Title: Nessus Network Auditing (Jay Beale's Open Source Security)
Publisher: Syngress
Authors: Renaud Deraison, Noam Rathaus, HD Moore, Raven Alder, George Theall, Andy Johnston, Jimmy Alderson
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Invaluable resource for an excellent tool

This is the third book in Jay Beale's Open Source Security Series from Syngress Publishing and it is every bit as good as the first two. It certainly doesn't hurt to have the founder of the Nessus Project be one of the leading contributors to the book.

The book begins with an overview of the basic concept of vulnerability assessment and how a scan can be used to proactively detect holes and protect the network. After a brief introduction to the founding of the Nessus Project and the birth of the Nessus software the book goes into comprehensive detail about how to install, configure, administer, and employ the full functionality of Nessus to secure and protect your network.

Some of the most valuable information is contained in the chapters describing how to interpret the results of a Nessus scan and how to handle false positives. The book also provides information about the Nessus Knowledge Base and the Nessus User Community - two valuable resources for further information. The enclosed CD contains full versions of Nessus, Ethereal and Snort as well as NeWT, a standalone security scanner for Windows based on Nessus.

Nessus is an excellent tool and this book is an invaluable resource in helping you get the most out of it.
