networks and distributed systems, as well as cryptography and the use of cryptographic protocols in networked and distributed environments.
