In the second edition, the authors draw on their considerable experience to illuminate all facets of information security, from the basics to advanced cryptography and authentication secure Web and email services and emerging security standards. The authors go far beyond documenting standards and technology: they contrast competing schemes, explain strengths and weaknesses, and identify the crucial errors most likely to compromise secure systems.
The highlights of the book's extensive new coverage include Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), IPsec, SSL, X.509 and related PKI standards, and Web security.
