From the Back Cover:

This book considers the complete security lifecycle of products and services starting with requirements and policy development and progressing through deployment, operations, and decommissioning.

Engineering Information Security covers all aspects of information security using a systematic engineering approach and focuses on the viewpoint of how to control access to information. Unlike other books that focus on security mechanisms, threats, and vulnerabilities, this book presents a methodology for addressing security concerns in any organization. The methodology is based on a set of concepts that are designed to examine, analyze, and document objectives, and the functional and performance capabilities that need to exist to achieve the stated goals.

This book begins by considering the importance of information security. Legal, technical, competitive, criminal, and consumer forces and influences that are rapidly changing our information dependent society are also discussed. Concepts of systems engineering are explored, as well as the value they provide to new products and services along with the maintenance and evolution to existing products and services. A discussion of security services follow along with what technical and procedural controls instantiate these services. Network protocols are examined focusing on exploitable vulnerabilities. An in-depth discussion of computer security capabilities is provided followed by consideration of modern networking security controls. The book concludes with a discussion of operations security as part of information security governance.

This new edition includes:

  • Fifteen new sections throughout
  • Additional discussions on SCADA, Cloud, Sensor, Ad Hoc networks, and HTTP Basic and
  • Digest authentication
  • Coverage of code reviews, code scanning tools and testing, and SSL VPNs
  • Instructor resources include lecture slides, example quizzes, assignments, and a
  • final examination
  • Seven online appendices that include: example information security policies, security
  • requirements, a security Statement of Work, and risk management tables suitable for
  • SQL implementation

Over time, the technologies used for processing, storing, and communicating information have changed dramatically and rapidly. By presenting a systems engineering approach to information security, this book will assist security practitioners to cope with these rapid changes.
