Willkommen in der New Economy, der Welt der digitalen Wirtschaft. Informationen sind leichter zugänglich als je zuvor. Die Vernetzung wird dicher, und digitale Kommunikation ist aus den Unternehmen nicht mehr wegzudenken. Die Begeisterung für die Technologie hat jedoch Ihren Preis: Die Zahl der Sicherheitsrisiken nimmt ständig zu. Die neuen Gefahren, die mit dem E-Business verknüpft sind, müssen den Unternehmen weltweit aber erst klar werden. Dieses Buch ist ein erster Schritt in diese Richtung. Bruce Schneier, anerkannter Experte im Bereich Kryptographie, erklärt, was Unternehmen über IT-Sicherheit wissen müssen, um zu überleben und wettbewerbsfähig zu bleiben. Er deckt das gesamte System auf, von den Ursachen der Sicherheitslücken bis hin zu den Motiven, die hinter böswilligen Attacken stehen. Schneier zeigt Sicherheitstechnologien und deren Möglichkeiten, aber auch deren Grenzen auf. Fundiert und anschaulich zugleich behandelt dieser praktische Leitfaden: - Die digitalen Bedrohungen und Angriffe, die es zu kennen gilt - Die derzeit verfügbaren Sicherheitsprodukte und -prozesse - Die Technologien, die in den nächsten Jahren interessant werden könnten - Die Grenzen der Technik - Das Vorgehen, um Sicherheitsmängel an einem Produkt offenzulegen - Die Möglichkeiten, existierende Risiken in einem Unternehmen festzustellen - Die Implementierung einer wirksamen Sicherheitspolitik Schneiers Darstellung der digitalen Welt und unserer vernetzten Gesellschaft ist pragmatisch, interessant und humorvoll. Und sie ermöglicht es dem Leser, die vernetzte Welt zu verstehen und sich gegen ihre Bedrohungen zu wappnen. Hier finden Sie die Unterstützung eines Experten, die Sie für die Entscheidungsfindung im Bereich IT-Sicherheit brauchen.

Genre: Computers

Dieses umfassende Einführungs- und Übersichtswerk zur Kryptografie beschreibt eine große Zahl von Verschlüsselungs-, Signatur und Hash-Verfahren in anschaulicher Form, ohne unnötig tief in die Mathematik einzusteigen. Hierbei kommen auch viele Methoden zur Sprache, die bisher kaum in anderen Kryptografiebüchern zu finden sind. Auf dieser breiten Basis geht das Buch auf viele spezielle Themen ein: Kryptografische Protokolle, Implementierungsfragen, Sicherheits-Evaluierungen, Seitenkanalangriffe, Malware-Angriffe, Anwenderakzeptanz, Schlüsselmanagement, Smartcards, Biometrie, Trusted Computing und vieles mehr werden ausführlich behandelt. Auch spezielle Kryptografieanwendungen wie Digital Rights Management kommen nicht zu kurz. Besondere Schwerpunkte bilden zudem die Themen Public-Key-Infrastrukturen (PKI) und kryptografische Netzwerkprotokolle (WEP, SSL, IPsec, S/MIME, DNSSEC und zahlreiche andere). Die Fülle an anschaulich beschriebenen Themen macht das Buch zu einem Muss für jeden, der einen Einstieg in die Kryptografie oder eine hochwertige Übersicht sucht. Der Autor ist ein anerkannter Krypto-Experte mit langjähriger Berufserfahrung und ein erfolgreicher Journalist. Er versteht es, Fachwissen spannend und anschaulich zu vermitteln. Die Neuauflage ist aktualisiert und geht auf neueste Standards, Verfahren sowie Protokolle ein. »Eines der umfangreichsten, verständlichsten und am besten geschriebenen Kryptografie-Bücher der Gegenwart.« David Kahn, US-Schriftsteller und Kryptografie-Historiker

Everyday Cryptography

Genre: Computers

Cryptography is a vital technology that underpins the security of information in computer networks. This book presents a comprehensive introduction to the role that cryptography plays in providing information security for everyday technologies such as the Internet, mobile phones, Wi-Fi networks, payment cards, Tor, and Bitcoin. This book is intended to be introductory, self-contained, and widely accessible. It is suitable as a first read on cryptography. Almost no prior knowledge of mathematics is required since the book deliberately avoids the details of the mathematics techniques underpinning cryptographic mechanisms. Instead our focus will be on what a normal user or practitioner of information security needs to know about cryptography in order to understand the design and use of everyday cryptographic applications. By focusing on the fundamental principles of modern cryptography rather than the technical details of current cryptographic technology, the main part this book is relatively timeless, and illustrates the application of these principles by considering a number of contemporary applications of cryptography. Following the revelations of former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, the book considers the wider societal impact of use of cryptography and strategies for addressing this. A reader of this book will not only be able to understand the everyday use of cryptography, but also be able to interpret future developments in this fascinating and crucially important area of technology.
