General Computer/Network Security Links

In the Computer Security World there are generally two types of organizations: Hacker groups who try to break into computer security systems (mostly just out of harmless curiosity) and ex-hackers who now run Professional Computer Security Groups who try to keep the others out. Both sides visit each others pages frequently, attend the same conferences, and read the same books. It's a modern day digital cold war "Spy vs. Spy" These pages belong to the "Good guys" and will provide the basics of what you need. When you understand the information here, make sure you stop by our Hacker Links and get to know your enemy.
