Outline Review Check Point NG aims to teach its readers how to install and set up VPN-1/FireWall-1 Next Generation, the latest version of the highly respected firewall software from Check Point. Its authors--all with significant network and security certifications--accomplish their objective: it seems likely that this book will travel with a lot of Check Point consultants and stand ready on the shelves of many organizations' network security specialists. The book has plenty of unadorned how-to procedures that get straight to the point, and enough background information to help you make good designs and troubleshoot problems. The Syngress style, which incorporates a carefully considered list of questions and answers at the end of each chapter, suits this subject well. It's easy to locate sections of interest or to scan straight through and accumulate knowledge.
Your security requirements are unique, of course, but the authors do a good job of explaining how to satisfy common requirements and implement variations upon them. For example, they show how to configure Network Address Translation (NAT) in a general way, then--in a Q&A section--show how to combine sequentially numbered networks into a single network object for easy administration of rules. This is documentation worth having. --David Wall
Topics covered: Installation of VPN-1/FireWall-1 and setup via the graphical user interface. There's deep coverage of security policies, naturally, and of user authentication, content filtering, Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), and Network Address Translation (NAT). The specifics of configuring for various protocols--including RPC and LDAP--are covered well.

DO NOT PURCHASE THIS BOOK May 5, 2004
it is obsolete. i wasted $150.00 on the CCSA, this book doesn't cover smart defense and is too basic for a firewall admin.
You won't need additional help May 31, 2003
I'm in charge of several firewall-1 (NG). Because of this I got 5 books on this matter. Well, believe me, is like as I only had just one. This one ! In fact all the needed information is not only thoughtfully covered but besides it is well and coherently explained and correlated with the surrounding issues. If you add up the information scattered in the other books, you'll find the same information contained in this book, only in a lot more hard to handle, diffuse and even contradictory. Firewall-1?. . . with the only help of this book you are done.
Excellent, covers everything, Apr 30, 2003
This book is a wealth of information. I bought it specifically for the chapter on installing Check Point VPN-1/FireWall-1 on Solaris. It was excellent. In addition, the chapters on the graphical interface and the security policy are comprehensive and very well written. Great coverage of NAT, OPSEC, and SAM. If you are using CheckPoint, pick it up.
Great resource, good review for exam Apr 7, 2003
My boss bought a copy for our department and I can't tell you how many times its been referred to for information in the last month or two. There is great coverage of everything: VPN-1/FireWall-1 installation on Windows, Solaris, and Nokia. Also coverage of SecureUpdate, security polcies, NAT, authentication, content filtering, VPNs. The advanced configuration chapter could have been beefier, but that's my only criticism of the book.
Excellent Resource Nov 18, 2002
Great book- excellent book on Next Generation. I have a couple of Check Point books on my shelf- this one is the one I find myself referring to time and time again... If you're looking for good books on this same sort of stuff, pick up the Nokia book by the same publisher- I just got my copy yesterday and so far it's excellent. These two books are a must have for any person working with Check Point products...
