"...if you are looking to learn a little about computer security and the theory behind it, then this is a good read. Being that I work in the Information Security field, this book will become a fixture on my desk. In fact, I will probably quote from it often."
-- Kale Feelhaver, MacCompanion

"While not a technical "how to" manual, this book does a great job in dealing with technical issues and concepts...If you're trying to educate someone who hasn't kept up with the topic of computer security, this would be a very good starting point."
-- Thomas Duff, Duffbert's Random Musings

"Computer Security Basics reads like a textbook. If you’re taking Computer Security 101, or just have an interest in computer history, cryptology, or government security standards – if you’d like to know how viruses and worms work, or the vulnerabilities of TCP and UDP – this book will meet your needs. On the other hand, veteran IT professionals will probably find this book too basic – if you already know the difference between DES, AES, and RSA, you’ll probably find this book covers ground you traveled some time ago."
-- Ken Rogers, Greater Cleveland PC Users Group

"Aimed at beginners interested in learning the fundamentals of computer security, this book proves itself as a valuable guide that will take beginners on a journey through diverse areas of this challenging topic."
-- Mirko Zorz, Help Net Security
