Comprehensive and conveniently terse, but way too obtuse . Does cover IPSEC and S/Mime. Like many specialists, his attempt to tack on a couple chapters on general security issues are lame at points.

First words
In this age of universal electronic connectivity, of viruses and hackers, of electronic eavesdropping and electronic fraud, there is indeed no time at which security does not matter.
