Foil those Hackers!

A valuable reference with a bit too much filler.

In our modern world, hackers abound. These people have nothing better to do than try to steal, maliciously modify or just plain damage your sensitive data. Therefore, you need to be concerned with securing your data, which means that you need this book. This book describes a variety of methods for securing data, such as the encrypting file system, using smart cards, IPSEC and so on. Each of the chapters was well thought out and does a fine job of describing the topic at hand, making it easy to understand.

Pros: Comprehensive coverage
Cons:
Too much filler material
Verdict: A must have reference for network administrators

There is a little too much "filler material" though; for example there are two half-page pictures of smart cards and 8 pages of the default file permissions for Windows 2000. Overall, if you administer a Windows 2000 network and you want to keep your data safe, then you need to get and read this book.
