Well I can speak up for one as someone who doens't have a 
huge knowledge base. So I would also be most interested in 
any sort of pointers on starting out as a security admin. I'm 
not completely ignorant but it is only recently that I have 
become responsible for security of more than a small home 
network. (In this case a W2K3 web server and also the office 
network). Much of background in security is theoretical 
learnt during my postgrad year so real world info is what I'm after.

Apologies if the list wasnt the correct place for this post.

Regards,

Andrew

Hello,

First appologies for having trouble doing something simple 
as sending 
e-mail. Evolution is new for me.......

Now I'm on this list, I think I could ask you people a question (or 
two)....

Does a good security-officer have to know everything about 
every hole? 
I myself don't think so, but where do people start?

If I see lists and forums about network-security it seems that 
everybody knows a lot and has a huge reference base. Is this true?

I want to learn more about security stuff, but I can't find 
the real 
basics to build upon anywhere. When there are posts on lists they 
presume that everybody has a certain knowledge level and 
are aware of 
best practices. But is this true?

Just because there are discussions, it seems that there is not one 
overall and central way of keeping track of evolving issues. How do 
people keep track easily with up to date best practices and not get 
distracted by "old" advisory?

Any comments are welcome.

Aschwin Wesselius
