Network Security: A Decision and Game-Theoretic Approach by Tansu Alpcan

By Tansu Alpcan

Masking assault detection, malware reaction, set of rules and mechanism layout, privateness, and hazard administration, this finished paintings applies designated quantitative types derived from choice, regulate, and online game theories to figuring out assorted community defense difficulties. It offers the reader with a system-level theoretical knowing of community safeguard, and is key interpreting for researchers drawn to a quantitative method of key incentive and source allocation matters within the box. It additionally offers practitioners with an analytical origin that's precious for formalising decision-making tactics in community safeguard.

RF and Digital Signal Processing for Software-Defined Radio: A Multi-Standard Multi-Mode Approach

Comprehend the RF and electronic sign Processing ideas riding Software-defined Radios! Software-defined radio (SDR) know-how is a configurable, economical, and tool effective resolution for multimode and multistandard instant designs. This ebook describes software-defined radio suggestions and layout rules from the point of view of RF and electronic sign processing as played inside of the program.

Principles of Semiconductor Network Testing (Test & Measurement)

Ideas of Semiconductor community trying out gathers jointly entire info which try out and technique execs will locate beneficial. The thoughts defined may also help make sure that try out equipment and information gathered replicate genuine machine functionality, instead of 'testing the tester' or being misplaced within the noise ground.

Bayesian Signal Processing: Classical, Modern, and Particle Filtering Methods (Adaptive and Cognitive Dynamic Systems: Signal Processing, Learning, Communications and Control)

Provides the Bayesian method of statistical sign processing for various invaluable version units  This publication goals to offer readers a unified Bayesian remedy ranging from the fundamentals (Baye’s rule) to the extra complicated (Monte Carlo sampling), evolving to the next-generation model-based options (sequential Monte Carlo sampling).

If needed, the parameters can be updated periodically in certain time intervals. 18 Chapter 1. Introduction In addition to malware removal problem above, Chapter 7 presents optimal and robust control frameworks for similar dynamic resource allocation problems in security such as placement of malware filters and dynamic filtering of packets. In each case, the analytical frameworks provide the basis for scalable and quantitative security algorithms. 4 Discussion and Further Reading Due to its multi-faceted and interdisciplinary nature, it is difficult to cite a single source summarizing all of the issues in network security.

The book [25] presents intrusion detection systems (earlier version available online [26]). The recent work [50] adopts a game theoretic and analytical approach to security of wireless networks. There are also numerous practical network security books on specific architectures, systems, and protocols that discuss best practices and daily guidelines. Network Security Concepts 35 Although not discussed in detail in this work, cryptography is one of the main foundations of network security. A very nice historical perspective on cryptography can be found in [166].

E. networks and the Internet, can be described as a “virtual world” rather than the real one. This virtual environment provides unique advantages to the attackers such as anonymity as disguise due to difficulty of assessing identities (on the Internet) and a global reach. 2 Defenders Ideally, any individual using a networked system should be aware of security issues and be able to take defensive actions. In reality, however, the task of securing networks and systems falls squarely on the shoulders of system administrators.
