Apart from decent books on your favourite security software:
"Intrusion Detection" by Stephen Northcutt and Judy Novak
"Secrets and Lies" by Bruce Schneier
"Crash! How to avoid a computer disaster" by Tony Collins
This last is a personal favourite of mine, although a little elderly now
(1997), not specifically about security and light on technical details,
a lot of the layer 8 issues discussed are highly relevant (IMO). Amazon
write up here:
There are a lot of excellent academic papers (note: not vendor 'white
papers') available on the net - worth slogging through even if the
mathematics is over your head - most recently I've been reading the
"Tracking physical devices by TCP and ICMP timestamp clock skews" paper
published recently, but monitor the usual sources for other interesting
bits of research : Full Disclosure, the Reg., Slashdot, nanog, Sec.
Focus, etc etc.
Speaking only for myself
