Although security is prevalent in PCs, wireless communications and other systems today, it is expected to become increasingly important and widespread in many embedded devices. For some time, typical embedded system designers have been dealing with tremendous challenges in performance, power, price and reliability. However now they must additionally deal with definition of security requirements, security design and implementation. Given the limited number of security engineers in the market, large background of cryptography with which these standards are based upon, and difficulty of ensuring the implementation will also be secure from attacks, security design remains a challenge. This book provides the foundations for understanding embedded security design, outlining various aspects of security in devices ranging from typical wireless devices such as PDAs through to contactless smartcards to satellites.

From the reviews:"The book contains 11 chapters which deal with different issues regarding the embedded systems security. Each chapter represents an important field which must be considered in understanding the security of these systems. ... is recommended to engineers, designers and compute scientists. It might also be considered interesting by graduate students or readers with a background in cryptography. ... offers good theoretical explanations reinforced by practical examples. All the presented algorithms are described through detailed schemes which help the reader to better understand the notions." (Nicolae Constantinescu, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1186, 2010)
