            Security in Wireless Communication Networks

            Security in Wireless Communication Networks (Hardback)

            By Ye, Feng; Qian, Yi; Chen, Hsiao-Hwa

            Wireless security is a very important topic and attracting more and more attention from industry, research, and academia. There is a need for a comprehensive book to investigate and to summarize the recent advances in wireless communication network security. This book will serve ...the purpose to thoroughly investigate security issues in emerging wireless access communication networks. This book addresses the security for wireless communication networks. Unlike wired communication networks that have some degree of physical security, physical security in wireless communication networks is impossible to achieve on wireless links (because of the broadcast nature) and therefore security attacks on information flow are the most widespread. Modification of information is possible because of the nature of the channel and the mobility of nodes. The radio channel is harsh and subject to interference, fading, multipath, and high error rates. As a result, packet losses are common even without security threats. An opponent can make use of these natural impairments to modify information and also render the information unavailable. This book will address all these issues. Special attention will be paid to wireless specific issues, e.g., trade-offs between security and power consumption, adaptively changing security protocols in response to the radio channel, etc. The book can be used as a supporting textbook for students on Wireless Security courses, offering the fundamentals of tele-communication and mathematics and cryptographic techniques. This allows the reader to select one specific wireless network of interest after going through the basics of mathematics and cryptographic techniques.

            Financial market reform has focused chiefly on the threats to stability arising from the risky, uncontrolled activity of the leaders of financial institutions. Nevertheless, organized crime, white-collar crime, and corruption have a huge impact on financial systems worldwide and ...must also be confronted if true reform is to be achieved. A collection of articles written by experts in their fields of study, Financial Crimes: A Threat to Global Security spotlights the importance of addressing the problem of illegal financial activity as part of a greater comprehensive plan for reforming the financial sector. Drawn from the 23rd Annual Meeting of the Academic Council on the United Nations System (ACUNS) held in Vienna, the book explores the major themes discussed at this elite symposium. In the first section, the contributors examine changing concepts in security over the course of history and across nations. They discuss how an event in Austria led to the implementation of a new security philosophy that is now followed by the majority of the European Union. The book examines the diverse models of preventing security threats that have grown from that idea as well as the gradual expansion of the role of the security council of the United Nations. The next section analyzes the present state of security worldwide and examines the wide array of criminal activity that plagues the financial sector. Expert contributors reveal methods to identify certain types of behavior and criminals as well as efforts to combat illegal activity-including the role of the media. The final section investigates alternative approaches to preventing another worldwide financial disaster through investigative reporting, human factors analysis, legislative initiatives, and other methods. Filled with insight from international experts, the book highlights both the warning signs to illegal activity as well as the mos

            The rapid growth of software applications within healthcare organizations has made it essential to have defined methodologies and formal processes for the management of the entire IT portfolio. Utilizing a portfolio management framework throughout an application's lifecycle will ...provide the necessary structure to ensure that all new applications are properly evaluated, and once implemented, remain relevant while continuing to meet organizational requirements. While an organization may have a few large 'organization-wide' systems such as the EHR, lab or radiology systems, they also have a large quantity of other clinical, administrative and research systems. Some larger organizations now have hundreds of software applications to support and manage. The Information Technology (IT) staff must be able to implement new requests while still maintaining the current application portfolio. Utilizing a standard, repeatable, process will help to manage these large portfolios of software applications. This book will review the management of applications throughout their lifecycle, from initial request through disposition. Best practices dictate that every newly requested application undergoes analysis followed by an approval decision from the organization's governance committee. The initial implementation project must include activities to prepare for ongoing support while ensuring the application is compliant with all security, privacy and architecture requirements. An application spends years in operations and maintenance where changes occur regularly through configuration and release management, or additional projects. The cycle continues until disposition. Understanding when to dispose of an application is just as important as deciding when to implement a new one. A defined process for disposing of an application ensures all parts are properly removed or destroyed.
