Excerpt
Introduction: After more than two decades of research, security in computer information systems remains one of the major issues of the day. While significant technological advances have been (and continue to be) made, the general problem of security has assumed larger and more complex dimensions-attributed in a large part to the development and pervasive use of computer networks. Computers in industry, universities, and government laboratories are now commonly part of local area networks which are in turn connected to larger regional, national and international networks. Many computers in businesses and homes have dial-up accessibility to other computers in this same web of interconnected networks. Major efforts have focused on the development of network communication protocols for efficient and reliable transmission of information while less attention has been devoted to the problems of security. In response to a universal acknowledgement of the need for information security, circumstances are changing?
