Much in the same way compilers has the dragon book, algorithms has the Cormen, and graphics has Foley & van Dam I am wondering what the book on computer security is. Not the "best" book, or the most practical, or the "hacking handbook", but the classic book on the fundamental theoretical concepts behind information security that's been used in classes for generations (or will be, once it's old enough). Is there such a book?
In other words, if information security was cooking, which book would be The Joy Of Cooking? If information security was Scotch, which book would be Michael Jackson's Complete Guide To Single Malt Scotch? If information security books were drills, which would be the Hole-Hawg?
