9780134289519: Computer Security: Art and Science (2 Volume Set)

The importance of computer security has increased dramatically during the past few years. Bishop provides a monumental reference for the theory and practice of computer security. This is a textbook intended for use at the advanced undergraduate and introductory graduate levels, non-University training courses, as well as reference and self-study for security professionals. Comprehensive in scope, this covers applied and practical elements, theory, and the reasons for the design of applications and security techniques. Bishop treats the management and engineering issues of computer. Excellent examples of ideas and mechanisms show how disparate techniques and principles are combined (or not) in widely-used systems. Features a distillation of a vast number of conference papers, dissertations and books that have appeared over the years, providing a valuable synthesis. This book is acclaimed for its scope, clear and lucid writing, and its combination of formal and theoretical aspects with real systems, technologies, techniques, and policies.

 

The most complete book on information security theory, technology, and practice from a well-recognized security authority and educator.

  • Matt Bishop is an expert in information assurance and robust, safe code- important topics today.
  • Current with the latest developments.
  • Well-suited to become the leading security textbook.

From the Back Cover:

"This is an excellent text that should be read by every computer security professional and student."

—Dick Kemmerer, University of California, Santa Barbara.

"This is the most complete book on information security theory, technology, and practice that I have encountered anywhere!"

—Marvin Schaefer, Former Chief Scientist, National Computer Security Center, NSA

This highly anticipated book fully introduces the theory and practice of computer security. It is both a comprehensive text, explaining the most fundamental and pervasive aspects of the field, and a detailed reference filled with valuable information for even the most seasoned practitioner. In this one extraordinary volume the author incorporates concepts from computer systems, networks, human factors, and cryptography. In doing so, he effectively demonstrates that computer security is an art as well as a science.

Computer Security: Art and Science includes detailed discussions on:

  • The nature and challenges of computer security
  • The relationship between policy and security
  • The role and application of cryptography
  • The mechanisms used to implement policies
  • Methodologies and technologies for assurance
  • Vulnerability analysis and intrusion detection
  • Computer Security discusses different policy models, and presents mechanisms that can be used to enforce these policies. It concludes with examples that show how to apply the principles discussed in earlier sections, beginning with networks and moving on to systems, users, and programs.

    This important work is essential for anyone who needs to understand, implement, or maintain a secure network or computer system.
