Bottom line, this book should be required reading for all who plan to call themselves security practitioners, and an invaluable part of every university's computer science curriculum. I expect that it will motivate a good number of college students to want to learn more about the field, at the same time that it will satisfy the more experienced professional.
Whether you're a security practitioner, developer, manager, or administrator, this book will give you the deep understanding necessary to meet today's security challenges--and anticipate tomorrow's. Unlike most books, The Craft of System Security doesn't just review the modern security practitioner's toolkit: It explains why each tool exists, and discusses how to use it to solve real problems.
After quickly reviewing the history of computer security, the authors move on to discuss the modern landscape, showing how security challenges and responses have evolved, and offering a coherent framework for understanding today's systems and vulnerabilities. Next, they systematically introduce the basic building blocks for securing contemporary systems, apply those building blocks to today's applications, and consider important emerging trends such as hardware-based security.

In this section of Chapter Office Tools and Security. Historically, nonvolatile magnetic media, such as disks or once ubiquitous tapes, have been notorious for retaining data after deletion.
On a physical level, the contents of overwritten cells have been reputed to be readable via magnetic-force microscopy; however, a knowledgeable colleague insists that no documented case exists for any modern disk drive. The general idea is to write a binary pattern, then its complement, then repeat many times.
