The Internet has a reputation for a lack of security.  Those books which
mention security on the Internet generally suggest setting up a firewall
machine in order to protect yourself, but stop short of giving anything
resembling details of how to do such a thing.  Cheswick and Bellovin not only
give practical suggestions for firewall construction, they also address other
aspects of Internet security, as well.
 
Part one gives a basic background, both of security, and of TCP/IP.  If you
didn't think you needed security before, you will after reading chapter two. 
Part two details the construction of firewall gateways, as well as
authentication, tools, traps, and cracking tools for use in testing the
integrity of your system.  Part three discusses attacks, and the logging and
analysis, thereof.  The book also looks at legal aspects, secure communication
over insecure links, resources and various helpful information.
 
Although the book deals specifically with TCP/IP, the concepts, which are the
parts stressed, are applicable to any network-connected systems.  This is
probably destined to become one of the security classics within its specialized
field.
