9780130272768: Secure Electronic Commerce: Building the Infrastructure for Digital Signatures and Encryption

Co-authored by the leading e-commerce security specialist and a leading legal specialist in e-commerce, this book offers a complete blueprint showing companies how to implement state-of-the-art e-commerce while minimizing all the security risks involved. This new edition has been completely updated to reflect today's latest developments in digital signatures, public-key infrastructure, EDI technical standards, certification, and authentication. The book begins by introducing the underlying technologies and inherent risks of electronic commerce. It considers the role of computer networks, the Internet, EDI and email, and the challenges of ensuring that electronic transactions are resistant to fraud, traceable, and legally binding in all jurisdictions. From network security to cryptography and today's latest secure Web and messaging protocols, all of today's latest security technologies are explained in detail, from a business perspective, in language non-specialists can easily understand.

Review:

Have a look at Secure Electronic Commerce: Building the Infrastructure for Digital Signatures and Encryption if you've been charged with setting up a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) for an organisation, or if you're just not content to trust commercial products' claims of security. This book gives a clear and complete overview of digital certificate management techniques. This richly detailed and heavily referenced volume generally stays clear of implementation specifics. Readers can count on it to provide the background in concepts and terminology that they'll need to make PKI design decisions.

Without exception, this is a very clearly written book, but there are rather few conceptual diagrams--and a few more graphics might have clarified the relationships among entities. Regardless, it's abundantly evident that the authors did a great deal of research--a rarity in this field. Nearly every other sentence contains a reference to an endnote. Study this book and the material it references, and participate in online forums on PKI issues to truly understand how PKI works. --David Wall

Topics covered: Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) design and functionality, including the legal principles behind binding electronic transactions and the details of authentication, encryption, non-repudiation, and key management. Certificates, Certificate Authorities (CAs), and means of managing trust relationships are all covered.

From the Back Cover:

"More now than ever, business has a responsibility to understand the trade-offs, costs, benefits and risks involved in choosing any particular type of information security technology. That necessary due diligence begins in Chapter 1 of this book."

—Spence Abraham, United States Senate
