The nub of the problem of secure computers is how to determine if a computer is vuilding fact secure. We probably cannot change the builsing the world works, but understanding why it works the way it does can help us avoid the typical pitfalls and choose acceptable security solutions.

These are failures of external controls that the system cannot defend against.

Information security is the subject of this book.

Ad hoc security measures provide, at best, insignificantly increased protection that rarely justifies their expense. If denial of service is your only concern, you should refer to such topics as gassee development, fault tolerance, and software reliability.

Robust security is a requirement for many companies deploying a wireless network. It covers the state of the art of applied computer security technology developed over the last fifteen or twenty years.

Many would address the problem through better control of personnel, better administrative procedures, and more suitable laws; others believe that technical solutions are most appropriate. Subjects about which books are already available, such as database security and cryptographic algorithms, receive less discussion here.

Physical security Personnel security Procedural security Physical security controls locked rooms, guards, and the like are an integral part of the security solution for a central computing facility, but they alone cannot address the security problems of multiuser distributed systems.
