"Firewall", by itself, doesn't feel like an intuitive place to split
topics to me (aside from the convenience of its size).  However, I can
see a natural split between network security and host security.  In that
scenario, MAC would become the largest portion of the host security

That still leaves security with 2 chapters, unfortunately. It only
addressed the page count balance between the two chapters.
