Data and Goliath : the hidden battles to collect your data and control your world by Bruce Schneier( Book )

24 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Japanese and held by 2,323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Your cell phone provider tracks your location and knows who's with you. Your online and in-store purchasing patterns are recorded, and reveal if you're unemployed, sick, or pregnant. Your e-mails and texts expose your intimate and casual friends. Google knows what you're thinking because it saves your private searches. Facebook can determine your sexual orientation without you ever mentioning it. The powers that surveil us do more than simply store this information. Corporations use surveillance to manipulate not only the news articles and advertisements we each see, but also the prices we're offered. Governments use surveillance to discriminate, censor, and chill free speech, and put people in danger worldwide. And both sides share this information with each other or, even worse, lose it to cybercriminals in huge data breaches. Much of this is voluntary: we cooperate with corporate surveillance because it promises us convenience, and we submit to government surveillance because it promises us protection. The result is a mass surveillance society of our own making. But have we given up more than we've gained? Security expert Bruce Schneier offers another path, one that values both security and privacy. He shows us what we can do to reform our government surveillance programs and shake up surveillance-based business models, while also providing tips for you to protect your privacy every day."--Jacket

Covering the latest developments in practical cryptographic techniques, this new edition shows programmers who design computer applications, networks, and storage systems how they can build security into their software and systems. -- from back cover
Schneier on security by Bruce Schneier( )

20 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays on security: on security technology, on security policy, and on how security works in the real world was previously published between June 2002 and June 2008. They offer a computer security expert's insights into a wide range of security issues, including the risk of identity theft (vastly overrated), the long-range security threat of unchecked presidential power, why computer security is fundamentally an economic problem, the industry power struggle over controlling your computer, and why national ID cards won't make us safer, only poorer. Schneier recognizes that the ultimate security risk is people and that many security paractices are, in fact, secuirty risks. -- From publisher description

Smart card research and applications : third international conference, CARDIS'98, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, September 1998 : proceedings by J.-J Quisquater( Book )

23 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Smart cards have been driven by the need for a secure, portable, computing platform. Hence it is no surprise that security considerations dominated their research. The CARDIS conferences were created to provide a forum for this research. CARDIS 1998 is the third international conference on Smart Card Research and Advanced Applications, held in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium, 14-16 Sept- ber 1998. The ?rst CARDIS was held in Lille, France in November 1994, and the second was held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands in September 1996. The fourth CARDIS is scheduled to take place in Bristol, UK in September 2000 ( This volume contains the refereed papers presented at CARDIS 1998. These 35 papers were ?rst published in a pre-proceedings and distributed to the - tendees at the conference; they have subsequently been revised and updated for this volume. The papers discuss all aspects of smart-card research: Java cards, elect- nic commerce applications, e?ciency, security (including cryptographic al- rithms, cryptographic protocols, and authentication), and architecture. Subm- sions from Europe, the U.S., Asia, and Australia show that this is indeed an international area of research, and one that is becoming more popular as pr- tical demand for smart cards increase. We wish to thank the Program Committee members who did an excellent job in reviewing papers and providing feedback to the authors
Economics of information security and privacy III by Bruce Schneier( )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Workshop on the Economics of Information Security (WEIS) is the leading forum for interdisciplinary scholarship on information security, combining expertise from the fields of economics, social science, business, law, policy and computer science. Prior workshops have explored the role of incentives between attackers and defenders, identified market failures dogging Internet security, and assessed investments in cyber-defense. Current contributions build on past efforts using empirical and analytic tools to not only understand threats, but also strengthen security through novel evaluations of available solutions. Economics of Information Security and Privacy III addresses the following questions: how should information risk be modeled given the constraints of rare incidence and high interdependence; how do individuals' and organizations' perceptions of privacy and security color their decision making; how can we move towards a more secure information infrastructure and code base while accounting for the incentives of stakeholders?

Click here to kill everybody : security and survival in a hyper-connected world by Bruce Schneier( Book )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The internet is powerful, but it is not safe. As "smart" devices proliferate the risks will get worse, unless we act now. From driverless cars to smart thermostats, from autonomous stock-trading systems to drones equipped with their own behavioral algorithms, the internet now has direct effects on the physical world. While this computerized future, often called the Internet of Things, carries enormous potential, best-selling author Bruce Schneier argues that catastrophe awaits in its new vulnerabilities and dangers. Forget data theft: cutting-edge digital attackers can now literally crash your car, pacemaker, and home security system, as well as everyone else's. In Click Here to Kill Everybody, Schneier explores the risks and security implications of our new, hyper-connected era, and lays out common-sense policies that will allow us to enjoy the benefits of this omnipotent age without falling prey to the consequences of its insecurity. From principles for a more resilient Internet of Things to a recipe for sane government oversight, Schneier's vision is required reading for anyone invested in human flourishing"--
