Suggestions required Book(s) on Networking & Security

Friends

Can anybody suggest couple of books that are well written and go in depth about networking and network security without focusing on products from a particular vendor? Books with programming examples in Java is not must but will be good. My intention is to learn more in following topics:

1. Network layers (OSI) with practical examples (of flowing data)
2. Detailed description of network infrastructure like routers, switches, NICs etc.
3. Detailed coverage of protocols on different OSI layers (esp. TCP/IP, UDP, PPP, IEEE 802.* etc.)
4. In-depth coverage of how internet works
5. Network threats and security - in-depth coverage of security protocols like ssh, ssl etc.
6. Firewalls - their types, features

If I have to read 2 or more books to understand above topics, that will also be fine. Can anyone help here?

Thanks
Varun

I don't know of a single book that covers everything you want. I started with this book in a college class and picked up everything else "on the job".
You could probably start with this article on OSI, follow the links to more pages and get all the information that you desire.
