<> Computer Security: Principles and Practice William Stallings and Lawrie Brown A thorough, up-to-date survey of the entire discipline of computer security. Security experts William Stallings and Lawrie Brown provide a comprehensive survey of computer security threats, technical approaches to the detection and prevention of security attacks, software security issues, and management issues. Throughout, the authors focus on core principles, showing how they unify the field of computer securuity and demonstrating their applications in real-world systems and networks. They examine alternate design approaches to meeting security requirements and illuminate the standards that are central to today's security solutions. Ideal for both academic and professional audiences, Computer Securityoffers exceptional clarity, careful organization, and extensive pedagogical support - including hundreds of carefully crafted practice problems. COVERAGE Security technologies and principles, including cryptography, authentication, and access control Threats and countermeasures, from detecting intruders to countering DOS attacks Trusted computing and multilevel security Secure software: avoiding buffer overflows, malicious input, and other weaknesses Linux and Windows security models Managing security: physical security, training, audits, policies, and more Computer crime, intellectual property, privacy, and ethics Cryptographic algorithms, including public-key cryptography Internet security: SSL, TLS, IP security, S/MIME, Kerberos, X.509, and federatetd identity management KEY FEATURES Strong coverage of unifying principles and design techniques Dozens of figures and tables that clarify key concepts Field-tested homework problems Extensive Web support atWilliamStallings.com/CompSec/CompSec1e.html Keyword/acronym lists, recommended readings, and glossary About the Authors William Stallings has won the Best Computer Science and Engineering Textbook award seven times.
