And it's a book for system and network administrators, and Internet service providers (ISPs) who are concerned about the growing toll that spam is taking on their systems - and are looking for a way to put an end to it once and for all."

Their principal goal is to pursue innovations in information technology that will improve people's lives. LCS members have been instrumental in the development of ARPAnet, the Internet, the Web, Ethernet, time-shared computers, UNIX, RSA encryption, the X Windows system, NuBus, and many other technologies."

Usable security : history, themes, and challenges by Simson Garfinkel( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There has been roughly 15 years of research into approaches for aligning research in Human Computer Interaction with computer Security, more colloquially known as "usable security." Although usability and security were once thought to be inherently antagonistic, today there is wide consensus that systems that are not usable will inevitably suffer security failures when they are deployed into the real world. Only by simultaneously addressing both usability and security concerns will we be able to build systems that are truly secure. This book presents the historical context of the work to date on usable security and privacy, creates a taxonomy for organizing that work, outlines current research objectives, presents lessons learned, and makes suggestions for future research
