    Post Books

    Hey, I got about 1000 dollars with of book cert's and I want to use them before I lose them. I was wondering if you guys could give me some good book titles under these certain categories.

    Cryptography, Security Analysts, TCP/IP books, or just some other general books you have read and think are worth mentioning.

    Thanks for your time.

    Just noticed you have a book section, delete this thread at will.

    There are alot of threads out there already that have to do with this, but the biggest reason that I am replying is to let you know you can delete the thread by selecting edit, and then once that screen loads, selecting delete.

    Might want to check out :

    Hacking Exposed (Mcclue, Scambray, Kurtz)
    Computer Networks (Andrew Tanenbaum) : IMHO, a very good book that I don't see mentioned terribly often, goes through all layers of the TCP/IP stack, from local loops to T1's, to application layers stuff like encryption (including descriptions of the DES algorithm) and the mundane like web browsing.
    TCP/IP Illustrated (Stevens)

    There is only one constant, one universal, it is the only real truth: causality. Action. Reaction. Cause and effect...There is no escape from it, we are forever slaves to it. Our only hope, our only peace is to understand it, to understand the 'why'. 'Why' is what separates us from them, you from me. 'Why' is the only real social power, without it you are powerless.

    hacking exposed

    i would also agree with nebulus200 about hacking exposed

    im reading it at the moment, tells you everything you need to know and it it about 700-800 pages long, in small print.
    but it is very informative and comes with a selection of tools on a cd.highly recomend it.

    the lates version also covers wirless networks and wap

    Hacking Exposed. Obvious choice and I must say the big red book is worth a read.
    Check out IRC and ask around, many of the guys there will give you more exact titles.

    To anybody else check out your library for some oldies but goldies.

    Was searching to find more info on this book to see what the opinion was on it.

    I checked the 2nd edition out of the college library over Holiday break and so far it is very good.
