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.
