Pros: Exhaustive information on ssh, very concise
Cons: Exhaustive information, it does cover aspects I never cared to know about :)

It's a bit of a tough call to review a book which has a review of the first edition already done on this site.

It's an amazing read that also covers aspects of tectia, the commercial product by the original guy behind ssh.

Not having read the first edition I can't say how detailed the implementation details have been described, but the book has certainly grown. It now features a whopping 645 pages (including the index), and I certainly haven't missed any info about ssh, or found that it lacked detail anywhere.

A great read - once again.
