Computerworld - TCS Announces Trusted Linux
Trusted Computer Solutions Inc. has announced that it is developing a product called TCS Trusted Linux, a multilevel-secure version of the Linux operating system.
Slated for beta testing this fall, the product will consist of software, hardware and firmware designed to enforce a unified security policy. It will be certified under the U.S. Common Criteria Evaluation and Validation Scheme at Evaluation Assurance Level 4. Herndon, Va.-based TCS says the product will also be easier to learn and use than other trusted operating systems. TCS Trusted Linux will ship early next year.

The Tao of Network Security Monitoring: Beyond Intrusion Detection, by Richard Bejtlich; Addison-Wesley Professional, July 2004.
This book is one of the most useful titles I've read this year. It offers a comprehensive review of intrusion detection and network monitoring. The author takes the reader from the basics of placement of network sensors through a comprehensive description of tools, many of which I had never even heard of. Bejtlich uses real-world examples to provide a clear understanding of network monitoring, intrusion detection and incident response.
One aspect of the book I particularly appreciate is the discussion of real-world applications of some popular, freely available tools. Unfortunately, the book doesn't include a CD-ROM containing these tools, but the author does provide Web addresses where you can download the programs he discusses.
