Computer Security Textbook Chapter Reviewers Sought

I am currently at work on a new edition of my textbook, Computer
Security. Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to carefully
read a chapter to check for technical errors, computational errors, and
typos. In return, you will be acknowledged in the Preface and receive a
free copy of the book when it comes out late 2011. I would need
feedback in about 6 to 8 weeks.
    This is a technical rather than a user book, so you need a technical
background in this area. Chapters include

Chapter 3    User Authentication
Chapter 4    Access Control
Chapter 5    Database Security
Chapter 6    Intrusion Detection
Chapter 7    Malicious Software
Chapter 8    Denial of Service
Chapter 9    Firewalls and Intrusion Prevention Systems
Chapter 10    Trusted Computing and Multilevel Security
Chapter 11     Buffer Overflow
Chapter 12     Other Software Security Issues
Chapter 13    Physical and Infrastructure Security
Chapter 14    Human Factors
Chapter 15    Security Auditing
Chapter 16    IT Security Management and Risk Assessment
Chapter 17    IT Security Controls, Plans and Procedures
Chapter 18    Legal and Ethical Aspects

Please contact me directly and please mention a special interest in one
of these chapters if you wish. The files are in PDF format. Thanks!
