Published in 1994, the book Firewalls and Internet Security: Repelling the Wily Hacker by William R. Cheswick and Steve Bellovin helped define the concept of a network firewall.[1] [2] Describing in detail one of the first major firewall deployments at AT&T, the book influenced the formation of the perimeter security model, which became the dominant network security architecture in the mid-1990s.[citation needed]
