Security engineering : a guide to building dependable distributed systems by Ross Anderson ( Book )
28 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 1,033 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This reference guide to creating high quality security software covers the complete suite of security applications referred to as end2end security. It illustrates basic concepts of security engineering through real-world examples
Information hiding : first international workshop, Cambridge, U.K., May 30-June 1, 1996 : proceedings by Ross Anderson ( Book )
16 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book constitutes the strictly refereed post-workshop proceedings of the First International Workshop on Information Hiding, held in Cambridge, UK, in May/June 1996, within the research programme in computer security, cryptology and coding theory organized by the volume editor at the Isaac Newton Institute in Cambridge. Work on information hiding has been carried out over the last few years within different research communities, mostly unaware of each other's existence. The 26 papers presented define the state of the art and lay the foundation for a common terminology. This workshop is very likely to be seen at some point as one of those landmark events that mark the birth of a new scientific discipline
Fast software encryption : Cambridge Security Workshop, Cambridge, U.K., December 9-11, 1993 : proceedings by Ross Anderson ( Book )
16 editions published in 1994 in English and Italian and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume contains the refereed papers presented at the International Workshop on Software Encryption Algorithms, held at Cambridge University, U.K. in December 1993. The collection of papers by representatives of all relevant research centers gives a thorough state-of-the-art report on all theoretical aspects of encryption algorithms and takes into account the new demands from new applications, as for example from the data-intensive multimedia applications. The 26 papers are organized in sections on block ciphers, stream ciphers, software performance, cryptanalysis, hash functions and hybrid ciphers, and randomness and nonlinearity."--PUBLISHER'S WEBSITE

Personal Medical Information Security, Engineering, and Ethics by Ross Anderson ( )
3 editions published in 1997 in English and German and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book originates from an international workshop on personal information held at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Cambridge, UK, in June 1996. The workshop was organized under the joint sponsorship of the British Medical Association and the Isaac Newton Institute in the context of a six-month research program in computer security, cryptology, and coding theory. The revised workshop papers appearing in this volume reflect a lively interdisciplinary exchange of views and ideas between doctors, lawyers, privacy activists, and the computer security community. The volume gives a representative snapshot not merely of the state of the art of the medical computer security art in various countries, but of the complex interplay between human, political, and technical aspects

Murphy's Law, the fitness of evolving species, and the limits of software reliability by Robert M Brady ( Book )
2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "We tackle two problems of interest to the software assurance community. Firstly, existing models of software development (such as the waterfall and spiral models) are oriented towards one-off software development projects, while the growth of mass market computing has led to a world in which most software consists of packages which follow an evolutionary development model. This leads us to ask whether anything interesting and useful may be said about evolutionary development. We answer in the affirmative. Secondly, existing reliability growth models emphasise the Poisson distribution of individual software bugs, while the empirically observed reliability growth for large systems is asymptotically slower than this. We provide a rigorous explanation of this phenomenon. Our reliability growth model is inspired by statistical thermodynamics, but also applies to biological evolution. It is in close agreement with experimental measurements of the fitness of an evolving species and the reliability of commercial software products. However, it shows that there are significant differences between the evolution of software and the evolution of species. In particular, we establish maximisation properties corresponding to Murphy's law which work to the advantage of a biological species, but to the detriment of software reliability."

Database state : a report commissioned by the Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust LTD. by Ross Anderson ( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In recent years, the government has built or extended many central databases that hold information on every aspect of our lives, from health and education to welfare, law-enforcement and tax. This 'transformational government' programme was supposed to make public services better or cheaper, but it has been repeatedly challenged by controversies over effectiveness, privacy, legality and cost. This report charts these databases, creating the most comprehensive map so far of what has become Britain's database state."

Security in clinical information systems by Ross Anderson ( Book )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We have described the threats to the confidentiality, integrity and availability of personal health information in the light of experience in the UK and overseas, and proposed a clinical information security policy that enables the principle of patient consent to be enforced in the kind of heterogeneous distributed system currently under construction in the UK
