Security Engineering: A Guide to Building Dependable Distributed Systems
OverviewSecurity engineering is about building systems to remain dependable in the face of malice, error or mischance. It requires cross-disciplinary expertise, ranging from cryptography and computer security to a knowledge of applied psychology, management and the law. This book brings them together into a comprehensive guide to building complete systems. Written for the working programmer or engineer who needs to learn the subject quickly but has no time to do a PhD in it, there are detailed descriptions of automatic teller machines, burglar alarms, copyright protection mechanisms, de-identified medical record databases, electronic warfare systems, and other critical applications. It also covers a lot of technology such as biometrics, tamper-resistant electronics and the tricks used in phone fraud. Over the next few years it is predicted that: the Internet will grow to include all sorts of things besides PCs; by 2003, there will be more mobile phones connected than computers; and within a few years we'll see many of the world's fridges, heart monitors, bus ticket dispensers and burglar alarms talking IP. Things will be further complicated by the spread of peer-to-peer models of networking. Securing real applications in this sort of environment is one of the biggest engineering challenges to 2010. This book aims to help meet the challenge.
