Because of the rapid growth of cybercrime, cryptography and system security may be the fastest growing technologies in our culture today. This book describes various aspects of cryptography and system security, with a particular emphasis on the use of rigorous security models and practices in the design of networks and systems. The first portion of the book presents the overall system security concepts and provides a general overview of its features, such as object model and inter-object communications. The objective is to provide an understanding of the cryptography underpinnings on which the rest of the book is based. The book is designed to meet the needs of beginners as well as more advanced readers.

Features:

  • Covers the major components of cryptography and system security, with a particular emphasis on the use of rigorous security models and practices used in the design of networks and systems
  • Includes a discussion of emerging technologies such as Big Data Analytics, cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), Smart Grid, SCADA, control systems, and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN)
