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.

In the era of Internet of Things (IoT) and with the explosive worldwide growth of electronic data volume, and associated need of processing, analysis, and storage of such humongous volume of data, several new challenges are faced in protecting privacy of sensitive data and securing systems by designing novel schemes for secure authentication, integrity protection, encryption, and non-repudiation. Lightweight symmetric key cryptography and adaptive network security algorithms are in demand for mitigating these challenges. This book presents some of the state-of-the-art research work in the field of cryptography and security in computing and communications. It is a valuable source of knowledge for researchers, engineers, practitioners, graduates, and doctoral students who are working in the field of cryptography, network security, and security and privacy issues in the Internet of Things (IoT). It will also be useful for faculty members of graduate schools and universities.

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 Multi-level Security in Cloud Computing: Image Sequencing and RSA Algorithm

Currently cloud computing environments have come up with a serious problem known as security which is in terms of Confidentiality of Data, Integrity of the Message and Authenticity of the users (CIA). Since user’s personal data is being stored in an unencrypted format on a remote machine operated by third party vendors who provide various services, the impact of user’s identity and unauthorized access or disclosure of files are very high. Though we have various techniques and algorithms to protect our data from hackers and intruders still cloud environments are prone to other attacks. In this book, a novel approach is implemented to protect user’s confidential data from third party service providers, and also to make sure that the data is not disclosed to any unauthentic user or the service provider even, in any cloud environments. This approach provides a multi-level security in three aspects: 1) User authentication for ‘authorization’ to enter the network, 2) Image Sequencing password for ‘authentication’ wherein it is proved that the identity is original user and 3) RSA algorithm to encrypt the data further for providing ‘data integrity’. Thus this approach provides an overall security to the client’s personal data and the major issue of confidentiality, integrity and authenticity is fully solved. Implemented results are represented to illustrate that our approach has a reasonable performance.

Weil die Ressourcen ihres eigenen Planeten, dem Mars, aufgebraucht sind, überfällt eine überlegene Zivilisation wie aus dem Nichts die Erde, um diese neue wasser- und rohstoffreiche Quelle auszubeuten. Die lästigen Menschen werden von den emotionslosen Marsianern gnadenlos gejagt und sollen mit Hilfe riesiger dreibeiniger Killer-Roboter und Giftgas ausgerottet werden. Das Militär ist den technisch weit fortgeschrittenen Angreifern hoffnungslos unterlegen, und die Menschheit blickt einem elenden Ende entgegen ... Rettung scheint nicht mehr denkbar zu sein ... Dieser im Jahr 1898 erschienene unerreichte Klassiker der Science-Fiction-Literatur löste, als von Orson Welles im Jahr 1938 neu inszeniertes Radio-Hörspiel, bei vielen Zuhörern, die es als Live-Reportage missverstanden, an der Ostküste der USA Panik aus.
