Chapter 2. Thinking Secure: Security Philosophy and Physical Concerns

IN THIS CHAPTER

Although this book concentrates primarily on security issues at a software level, physical security is still an important issue, especially if you have or will have a publicly accessible computer or network. Publicly accessible machines are just as prone—or perhaps even more prone—to physical attack than they are to remote attacks. This chapter addresses issues involving machine location and physical access, physical security devices, physical network considerations, and network hardware. These issues primarily apply to administrators attempting to secure one or more machines as a job function.
