Book Review:

This book shows you how to build a secure, reliable and clean network from the ground up, with optimizations and security, using RedHat Linux 7.x as a base OS.

This book presents everything you need to know clearly, concisely, and in an extreemly well organized fashion.

Each chapter is well organized starting with an introduction on what the contents of the chapter are, why the items in the chapter have to be covered and then a complete description of how to implement the specific features.

The chapters are in logical order, so you always know the order of things. HOWTO's are mostly written in isolation from each one to another, not the chapters of this book: they are consistent and follow a well organized flow.

I used to spend time searching through hundreds of web pages for relevant, consistent and well organized info to configure my network. HOWTOs are nice, but you never know which one to apply to your situation and in what order to do things in the big picture. Home grown web pages become obsolete quickly, and newsgroups have a low signal to noise ratio making it hard to find what you really look for. This book has the answers I needed.

This book is an excellent reference for building a secure Linux Server. From file permissions to installing Apache, bind in Secure manner, this book has it all. Covers Tripwire, sXid, and many other tools to keep linux servers secure. Overall, i give it 5 stars.

Most of the Linux books I have read before tell you what to do to administer a Linux server, but they assume that you know how to do it. Gerhard Mourani tells you in detail what to do, how to do it, and why to do it. I have learned a great deal not only about Linux server applications, but about the Linux operating system itself.

If you want to take advantage of Linux's versatility as a server operating system, and do it in the most secure and efficient manner, you can find no better book than this one. In addition to operating system configuration there are many chapters individually dedicated to installing and configuring specific Linux server applications such as Sendmail, SQL server, Apache, BIND, and many more.

One disclaimer: If you are looking for information on how to build a Linux workstation or cool Gnome desktop, this is not the book for you. It is focus is exclusively building Linux application servers.
