TCP/IP. And Google is always your friend. Good luck!

Network Security Howto
Good suggestion jdenny. Gendalf: I started a thread along these lines and got some good posts here . You will find that there is a wealth of information already posted on this site by other members (you can do a search from the Home page as I have learned), and if you cannot find information already posted on your questions, just post a new thread in the appropriate forum and any of our knowledgeable AO members will be more than happy to help you out as much as they can.

Alright here is a site that I like to go to and read about Network Security and get the latest information, plus they have a link for beginners.
Also if you need any books IM me and I will hook you up.

TCP/IP is a good starter, you can find some reading material http://lib.daemon.am/Books/. Also if you are interested may I suggest http://safari.oreilly.com I am a member there and they have some great books. 880 to be exact, ranging from programming to network security.

Also, one of my favorites is the Security Focus website found here . They have some great "datasheets" that help you to understand the different software and hardware mechanisms at work in the Security Realm. There is also the bugtraq mailing list to which you can subscribe. You also may want to look at taking a class or two depending on how you learn best - instructor-led or self-taught. There are some certifications listed on the AO Home Page as well. Hope this helps you.
