RE: Crypto Book Recommendations?

I assume you have included 'Applied Cryptography' by Bruce Schneier. This is
a good starting point.

He has had subsequent books, also maybe of interest.

Does anyone have any good recommendations for books on Cryptography
especially geared towards
beginners?  I have a few titles in mind already, I just don't want to leave
out any good one's if I
can help it.  Thanks

Murad, et al...

Your best investment comes from New Riders publishing.  They have a series
of books focused on security mostly from and or by/overseen Stephen
Northcutt.  Network Intrusion Detection will teach you all about reading
"the wire".  Intrusion Signatures and Analysis will help you learn more and
Network Perimeter Security is a good primer...

Lots of luck.

Back when you were a security nipper playing with netstat and gurgling =
at the sight of portscans on your fisher price server, which book did =
you use to learn security basics from?
I've inherited a 50 node network and am just getting into learning how =
to secure it.
Any suggestions gratefully accepted.
