/"For the series of U.S. government publications on computer security
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_security> standards, see Rainbow
/The *Rainbow Books* are a collection of standards defining the allowed
formats of Compact Discs <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compact_Disc>."
The Rainbow Books make fairly boring reading too. Poor character
development and plots.
I suspect Len Deighton <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Len_Deighton>,
Fredick Forsythe, and John Le Carre might be just as useful for Security
as the Rainbow Series, given US performance since 1945.
I remember also having CCITT "rainbow books" in mid 1980s when designing
SW & HW for Trunk Protocol Translation of Central offices (At least the
Red one). I suspect that more Linux Programmers need the Compact Disk
and CCITT coloured books than the USA Colored books :-) Any CHILL
