System administrators need to stay ahead of new security vulnerabilities that leave their networks exposed every day. A firewall and an intrusion detection systems IDS are two important weapons in that fight, enabling you to proactively deny access and monitor network traffic for signs of an attack.

Linux Firewalls discusses the technical details of the iptables firewall and the Netfilter framework that are built into the Linux kernel, and it explains how they provide strong filtering, Network Address Translation NATstate tracking, and application layer inspection capabilities that rival many commercial tools. You’ll learn how to deploy iptables as an IDS with psad and fwsnort and how to build a strong, passive authentication layer around iptables with fwknop.

Concrete examples illustrate concepts such as firewall log analysis and policies, passive network authentication and authorization, exploit packet traces, Snort ruleset emulation, and more with coverage of these topics: Single Packet Authorization SPA —Tools for visualizing iptables logs Perl and C code snippets offer practical examples that will help you to maximize your deployment of Linux firewalls.

If you’re responsible for keeping a network secure, you’ll find Linux Firewalls invaluable in your attempt to understand attacks and use iptables—along with psad and fwsnort—to detect and even prevent compromises. Read more Read less.

Make no mistake, this book is on what it says it’s about “Attack Detection and Response with iptables, psad, and fwsnort” it contains very little information about setting up iptables to block unwanted external traffic.

Sure there are whole books miichael that topic but there is no need for a page book on micahel, that just seems to be the size furewalls books have to be in order to get published.

Which means other books on iptables are probably going to about pages of fluff. Incidentally this book actually only spends about the first 35 pages describing that, the remainder is fantastic, useful, well written information about doing the things that make iptables truly useful. In addition to being comprehensive and useful this book happens to be well written, far better than most technical books.

If you’re thinking about buying a book on Linux firewalls, make it this one, but if you’re not already familiar with iptables expect to read the first 35 pages, then a couple online tutorials and then come back to this book. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Who needs a specialist distro or Vyatta? Get this book and you’ll be up and running in no time. I thought the content was presented in a logical manner, concise, clear and very informative. From IPTables novice to expert, there is a lot of good information in this book.

If you want to understand the inner-workings of firewall based distros or products like Vyatta – or Brocade, whatever they call themselves these days – this is a good start. I certainly recommend this book to anyone looking to get into the security field as well. Information can be found Online, but the book is an easy reference, and brings the Linux firewalls all together as a guide to the various firewalls.
