Secure Communicating Systems: Design, Analysis, and Implementation

Overview

This volume details what every computer scientist ought to know about cryptographic systems, security protocols, and secure information flow in programs. Highlights include discussions of the new advanced encryption standard "Rijndael"; an optimal public-key encryption using RSA which turns "textbook RSA" into a practical implementation; standard security models for information flow in computer programs or human organizations; and moral, legal, and political issues. Another novel feature is the presentation of a ...

Overview

This volume details what every computer scientist ought to know about cryptographic systems, security protocols, and secure information flow in programs. Highlights include discussions of the new advanced encryption standard "Rijndael"; an optimal public-key encryption using RSA which turns "textbook RSA" into a practical implementation; standard security models for information flow in computer programs or human organizations; and moral, legal, and political issues. Another novel feature is the presentation of a formal model-checking tool for specifying and debugging security protocols. A supporting web site http://www.cis.ksu.edu/~huth/scs contains Java source code for the programs featured plus links to other sites.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book can be a good text book at undergraduate level, and graduate level. It has a large number of exercises at the end of sections, and many subsections. This makes the textbook useful for the students...The book is well written to be suitable for self study. The researchers and professionals in the area of security may find the book useful as a reference."

From The Critics
In addition to the standard material on secure communication protocols covered in texts for advanced undergraduate/beginning graduate students, Huth (computer and information sciences, Imperial College of Science, Technology, and Medicine, London) presents a Web-supported discussion of topics of interest to computer professionals working with cryptosystems: e.g., the new Rijndael advanced encryption standard, encryption using RSA, algorithm proofs, and legislating electronic authentication. Chapters include exercises. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
