So in essence you would rather pay 1500 dollars to get the same information as
is in the books? Personally, I'd stick with the books and the lists, spend
time examing advisories and bugs that have been posted to the net.
Some of the better Security books would be:
Practical Unix Security (Vol 2 should be released soon, if its not already)
Building Internet Firewalls
UNIX System Administration Handbook (sections on security and logging).
Then there are quite a bit of documents and papers on the net.
http://www.cs.purdue.edu/coast is a great resource. They have sections on
security analysis, auditing, and forensics (the latter is quite interesting but
out of my league). They also have a rich archive of the popular security tools
on the net (cops, satan, tripwire, tcpwrappers, tiger, iss, logdaemon, and
a host of logging and auditing tools).
If one thinks this information isn't good enough, perhaps they arent sure what
they are looking for.
