I guess this depends on what level of security you are interested in. CSO,
Security Manager, Architect, Analyst, etc... If you are writing software you
will need some, or lots of programming skills in all areas you mentioned
plus some others. If you're mainly the architect for a network, TCP/IP and
other protocols as well as web design will be necessary. There is lots
involved with security and it will all depend on what level of security you
are looking for.

Hi everybody,

I want to get the ideas of you and let this  general
topic to get in the place on the list. 

What do you think, what are the basic programming
knowledge-skills (background,algoritm,languages etc)
needed by someone who wants to be a security
professional?

There is an article at securityfocus talking about the
tcp-ip knowledge requierments. Maybe if there would be
a series of articles talking about main subjects
(OS,programming,protocols,hardware,coffee making etc)
on securityfocus or somewhere they will be very
usefull for newbies.

Thanks alot
