UNIX System Security: A Guide for Users and System Administrators

Because the UNIX system was originally designed by programmers for use by other programmers, it was used in an environment of open cooperation where security was of minimal concern. Now that its use has spread to universities, businesses, and government, the confidential and sensitive nature of the data stored on UNIX systems has made the security of these systems of paramount importance.

Despite all the technical papers and workshops on UNIX security, this book is unique. "UNIX System Security" is the first up-to-date source to provide the UNIX system user or administrator with the information needed to protect the data and system from unauthorized use. By following the procedures described in this book and making use of the C programs and shell scripts provided as examples, you can protect your UNIX system from most attackers.

The author begins by examining four high-profile breaches of UNIX security as illustrations of how a UNIX system can be attacked. He then provides the information necessary to protect against these forms of attack, and offers the tools that can be used to do so.
