Security in Computing is the most complete and up-to-date college textbook now available. Enlivened by actual case studies and supported by more than 175 exercises, the book covers:
A modular, layered structure makes Security in Computing ideal for classroom use as well as a reference for professionals. Once the basic tools have been covered, the remaining chapters can be studied in any order, and to any depth desired.
