Linux Network Security, my first book, was published in March of 2005 by Charles River Media, and has been receiving very favourable reviews on Amazon. As the name suggests, the book covers the subject of securing Linux systems, particularly in a network setting, and is intended for both system administrators and home users alike.

Topics covered include:

More general system administration issues are also discussed, such as: sudo, user/group management, PAM, ext2 attributes, partitioning, limiting user resources, file permissions, and chroot environments.

The table of contents (in pdf format) is available here

The accompanying CD-Rom containing Open Source tools discussed in the book, as well as complete IPTables rulesets for packeting filtering, NAT, and routing.
