  • Operational Semantics and Verification of Security Protocols by Cas Cremers

    By Cas Cremers

    Security protocols are commonly used to make sure safe communications over insecure networks, reminiscent of the net or airwaves. those protocols use robust cryptography to avoid intruders from studying or enhancing the messages. in spite of the fact that, utilizing cryptography isn't sufficient to make sure their correctness. mixed with their standard small dimension, which means that you could simply check their correctness, this usually leads to incorrectly designed protocols.

    The authors current a strategy for officially describing defense protocols and their setting. this system contains a version for describing protocols, their execution version, and the intruder version. The types are prolonged with a few well-defined safeguard homes, which catch the notions of right protocols, and secrecy of information. The technique can be utilized to end up that protocols fulfill those houses. in accordance with the version they've got constructed a device set referred to as Scyther that could instantly locate assaults on safety protocols or end up their correctness. In case reviews they express the applying of the method in addition to the effectiveness of the research tool.

    The methodology’s powerful mathematical foundation, the powerful separation of issues within the version, and the accompanying instrument set make it very best either for researchers and graduate scholars of data safeguard or formal equipment and for complicated execs designing serious defense protocols.

  • Einführung in die Kryptographie (Springer-Lehrbuch) by Johannes Buchmann

    By Johannes Buchmann

    "Bist du nicht willig, so brauch` ich Gewalt" -- ein Grundsatz, der mit moderner PC-Leistungsfähigkeit auch für einige Verschlüsselungsmethoden gilt. Im Zuge der immer weiter gehenden Vernetzung von Unternehmen, Haushalten und Privatpersonen wird ein gesicherter Datentransfer immer wichtiger. Auch wenn einige Institutionen gern suggerieren, guy befinde sich in einem hochgradig mafia-nahem Zustand, wünsche guy eine sichere Verschlüsselung für inner most email, zeigen politische Streitereien um weltweite Abkommen die Brisanz und Wichtigkeit starker Verschlüsselungstechniken.

    Im Springer-Verlag ist das schmale Buch Einführung in die Kryptographie erschienen, das sich aus mathematischer Perspektive mit unterschiedlichsten Verschlüsselungstechnologien befaßt. In diesem Buch -- aus einer Vorlesungsreihe entstanden -- beschreibt Johannes Buchmann auf handlichen 2 hundred Seiten für mathematisch gebildete Interessierte verschiedene Verfahren wie z.B. DES oder RSA, das vielen sicher durch "PGP" ein Begriff ist. Jedes Verfahren ist in seiner Funktionsweise und seiner mathematischen Konstruktion erklärt. Auf die Schwachstellen jedes Algorithmus wird hingewiesen. Buchmann stellt nicht nur RSA oder DES vor, sondern diskutiert auch Wahrscheinlichkeit und perfekte Sicherheit aus mathematischer Perspektive. Public Key-Verfahren werden ergänzt durch einen umfangreichen Abschnitt über die Verfahren, die für digitale Signaturen angewandt werden.

    "Klein, aber fein" ist das Charakteristikum des Buches: Jeder Abschnitt ist mit (für Mathematiker) sehr anschaulichen Beispielen und kleinen Übungsaufgaben versehen. Entwickler finden hier eine reiche Quelle der Hintergründe, die sie für eine Implementation wissen müssen. --Susanne Schmidt

  • Noiseless Steganography: The Key to Covert Communications by Abdelrahman Desoky

    By Abdelrahman Desoky

    Among the positive aspects that make Noiseless Steganography: the foremost to Covert Communications a primary of its style:

    • The first to comprehensively hide Linguistic Steganography
    • The first to comprehensively cover Graph Steganography
    • The first to comprehensively conceal video game Steganography

    Although the target of steganography is to avoid adversaries from suspecting the lifestyles of covert communications, such a lot books at the topic current superseded steganography methods which are detectable via human and/or laptop examinations. those methods frequently fail simply because they camouflage facts as a detectable noise via changing electronic pictures, audio documents, textual content, and so on. besides the fact that, such alteration increases suspicion and makes the message discernible via detecting its noise.

    Addressing such shortcomings, Noiseless Steganography: the main to Covert Communications introduces a unique Noiseless Steganography Paradigm (Nostega). instead of hiding facts in noise or generating noise, Nostega camouflages messages in addition to their transmission within the kind of unquestionable info within the generated steganographic hide. The ebook explains tips on how to use Nostega to figure out appropriate domain names in a position to producing unsuspicious steganographic hide during which messages are embedded within the kind of blameless information that's suitable with the selected area. It provides a few Nostega-based methodologies, together with yet no longer constrained to:

    • A novel hide variety that allows information to be hidden in plotted graphs
    • A novel method that pursues renowned video games reminiscent of chess, checkers, crosswords, and dominoes to hide messages
    • Comprehensive assurance of linguistic steganography
    • Several novel linguistic steganography methodologies in line with common Language Processing and Computational Linguistic concepts reminiscent of: Education-Centric-Based, Summarization-Based, average Language iteration dependent, Random-Series-Based, e-mail Headers established, automated shaggy dog story new release dependent, List-Based, and automated Notes iteration dependent

    The first e-book to supply complete insurance of Linguistic Steganography, Graph Steganography, and online game Steganography, it discusses the implementation and steganalysis validation of ten Nostega-based methodologies. It describes tips to determine covert channels via utilizing the chosen area to function justification for the interplay and supply of the canopy one of the speaking events. rather than utilizing modern steganography ways to camouflage your information as noise that's assumed to seem innocent, the textual content provide you with the instruments to avoid your adversaries from suspecting the lifestyles of covert communications altogether.

  • Predictive Modular Neural Networks: Applications to Time by Vassilios Petridis

    By Vassilios Petridis

    The topic of this e-book is predictive modular neural networks and their ap­ plication to time sequence difficulties: type, prediction and id. The meant viewers is researchers and graduate scholars within the fields of neural networks, computing device technological know-how, statistical trend acceptance, records, regulate thought and econometrics. Biologists, neurophysiologists and clinical engineers can also locate this booklet attention-grabbing. within the final decade the neural networks neighborhood has proven severe curiosity in either modular equipment and time sequence difficulties. comparable curiosity has been expressed for a few years in different fields to boot, so much significantly in data, keep watch over conception, econometrics and so on. there's a significant overlap (not continually famous) of rules and strategies among those fields. Modular neural networks come by way of many different names, for example a number of versions, neighborhood types and combinations of specialists. the elemental inspiration is to independently increase numerous "subnetworks" (modules), that could practice an analogous or re­ lated projects, after which use an "appropriate" approach for combining the outputs of the subnetworks. the various anticipated merits of this technique (when in comparison with using "lumped" or "monolithic" networks) are: more desirable functionality, lowered improvement time and bigger flexibility. for example, if a module is faraway from the community and changed through a brand new module (which might practice an analogous activity extra efficiently), it's going to no longer be essential to retrain the mixture network.
