Security Engineering: A Guide to Building Dependable Distributed Systems By Ross J. Anderson
2 edition 2008 | 1082 Pages | ISBN: 0470068523 | PDF | 5 MB
Gigantically comprehensive and carefully researched, Security Engineering makes it clear just how difficult it is to protect information systems from corruption, eavesdropping, unauthorized use, and general malice. Better, Ross Anderson offers a lot of thoughts on how information can be made more secure (though probably not absolutely secure, at least not forever) with the help of both technologies and management strategies. His work makes fascinating reading and will no doubt inspire considerable doubt–fear is probably a better choice of words–in anyone with information to gather, protect, or make decisions about.
