Book Review: End-to-End Network Security, by Omar Santos


By Stephen Northcutt

The author, Omar Santos, must be a very smart person. I did not find any technical problems in End-to-End Network Security. However, this book, unlike the majority of the Cisco Press books simply is not useful to most people. They tend to spend less than a page on any one technology or topic and never get down to the nuts and bolts. If you are an intermediate to expert security practitioner and you want to page through the book to find security topics that you do not know about, that is a great use of this book. However, you will then have to research that topic with another book or Internet resource.
