This monograph on Security in Computing Systems: Challenges, Approaches and Solutions aims at introducing, surveying and assessing the fundamentals of se- rity with respect to computing. Here, “computing” refers to all activities which individuals or groups directly or indirectly perform by means of computing s- tems, i. e. , by means of computers and networks of them built on telecommuni- tion. We all are such individuals, whether enthusiastic or just bowed to the inevitable. So, as part of the ‘‘information society’’, we are challenged to maintain our values, to pursue our goals and to enforce our interests, by consciously desi- ing a ‘‘global information infrastructure’’ on a large scale as well as by approp- ately configuring our personal computers on a small scale. As a result, we hope to achieve secure computing: Roughly speaking, computer-assisted activities of in- viduals and computer-mediated cooperation between individuals should happen as required by each party involved, and nothing else which might be harmful to any party should occur. The notion of security circumscribes many aspects, ranging from human qua- ties to technical enforcement. First of all, in considering the explicit security requirements of users, administrators and other persons concerned, we hope that usually all persons will follow the stated rules, but we also have to face the pos- bility that some persons might deviate from the wanted behavior, whether ac- dently or maliciously.

Willkommen in der New Economy, der Welt der digitalen Wirtschaft. Informationen sind leichter zugänglich als je zuvor. Die Vernetzung wird dicher, und digitale Kommunikation ist aus den Unternehmen nicht mehr wegzudenken. Die Begeisterung für die Technologie hat jedoch Ihren Preis: Die Zahl der Sicherheitsrisiken nimmt ständig zu. Die neuen Gefahren, die mit dem E-Business verknüpft sind, müssen den Unternehmen weltweit aber erst klar werden. Dieses Buch ist ein erster Schritt in diese Richtung. Bruce Schneier, anerkannter Experte im Bereich Kryptographie, erklärt, was Unternehmen über IT-Sicherheit wissen müssen, um zu überleben und wettbewerbsfähig zu bleiben. Er deckt das gesamte System auf, von den Ursachen der Sicherheitslücken bis hin zu den Motiven, die hinter böswilligen Attacken stehen. Schneier zeigt Sicherheitstechnologien und deren Möglichkeiten, aber auch deren Grenzen auf. Fundiert und anschaulich zugleich behandelt dieser praktische Leitfaden: - Die digitalen Bedrohungen und Angriffe, die es zu kennen gilt - Die derzeit verfügbaren Sicherheitsprodukte und -prozesse - Die Technologien, die in den nächsten Jahren interessant werden könnten - Die Grenzen der Technik - Das Vorgehen, um Sicherheitsmängel an einem Produkt offenzulegen - Die Möglichkeiten, existierende Risiken in einem Unternehmen festzustellen - Die Implementierung einer wirksamen Sicherheitspolitik Schneiers Darstellung der digitalen Welt und unserer vernetzten Gesellschaft ist pragmatisch, interessant und humorvoll. Und sie ermöglicht es dem Leser, die vernetzte Welt zu verstehen und sich gegen ihre Bedrohungen zu wappnen. Hier finden Sie die Unterstützung eines Experten, die Sie für die Entscheidungsfindung im Bereich IT-Sicherheit brauchen.

Despite recent dramatic advances in computer security regarding the proliferation of services and applications, security threats are still major impediments in the deployment of these services. Paying serious attention to these issues, Security in Distributed, Grid, Mobile, and Pervasive Computing focuses on the increasing demand to guarantee privacy, integrity, and availability of resources in networks and distributed systems. A rich and useful presentation of strategies for security issues, the book covers each computing area in separate sections. It first reviews security issues and challenges in content distribution networks, describes key agreement protocols based on the Diffie-Hellman key exchange and key management protocols for complex distributed systems like the Internet, and discusses securing design patterns for distributed systems. The next section focuses on security in mobile computing and wireless networks, covering wireless authentication methods, secure data aggregation, and anonymous routing protocol. After a section on grid computing security, the book presents an overview of security solutions for pervasive healthcare systems and surveys wireless sensor network security. With more and more vital information stored on computers, security professionals need to know how to combat threats and complications. Offering strategies to tackle these issues, this book provides essential security information for researchers, practitioners, educators, and graduate students in the field.

A fresh new approach to computer security by the authors of the 20-year best-selling classic Security in Computing. • •Introduces computer security the way today's practitioners want to learn it: by identifying threats, explaining the vulnerabilities that cause them, and presenting effective countermeasures. •Contains up-to-date coverage of security management, risk analysis, privacy, controls, forensics, insider attacks, human factors, trust, and more. •Includes 273 problems and 192 illustrations. In this book, the authors of the 20-year best-selling classic Security in Computing take a fresh, contemporary, and powerfully relevant new approach to introducing computer security. Organized around attacks and mitigations, the Pfleegers' new Analyzing Computer Security will attract readers' attention by building on the high-profile security failures they may have already encountered in the popular media. Each section starts with an attack description. Next, the authors explain the vulnerabilities that have allowed this attack to occur. With this foundation in place, they systematically present today's most effective countermeasures for blocking or weakening the attack. One step at a time, readers progress from attack/problem/harm to solution/protection/mitigation, building the powerful real-world problem solving skills they need to succeed as information security professionals. Analyzing Computer Security themes throughout, including effective security management and risk analysis; economics and quantitative study; privacy, ethics, and laws; and the use of overlapping controls. The authors also present significant new material on computer forensics, insiders, human factors, and trust. addresses crucial contemporary computer security

This is volume 73 of Advances in Computers. This series, which began publication in 1960, is the oldest continuously published anthology that chronicles the ever- changing information technology field. In these volumes we publish from 5 to 7 chapters, three times per year, that cover the latest changes to the design, development, use and implications of computer technology on society today. In this current volume, subtitled “Emerging Technologies, we discuss several new advances in computer software generation as well as describe new applications of those computers. The first chapter gives an overview of various software development technologies that have been applied during the past 40 years with the goal of improving the software development process. This includes various methods such as structured development methods, reviews, object-oriented methods and rapid development technologies. Chapter 2 explores implications of UML as an emerging design notation for software. Chapter 3 looks at the emerging concept of pervasive computing and its impact on resource management and security. The authors discuss how the goal of transparency of computers affects efficiency of the system as well as security concerns. Chapter 4 discusses RFID, or radio frequency identification. This is the technology that cheaply tags products with unique identifiers that only need to pass near a reading device rather than specifically being read by a scanner. With this technology, products can be traced through the supply chain from manufacture to use easily. In the final chapter, the authors discuss the use of robot technology in medicine, specifically computer-integrated interventional medicine (CIIM) in which robotic control takes over some or all of the aspects of surgery.
