Learn application security from the very start, with this comprehensive and approachable guide! Alice and Bob Learn Application Security is an accessible and thorough resource for anyone seeking to incorporate, from the beginning of the System Development Life Cycle, best security practices in software development. This book covers all the basic subjects such as threat modeling and security testing, but also dives deep into more complex and advanced topics for securing modern software systems and architectures. Throughout, the book offers analogies, stories of the characters Alice and Bob, real-life examples, technical explanations and diagrams to ensure maximum clarity of the many abstract and complicated subjects. Topics include: · Secure requirements, design, coding, and deployment · Security Testing (all forms) · Common Pitfalls · Application Security Programs · Securing Modern Applications · Software Developer Security Hygiene Alice and Bob Learn Application Security is perfect for aspiring application security engineers and practicing software developers, as well as software project managers, penetration testers, and chief information security officers who seek to build or improve their application security programs. Alice and Bob Learn Application Security illustrates all the included concepts with easy-to-understand examples and concrete practical applications, furthering the reader’s ability to grasp and retain the foundational and advanced topics contained within.
Appropriate for all graduate-level and upper-level courses in network or computer security. Widely regarded as the most comprehensive yet comprehensible guide to network security, the First Edition of Network Security received critical acclaim for its lucid and witty explanations of the inner workings of network security protocols. Now, in the 2nd Edition, this books exceptionally distinguished author team draws on its hard-won experience to illuminate every facet of information security, from the basics to advanced cryptography and authentication; secure Web and email services; and emerging security standards. Highlights of the books extensive coverage include Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), IPsec, SSL, X.509 and related PKI standards, and Web security. The authors go far beyond documenting standards and technology: they contrast competing schemes, explain strengths and weaknesses, and identify the crucial errors most likely to compromise secure systems.
This book contains the Proceedings of the 21st IFIP TC-11 International Information Security Conference (IFIPISEC 2006) on "Security and Privacy in Dynamic Envir- ments" held in May 22-24 2006 in Karlstad, Sweden. The first IFIPISEC conference was arranged in May 1983 in Stockholm, Sweden, one year before TC- 1 1 was founded, with the active participation of the Swedish IT Security Community. The IFIPISEC conferences have since then become the flagship events of TC-11. We are very pleased that we succeeded with our bid to after 23 years hold the IFIPISEC conference again in Sweden. The IT environment now includes novel, dynamic approaches such as mobility, wearability, ubiquity, ad hoc use, mindhody orientation, and businesslmarket ori- tation. This modem environment challenges the whole information security research community to focus on interdisciplinary and holistic approaches whilst retaining the benefit of previous research efforts. Papers offering research contributions focusing on dynamic environments in addition to other aspects of computer security and privacy were solicited for submission to IFIPISEC 2006. We received 141 submissions which were all reviewed by at least three members of the international program committee.
A reference guide to the use of the security features available in Microsoft's .NET framework. Code samples and configuration techniques are explained. Sixteen chapters discuss user- and code-identity-based security, membership conditions and code groups, strong naming assemblies, hosting managed code, verification and validation, data transport integrity. Further chapters cover material specific to administration and development concerns. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
In quantum computing, we witness an exciting and very promising merge of two of the deepest and most successful scientific and technological developments of this century: quantum physics and computer science. The book takes a very broad view of quantum computing and information processing in general. It deals with such areas as quantum algorithms, automata, complexity theory, information and communication, cryptography and theoretical results. These include such topics as quantum error correcting codes and methods of quantum fault tolerance computing, which have made the vision of a real quantum computer come closer. No previous knowledge of quantum mechanics is required. The book is written as a self-study introduction to quantum computing and can be used for a one-semester course on quantum computing, especially for computer scientists. To meet this aim the book contains numerous examples, figures and exercises.
White Hats are the people doing good things with security, and this is their arsenal. The book covers everyday security issues and explains how to find the real threats and discover their solutions.
A non-technical approach to the issue of privacy in E-Mail rates the security of popular programs and offers practical solutions--two leading-edge encryption programs, PEM (Privacy Enhanced Mail) and PGP (Pretty Good Privacy). Original. (All Users).
As e-learning increases in popularity and reach, more people are taking online courses and need to understand the relevant security issues. This book discusses typical threats to e-learning projects, introducing how they have been and should be addressed.
Collects 21 papers from the June 2001 workshop that discuss recent theoretical developments in computer security. The main subjects are non-interference and information flow, access control, protocols, multi-threading, intrusion tolerance and detection, logic for protocol verification, and privacy. Some of the topics are a state transition model of trust management and access control, a cryptographic protocol verifier based on prolog rules, a new type system for secure information flow, a statistical anomaly detection algorithm based on Markov chains, log auditing through model checking, a compositional logic for protocol correctness, and confined mobile functions.
