This book has been written keeping in mind syllabi of all Indian universities and optimized the contents of the book accordingly. These students are the book's primary audience. Cryptographic concepts are explained using diagrams to illustrate component relationships and data flows. At every step aim is to examine the relationship between the security measures and the vulnerabilities they address. This will guide readers in safely applying cryptographic techniques. This book is also intended for people who know very little about cryptography but need to make technical decisions about cryptographic security. many people face this situation when they need to transmit business data safely over the Internet. This often includes people responsible for the data, like business analysts and managers. as well as those who must install and maintain the protections, like information systems administrators and managers. This book requires no prior knowledge of cryptography or related mathematics. Descriptions of low-level crypto mechanisms focus on presenting the concepts instead of the details. This book is intended as a reference book for professional cryptographers, presenting the techniques and algorithms of greatest interest of the current practitioner, along with the supporting motivation and background material. It also provides a comprehensive source from which to learn cryptography, serving both students and instructors. In addition, the rigorous treatment, breadth, and extensive bibliographic material should make it an important reference for research professionals. While composing this book my intention was not to introduce a collection of new techniques and protocols, but rather to selectively present techniques from those currently available in the public domain.

Special Ops: Internal Network Security Guide is the solution for the impossible 24-hour IT work day. By now, most companies have hardened their perimeters and locked out the "bad guys," but what has been done on the inside? This book attacks the problem of the soft, chewy center in internal networks. We use a two-pronged approach-Tactical and Strategic-to give readers a complete guide to internal penetration testing. Content includes the newest vulnerabilities and exploits, assessment methodologies, host review guides, secure baselines and case studies to bring it all together. We have scoured the Internet and assembled some of the best to function as Technical Specialists and Strategic Specialists. This creates a diversified project removing restrictive corporate boundaries. The unique style of this book will allow it to cover an incredibly broad range of topics in unparalleled detail. Chapters within the book will be written using the same concepts behind software development. Chapters will be treated like functions within programming code, allowing the authors to call on each other's data. These functions will supplement the methodology when specific technologies are examined thus reducing the common redundancies found in other security books. This book is designed to be the "one-stop shop" for security engineers who want all their information in one place. The technical nature of this may be too much for middle management; however technical managers can use the book to help them understand the challenges faced by the engineers who support their businesses. Ø Unprecedented Team of Security Luminaries. Led by Foundstone Principal Consultant, Erik Pace Birkholz, each of the contributing authors on this book is a recognized superstar in their respective fields. All are highly visible speakers and consultants and their frequent presentations at major industry events such as the Black Hat Briefings and the 29th Annual Computer Security Institute Show in November, 2002 will provide this book with a high-profile launch. Ø The only all-encompassing book on internal network security. Windows 2000, Windows XP, Solaris, Linux and Cisco IOS and their applications are usually running simultaneously in some form on most enterprise networks. Other books deal with these components individually, but no other book provides a comprehensive solution like Special Ops. This book's unique style will give the reader the value of 10 books in 1.

Managing Risk: Technology and Communications is a practical guide to the effective management of technology and communications risks. Frequent high profile scares, like the Sasser worm and WiFi vulnerabilities, make a proactive approach essential and this book shows you how to put in place expedient checks, balances and countermeasures. Business networks are threatened by a host of factors, from employee abuse to non-compliance with data protection and libel laws, from hacker attacks to viruses and from extortion and terrorism to natural disaster. The costs of failing to manage systems risks can be immense and go beyond simple loss of productivity or even fraudulent losses to brand damage, theft of business secrets, expensive litigation, diminished customer confidence and adverse impacts on personnel and share value. This practical handbook includes examples, checklists and case studies to help you manage such hazards. The book covers: • accessibility of information; • acceptable use of information; • directors’ legal duties; • general legal compliance; • protecting networks from external and internal threats; • encouraging security awareness at management and employee level; • reputational risk management; and • national and international risk and security standards. Managing Risk: Technology and Communications is the indispensable work of reference for IT and technology managers, HR managers, IT legal advisors, company secretaries and anyone seeking practical guidance on technology risks and their management.

From driverless cars to pilotless planes, many functions that have previously required human labor can now be performed using artificial intelligence. For businesses, this use of AI results in reduced labor costs and, even more important, creating a competitive advantage. How does one look at any organization and begin the work of automating it in sensible ways? This book provides the blueprint for automating critical business functions of all kinds. It outlines the skills and technologies that must be brought to bear on replicating human-like thinking and judgment in the form of algorithms. Many believe that algorithm design is the exclusive purview of computer scientists and experienced programmers. This book aims to dispel that notion. An algorithm is merely a set of rules, and anyone with the ability to envision how different components of a business can interact with other components already has the ability to work in algorithms. Though many fear that the use of automation in business means human labor will no longer be needed, the author argues that organizations will re-purpose humans into different roles under the banner of automation, not simply get rid of them. He also identifies parts of business that are best targeted for automation. This book will arm business people with the tools needed to automate companies, making them perform better, move faster, operate cheaper, and provide great lasting value to investors.

About the series: Technology builders, entrepreneurs, consultants, academicians, and futurists from around the world share their wisdom in The Future of the Internet surveys conducted by the Pew Internet & American Life Project and Elon University. The series of surveys garners smart, detailed assessments of multilayered issues from a variety of voices, ranging from the scientists and engineers who created the first Internet architecture a decade ago to social commentators to technology leaders in corporations, media, government, and higher education. Among the respondents are people affiliated with many of the world's top organizations, including IBM, AOL, Microsoft, Intel, ICANN, the Internet Society, Google, W3C, Internet2, and Oracle; Harvard, MIT, and Yale; and the Federal Communications Commission, FBI, U.S. Census Bureau, Social Security Administration, and U.S. Department of State. They provide significant and telling responses to questions about the future of government, education, media, entertainment, commerce, and more. They foresee continuing conflicts over control of networked communications and the content produced and shared online. Ubiquity, Mobility, Security: The Future of the Internet, Volume 3: Based on the third canvassing of Internet specialists and analysts by the Pew Internet & American Life Project, this volume showcases the responses of technology stakeholders and critics who were asked to assess scenarios about the future social, political, and economic impact of the Internet. Some 578 leading Internet activists, builders, and commentators responded in this survey to scenarios about the effect of the Internet on social, political, and economic life in the year 2020. An additional 618 stakeholders also participated in the study, for a total of 1,196 participants who shared their views. The insights garnered in the study included predictions made on the role and importance of mobile devices, the transparency of people and organizations, talk and touch user interfaces with the Internet, the challenges of sharing content while trying to perfect intellectual property law and copyright protection, divisions between work and personal time given the blurring of physical and virtual reality, and the "next-generation" engineering of the network to improve the current Internet structure.

IBM® Coach Framework is a key component of the IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) platform that enables custom user interfaces to be easily embedded within business process solutions. Developer tools enable process authors to rapidly create a compelling user experience (UI) that can be delivered to desktop and mobile devices. IBM Process Portal, used by business operations to access, execute, and manage tasks, is entirely coach-based and can easily be configured and styled. A corporate look and feel can be defined using a graphical theme editor and applied consistently across all process applications. The process federation capability enables business users to access and execute all their tasks using a single UI without being aware of the implementation or origin. Using Coach Framework, you can embed coach-based UI in other web applications, develop BPM UI using alternative UI technology, and create mobile applications for off-line working. This IBM Redbooks® publication explains how to fully benefit from the power of the Coach Framework. It focuses on the capabilities that Coach Framework delivers with IBM BPM version 8.5.7. The content of this document, though, is also pertinent to future versions of the application.
