The figure on the cover of Network Security Tools is a trapeze artist, the most romantic of circus performers. The allure of the trapeze performance, with its breathtaking aerial acrobatics and seemingly effortless flight, belies grave danger: the artist performs without a security net, so the slightest of mistakes can endanger a performer's life.
