IBM has released a Redbook titled “IBM WebSphere Application Server V6.1 Security Handbook”, which is part of the IBM WebSphere V6.1 series. The Redbook focuses on security and security-related topics and provides technical details to design and implement secure solutions with WebSphere.
We at Peningo Systems strongly recommend this RedBook for any WebSphere Consultant / WebSphere Architect / WebSphere Developer who are involved in designing, developing, and deploying secure e-business applications using IBM WebSphere Application Server V6.1.
This Book Consists of 4 Parts:
