Example text

Knowing what has worked, and more importantly what has failed, in other applications is a great help in developing judgment. It can also save a lot of money. Preface The purpose of this book is to give a solid introduction to security engineering, as we understand it at the beginning of the twenty-first century. My goal is that it works at four different levels: 1. As a textbook that you can read from one end to the other over a few days as an introduction to the subject. The book is to be used mainly by the working IT professional who needs to learn about the subject, but it can also be used in a one-semester course in a university.

4. As an original scientific contribution in which I have tried to draw out the common principles that underlie security engineering, and the lessons that people building one kind of system should have learned from others. In the many years I have been working in security, I keep coming across these. For example, a simple attack on stream ciphers wasn’t known to the people who designed a common antiaircraft fire control radar so it was easy to jam; while a trick well known to the radar community wasn’t understood by banknote printers and people who design copyright marking schemes, which led to a quite general attack on most digital watermarks.

As time goes on, and security mechanisms are used more and more by the people who control a system’s design to gain some commercial advantage over the other people who use it, we can expect conflicts, confusion and the deceptive use of language to increase. ’’ The security engineer should develop sensitivity to the different nuances of meaning that common words acquire in different applications, and to be able to formalize what the security policy and target actually are. That may sometimes be inconvenient for clients who wish to get away with something, but, in general, robust security design requires that the protection goals are made explicit.
