Book Review: "Apache Security" By O'Reilly Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Source: Wasc - Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Documentation I've just completed my review on "Apache Security" by O'Reilly."This book was written by Ivan Ristic, the author of the popular Apache web application firewall module mod_security. Naturally this book does discuss how to use mod_security to harden your system, but I'm happy to report it isn't his main area of focus. One of the first things that I do while reviewing a book is to find all the things that the text doesn't cover that it *really* should have and point them out in my review. Simply put this book has everything, and I do mean everything. Here's the low down on a per chapter basis."

Read the entire review below:

This brief chapter discusses common security terminology and concepts, and touches on Web Application Architecture and how apache handles it. This chapter also includes a useful Apache Hardening Matrix outlining the various security measures that should be turned on depending on your stage of deployment.
