Foundations of Computer Security

Foundations of Computer Security provides a succinct, yet authoritative introduction to the underlying theory, history, vocabulary, and concepts that drive this pivotal area of computer science. With its user-friendly approach and clarity of style, the text conveys-in simple terms the core principles and developments underlying computer security in its many ramifications in the rapidly evolving computing arena. Following its opening framework laid out in a broad preface and introductory chapter, the book features chapters dedicated to a wide array of security related subtopics: physical security, viruses and worms, malware and spyware, privacy and trust, and cryptography, to name several. The work is a sort of guidebook for newcomers: It assumes only basic knowledge of computers and refrains from heavy mathematical elements.
