Inside Network Perimeter Security, the Book

I produced and co-authored Inside Network Perimeter Security, which is a practical guide to designing, deploying, and maintaining network defenses. This book is unusual in that it has a consistent phrasing and style, yet it consolidates the experience of more than a dozen information security professionals working together as a team of writers and reviewers.

The first edition of the book was very well received, which motivated us to update and expand its text. As a result of this effort, the second edition of the book became available in stores in March, 2005.
