Overview

Safeguarding the confidentiality, authenticity, integrity, and non-repudiation of information is paramount to organizational stability and success. This new book provides an understanding of information security, potential threats to our information, and effective countermeasures to proactively combat those threats. A comprehensive review of cryptographic techniques is explained in simple mathematical terms. The text covers symmetrical and asymmetrical encryption, digital signatures, Kerberos, code signing, creation/deployment of strong keys and passwords, Virtual Private Networks, SET, SSL, SSH, IPSec, and authentication techniques. A detailed examination of Tiny Encryption Algorithm (TEA) exposes readers to the inner workings of encryption. CD-ROM experiments help solidify the learning experience. Emphasis throughout is on the application of the cryptographic methods and support structures needed to effectively apply the principles to create a secure business setting.
