Watermarking techniques involve the concealment of information within a text or images and the transmission of this information to the receiver with minimum distortion. This is a very new area of research. The techniques will have a significant effect on defence, business, copyright protection and other fields where information needs to be protected at all costs from attackers. This book presents the recent advances in the theory and implementation of watermarking techniques. It brings together, for the first time, the successful applications of intelligent paradigms (including comparisons with conventional methods) in many areas. The accompanying CD-Rom provides readers with source codes and executables to put into practice general topics in watermarking. Intelligent Watermarking Techniques will be of great value to undergraduate and postgraduate students in many disciplines, including engineering and computer science. It is also targeted at researchers, scientists and engineers.

Three submissions were merged into a single paper and two papers were merged into a single talk, yielding a total of 39 papers in the proceedings and 38 presen- tions at the conference. The revised versions of the 39 papers appearing in the proceedings were not subject to editorial review and the authors bear full - sponsibility for their contents. The best-paper award was awarded to the paper "Toward Basing Fully Homomorphic Encryption on Worst-Case Hardness" by Craig Gentry. The conference featured two invited presentations. This year we celebrated 25 years from the publication of the ground-breaking work of Sha? Goldwasser, Silvio Micali and Charles Racko? "The Knowledge Complexity of Interactive Proof-Systems.
Cryptographic access control (CAC) is an approach to securing data by encrypting it with a key, so that only the users in possession of the correct key are able to decrypt the data and/or perform further encryptions. Applications of cryptographic access control will benefit companies, governments and the military where structured access to information is essential.
The purpose of this book is to highlight the need for adaptability in cryptographic access control schemes that are geared for dynamic environments, such as the Internet. Adaptive Cryptographic Access Control presents the challenges of designing hierarchical cryptographic key management algorithms to implement Adaptive Access Control in dynamic environments and suggest solutions that will overcome these challenges.
Adaptive Cryptographic Access Control is a cutting-edge book focusing specifically on this topic in relation to security and cryptographic access control. Both the theoretical and practical aspects and approaches of cryptographic access control are introduced in this book. Case studies and examples are provided throughout this book.
The inaugural research program of the Institute for Mathematical Sciences at the National University of Singapore took place from July to December 2001 and was devoted to coding theory and cryptology. As part of the program, tutorials for graduate students and junior researchers were given by world-renowned scholars. These tutorials covered fundamental aspects of coding theory and cryptology and were designed to prepare for original research in these areas. The present volume collects the expanded lecture notes of these tutorials. The topics range from mathematical areas such as computational number theory, exponential sums and algebraic function fields through coding-theory subjects such as extremal problems, quantum error-correcting codes and algebraic-geometry codes to cryptologic subjects such as stream ciphers, public-key infrastructures, key management, authentication schemes and distributed system security.
Cryptology is increasingly becoming one of the most essential topics of interest in everyday life. Digital communication happens by transferring data between at least two participants - But do we want to disclose private information while executing a sensitive bank transfer? How about allowing third-party entities to eavesdrop on private calls while performing an important secret business discussion? Do we want to allow ambient communication concerning us to be manipulated while control software is driving our autonomous car along a steep slope? Questions like these make it clear why issues of security are a great concern in our increasingly augmented world.Cryptology for Engineers is a study of digital security in communications systems. The book covers the cryptographical functionalities of ciphering, hash generation, digital signature generation, key management and random number generation, with a clear sense of the mathematical background on the one hand and engineers' requirements on the other. Numerous examples computable by hand or with a small additional cost in most cases are provided inside.

TCC 2009, the 6th Theory of Cryptography Conference, was held in San Fr- cisco, CA, USA, March 15-17, 2009. TCC 2009 was sponsored by the Inter- tional Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR) and was organized in - operation with the Applied Crypto Group at Stanford University. The General Chair of the conference was Dan Boneh. The conference received 109 submissions, of which the Program Comm- tee selected 33 for presentation at the conference. These proceedings consist of revised versions of those 33 papers. The revisions were not reviewed, and the authors bear full responsibility for the contents of their papers. The conference program also included two invited talks: "The Di?erential Privacy Frontier," given by Cynthia Dwork and "Some Recent Progress in Lattice-Based Crypt- raphy," given by Chris Peikert. I thank the Steering Committee of TCC for entrusting me with the resp- sibility for the TCC 2009 program. I thank the authors of submitted papers for their contributions. The general impression of the Program Committee is that the submissions were of very high quality, and there were many more papers we wanted to accept than we could. The review process was therefore very - warding but the selection was very delicate and challenging. I am grateful for the dedication, thoroughness, and expertise ofthe ProgramCommittee. Obse- ing the way the members of the committee operated makes me as con?dent as possible of the outcome of our selection process.

Since the mid 1990s, data hiding has been proposed as an enabling technology for securing multimedia communication, and is now used in various applications including broadcast monitoring, movie fingerprinting, steganography, video indexing and retrieval, and image authentication. Data hiding and cryptographic techniques are often combined to complement each other, thus triggering the development of a new research field of multimedia security. Besides, two related disciplines, steganalysis and data forensics, are increasingly attracting researchers and becoming another new research field of multimedia security. This journal, LNCS Transactions on Data Hiding and Multimedia Security, aims to be a forum for all researchers in these emerging fields, publishing both original and archival research results.

Vulnerability analysis, also known as vulnerability assessment, is a process that defines, identifies, and classifies the security holes, or vulnerabilities, in a computer, network, or application. In addition, vulnerability analysis can forecast the effectiveness of proposed countermeasures and evaluate their actual effectiveness after they are put into use. Vulnerability Analysis and Defense for the Internet provides packet captures, flow charts and pseudo code, which enable a user to identify if an application/protocol is vulnerable. This edited volume also includes case studies that discuss the latest exploits.

Databases are the nerve center of our economy. Every piece of your
personal information is stored there-medical records, bank
accounts, employment history, pensions, car registrations, even
your children's grades and what groceries you buy. Database attacks
are potentially crippling-and relentless.
The increasing relevance of security to real-life applications, such as electronic commerce and Internet banking, is attested by the fast-growing number of - search groups, events, conferences, and summer schools that address the study of foundations for the analysis and the design of security aspects. The Int- national School on Foundations of Security Analysis and Design (FOSAD, see http: //www.sti.uniurb.it/events/fosad/)has been one of the foremost events - tablishedwiththegoalofdisseminatingknowledgeinthiscriticalarea, especially for young researchers approaching the ?eld and graduate students coming from less-favoured and non-leading countries. The FOSAD school is held annually at the Residential Centre of Bertinoro (http: //www.ceub.it/), in the fascinating setting of a former convent and ep- copal fortress that has been transformed into a modern conference facility with computing services and Internet access. Since the ?rst school, in 2000, FOSAD hasattractedmorethan250participantsand50lecturersfromallovertheworld. A collection of tutorial lectures from FOSAD 2000 was published in Springer s LNCS volume 2171. Some of the tutorials given at the two successive schools (FOSAD 2001 and 2002) are gathered in a second volume, LNCS 2946. To c- tinue this tradition, the present volume collects a set of tutorials fromthe fourth FOSAD, held in 2004, and from FOSAD 2005."
"Machine Learning and Data Mining for Computer Security" provides an overview of the current state of research in machine learning and data mining as it applies to problems in computer security. This book has a strong focus on information processing and combines and extends results from computer security.
The first part of the book surveys the data sources, the learning and mining methods, evaluation methodologies, and past work relevant for computer security. The second part of the book consists of articles written by the top researchers working in this area. These articles deals with topics of host-based intrusion detection through the analysis of audit trails, of command sequences and of system calls as well as network intrusion detection through the analysis of TCP packets and the detection of malicious executables.
This book fills the great need for a book that collects and frames work on developing and applying methods from machine learning and data mining to problems in computer security.
There are wide-ranging implications in information security beyond national defense. Securing our information has implications for virtually all aspects of our lives, including protecting the privacy of our ?nancial transactions and medical records, facilitating all operations of government, maintaining the integrity of national borders, securing important facilities, ensuring the safety of our food and commercial products, protecting the safety of our aviation system-even safeguarding the integrity of our very identity against theft. Information security is a vital element in all of these activities, particularly as information collection and distribution become ever more connected through electronic information delivery systems and commerce. This book encompasses results of research investigation and technologies that can be used to secure, protect, verify, and authenticate objects and inf- mation from theft, counterfeiting, and manipulation by unauthorized persons and agencies. The book has drawn on the diverse expertise in optical sciences and engineering, digital image processing, imaging systems, information p- cessing, mathematical algorithms, quantum optics, computer-based infor- tion systems, sensors, detectors, and biometrics to report novel technologies that can be applied to information-security issues. The book is unique because it has diverse contributions from the ?eld of optics, which is a new emerging technology for security, and digital techniques that are very accessible and can be interfaced with optics to produce highly e?ective security systems.
In the second edition of this very successful book, Tony Sammes and Brian Jenkinson show how the contents of computer systems can be recovered, even when hidden or subverted by criminals. Equally important, they demonstrate how to insure that computer evidence is admissible in court. Updated to meet ACPO 2003 guidelines, Forensic Computing: A Practitioner's Guide offers: methods for recovering evidence information from computer systems; principles of password protection and data encryption; evaluation procedures used in circumventing a system's internal security safeguards, and full search and seizure protocols for experts and police officers.
