Digital Rights Management: Technological, Economic, Legal by Eberhard Becker, Willms Buhse, Dirk Günnewig, Niels Rump

By Eberhard Becker, Willms Buhse, Dirk Günnewig, Niels Rump

Electronic Rights administration (DRM) is a subject of curiosity to a variety of humans from a variety of backgrounds: engineers and technicians, criminal lecturers and legal professionals, economists and company practitioners. the 2 meetings at the factor held in 2000 and 2002 in Berlin, Germany, introduced those humans jointly for fruitful discussions. This e-book maintains this strategy via offering insights into the 3 major parts that DRM in?uences and that DRM is stimulated by means of: expertise, economics, and legislations and politics. taking a look at the 1st result of the 2 meetings we wish to stress 3 elements. to start with, DRM is a reasonably younger subject with many matters nonetheless - resolved. Secondly, there's nonetheless an acute loss of target information regarding DRM and the results of utilizing (or now not utilizing) DRM in our info Society. And, ultimately, in simple terms open discussions among the entire events and other people from diversified medical and useful backgrounds may help to create a starting place on which DRM can truly turn into important.

Introduction to Cryptography

A result of quick development of electronic verbal exchange and digital information trade, info protection has develop into a very important factor in undefined, company, and management. smooth cryptography presents crucial suggestions for securing details and maintaining info. within the first half, this publication covers the foremost 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 e-book constitutes the refereed lawsuits of the seventh foreign Workshop on thought 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 extensive number of public key cryptosystems.

The Mathematics of Coding Theory, 1st Edition

This ebook makes a truly available advent to a vital modern program of quantity thought, summary algebra, and chance. It comprises a variety of computational examples all through, giving freshmen the chance to use, perform, and money their realizing of key options. KEY subject matters assurance starts off from scratch in treating likelihood, entropy, compression, Shannon¿s theorems, cyclic redundancy exams, and error-correction.

Example text

If identity is a relation it must hold either between two distinct things or between a thing and itself. To say that A is the same as B, when A and B are distinct, is bound to be false; but to say that A is the same as A is to utter a tautology. Different solutions have been found by different philosophers for this “paradox of identity”. This may seem like remote philosophising, but in fact lies at the heart of practical implementations. e. in a defined context). ); but it might be considered the same — a copy — for the purposes of intellectual property (it retains the typographical layout and semantic sense).

Functional granularity does not propose that every possible part and version is identified: only that the means exists to identify any possible part or version when the occasion arises. Identification is not the same as mark–up, though if a section is distinguishable by some mark–up coding it will be subsequently easier to specify it as separately identified. 2 Conflicting Views of Granularity: Difference within Sameness What is “the same thing” for one user, purpose, or context will be “two different things” for another.

Paskin cover coloured blue”, and that blue may be specifically identified by a Pantone number; both the book and “blue” would be identified entities. Entity is a term used to mean simply something that is identified. The underlying idea, from the project, is that nothing exists in any useful sense until it is identified. An ontology is a tool which is able to structure relationships between entities; an explicit formal specification of how to represent the entities that are assumed to exist in some area of interest and the relationships that hold among them74.
