"Robert Toxen, author of Real World Linux Security: Intrusion Prevention, Detection and Recovery, boasts an impressive resume as a writer, developer, creator, and software architect. Join Toxen and Cameron Laird for a lively discussion on security, Linux hacking, open-source development, and more. Runs December 5 through 7."
"Robert Toxen's new book, Real World Linux Security: Intrusion Prevention, Detection and Recovery, just appeared on store shelves three weeks ago. Open-source luminaries Eric Raymond and Steve Bourne have already praised this "practical, hands-on guide to hardening your Linux system", as the foreword describes it. Toxen, now president and CTO of Fly-By-Day Consulting, Inc., sports a colorful professional resume with an abundance of highlights: creator of the Sunset Computer, one of the 162 recognized developers of Berkeley UNIX, one of the four developers who did the initial port of UNIX to the Silicon Graphics hardware, software architect of the Netgear ND508 and ND520, as well as the Kennedy Space Center PC space shuttle payload document network, and author of UNIX Review magazine's "The Problem Solver" column. We'll be talking with Bob this Tuesday through Thursday, 5-7 December 2000, on security, Linux hacking, open-source development, and more."
"Bob, you're proud of your book--I know that already from our conversations. How was it working with Prentice-Hall? Who should be reading Real World Linux Security beside Unix sysads with specific responsibility for security?"
