Book Description

This book shows you how to build a secure, reliable and clean network from the ground up, with optimizations and security, using RedHat Linux 7.x as a base OS.

This book presents everyhting you need to know clearly, concisely, and in an extreemly well organized fashion. Each chapter is well organized starting with an introduction on what the contents of the chapter are, why the items in the chapter have to be covered and then a complete description of how to implement the specific features.

The chapters are in logical order, so you always know the order of things. HOWTO's are mostly written in isolation from each one to another, not the chapters of this book: they are consistent and follow a well organized flow.

If you want to take advantage of Linux's versatility as a server operating system, and do it in the most secure and efficient manner, you can find no better book than this one. In addition to operating system configuration there are many chapters individually dedicated to installing and configuring specific Linux server applications such as Sendmail, SQL server, Apache, BIND, and many more.
