Description

Information Security Policies and Actions in Modern Integrated Systems is an overview of current research in theoretical and practical aspects of security in distributed systems, in particular in information systems and related security tools. Issues treated in the book are security in XML-based management systems, security of multimedia data, technology and use of smart cards, applications of cryptography, security of distributed applications and adherence to standards, model and security issues associated with the organization of components (architectures) of information systems, such as networked systems (Internet and WWW-based), client/server architectures, and layered architectures. Contributions come both from the academic and the industrial field.

Reviews and Testimonials

Fugini and Bellettini have done a great job in putting together this book. It is a comprehensive modern text that covers the state of the art. Each of the well-readable chapters is written by top scientific authorities. The book is well-balanced and suited both as a textbook for university courses and as an up-to-date reference for active scientists. I highly recommend it to everybody interested in information security.
