This fully updated new edition explores the security issues, vulnerabilities and dangers encountered by the users of modern computing and communication devices, highlighting the need to develop improved algorithms, protocols, and best practices to enhance the security of public, private and enterprise systems alike.
Features: introduces the fundamentals of traditional computer networks and the security threats they face; discusses the security challenges introduced by virtualization software, cloud computing and mobile systems; examines the security quagmire presented by the home computing environment; raises important legislative, legal, social, technical and ethical security issues, including the tension between the needs of individual privacy and collective security; provides both quickly workable and more thought-provoking exercises at the end of each chapter, with one chapter devoted entirely to lab exercises; supplies additional support material for instructors at an associated website.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The book offers relevant definitions in the field of security and computer networks ... . The book is definitively addressed to the general nonspecialist public; practitioners may be able to consult it for some definitions. ... It is, in my view, important to emphasize that all of the topics are covered in a merely definitional, descriptive way." (Carla Sanchez Aguilar, Computing Reviews, April, 2016)

"The book contains exercises and advanced exercises, along with relevant references, and comes with support materials for instructors ... making it useful for teaching courses on computer security. ... The exercises and projects are helpful for teaching. ... I believe the third edition will continue to receive praise from students, researchers, and practitioners. I strongly recommend it." (S. V. Nagaraj, Computing Reviews, August, 2015)
