1-0 out of 5 stars The book should be re-titled
With the cost of over $60 and having a book that can cover so shallow is a 'rip off'.I think the book should be re-titled as `Idiots for Internet Security'.Even the books from IDG Idiot Series cover more in depth than this one.I spent 5 minutes and dropped this book to the bottom of the shelf. Most titles have a discussion of less than a page and some of them are not even relevant - such as `atomicity'.To be fair, the book should having a warning sign- `Strictly for non technical people'.

I simply cannot believe the cost of this book.I actually fell for it, and thought, "Wow, with a price like this, it must be the holy grail of portal resources" -- WRONG.For someone fairly familiar with portals and some of the thinking behind them, you'll find the content un-informative and un-inspiring.The writing isn't that great in terms of continuity and clarity, and there isn't enough detail to make the book worthy as a reference.

It goes into the basics of bandwidth calculation, leading up to the technologies used to support the different kind of services.

Thisbook could be used as a pre-cursor to an indepth research into newtechnologies.

ADSL, ATM, ISDN is mentioned in the book.

Lastly, thisbook is not drab and has some humour in it.

Product Description
Intranets are every bit as important as the hypesters say, but they are a lot more difficult to implement.Now, top consultant Jennifer Stone Gonzalez has written the book on maximizing the business impact of your intranet.With profound insight into the cultural, business and technical issues involved, she demonstrates how to:

- Chose among four divergent models of intranet design

- Align web technology with your business goals

- Build intranets that strengthen your company as a community.

Packaged with a CD-ROM which includes state-of-the-art intranet demos from Durand Communications, IntraNetics, Netscape Communication Corporation and RadNet WebShare.Amazon.com Review
Jennifer Stone Gonzalez sees intranets as more than mereenhancements of corporate communications; she sees them as excitingtools for revitalizing the corporate environment and the people whowork there. The 21st Century Intranet is written for people whowant to champion the development on intranets within theirorganization and who want to ensure that the systems developed addvalue to the organization and excitement to the workplace.

Thethrust of the book is on enhancing communication, starting withpersuading upper management to implement intranets wisely and supportthem appropriately. Although Gonzalez discusses the fundamentals ofintranet design and management, she does not refer to them fortechnical matters but for issues of how organizations communicate andlearn. She devotes considerable space to determining which featuresare most valuable on an intranet, getting senior management involved,coordinating the sites of diverse groups, and encouraging employees touse the intranet as their primary communication tool within theorganization--including allaying fears that may arise from theorganizational change an intranet may represent.

Gonzalez alsoaddresses the professional development of those who manageintranets. She discusses concerns such as how to determine the realsuccess of your intranet development efforts, how to make the successapparent to senior management, and how to develop intranet creationand management as a career opportunity. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars What a waste of time...
A. Although the book is only a few years old, it is unfortunately already largely outdated. Considering that intranets have only been around for about 8 years, this book only covers the first 4 years (till about 1997). As the last 4 years are missing, practical relevance of the content is rather low.

B. The entire book (over 470 pages) is just never-ending bla-bla, consisting largely of badly assembled bits and pieces from other authors' published work. There is really no value added anywhere in this book.

C. The amount of typos is just unacceptable

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent book for all Intranet Managers and Developers
I believe that, even though this book is over two years old, it is still absolutely foundational to anyone who is an Intranet Project Manager.

Having been a contractor for over five years, dealing primarilyon the e-commerce and marketing side of the Internet, I needed a tool thatwould quickly give me a broad perspective in the Intranet realm.I wasable to complete this book in four days and walk into my new position atState Farm Insurance as the California Web Coordinator with an excellentunderstanding of what needed to be done.Three weeks after starting my newjob, myself and my counterparts from the other areas in the state were ableto prepare and submit a proposal based primarily on what I learned fromthis book.Try that with any other book and you'll still be trying topeice it together.This is an excellent book that's very easy to read andvery informative.

Thanks Jennifer for a job well done.

5-0 out of 5 stars Intranet development should start here!
This interesting and well-written (style) book discusses the whys, whos, whats and even the whens of successful intranet development. Yes, it also discusses the hows - not the actual software development 'how', but ratherthe oft forgotten yet crucial part that comes before anything else: findingout what users want. It makes a strong case for designing intranets aroundits users, their need for information and the inherent potential of theunderlying internet technology for information exchange. In fact, it wouldappear that Ms. Gonzalez's rendition of the history of the evolution of theinternet is made for the sole purpose of reminding us that its raisond'etre was communal information exchange and hence this is what we shouldbe using it for. More importantly, Ms. Gonzalez presents a realisticframework - at the same time making a strong case - for bottom-up intranetdevelopment: evolving from diverse, distributed informal groups ofinformation-seekers within the same enterprise, then nurtured by intranetchampions and finally "sold" to top management as a cleareconomic choice to other means of information and knowledge sharing. Sheeven goes through the pains of preparing generic proposals for sellingintranet projects to top management. This book is an essential startingpoint for top management and intranet champions in undertaking any ITproject (period)! Heeding Ms. Gonzalez's words is sure to save manyIT-itchy companies much time, effort and money!

4-0 out of 5 stars A good starting place, in spite of all the typos
This book is a good place to start if you have been tasked with starting up an intranet. While it is a bit repetitive, the author makes her case forimportant issues like user-centered design, the criteria of a successfulintranet and moving away from the first of four models of an intranet. Itwill expose you to the most important issues surrounding the design,implementation and running of an intranet.

The book is really let down byits poor editing; be prepared for, on average, one typo per page and quitea few grammatical errors as well. I find these niggles irritating andinexcusable, especially from a publisher like Prentice Hall.

5-0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking and insightful.

4-0 out of 5 stars For nonbeginners who want the intracate details of networkng
I read this book when it first came out in the beginning of '96. It goes into great detail about network theory, tcpip, and unix and NT networking, then goes into hands on explanations of setting up a web server, ftp server, and more, though most of it is catered towards unix. This is not a book for beginners, or for the faint at heart. It goes to the heart of the subject and gets technical very quickly, but the author does an excellent job of explaining things clearly and concisely. It's not the right book for someone who just wants to set up some servers on a corporate lan, especially if it's NT, but for those looking for the theory and inner workings of different protocols, and how these work with various internet services primarily on unix boxes, this could be an excellent reference! ...

Product Description
Companies are building intranets at an unprecedented rate because they leverage existing technology, increase communications, provide a unified interface to information, and reduce costs. This new 218-page CTR report is an invaluable guide to developing and implementing intranet security policies and procedures that allow an organization to take full advantage of intranet benefits without compromising company computing resources.

Intranets: An Emerging Business Resource

Intranets are revolutionizing the way organizations function. Internal Web servers have moved from being a repository for simple shared content to encompassing applications that interact with legacy systems. Unfortunately, these advantages also bring critical risks if the intranet is not properly secured.

CTR's new report, Intranet Security, is designed to help information systems (IS) managers and other information security personnel work together to build secure corporate intranets.

The report discusses the misconception that intranets are intrinsically more secure than Internet applications and explains why businesses must evaluate their risk level before implementing a security policy. Specific security tools and the future of intranets are also examined in detail.

Intranet Security: Internal and External Risks

CTR's Intranet Security report evaluates the internal and external risks related to intranets, including: data theft, viruses, Web server vandalism, client security, and reusable passwords.

Reusable passwords act as the doorway for intruders in 72% of attacks. The report addresses the need for strong authentication methods, such as one-time passwords (OTP) and digital certificates.

The report also explores the risks associated with providing remote intranet access. Virtual private networks (VPNs) provide a means to securely connect remote offices to the intranet. The technology behind VPNs is examined, as well as the cost of providing access using VPNs versus leased lines.

Because intranets are typically open to the entire company, the majority of security breaches are committed internally. The report discusses this issue and offers valuable information on how to protect your organization against internal security breaches.

Intranet Security Solutions

Intranet Security offers an in-depth discussion of available intranet security products and technologies.Perhaps the most well-known measure for securing intranets is the use of firewalls. The report compares the different types of firewall products, describes the capabilities and limitations of firewalls, and offers a set of guidelines for successfully operating firewalls.

Another key technology for securing intranets is encryption. The report assesses the need for encryption and offers an overview of important encryption concepts and technologies such as public key encryption, digital signatures, and the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

Developing an Intranet Security Policy

Developing an intranet security policy is the most important measure that organizations can take to improve their security. While existing security policies may address computing and network issues, intranet policies must cover such areas as intranet publishing guidelines and employee use of the Internet.

CTR's new report provides specific steps for putting together an effective intranet security policy, including conducting a corporate audit, monitoring computer and Internet use, and educating intranet users.Information on how to respond to security incidents and advice on hiring security staff is also included.

Future Trends in Intranet Security

Intranet Security includes a discussion of trends in the intranet security market, including all-in-one solutions, increased use of security outsourcing, and predictions that intranet security breaches will increase in the short-term as many organizations are reactive rather than proactive in implementing intranet security.One important, and very popular, trend in corporate intranets involves making intranets available to third parties. Extended intranets, called extranets, allow customers and business partners access to the intranet. This connection enables the use of technologies such as E-commerce.

Intranets offer strategic advantages to businesses by creating a centralized knowledge base, enabling collaboration, and providing a standard interface to information across all hardware platforms. As intranets grow into trusted resources, relied on by employees and customers alike, the need to protect them becomes paramount.

This new report from CTR includes the tools and information necessary to help ensure the protection and success of your corporate intranet. ... Read more
