ABOUT THE AUTHORS
This book was written according to the ISECOM (Institute for Security and Open
Methodologies) project methodology. ISECOM is an open, nonprofit security research
and certification organization established in January 2001 with the mission to make sense
of security. They release security standards and methodologies under the Open
Methodology License for free public and commercial use.
This book was written by multiple authors, reviewers, and editors—too many to all
be listed here—who collaborated to create the best Linux hacking book they could. Since
no one person can master everything you may want to do in Linux, a community wrote
the book on how to secure it.
The following people contributed greatly and should be recognized.
