protocols and authentication proxy using features like AAA with both TACACS+ and RADIUS. These configuration examples combined with Part VIII on “Virtual Private Networks (VPN)” complement one another. Yet as mentioned before, the book was designed to allow individuals to either research a sub-set of the features in a router or read the entire book itself. Thus in the middle of what appears to be two clear parts that would naturally fit together, Part VI and VIII, Richard places Part VII on “Detecting and Preventing Attacks,” which demonstrates this feature covering areas of Intrusion Detection Systems, DoS Protection and Logging Events. The concept that attacks could come in any form, but commonly from external interaction, is widely known. Seeing this section of the book only goes further to enforce and emphasize the importance of securing routers to protect the network. As anyone in the information technology industry is aware it is important to protect the environment and to say that this book could not help in that protection is a clear understatement. I believe that anyone from the “small business jack-of-all-trades IT person” to the “corporate IT network specialist” could benefit in some manner from this book with the explanations and examples presented. I believe this will be an often-used book in any network individual’s library.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
