Firewalls and Internet Security: Repelling the Wily Hacker, a 1994 book 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.[3]

In 2003, a second edition came out, adding Aviel D. Rubin to the authors.
