Security Engineering

A Guide to Building Dependable Distributed Systems

by Ross Anderson

Now that there’s software in everything, how can you make anything secure? Understand how to engineer dependable systems with this newly updated classic  

In Security Engineering: A Guide to Building Dependable Distributed Systems, Third Edition Cambridge University professor Ross Anderson updates his classic textbook and teaches readers how to design, implement, and test systems to withstand both error and attack.  

This book became a best-seller in 2001 and helped establish the discipline of security engineering. By the second edition in 2008, underground dark markets had let the bad guys specialize and scale up; attacks were increasingly on users rather than on technology. The book repeated its success by showing how security engineers can focus on usability.
