Books for Topics: Firewalls and Enterprise Security
I have searched for textbooks for this course with two conflicting goals in mind, comprehensive, quality content, and reasonable prices. I think that I have found a good balance with the following texts. I am including links to the books at Amazon as I believe them to be significantly cheaper then having the campus bookstore order them. You are free to purchase the books anywhere you preferr.
