Fun question for you guys.
Since I am still very wet behind the ears for networking in general, I was wondering if anyone has suggestions for some good books to learn IDS/IPS the Cisco way? I don't plan on deploying any cisco based devices tragically, but I would like to learn the Cisco equipment anyways.
Also does anyone have any good suggestions for learning Snort based IDS boxes and Linux in general? For a work project I am doing both of those and my Linux experience is very limited.
I have a safari account so I can probably read a majority of the books people suggest, especially the Cisco ones.
to you guys for your help and advice in a lot of things. I've learned a lot from this forum and I love reading through to just absorb information about anything and everything and broaden my horizons
