Additional Security References

Government publications describe in detail the standards, policies, methods, and terminology associated with computer security. Other publications listed here are guides for system administrators of UNIX systems and are useful in gaining a thorough understanding of UNIX security problems and solutions.

The web also provides resources. In particular, the CERT web site alerts companies and users to security holes in the software. The SANS Institute offers training, an extensive glossary of terms, and an updated list of top threats from the Internet.
