In our modern world, hackers abound. These people have nothing better
to do than try to steal, maliciously modify or just plain damage your
sensitive data. Therefore, you need to be concerned with securing your
data, which means that you need this book. This book describes a variety
of methods for securing data, such as the encrypting file system, using
smart cards, IPSEC and so on. Each of the chapters was well thought out
and does a fine job of describing the topic at hand, making it easy to
Pros: Comprehensive coverage
Cons: Too much filler material
Verdict: A must have reference for network administrators
There is a little too much "filler material" though; for example there
are two half-page pictures of smart cards and 8 pages of the default file
permissions for Windows 2000. Overall, if you administer a Windows 2000
network and you want to keep your data safe, then you need to get and
read this book.
