well-versed in the secrecy business and responsible for

Each of the Internet application
chapters has a section on security
issues, and the section on Internet
information about hacking related people, sites, and resources.
This section describes Internet security issues related to
the underlying network itself.
Internet security analysis is broken down into a consideration
of threats and corresponding defenses. For most threats there is
defence. The short course advises you to ensure you always
use a firewall, virus
and to use encryption when
necessary. The following sections provide more information.
