Host Hardening and Intrusion Detection -- The Open Source Way
by Thomas Weeks   
Security consists of multi-tiered hardening and monitoring 
that exist as outer shells of protection, and more central, inner 
The outer shells consist of systems such as router configurations, 
firewalls, and Network Intrusion Detection Systems (or NIDS), which 
form common methods for securing and watching entire LANs or WANs. 
This article examines and illustrates the implementation of the inner 
shells, or host-centric layers of server security.

Wireless Security Essentials: Defending Mobile Systems from Data Piracy
Book Review by Ben Rothke
Writing a book on wireless security is like writing a book on safe 
skydiving -- if you want the safety and security, just don’t do it.  
Hard-wired (cabled) networks have been around for decades and they 
are still for the most part insecure.  Wireless networking 
(focusing on 802.11), which has been around for only a few years, 
is clearly an insecure technology.  With that, there is currently 
not a lot to write about when it comes to effective wireless security.
