Teaching computer security principles via hands-on activities

Unique among computer security texts, the Second Edition of the Computer Security: A Hands-on Approach builds on the author’s long tradition of teaching this complex subject through a hands-on approach. For each security principle, the book uses a series of hands-on activities to help explain the principle; readers can touch, play with, and experiment with the principle, instead of just reading about it. The hands-on activities are based on the author’s widely adopted
SEED Labs, which have been used by over 1000 institutes in more than 65 countries.
