Computer systems are usually poor at keeping sensitive information out of the hands of daily users, even though most computer crimes are perpetrated by these same legitimate users. Because of the vast amount of sensitive information stored in today's computers and transversing computer networks, anyone designing a new computer system or updating an old one must pay serious attention to the security problem by investigating all possible means of unauthorized data access.
This book is for the computer professional or student who wants to understand and implement technical solutions to computer security problems. Building a Secure Computer System explains state-of-the-art computer security technology that addresses the major threats to security — information theft and tampering by insiders. It is a practical guide that describes how to use the latest software and hardware techniques in all stages of development — from early design inception to the implementation and daily operation of the computer facility.
A classical text that eveybody in IT security must have read. Still as valid after 15 years.
