While e-commerce has experienced meteoric growth recently, security risks have similarly grown in scope and magnitude. Three major factors have driven the security risks in e-commerce: the growing reliance on the electronic medium for a company's core business, the growing complexity of the software systems needed to support e-commerce, and the value of the digital assets brought online to an inherently insecure medium - the Internet. While security has long been a primary concern in e-commerce, more recently privacy has also grown in importance to consumers. Many of the same Internet technologies that make e-commerce possible also make it possible to create detailed profiles of an individual's purchases, to spy on individual Web usage habits, and even to peer into confidential files that reside on an individual's machine.
E-Commerce Security and Privacy is the first volume to pull together leading researchers and practitioners in diverse areas of computer science and software engineering to explore their technical innovations to problems in security and privacy in e-commerce. The information is drawn from selected papers presented at the first Workshop on Security and Privacy in E-Commerce (WSPEC'00) held in Athens, Greece, November 4, 2000. As such, E-Commerce Security and Privacy introduces both practitioners and researchers to innovations in secure and private e-commerce. Practitioners will gain great insight from the case studies, and researchers will learn about state-of-the-art protocols in secure and private e-commerce that will serve as the basis for future innovations in applied e-commerce technologies.
E-Commerce Security and Privacy is suitable as a secondary text for a graduate level course, and as a reference for researchers and practitioners in industry.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Resulting from a workshop held in Athens, Greece in November 2000, this group of 8 papers is divided into case studies and innovations in reasoning about secure and private e-commerce by an international group of contributors. The case studies grapple with issues that include problems in policing e-commerce crime, security issues in mobile e- commerce, online banking, and software security analysis. Among the topics in the second part are a goal-based approach for specifying security and policy requirements, methods to provide secure and private access to Internet databases, a logic system used to define accountabilities in cryptographic protocols, and a logic system for provisional authorizations in e-commerce transactions.
