In the information age, it is critical that we understand the implications and exposure of the activities and data documented on the Internet. Improved efficiencies and the added capabilities of instant communication, high-speed connectivity to browsers, search engines, websites, databases, indexing, searching and analytical applications have made information technology (IT) and the Internet a vital issued for public and private enterprises. The downside is that this increased level of complexity and vulnerability presents a daunting challenge for enterprise and personal security. Internet Searches for Vetting, Investigations, and Open-Source Intelligence provides an understanding of the implications of the activities and data documented by individuals on the Internet. It delineates a much-needed framework for the responsible collection and use of the Internet for intelligence, investigation, vetting, and open-source information. This book makes a compelling case for action as well as reviews relevant laws, regulations, and rulings as they pertain to Internet crimes, misbehaviors, and individuals’ privacy. Exploring technologies such as social media and aggregate information services, the author outlines the techniques and skills that can be used to leverage the capabilities of networked systems on the Internet and find critically important data to complete an up-to-date picture of people, employees, entities, and their activities. Outlining appropriate adoption of legal, policy, and procedural principles—and emphasizing the careful and appropriate use of Internet searching within the law—the book includes coverage of cases, privacy issues, and solutions for common problems encountered in Internet searching practice and information usage, from internal and external threats. The book is a valuable resource on how to utilize open-source, online sources to gather important information and screen and vet employees, prospective employees, corporate partners, and vendors.

Safety-critical devices, whether medical, automotive, or industrial, are increasingly dependent on the correct operation of sophisticated software. Many standards have appeared in the last decade on how such systems should be designed and built. Developers, who previously only had to know how to program devices for their industry, must now understand remarkably esoteric development practices and be prepared to justify their work to external auditors. Embedded Software Development for Safety-Critical Systems discusses the development of safety-critical systems under the following standards: IEC 61508; ISO 26262; EN 50128; and IEC 62304. It details the advantages and disadvantages of many architectural and design practices recommended in the standards, ranging from replication and diversification, through anomaly detection to the so-called "safety bag" systems. Reviewing the use of open-source components in safety-critical systems, this book has evolved from a course text used by QNX Software Systems for a training module on building embedded software for safety-critical devices, including medical devices, railway systems, industrial systems, and driver assistance devices in cars. Although the book describes open-source tools for the most part, it also provides enough information for you to seek out commercial vendors if that’s the route you decide to pursue. All of the techniques described in this book may be further explored through hundreds of learned articles. In order to provide you with a way in, the author supplies references he has found helpful as a working software developer. Most of these references are available to download for free.

In order to perform effective analysis of today’s information security systems, numerous components must be taken into consideration. This book presents a well-organized, consistent solution created by the author, which allows for precise multilevel analysis of information security systems and accounts for all of the significant details. Enabling the multilevel modeling of secure systems, the quality of protection modeling language (QoP-ML) approach provides for the abstraction of security systems while maintaining an emphasis on quality protection. This book introduces the basis of the QoP modeling language along with all the advanced analysis modules, syntax, and semantics. It delineates the steps used in cryptographic protocols and introduces a multilevel protocol analysis that expands current understanding. Introduces quality of protection evaluation of IT Systems Covers the financial, economic, and CO2 emission analysis phase Supplies a multilevel analysis of Cloud-based data centers Details the structures for advanced communication modeling and energy analysis Considers security and energy efficiency trade-offs for the protocols of wireless sensor network architectures Includes case studies that illustrate the QoP analysis process using the QoP-ML Examines the robust security metrics of cryptographic primitives Compares and contrasts QoP-ML with the PL/SQL, SecureUML, and UMLsec approaches by means of the SEQUAL framework The book explains the formal logic for representing the relationships between security mechanisms in a manner that offers the possibility to evaluate security attributes. It presents the architecture and API of tools that ensure automatic analysis, including the automatic quality of protection analysis tool (AQoPA), crypto metrics tool (CMTool), and security mechanisms evaluation tool (SMETool). The book includes a number of examples and case studies that illustrate the QoP analysis process by the QoP-ML. Every operation defined by QoP-ML is described within parameters of security metrics to help you better evaluate the impact of each operation on your system's security.

Here’s an interesting revelation ... during the plague of Athens in 430 BC, the Greeks realized that people who had previously survived smallpox did not contract the disease a second time. In fact, these survivors were often called upon to attend to those afflicted with smallpox. Consider this book as the continuum of the Immunization legacy as applied to the digital world. The business of attack-as-a-service (AaaS) is real and is not going away any time soon. The Russians and Chinese have recently been suspected of providing AaaS to nefarious organizations. This book offers the most innovative solution to this critical issue. The Cognitive Early Warning Predictive System (CEWPSTM) described in the book replicates the human immune system and creates its counterpart, "the digital immune system". A CEWPS inoculates critical systems with vaccination as a service (VaaS). This is achieved through its Smart VaccineTM, the holy grail of digital immunity. From the CEWPS arsenal, the early warning predictive component is the intelligent and self-trained AI reasoning engine that acquires knowledge from past attacks and predicts, probable incoming cyberattacks. The Cognitive Early Warning Predictive System Using the Smart Vaccine discusses asymmetric cyber warfare, the vulnerabilities of critical infrastructure, and the shortcomings of the anti-virus technologies. Next, it describes the enabling technologies required to build a "Digital Immune System." CEWPS is the new paradigm that extends the continuum of cyber security. This book includes vivid attack scenarios on some major infrastructures and describes how CEWPS is used to deter and annihilate the attacks.

Revisit the thrilling Sam Owens series, with book two in the series from New York Times bestselling author J.T. Ellison. Dr. Samantha Owens is starting over: new city, new job, new man, new life. But before she’s even unpacked her office at Georgetown University’s forensic pathology department, she’s called to consult on a case that’s rocked the capital and the country. An unknown pathogen released into the Washington Metro has caused nationwide panic. Three people died—just three. Amid the media frenzy and Homeland Security alarm bells, Sam painstakingly dissects the lives of those three victims and makes an unsettling conclusion. This is no textbook terrorist, but an assassin whose motive is deeply personal and far from understandable. Xander Whitfield, a former army ranger and Sam’s new boyfriend, knows about seeing the world in shades of gray. About feeling compelled to do the wrong thing for the right reasons. Only his disturbing kinship with a killer can lead Sam to the truth…and once more into the line of fire. Originally published in 2012 “Shocking suspense, compelling characters and fascinating forensic details.” —Lisa Gardner, # 1 New York Times bestselling author “A terrific thriller…fans of forensic mysteries, such as those by Patricia Cornwell, should immediately add this series to their A-lists.” —Booklist
