Slashdot | Getting Started in Network Security?

Postby nafri » Mon May 26, 2003 2:33 pm

on the slashdot an interesting thread on netwrok security has started on 25 may 2003. check ... 26&tid=172

the thread is becoming a good reference point (interesting books, mailing lists, websites, etc. have been mentioned), as well as generating debate on good practices in network security.

for a pakistani context, and as a starting point on our PLUC forum, it would be interesting to learn if systems are updated and patches are applied in corporate and academic settings here.

it would also be interesting to learn how the top-management in pakistani organisations view network security. and how sysadmins, our heroes, deal with it.

I concur with LinuxFreak, there's no such thing as a 'unbreakable network' .. in my opinion the most secure network is the one that is powered off :lol:

btw, is not bad that bad too :D

I work for a small company. We use Smooth Wall GPL (free version) on a computer hard disk to act as a Firewall for our network. My boss's laptop has Zone Alarm, but that laptop has Windows XP.

I am a database programmer. So I am not knowledgeable about Linux and Security :? . I am learning.
