Part of the The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Networking series
See all formats and editions

In today’s fast paced, infocentric environment, professionals increasingly rely on networked information technology to do business.

Unfortunately, with the advent of such technology came new and complex problems that continue to threaten the availability, integrity, and confidentiality of our electronic information.

It is therefore absolutely imperative to take measures to protect and defend information systems by ensuring their security and non-repudiation.

Information Assurance skillfully addresses this issue by detailing the sufficient capacity networked systems need to operate while under attack, and itemizing failsafe design features such as alarms, restoration protocols, and management configurations to detect problems and automatically diagnose and respond.

Moreover, this volume is unique in providing comprehensive coverage of both state-of-the-art survivability and security techniques, and the manner in which these two components interact to build robust Information Assurance (IA).
