Overview

This book presents modern concepts of computer security. It introduces the basic mathematical background necessary to follow computer security concepts. Modern developments in cryptography are examined, starting from private-key and public-key encryption, going through hashing, digital signatures, authentication, secret sharing, group-oriented cryptography, pseudorandomness, key establishment prools, zero-knowledge prools, and identification, and finishing with an introduction to modern e-bussiness systems based on digital cash. Intrusion detection and access control provide examples of security systems implemented as a part of operating system. Database and network security is also discussed.
This textbook is developed out of classes given by the authors at several universities in Australia over a period of a decade, and will serve as a reference book for professionals in computer security. The presentation is selfcontained. Numerous illustrations, examples, exercises, and a comprehensive subject index support the reader in accessing the material.
