      Comments about oreilly Securing WebLogic Server 12c:

      I admit I only had this book for 15 minutes and already disappointed with this book because what I thought were basic security concepts were not covered. Specifically I was interested in were:
      - Securing the web console with HTTPS
      - switching to t3s rather than the insecure t3
      - SSL authentication

      At least it did cover administrator logins using LDAP and MS Active Directory, which is one of the requirements I need to meet.

      Note: I've been working and administrating Weblogic since 2006.
