Foundations of Information Security provides readers with fundamental knowledge of information security in both theoretical and practical aspects. Best selling author Jason Andress provides the basic knowledge needed to understand the key concepts of confidentiality, integrity, and availability, and then dives into practical applications of these ideas in the areas of operational, physical, network, application, and operating system security. Each chapter explores one main security concept, lists scenarios in which the concept is applicable, and discusses the implementation of that concept in detail, often by going over rival models or strategies.
