On the page 36 is mentioned:

"AES, as standardized by NIST, is not exactly in the form the Rijndael was originally submitted. It has a fixed block size of 128 bits, and has key sizes of 128, 192, and 512 bits."

which is incorrect. The size ot the keys, approved by NIST are 128, 192 and 256. See NIST publication for refference:

Thanks Mr. Ninov. I have changed the 512 to 256 and the update will be online in 24 hours.

A small inaccuracy:
page 359
"Example 6-7 The fmp command and extended permissions"
write correctly:
"Example 6-7 The fpm command and extended permissions"

Mr. Oleg, I've found some time to make this change and it will be online in about 24 hours. Thanks!
