Software systems safety by NATO Advanced Study Institute on Software Systems Safety( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until quite recently, the correctness and security of software systems was a largely theoretical problem relevant only for a small group of computer specialists. Today it is a fundamental problem for society at large, with security breaches in banking software, malware attacks and bugs in programs affecting millions of people and making the headlines almost daily. The computer science community is developing verification and synthesis tools which will mechanize ever more tasks in the design of secure programs. This book presents the papers delivered at the NATO Advanced Study Institute (ASI) S

Engineering dependable software systems by M Broy( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Because almost all technical systems are more or less interfaced with software these days, attacks against computer systems can cause considerable economic and physical damage. For this reason, understanding the dependability of such systems, as well as the improvement of cyber security and its development process, are amongst the most challenging and crucial issues in current computer science research. This book contains the lectures from the NATO Advanced STudy INstitute (ASI) Summer School entitled Engineering Dependable Software Systems, held in Marktoberdorf, Germany in July and August 2012. This tow week course for young computer scientists and mathematicians working in the field of formal software and systems was designed to give an in-depth presentation of state-of-the-art topics in the field, as well as promoting international contacts and collaboration and the teaming up of leading researchers and young scientists. The 12 lectures delivered at the school and presented here cover subjects including: model-based testing, formal modeling and verification, decudtively verified software, model checking, performance anlysis, integrating risk analysis, embedded systems and model checking, among others. The book will be of interest to all those whose work involves the development of large-scale, reliable and secure software systems."--
Disposal of dangerous chemicals in urban areas and mega cities : role of oxides and acids of nitrogen in atmospheric chemistry by I Barnes( )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oxides and acids of nitrogen play an important role in regulating atmospheric radical levels, in particular, that of the OH radical the main initiator of the degradation of chemicals in the atmosphere. A comprehensive overview on the methods used to measure nitrogen oxides and acids in the troposphere is given and difficulties and artefacts associated with the use of the techniques for measurements in urban and mega city environments is illustrated. State-of-the-art methods for the measurement of OH and HO2 radicals are reviewed and recently recognised difficulties, in particular with the measurement of HO2 radicals, are highlighted. Other contributions to the book cover our present understanding of the gas, aqueous and particulate/aerosol phase atmospheric degradation chemistry of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) under NOx conditions typical of rural, urban and mega city environments. Examples of measurements of NOx and VOCs in the atmospheres of these environments are given, in particular for the megacities Cairo and Beijing, in conjunction with modelling studies which attempt to simulate the field observations using state-of-the art knowledge on the chemistry of the VOCs and radical levels

Defence against terrorism by NATO Advanced Training Course on Defense Against Terrorism( Book )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the lectures delivered at the NATO Advanced Training Course (ATC) ''Defence Against Terrorism'', held in Amman, Jordan, in January 2010. The purpose of this course, which brought together academics, experts on terrorism and interested parties from NATO countries, was to support NATO on defence issues related to terrorism. Following an introductory chapter which provides a general framework for understanding the history and causes of terrorism, the chapters which follow present a brief overview of alliance antiterrorism operations and their objectives; media and communications; weapons of mass destruction and the opportunities terrorists may have for obtaining them; combating the financing of terrorism post9/11; relationships between organized criminals and terrorists and lastly, the role and place of strategic communications in combating terrorism. The final chapter discusses future trends in terrorism by looking at the changing profile of terrorism with regard to ideology, organization and structure as well as the means and methods used by terrorists. The collection of these articles in book form covers many different perspectives on terrorism and helps to create an awareness of this growing problem, offering further factors for consideration in the improvement of defense against terrorism and response to related risks. This is a subject of interest not only to those directly involved in this field, but also to a wider audience
Analyzing different dimensions and new threats in defence against terrorism by NATO Advanced Training Course on Defence Against Terrorism( )

7 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Correlation between human factors and the prevention of disasters by NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Correlation between Human Factors and the Prevention of Catastrophes( )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The nuclear disaster at the Chernobyl power plant, devastating floods, landslides, droughts, the erosion of tailings dams and desertification are just some of the natural and manmade disasters which have afflicted the Ukraine and neighboring countries in recent years. It is therefore entirely appropriate that the NATO Advanced Research Workshop (ARW), Correlation between Human Factors and the Prevention of Catastrophes, was held in Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine in September 2011. This book presents the proceedings of the ARW, which analyzed accumulated European theoretical knowledge and practical ex
Climate change and its effects on water resources : issues of national and global security by Alper Baba( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

National and global security can be assessed in many ways but one underlying factor for all humanity is access to reliable sources of water for drinking, sanitation, food production and manufacturing industry. In many parts of the world, population growth and an escalating demand for water already threaten the sustainable management of available water supplies. Global warming, climate change and rising sea level are expected to intensify the resource sustainability issue in many water-stressed regions of the world by reducing the annual supply of renewable fresh water and promoting the intrusion of saline water into aquifers along sea coasts, where 50% of the global population reside. Pro-active resource management decisions are required, but such efforts would be futile unless reliable predictions can be made about the impact of the changing global conditions on the water cycle and the quality and availability of critical water reserves. Addressing this wide spectrum of issues, a team of expert authors discusses here the impacts of climate change on the global water resources, the long-term resource management goals at global and local scales, the data requirements and the scientific and technical advances necessary to mitigate the associated impacts
Environmental security and ecoterrorism by Hami Alpas( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, the concept of environmental security has been adapted to include preparedness for acts of ecoterrorism. This latter term has now become synonymous with environmental terrorism where the perpetrator uses the environment as a weapon to harm an opponent. The intended outcome is usually large-scale deaths, severe damage to the environment, and instilling fear in the general population. This book explores various facets of ecoterrorism including the role of the state in pursuing and maintaining environmental security, a review of the concept of ecoterrorism, food security challenges and weaknesses, technological countermeasures to enable rapid detection or response, and existing pollution sources and hazards that may serve as targets for terrorist acts. In sum, this volume provides a useful overview for both the layperson and experienced researchers
Non-traditional security threats and regional cooperation in the Southern Caucasus by NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Non-Traditional Security Threats and Regional Cooperation in the Southern Caucasus( )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains 16 papers, presented at the workshop: Non-Traditional Security Threats and Regional Cooperation in the Southern Caucasus, which was held in Istanbul, Turkey in October 2009. Whilst the Cold War did not exclude the existence of other threats, such as environmental hazards, organized crime, terrorism, economic instability and illegal immigration, it is only since the emphasis on East-West rivalry and the specter of nuclear confrontation between the two blocs have diminished that these have become articulated as major sources of concern for global security
Software safety and security : tools for analysis and verification by Tobias Nipkow( )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent decades have seen major advances in methods and tools for checking the safety and security of software systems. Automatic tools can now detect security flaws not only in programs of the order of a million lines of code, but also in high-level protocol descriptions. There has also been something of a breakthrough in the area of operating system verification. This book presents the lectures from the NATO Advanced Study Institute on Tools for Analysis and Verification of Software Safety and Security; a summer school held at Bayrischzell, Germany, in 2011. This Advanced Study Institute was divided into three integrated modules: Foundations of Safety and Security, Applications of Safety Analysis and Security Analysis. Subjects covered include mechanized game-based proofs of security protocols, formal security proofs, model checking, using and building an automatic program verifier and a hands-on introduction to interactive proofs. Bringing together many leading international experts in the field, this NATO Advanced Study Institute once more proved invaluable in facilitating the connections which will influence the quality of future research and the potential to transfer research into practice. This book will be of interest to all those whose work depends on the safety and security of software systems
Legal framework for strengthening nuclear security and combating nuclear terrorism by NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Legal Framework for Strengthening Nuclear Security and Combating Nuclear Terrorism( )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New international approaches to strengthening nuclear security and combating the threat of nuclear terrorism have been introduced throughout the first decade of the 21st century. The adoption of new and revised mandatory international legal instruments, as well as other non-binding initiatives and voluntary mechanisms, have led to improved security measures in this critical area, but there is still a need for substantive and procedural arrangements to be significantly strengthened.This book is a collection of the presentations and deliberations of participants at the NATO Advanced Research Wor
Warfare ecology : a new synthesis for peace and security by Gary E Machlis( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is specific and ambitious: to outline the distinctive elements, scope, and usefulness of a new and emerging field of applied ecology named warfare ecology. Based on a NATO Advanced Research Workshop held on the island of Vieques, Puerto Rico, the book provides both a theoretical overview of this new field and case studies that range from mercury contamination during World War I in Slovenia to the ecosystem impacts of the Palestinian occupation, and from the bombing of coral reefs of Vieques to biodiversity loss due to violent conflicts in Africa. Warfare Ecology also includes reprints of several classical papers that set the stage for the new synthesis described by the authors. Written for environmental scientists, military and humanitarian relief professionals, conservation managers, and graduate students in a wide range of fields, Warfare Ecology is a major step forward in understanding the relationship between war and ecological systems
Biopreparedness and public health : exploring synergies by Iris Hunger( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The terrorist use of diseases as bioweapons has been one of the major security concerns in recent years, particularly after the anthrax letter attacks in the USA in 2001. This uncertain threat of intentional outbreaks of diseases exists side by side with the constantly changing very real threat from diseases, epidemics and pandemics as recently illustrated by the H1N1 influenza pandemic, SARS, and H5N1 bird influenza events. This publication contains case studies on the public health planning for (un)usual disease outbreaks for 11 large and small countries with a focus on South Eastern Europe. In many countries, military entities traditionally play an important role in emergency response to disease outbreaks. In smaller countries, very little exists, however, in terms of specific biopreparedness efforts (in both the military and civilian area), which is at least partly due to a relatively low bioterrorism threat perception, and serious resource constraints. The uncertainty associated with the bioterrorism threat makes public health preparedness planning for such events politically and financially very difficult. The similarity of responding to bioterrorism events and natural disease outbreaks from a public health point of view suggests the merit of looking at biopreparedness as a part of overall health emergency planning, not as a separate effort

Perspectives on immigration and terrorism by NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Perspectives on Immigration and Terrorism( )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Globalization, accompanied by more options for communication, has led to sweeping changes which mean that the economic, political and cultural realities of one country may influence those of other countries, despite them being geographically far apart. Increased migration, both within and across national borders, serves only to amplify the potential problems that this can cause. Trauma and violence are often associated with the migration process, and even where they are not, migration and immigration represent a massive challenge to individuals which frequently involves loss of identity, alienation and discrimination. This book is a collection of 16 papers from the NATO sponsored meeting entitled Perspectives on Immigration and Terrorism, which took place in Milan (Italy) in March 2010, and which focused on the psychological and socio-cultural precursors to the radicalization of immigrant youth in Europe. Some of the topics explored include: factors of cultural and ideological opposition to western societies; the growing pressure of the process of secularization; illegal aspects of terrorism; immigration as a possible trajectory for political radicalism; the interaction between traumatic experience and immigration; acculturation and adjustment to a new culture; potential predictors of terrorist behavior and the role of a sense of national belonging. The book provides many perspectives on the way in which vulnerability to radical ideology may develop among individuals whose lack of personal and social resources may result in alienation, frustration and desperation. It also offers solutions which might be implemented to mitigate or prevent this problem
