Cyber Security and IT Infrastructure Protection by John R. Vacca

By John R. Vacca

This ebook serves as a safety practitioner’s consultant to today’s most vital matters in cyber safety and IT infrastructure. It bargains in-depth assurance of idea, expertise, and perform as they relate to demonstrated applied sciences in addition to contemporary developments. It explores useful recommendations to quite a lot of cyber-physical and IT infrastructure security issues.

Composed of eleven chapters contributed by means of top specialists of their fields, this hugely valuable booklet covers catastrophe restoration, biometrics, native land safeguard, cyber battle, cyber safety, nationwide infrastructure safeguard, entry controls, vulnerability tests and audits, cryptography, and operational and organizational defense, in addition to an in depth word list of defense phrases and acronyms.

Written with teachers and scholars in brain, this publication contains tools of study and problem-solving strategies via hands-on workouts and labored examples in addition to questions and solutions and the facility to enforce functional ideas via real-life case experiences. for instance, the hot layout comprises the next pedagogical parts: • Checklists all through each one bankruptcy to gauge realizing • Chapter evaluate Questions/Exercises and Case reviews • Ancillaries: ideas handbook; slide package deal; determine files

This layout might be appealing to universities and profession faculties in addition to federal and nation companies, company safeguard education courses, ASIS certification, etc.

  • Chapters by way of leaders within the box on thought and perform of cyber defense and IT infrastructure defense, permitting the reader to increase a brand new point of technical expertise
  • Comprehensive and updated assurance of cyber protection matters permits the reader to stay present and entirely knowledgeable from a number of viewpoints
  • Presents equipment of study and problem-solving innovations, bettering the reader's clutch of the fabric and talent to enforce functional solutions

Introduction to Cryptography

A result of swift development of electronic communique and digital information alternate, details safety has turn into a vital factor in undefined, enterprise, and management. glossy cryptography offers crucial ideas for securing details and preserving information. within the first half, this publication covers the most important suggestions of cryptography on an undergraduate point, from encryption and electronic signatures to cryptographic protocols.

Public Key Cryptography – PKC 2004: 7th International Workshop on Theory and Practice in Public Key Cryptography, Singapore, March 1-4, 2004. Proceedings

This ebook constitutes the refereed lawsuits of the seventh overseas Workshop on conception and perform in Public Key Cryptography, PKC 2004, held in Singapore in March 2004. The 32 revised complete papers provided have been rigorously reviewed and chosen from 106 submissions. All present concerns in public key cryptography are addressed starting from theoretical and mathematical foundations to a huge number of public key cryptosystems.

The Mathematics of Coding Theory, 1st Edition

This booklet makes a really available advent to an important modern program of quantity concept, summary algebra, and chance. It comprises a variety of computational examples all through, giving rookies the chance to use, perform, and money their knowing of key innovations. KEY themes insurance begins from scratch in treating likelihood, entropy, compression, Shannon¿s theorems, cyclic redundancy assessments, and error-correction.

Although several fault tolerance approaches are being proposed for cloud computing services, most solutions that achieve at least one of the required properties described above are based on virtualization technology. By using virtualization-based approaches, it is also possible to deal with both classes of faults. In particular, in a later section of this chapter we present a virtualization-based solution that provides fault tolerance against crash failures using a checkpointing mechanism. We discuss this solution because it offers two additional, significantly useful, properties: (1) Fault tolerance is induced independent to the applications and hardware on which it runs.

Using traditional methods, fault tolerance properties of the e-commerce application remains constant throughout its life cycle, and hence, in the user’s perspective, it is complementary to engage with a third party (the fault tolerance service provider—ftSP), specify its requirements based on the business needs, and transparently possess desired fault tolerance properties without studying the low-level fault tolerance mechanisms. The ftSP must realize a range of fault tolerance techniques as individual modules (separate agreement and execution protocols, and heartbeat-based fault detection technique as an independent module) to benefit from the economies of scale.

The entire OS at node n1 is moved to another location (node n2) so that e-commerce customers do not experience any impact of the failure. 6e), the IaaS may be affected since the system now consists of four working nodes only. 6f). Within the FTM framework, the notion of providing fault tolerance as a service can therefore be effectively realized for the cloud computing environment. Based on FTM’s delivery scheme, users can achieve high levels of reliability and availability for their applications without having any knowledge about the low-level mechanisms, and dynamically change the fault tolerance properties of its applications (based on the business needs) at runtime.
