Now updated—your expert guide to twenty-first century information security Information security is a rapidly evolving field. As businesses and consumers become increasingly dependent on complex multinational information systems, it is more imperative than ever to protect the confidentiality and integrity of data. Featuring a wide array of new information on the most current security issues, this fully updated and revised edition of Information Security: Principles and Practice provides the skills and knowledge readers need to tackle any information security challenge. Taking a practical approach to information security by focusing on real-world examples, this book is organized around four major themes: Cryptography: classic cryptosystems, symmetric key cryptography, public key cryptography, hash functions, random numbers, information hiding, and cryptanalysis Access control: authentication and authorization, password-based security, ACLs and capabilities, multilevel security and compartments, covert channels and inference control, security models such as BLP and Biba's model, firewalls, and intrusion detection systems Protocols: simple authentication protocols, session keys, perfect forward secrecy, timestamps, SSH, SSL, IPSec, Kerberos, WEP, and GSM Software: flaws and malware, buffer overflows, viruses and worms, malware detection, software reverse engineering, digital rights management, secure software development, and operating systems security This Second Edition features new discussions of relevant security topics such as the SSH and WEP protocols, practical RSA timing attacks, botnets, and security certification. New background material has been added, including a section on the Enigma cipher and coverage of the classic "orange book" view of security. Also featured are a greatly expanded and upgraded set of homework problems and many new figures, tables, and graphs to illustrate and clarify complex topics and problems. A comprehensive solutions manual is available to assist in course development. Minimizing theory while providing clear, accessible content, Information Security remains the premier text for students and instructors in information technology, computer science, and engineering, as well as for professionals working in these fields.

No one ever arrested a computer for computer crime. The real threat to information systems security comes from people, not computers. That's why students need to understand both the technical implementation of security controls, as well as the softer human behavioral and managerial factors that contribute to the theft and sabotage of proprietary data. Addressing both the technical and human side of information systems security, Dhillon's "Principles of Information Systems Security" helps future managers understand the broad range of technical, managerial, ethical, and legal issues related to IS security, and equips them with specific tools and techniques to support effective IS security management. Key Features Balanced coverage addresses the social and technical nature of IS security. Takes a managerial orientation, presenting key security challenges that information technology managers commonly face. Provides an analytical framework to conceptualize IS security problems. Draws on a range of disciplines, such as computer science, sociology, law, anthropology, and behavioral science. Cases put the theoretical material in real-life context. Gurpreet Dhillon is a Professor of Information Systems in the School of Business, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, USA. He is the Editor-in-Chief of the "Journal of Information System Security," is the North American Regional Editor of the "International Journal of Information Management, " and sits on the editorial board of "MISQ Executive."

This book offers a comprehensive introduction to the fundamental aspects of Information Security (including Web, Networked World, Systems, Applications, and Communication Channels). Security is also an essential part of e-business strategy (including protecting critical infrastructures that depend on information systems) and hence information security in the enterprise (Government, Industry, Academia, and Society) and over networks has become the primary concern. The book provides the readers with a thorough understanding of how information can be protected throughout computer networks. The concepts related to the main objectives of computer and information security systems, namely confidentiality, data integrity, authentication (entity and data origin), access control, and non-repudiation have been elucidated, providing a sound foundation in the principles of cryptography and network security. The book provides a detailed treatment of design principles of classical and modern cryptosystems through an elaborate study of cryptographic techniques, algorithms, and protocols. It covers all areas of security—using Symmetric key and Public key cryptography, hash functions, authentication techniques, biometric techniques, and stegano-graphy. Besides, techniques such as Secure Socket Layer (SSL), Firewalls, IPSec for Web security and network security are addressed as well to complete the security framework of the Internet. Finally, the author demons-trates how an online voting system can be built, showcasing information security techniques, for societal benefits. Information Security: Theory and Practice is intended as a textbook for a one-semester course in Information Security/Network Security and Crypto-graphy for B.E./B.Tech students of Computer Science and Engineering and Information Technology.
