Syngress | ISBN: 1597491225 | 448 pages | May 13, 2007 | PDF | 17 Mb
Security in the post 9/11 world is about much more than just guns, guards and gates. The authors make a tremendous contribution to today’s security debate by offering thoughtful and sensible recommendations that will help any reader understand the challenges of the networked world we now live in.- Roger Cresser, NBC News terrorism analyst
Written for both practitioners and managers, the authors provide the necessary background information as well as copious technical detail, and they round it out with a view of the converged security future. Numerous real-world examples and case studies are interwoven throughout the text, providing ample evidence that convergence is happening, but it is also hard to do well. Take advantage of the years in the government and commercial arenas that the authors have, their knowledge of current and emerging technologies, and their insight on other’s successes and failures.- Dr. Jim Jones, CISSP, Senior Scientist, SAIC
In my opinion the authors do an exceptional job explaining the need for more comprehensive approaches to achieving operational within business and governmental organizations. The authors clearly demonstrate why convergence of physical and logical security is a natural evolution with significant advantages to all participants.- Dr. Larry Ponemon, Chairman and Founder of the Ponemon Institute
The consistent and persistent message in this book is needed and well presented Corporate executives must understand and implement converged security or get left behind. This message is presented using a nice balance of historical examples and contemporary business issues and case studies. The authors make their points by presenting information from the public, and government perspectives. Thus, this book is appropriate for any leader in the field of security (physical or IT).- Dr. Terry Gudaitis, Cyber Intelligence Director, Cyveillance
Tittle: BlueTooth security
Author(s): Christian Gehrmann, Joakim Persson, Ben Smeets | “Bluetooth Security”
Artech House | Jun 2004 | ISBN: 1580535046 | English | PDF | 221 pages | 0.7 MB
This first-of-its-kind book, from expert authors actively contributing to the evolution of Bluetooth specifications, provides an overview and detailed descriptions of all the security functions and features of this standard’s latest core release. After categorizing all the security issues involved in ad hoc networking, this hands-on volume shows you how to design a highly secure Bluetooth system and implement security enhancements. The book also helps you fully understand the main involved with introducing Bluetooth-based communications in your organization.
This cutting-edge resource examines all known attacks on Bluetooth security mechanisms and their implementations, demonstrating how some of these known weaknesses can be avoided with appropriate defensive measures. The book presents concrete examples of how to design security solutions for some Bluetooth applications and products built on these applications. You find real-world case studies including technical algorithms, mechanisms and protocols, and security architectures. These architectures offer valuable guidelines for use in building Bluetooth and non-Bluetooth-specific security mechanisms.

Tittle: Computer Network security
Springer; 1 edition | ISBN: 0387204733 | 538 pages | April 7, 2005 | PDF | 23 Mb
A comprehensive survey of computer network security concepts, methods, and practices. This authoritative volume provides an optimal description of the principles and applications of computer network security in particular, and cyberspace security in general. The book is thematically divided into three segments: Part I describes the operation and security conditions surrounding computer networks; Part II builds from there and exposes readers to the prevailing security situation based on a constant security threat; and Part III – the core – presents readers with most of the best practices and solutions currently in use. It is intended as both a teaching tool and reference. This broad-ranging text/reference comprehensively surveys computer network security concepts, methods, and practices and covers network security tools, policies, and administrative goals in an integrated manner. It is an essential for undergraduate or graduate study, practitioners in networks, and professionals who develop and maintain secure computer network systems.

Tittle: Internet Sercurity
Internet Security incorporates not only the technology needed to support a solid security strategy but also those policies and processes that must be incorporated in order for that strategy to work.New methods of breaking into corporate networks are resulting in major losses. This book provides the latest information on how to guard against attacks and informs the IT manager of the products that can detect and prevent break-ins. Crucial concepts such as authentication and encryption are explained, enabling the reader to understand when and where these technologies will be useful. Due to the authors’ experiences in helping corporations develop secure networks, they are able to include the newest methods for protecting corporate data.��Shield data from both the internal and external intruder��Discover products that can detect and prevent these break-ins ��Protect against major losses with the latest incident handling procedures for detecting and recovering data from new viruses��Get details of a full security business review from performing the security risk analysis to justifying security expenditures based on your company’s business needs
Tittle: Foundations of Security
hat Every Programmer Needs to Know teaches new and current software professionals state-of-the-art software security design principles, methodology, and concrete programming techniques they need to build secure software systems. Once you’re enabled with the techniques covered in this book, you can start to alleviate some of the inherent vulnerabilities that make today’s software so susceptible to attack. The book uses web servers and web applications as running examples throughout the book.For the past few years, the Internet has had a “wild, wild west” flavor to it. Credit card numbers are stolen in massive numbers. Commercial web sites have been shut down by Internet worms. Poor privacy practices come to light and cause great embarrassment to the corporations behind them. All these security-related issues contribute at least to a lack of trust and loss of goodwill. Often there is a monetary cost as well, as companies scramble to clean up the mess when they get spotlighted by poor security practices.
It takes time to build trust with users, and trust is hard to win back. Security vulnerabilities get in the way of that trust. Foundations of Security: What Every Programmer Needs To Know helps you manage risk due to insecure code and build trust with users by showing how to write code to prevent, detect, and contain attacks.
