CYA Securing IIS Chris Peiris, Bernard Cheah, Ken Schaefer: : Books

The presentation consists largely of screen shots plus instructions of what fields to fill in. Background and design information is mentioned but generally not integrated into the text for any practical result.

There is very little “system administrator” perspective offered to provide a coherent approach to addressing IIS security. The check lists are a good idea.

However, unfortunately, you’ll often have to look outside the book itself for information about the topics: You’ll find little information about password technology in Windows. Approaching this correctly is critical for avoiding some serious vulnerabilities.

The value of the book is that secuting presents information relevant to IIS security in one place. However, other books present the same information more thoroughly, with better background and administration guidance.

There’s nothing here that you cant find yourself on the net in less than five minutes. This book was written for the kind of person that has trouble finding the “ON” switch – not a real network administrator.

If you know what you’re doing, then dont waste your money. Most people in the business world are likely familiar with the term “CYA”, which is exactly what this book is designed to do. The authors intend that reading this book will give IIS administrators the information they need to keep their networks secure, and hence keep their jobs. This is the first CYA book I’ve read, and I was quite impressed by the nice balance between providing enough useful information without overkill.

The book is designed to get right to the point by showing not telling exactly what is required in securing an IIS 6 installation. Each chapter is focused on a specific section of IIS security. Each chapter contains the some information on the Microsoft recommended procedure for the particular practice what the authors call “By the Book”. Additionally, you will find many sections throughout the book labeled “Realty Check”, which is designed to highlight how to either do something different from what Microsoft recommends or what some of the problems associated with the recommended procedure might be.


Finally, “Notes from the Underground” popup frequently, which help illustrate how hackers might utilize poor security around the illustrated practice in order to gain something. I found the chapters to be well laid-out, easy to follow, and right to the point.

This book helped provide some real insight to various security practices around IIS, and was quite interesting to read as well. This book is a must-have if you are responsible for monitoring or maintaining IIS 6 in your infrastructure. I am definitely looking forward to reading the next in the series of CYA books! Thank you guys for an excellent book! I have been developing applications for IIS for many years and think you have done a great job in explaining how it all works.

I also very much like the “reality check” concept. Keep up the good work! It is a practical book. Each chapter is lacking of coherent. It is better to have scenario to illustrate why this should be used or done. See all 5 reviews. There’s a problem loading this menu right now. Learn more about Amazon Prime.
