Chapter 14. Security > Server Security Issues

Server Security Issues

Server computers generally run applications software or provide sets of services to many different users. Sometimes the users will have the ability to log in to the server, whereas in other situations only the administrators can log in. Server computers generally run multiuser operating systems such as UNIX and the various server versions of Windows.
