# My company started out with a primer from Brent Chapman
# (info @

# issues surrounding firewalls and security in general... His course
# also did some basic IP protocol theory which was interesting
# as well... Brent can customize a course for you I'm sure...
Thanks for the recommendation, Matt!
Anyone who is interested in the tutorial should send email to
COM". You'll get back an automatic response
with a description of the tutorial and a schedule and registration form
for upcoming public presentations of the tutorial. Private in-house
presentations of the tutorial (with emphasis customized to suit your
interests and environment) are also available; please contact me for

A number of folks have written with the impression that the "primer"
Matt mentions is a book or paper of some sort. It's not; he was referring
to the tutorial. We do not make the tutorial notebook (which is about
200 pages long, and includes copies of the tutorial overheads, plus a
collection of key firewalls papers) available seperately, outside of
