Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This is an excellent text that should be read by every computer security professional and student." —Dick Kemmerer, University of California, Santa Barbara.

"This is the most complete book on information security theory, technology, and practice that I have encountered anywhere!" —Marvin Schaefer, Former Chief Scientist, National Computer Security Center, NSA

This highly anticipated book fully introduces the theory and practice of computer security. It is both a comprehensive text, explaining the most fundamental and pervasive aspects of the field, and a detailed reference filled with valuable information for even the most seasoned practitioner. In this one extraordinary volume the author incorporates concepts from computer systems, networks, human factors, and cryptography. In doing so, he effectively demonstrates that computer security is an art as well as a science.

Computer Security: Art and Science includes detailed discussions on:

  • The nature and challenges of computer security
  • The relationship between policy and security
  • The role and application of cryptography
  • The mechanisms used to implement policies
  • Methodologies and technologies for assurance
  • Vulnerability analysis and intrusion detection
  • Computer Security discusses different policy models, and presents mechanisms that can be used to enforce these policies. It concludes with examples that show how to apply the principles discussed in earlier sections, beginning with networks and moving on to systems, users, and programs.

    This important work is essential for anyone who needs to understand, implement, or maintain a secure network or computer system.

    Book News Annotation:

    Designed for both students and practitioners, this text provides an in-depth introduction to the theory and practice of computer security. The volume opens with a discussion of mathematical fundamentals and the principles of computer security. Subsequent chapters discuss policy, implementation, and assurance. A "practicum" section, in which the applications of both theory and policy are focused on realistic security situations, completes the volume. Bishop teaches computer science at the U. of California, Davis.
    Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    Synopsis:

    Includes bibliographical references (p. 993-1062) and index.

    Synopsis:

    The importance of computer security has increased dramatically during the past few years. Bishop provides a monumental reference for the theory and practice of computer security. Comprehensive in scope, this book covers applied and practical elements, theory, and the reasons for the design of applications and security techniques.

    I used this book for a grad course in Informaton Assurance.

    In 2005, I was in a CISSP "boot camp". On all the subjects covered, I thought, "That's in the Bishop book","That too"... I had sold my book at the end of the semester - but I'm buying it again for my permanent bookshelf.

    I recommend this book for anyone especially those new to the field of IA.
