O'Reilly would like to welcome NYCBUG to their User Group program and has released their first title for our review.   While only one was directly BSD related, it was still a very generous gesture.  

All books in our 'Library',  are available for any member to 'check-out'.  In return, it would be nice to have a written review.

The Complete FreeBSD, 4th Edition
Documentation from the Source
By Greg Lehey
April 2003 
ISBN: 0-596-00516-4

This new edition, covering version 5 of FreeBSD, is now available through O'Reilly Community Press. It is an eminently practical guidebook that explains not only how to get a computer up and running with the FreeBSD operating system, but also how to turn it into a highly functional and secure server that can host large numbers of users and disks, support remote access, and provide web service, mail service, and other key parts of the Internet infrastructure

Linux Security Cookbook
By Daniel J. Barrett, Richard Silverman, Robert G. Byrnes
June 2003 
ISBN: 0-596-00391-9

The Linux Security Cookbook includes real solutions to a wide range of targeted problems, such as sending encrypted email within Emacs, restricting access to network services at particular times of day, firewalling a webserver, preventing IP spoofing, setting up key-based SSH authentication, and much more. With over 150 ready-to-use scripts and configuration files, this unique book helps administrators secure their systems without having to look up specific syntax.

The NYCBUG Library messages will continue to be sent to the list until the Library web pages are finished.
