This book offers a comprehensive introduction to the fundamental aspects of Information Security (including Web, Networked World, Systems, Applications, and Communication Channels). Security is also an essential part of e-business strategy (including protecting critical infrastructures that depend on information systems) and hence information security in the enterprise (Government, Industry, Academia, and Society) and over networks has become the primary concern. The book provides the readers with a thorough understanding of how information can be protected throughout computer networks. The concepts related to the main objectives of computer and information security systems, namely confidentiality, data integrity, authentication (entity and data origin), access control, and non-repudiation have been elucidated, providing a sound foundation in the principles of cryptography and network security. The book provides a detailed treatment of design principles of classical and modern cryptosystems through an elaborate study of cryptographic techniques, algorithms, and protocols. It covers all areas of security—using Symmetric key and Public key cryptography, hash functions, authentication techniques, biometric techniques, and stegano-graphy. Besides, techniques such as Secure Socket Layer (SSL), Firewalls, IPSec for Web security and network security are addressed as well to complete the security framework of the Internet. Finally, the author demons-trates how an online voting system can be built, showcasing information security techniques, for societal benefits. Information Security: Theory and Practice is intended as a textbook for a one-semester course in Information Security/Network Security and Crypto-graphy for B.E./B.Tech students of Computer Science and Engineering and Information Technology.
The protection of confidentiality, integrity and availability of data, while ensuring policy implementation and organizational productivity is the primary focus of information security. An evaluation of the assets, threats, vulnerabilities, impacts and effectiveness of control measures is crucial for developing an effective risk management plan. The threats to information security can be in the form of software attacks, intellectual property thefts, sabotage and information extortion. Some common examples of software attacks are viruses, Trojan horses, phishing attacks and worms. This book is a compilation of chapters that discuss the most vital concepts and emerging trends in the field of information security. The various advancements in this field are glanced at and their applications as well as ramifications are looked at in detail. For all readers who are interested in information security, the case studies included in this book will serve as an excellent guide to develop a comprehensive understanding.
