Learning Linux Security for Network Plus Test


Hi I am new to the board. I need some help.
I am currently studying for my Network Plus test and all the books I have are pretty lite on Linux Network Tools and Linux Security in general. I am just starting to understand and move around in the Linux file system so I know I understand some things.
My question is...Does anybody have any links or suggest any books for a newbies as far as Linux Security goes ?

Any help would be great. After I finish my Network Plus and A + tests I want to go for my Linux Plus and possibly shoot for LPIC.

Patrick

I just googled for a few Linux security tutorials and have the following links for you. (I don't know if these will help or not.)

There is no order. I just worked down the google page. and picked out the 'best' (IMNSHO) ones.

http://www.tutorom.com/courses/430/Linux-Security.htm <----<<< This looks like a very comprehensive tutorial.

For books:
Maximum Linux Security (good newbie book but slightly outdated)
Linux Security Cookbook
Network Security Hacks (cross-platform)

Great Apache Guide:
Preventing Web Attacks with Apache

Also Unspawn has a great set of links in the Security References thread near the top of the forum.

Thanks for the infommation. I have been studying like crazy and I am a-liitle frustrated by the lack of Linux/Unix information in my study aids for the test. I am sure when I am done I will have a better grasp of Linux Network Security when I go to take my Linux + test after I am done with Network +.
Anyway, thanks again.
