    Firewall Books

    Hello All,

    Can anyone recommend any good firewall books ? I'm looking more for a book that explains the underlining theory and concepts of firewalls in general and how they work, instead of just a book about a certain firewall and how to set it up?

    Thanks for all useful posts.

    In response to your question, and I might as well be the first to suggest this,
    Firewalls for Dummies is as good as any to start with, use it as a reference, or, as I did,read it through, first though, select a firewall, and get it up and running. Read about them later !!!

    Well, there is the traditional Build Internet Firewalls by O'Reilly which is pretty good. There is also a new one that I've been considering that might be worthwhile to peruse (even to look at -- it is a bit of brick tho'): The Best Damn Firewall Book Period.

    Well, you're thinking too narrow then. Don't think in pure book format. Use google for terms like "tutorial+firewall". You'd be surprised how much legitimately free material is out there if you just look.

    Why not join a newsgroup or mailing list which is specifically for firewalls ?

    Joining a newsgroup and mailing list might just be a good idea.

    Just like how MsM has suggested using Google and other search engines can be quite good.

    Note: Right now I can't remember the name[s] of the newsgroup[s] or mailing list[s] but once I find them I will post them.
