Review:
This book is intended to serve both as a textbook for an academic course of study, and as a self-study and reference guide for practicing professionals. The material has been extended to emphasize encryption and its central position in network protection. The structure and flow have been reorganized with both classroom use and solo instruction in mind, and additional teaching material, such as additional problems, have been added. Chapter one is an introduction to the topics to be covered. In a practical way it outlines the concerns involved in the phrase computer security, and the priorities occasioned by the networked nature of modern computing. There is also an outline of the chapters and sequence in the rest of the book. While th... Rest of this review on the detail page

Review:
Ira Winkler, a former analyst with the National Security Agency, contends that American companies lose billions of dollars each year through preventable information leaks. In Corporate Espionage, he shows how much of it is pilfered by unremarkable efforts--looking at memos, sifting through trash, peeking on desktops, or simply asking for it--and provides some advice to stop it. Additional highlights include a variety of illuminating anecdotes and an enlightening look at international subterfuge.

Review:
Suitable for the IP manager or developer seeking to improve Web privacy and security, Developing Trust: Online Privacy and Security provides an intriguing, though at times somewhat theoretical, guide to the issues surrounding privacy today.Interestingly, this book straddles an expert-eye, theoretical overview of what privacy is and a more practical view of how it is often undermined on the Internet today. Early sections cover basic terms and concepts of privacy at a fairly high level. Mixing in sometimes erudite commentary (and an occasional rant), the author's expert-level view does a good job of explaining what privacy is and the larger principles used to protect it. From anonymity to "verinymity" (where sites know who you are), Curtin ma... Rest of this review on the detail page

Review:
In this book Dan Brown writes about cryptography and privacy, and the role of the NSA. It starts by letting the reader feel for the NSA and their work to protect the US, but in the long run the good-guy / bad-guy roles are reversed as (another) attempt is made by the NSA to influence cryptography, only to be thwarted in the attempt. This book interests me as both privacy and cryptography are subjects that interest me. I read it in a new edition that came out after the popularity of the Da Vinci Code but the book is clearly written earlier. Before 11 september 2001. Before the euro. The author tries to sound informed about the developments in cryptography for the common user but sometimes misses the boat completely. Besides technicalit... Rest of this review on the detail page
