Additional Reading About Computer Security

In addition to these books, the security sections of the Windows NT 4.0 and the NetWare 4.1 documentation are excellent references about how to configure both network operating systems in a secure manner. This information is especially important because both NT and NetWare install by default in a nonsecure setup.
