co-director Matt Bishop offers clear, rigorous, and thorough coverage of modern computer security. Reflecting dramatic growth in the quantity, complexity, and consequences of security incidents, Computer Security, Second Edition, links core principles with technologies, methodologies, and ideas that have emerged since the first editions publication.Writing for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and IT professionals, Bishop covers foundational issues, policies, cryptography, systems design, assurance, and much more. He thoroughly addresses malware, vulnerability analysis, auditing, intrusion detection, and best-practice responses to attacks. In addition to new examples throughout, Bishop presents entirely new chapters on availability policy models and attack analysis.Understand computer security goals, problems, and challenges, and the deep links between theory and practiceLearn how computer scientists seek to prove whether systems are secureDefine security policies for confidentiality, integrity, availability, and moreAnalyze policies to reflect core questions of trust, and use them to constrain operations and changeImplement cryptography as one component of a wider computer and network security strategyUse system-oriented techniques to establish effective security mechanisms, defining who can act and what they can doSet appropriate security goals for a system or product, and ascertain how well it meets themRecognize program flaws and malicious logic, and detect attackers seeking to exploit themThis is both a comprehensive text, explaining the most fundamental and pervasive aspects of the field, and a detailed reference. It will help you align security concepts with realistic policies, successfully implement your policies, and thoughtfully manage the trade-offs that inevitably arise.Register your book for convenient access to downloads, updates, and/or corrections as they become available.
