This thoroughly revised edition of an Artech House bestseller goes far beyond the typical computer forensics books on the market, emphasizing how to protect one's privacy from data theft and hostile computer forensics. The second edition has been updated to offer more detailed how-to guidance on protecting the confidentiality of data stored on computers, and specific information on the vulnerabilities of commonly used ancillary computing devices, such as PDAs, cellular telephones, smart cards, GPS devices, telephone calling cards, fax machines, and photocopiers. This cutting-edge book helps you identify the specific areas where sensitive and potentially incriminating data is hiding in personal computers and consumer electronics, and explains how to go about truly removing this data because mere "deletion" or even "overwriting" does not accomplish this. You get a systematic process for installing operating systems and application software that will help to minimize the possibility of security compromises, and numerous specific steps that need to be taken to prevent the hostile exploitation of one's computer.

    Today, privacy protection and computer forensics are quite powerful against all but the most technically savvy computer users. Author Michael A. Caloyannides has done an outstanding job of dealing with security from hostile computer forensics, as distinct from network forensics, which in this context is snooping into users' online activities. Caloyannides begins this book by defining what computer forensics really is. Next, the author discusses effective ways for users to permanently remove from their computers data that should not fall into the wrong hands. In addition, the author describes in detail the different types of specialized forensics applications like digital watermarking. He also describes how sensitive data can be stolen from one's computer. Then, he looks at the computer privacy and anonymity. The author then delves into the practical measures for protecting sensitive information. Next, he exposes the most common ways whereby one's privacy can be compromised while online and spells out specific ways of defeating those threats to one's security and privacy. Then, he deals with individual file encryption, with regards to protecting the file while it is in transit. The author then deals with encryption of all traffic over a given channel, which aspires to protect even files that have not been individually encrypted. Also, the author is concerned with the overall security of wireless connectivity with regards to WiFi and Bluetooth. Next, he covers other computer-related threats to privacy. Then, he looks at the use of biometrics with regard to privacy versus nonrepudiation issues. Finally, he includes two separate classes of legal issues: Legal issues of interest to the user of computers with or without the Internet and, legal issues pertaining to computer crime and legal evidence. With the preceding in mind, the author has done an excellent job of helping the professional or business person who has the legal and ethical obligation to protect proprietary business information or intellectual property stored in a computer, which is entrusted to that person or persons from being stolen by an unscrupulous competitor or by a thief. At the end of the day, because most computers are connected to the Internet and/or network at one time or another, you and your organization have the responsibility to make sure that security and privacy are at the forefront of everyone's mindset.
